Kvitova leads their previous matches 5-4. Their last meeting was this month on a hard court and she won in 3 sets. Makarova won their other 2 matches this year on grass and hard court.
Makarova has had a couple of decent straight sets wins so far. She beat Sevastova and Errani.
Kvitova lost her opening set of the week to Chirico. She has looked very focused since. Bouchard broke her early and took a 3-1 lead before Kvitova reeled off 5 straight games in the last round.
This is Kvitova’s tournament but this could be a tough match for her. A little value on Makarova at the start but I favour Kvitova to win.
Wait for 1.80 on Kvitova
