Serena Williams's stunning 27-match winning streak stretching back to last year's WTA finals was snapped in resounding fashion by Petra Kvitova Friday as the Czech progressed to the Madrid Open final 6-2, 6-3 .Kvitova will face Russia's Svetlana Kuznetsova in Saturday's final after she also pulled off a big upset in beating defending champion Maria Sharapova 6-2, 6-4 .However, Williams had battled back from three match points down against Victoria Azarenka Wednesday and ensured a nervy end for Kvitova by getting one of the breaks back to close to 5-3 .Yet, there was to be no repeat of the 19-time Grand Slam champion's heroics earlier in the week as Kvitova broke again on her first match point to seal her first victory over Williams in six attempts.
