Defending champion Petra Kvitova eases into Birmingham final
Defending champion Petra Kvitova powered past Mihaela Buzarnescu to reach the final at the Birmingham classic.
The two-time Wimbledon champion is yet to drop a set this week having overcome the Romanian 6-3 6-2.
It was the Czech star’s tour-leading 36th win of the year, one more than world number one Simona Halep.
“Amazing statistics this week,” Czech third seed Kvitova said.
“I didn’t expect that from the beginning of the season. I didn’t really start well in Australia.
“So far this season is incredible, and I really can’t imagine a better season so far.”
Kvitova will face Magdalena Rybarikova, who has been her practice partner this week, in the final.
The 10th seed came back from a break down to defeat Barbora Strycova 7-6 6-4 in the other semi-final.
