Aug. 14 • Kim advances to the final of the Western and Southern Financial Group Open in Cincinnati. Ana Ivanovic, her opponent in the semis, was forced to retire after just 3 games, due to a left foot injury. Although it did surely not happen the way she wanted it, Kim reaches her 3rd final of the year and will face Maria Sharapova who defeated her compatriot Palyuchenkova in straight sets in semis! Both players have already won 2 titles this year and it will be their 8th meeting (Kim leads 4-3). The final will take place at 3PM, local time!
