WTA Topshelf Open, 11:00 – Giorgi v Bencic
Neither player has won a WTA title. They have played just once which was last season on a clay court. Bencic won in 2 sets.
Giorgi has problems on her serve this week but in the semi final she served really well with just 4 double faults. Her fast style of play unsettled Bertens and the local player made more errors than she had during the rest of the week. I think it is more likely that when faced with a strong opponent, Giorgi’s serve problems will return.
Bencic has better stats on grass over the last 12 months. She has not had the best season so far but enjoys playing on this surface. I give her the edge today as I feel she will hold her game together better on the big occasion.
Part stake on Bencic at the start and I will add the rest if she gets broken.
