Keys too good for Wozniacki in Charleston final

Keys too good for Wozniacki in Charleston final

The final of the 2019 Volvo Car Open in Charleston will have the Danish No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki face the resurgent American Madison Keys. Keys steadied herself and won four straight points to set up the tiebreaker. Isaac finished 10th in the competition, but did get the experience of a lifetime and got to meet former Masters Champion Adam Scott.

The eighth seed started the match strongly, holding her first two service games easily and then, after having two break points in Puig's opening service game, broke for a 3-1 lead after Puig fired a forehand wide on her second break point of that game.

Her win also completed a superb week in SC, where she defeated three Grand Slam champions - Jelena Ostapenko, Stephens and Wozniacki - to take the title.

Meanwhile, Victoria Azarenka used her superior serving and punishing groundstrokes to upset top seed Angelique Kerber 6-4 4-6 6-1 and advance to Sunday's final of the Monterrey Open against Garbine Muguruza.

"I just knew the games I was losing in the first set I was just being too tentative and not really trusting my shot", said the 24-year-old American.

Many vaccine opponents believe medically baseless claims that inoculations can cause autism and other negative health effects. That's the point of vaccines - safe ways of making people immune to infections with limited side effects.

Break-point chances came for Wozniacki at 3-2 and 4-3, but Keys held firm to take the opener into a breaker. "I think I did well today".

Keys told "It's definitely been a really great week for me, especially after having some really tough losses the last couple of weeks".

The rain delay helped Keys.

For Keys, this is the second time that she has reached the final in Charleston while for Wozniacki, this is her third such instance.

"I also felt I kept a lot of pressure on her, making a lot of returns and keeping rallies going and not going for things too early", said the world number 18, who won 76 percent of points on her first serve, and fired six aces.
