We’ve reached the decisive day with Madison Keys and Caroline Wozniacki fighting for the Volvo Car Open title this Sunday in Charleston.

<h2 style="text-align:center">Madison Keys (8) vs. Caroline Wozniacki (5)</h2><p style="text-align:center"><strong><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tennis/world/wta/charleston-usa/wozniacki-vs-keys-3769349/" target="_blank" title="Check Keys - Wozniacki Betting Odds">Sunday, April 7, Charleston</a></strong></p><p>Former world No.1 Caroline Wozniacki advanced to her first final of the season with a 6-3, 6-4 win over Petra Martic in the semi-finals on Saturday. Wozniacki hit 21 winners to just 13 unforced errors and lost just 15 points on serve in a dominant display. Even though clay is not Caroline’s favourite surface, the 28-year-old Dane loves to play in Charleston with an impressive 20-4 record on this event. Adding to this, Wozniacki won the title in 2011 and is hoping to replicate that success this Sunday at the Family Circle Tennis Center.</p><p>Wozniacki will next face No.8 seed Madison Keys, who needed just 67 minutes to get past Monica Puig with a 6-4, 6-0 victory and reach her second final in Charleston. Madison’s firepower proved too much to handle for Puig with 29 winners – including nine aces – to just 17 unforced errors. On the other hand, Keys broke serve five times and won 52.24% of the points on Puig’s serve. The Rock Island native will try to become the ninth American player to win the title in Charleston in her first WTA final since the US Open in 2017.</p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"en\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;It's her first final of the year! 👏&lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/hashtag/VolvoCarOpen?src=hash&amp;amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#VolvoCarOpen&lt;/a&gt; 2011 champ &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/CaroWozniacki?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;@CaroWozniacki&lt;/a&gt; wins the semifinal 6-3, 6-4 over Martic.&lt;br /&gt;--&amp;gt; &lt;a href=\"https://t.co/iacRajKpxb\"&gt;https://t.co/iacRajKpxb&lt;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"https://t.co/TxVkupllke\"&gt;pic.twitter.com/TxVkupllke&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;— WTA (@WTA) &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/WTA/status/1114600603358048256?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;6 de abril de 2019&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;\n&lt;script async src=\"https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;"}[/]</p><p>This will be the third official meeting between these two players with Keys still seeking to win a set against the Dane. Despite Caroline’s lead on the head-to-head, the bookmakers are expecting a close encounter with Wozniacki as the slight favourite <a href="http://affiliate.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=155&amp;a=6a145d2b-505f-491b-a70e-2f5f31742828" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Play at this A+ Rated Bookmaker!">at 4/5 (1.80) with Pinnacle</a> while <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=153&amp;a=8ec6399a-9df1-4c52-b272-39e6428836a6" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Join Betfair &amp; Start Playing Today!">Betfair offers 11/10 (2.10)</a> for Madison to lift the trophy. Keys is one of the most powerful ball-strikers on the WTA Tour but is always very inconsistent and this is a very difficult matchup for her. Wozniacki is an outstanding defender and her counter punching skills have always been a tough challenge for the American. With this in mind, our suggestion is to add Caroline’s moneyline to your <a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tips/" target="_blank" title="More Predictions &amp; Free Tips">betting tips</a> as the best value bet for this Sunday’s final in Charleston.</p>
