Kerber to take on Copenhagen task

Last year, it was Lucie Safarova. The year before that, it was Klara Zakopalova. The e-Boks Open, known among fans as the Wozniacki Open, is in its third year, and Caroline Wozniacki is about to go for her third title at the tournament. In this year's final, Wozniacki's opponent will be Angelique Kerber, Germany's second-highest ranking player.

2nd seed Kerber defeated 3rd seed Jelena Jankovic 6-2, 6-1 in today's semifinals, and top seed Wozniacki defeated Petra Martic.

Wozniacki defeated Kerber last year in the second round.

In doubles, Sofia Arvidsson and Kaia Kanepi will play Kimiko Date-Krumm and Runi Fujiwara for the championship.

In Spain, 3rd seed Dominika Cibulkova will face 7th seed Sara Errani to determine the champion of the Barcelona Ladies Open. Errani and her partner, Roberta Vinci--the top doubles seeds--will play Flavia Pennetta and Francesca Schiavone for the doubles championship. This means that what we consider to be the Italian Fed Cup team--one of the finest Fed Cup teams of recent years--will split itself in two to play in the doubles final. Errani and Vinci are considered the doubles experts, though Pennetta is no stranger to doubles strategy.
