Kenin - Keys
Kenin’s superb season has continued in Cincinnati, whilst Keys has proved what a danger she can be.
Kenin, by comparison, is really only this season making her mark on the game. It would be fitting for Kenin’s excellent season to be augmented by an appearance in a WTA Premier event final for the first time. However, Keys is not just going to roll over and allow that to happen. Their previous match, which came in Rome earlier this year, went the distance, but Kenin managed to get on top of Keys’ second serve enough times on the clay to win.
This encounter being on hard court may well be serve dominated and could come down to whoever can take the higher percentage of their breakpoint opportunities. Kenin has little advantage in my opinion.
