Petra Kvitova started the 2022 season slow as she struggled with her form in the early tournament of the year. Following a poor early hardcourt and clay season, Kvitova made somewhat of a comeback in the grass-court season and won her first title of the year in Eastbourne. The 32-year-old has a season record of 17 wins and 15 losses as of now. She will be looking forward to winning her 30th career title at the WTA Cincinnati 2022 Final.
Caroline Garcia has had a decent year in 2022. The French tennis star won 2 titles this year winning the Bad Homburg Open and the Poland Open in a span of two months. However, the highlight for Garcia this year was winning the 2022 French Open doubles title with Kristina Mladenovic. The world no. 32 will be aiming to win her 3rd title of the year as she steps foot in the Lindner Family Tennis Center this Sunday.

Kvitova vs Garcia Prediction:
Kvitova had a rough start to the tournament as she had to come back from down a match point. However, in the late rounds, the Czech has had a smooth run. She outplayed her opponents on the way to reaching the grand final. Although the 32-year-old did drop two sets following her first-round scare, she was never in real trouble in any of the matches.
Garcia may not have vast experience in the biggest stages like her opponent, but she has been on a tear recently. This tournament is no exception with the French grinding out victory in spectacular fashion in every single game. The 28-year-old is more than capable of defeating her two-time grand slam champion opponent on Sunday.
Prediction: Garcia def. Kvitova 7-6, 4-6, 6-4
