MATCH POINTS

Caroline Wozniacki has a 2-0 head-to-head lead over Madison Keys. Both of Wozniacki's wins came on hardcourt in straight sets: at the 2016 US Open, and the 2017 BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells. Both players are into their first final of the 2019 season.

The first 14 events of the 2019 season have all been won by different players - the first time this has ever happened. The record will continue to be extended to 16 on Sunday, as both the Volvo Car Open as well as the Abierto GNP Seguros in Monterrey will be claimed by players who have yet to win a title this season.

Wozniacki has won the most matches in Charleston out of everyone who was in the main draw this year. She claimed her 19th match win at the Volvo Car Open with her semifinal victory over Petra Martic (19-4 career win-loss record at the event).

No.5 seed Wozniacki claimed the Charleston title in 2011, defeating Elena Vesnina in the final. The Dane was also the runner-up to Sabine Lisicki in 2009. Wozniacki has reached at least the quarterfinals in all six of her appearances at the Volvo Car Open.

Keys reached the Charleston final in 2015, losing to Angelique Kerber. The American also reached the semifinals at the tournament last year before losing to eventual champion Kiki Bertens in a final-set tiebreak. Keys is 15-6 at Charleston over her career.

No.8 seed Keys claimed her first win in four professional meetings against her good friend, top-seeded Sloane Stephens, in the quarterfinals on Friday.

World No.13 Wozniacki is projected to rise to No.12 in the rankings with her finalist showing, and could reach No.11 if she claims the title. The former World No.1 and 2018 Australian Open champion seeks her 31st WTA singles title of her career.

World No.18 Keys is projected to go to No.16 by making the final and No.14 by capturing the title. Keys, who has a career-high ranking of World No.7 and reached the final of the 2017 US Open, is aiming for a fourth career WTA singles title.

All four doubles finalists are into their first Volvo Car Open championship match. Anna-Lena Groenefeld has won 16 WTA doubles titles in her career, and Alicia Rosolska has won eight. Irina Khromacheva has one WTA doubles title to her name, while Veronika Kudermetova seeks her first.
