WUHAN, China (AP) — Petra Kvitova and Eugenie Bouchard will stage a rematch of their one-sided Wimbledon final when they meet for the inaugural Wuhan Open tennis title tomorrow.

Kvitova dominated Bouchard 6-3, 6-0 in 55 minutes to win her second Wimbledon trophy in July, in what was the most lopsided Wimbledon women’s final in 22 years.

They advanced with dominating performances in the Wuhan semi-finals today. Kvitova saved five of six break points to beat Elina Svitolina of Ukraine 6-3, 7-5, while Bouchard overpowered Caroline Wozniacki with her heavy groundstrokes in a 6-2, 6-3 victory.

Kvitova will be aiming for her third title of the year – and more importantly, a spot in the season-ending WTA Championships in Singapore.

Bouchard will be going for just her second career title.
