Kirilenko advanced after No. 3 seed and defending champion Caroline Wozniacki retired prior to the match's second set due to aggravating a right knee injury she suffered in the quarterfinal. Kvitova had a slightly more difficult route but still managed a comfortable win over Italy's Sara Errani, 6-1, 6-3.
Kvitova entered the event as the No. 2 seed and had to survive a difficult second-round match against unseeded American Nicole Gibbs, winning 6-4, 1-6, 6-4.
Kirilenko's road to the final was relatively easier as she won after a walkout by Germany's Mona Barthel and later saw Wozniacki play just one set prior to suffering the injury.
Wozniacki, a favorite to successfully defend her title, appeared hampered by the injury throughout the match and could not continue after dropping the first set of the semifinal, 7-5.
