Miami Open 2017 : WTA SemiFinal Preview

The WTA Miami final is set, between Caroline Wozniacki and Johanna Konta. The Dane and the Brit will go for the trophy. Seeded number 12 and number 11 respectively, both have knocked out big names, including Simona Halep, Venus Williams, Karolina Pliskova, Lucie Safarova and, Garbine Muguruza. If Konta wins it today, she will be the new world number 7, and if Wozniacki does it, she will be the new world number 8.

Konta leads the head-to-head, 1-0. The only meeting between them was held at the Australian Open, 2017, where Konta dismissed the Danish girl in straight sets, 6-3, 6-1, in the R32. Konta lost to Serena Williams, the eventual champion, in straight sets, in the quarter-final. While Wozniacki has dropped only a set en route to the final, which happened in the semi-final against Pliskova, Konta has dropped two, one each in the quarter-final against Simona Halep and one in the R64 Aliaksandra Sasnovich, both being tie-breaks.

Clearly, both the women are very much ready to battle it out to grab the winner’s trophy. Year to date, Konta has won a title, at Sydney, while Wozniacki has reached two finals, at Doha and Dubai, losing to Karolina Pliskova and Elina Svitolina in straight sets respectively.
