Aegon Classic, Birmingham, Final: Strycova v Keys

Keys leads the head to heads 2-1. Their last match was in May this year. Keys won in 3 sets on clay. She also won the previous week on clay. They have never met on grass.

Strycova started her semi final by losing the first 5 games to Vandeweghe. The American wasn’t mentally tough enough to finish the job and the strain showed when she broke down in tears in the third set after breaking Strycova back. Strycova controlled the rest of the match.

Keys has more fire power but Strycova is a little more consistent. The value is on Strycova but if Keys serves well and keeps the unforced errors count low she should take this.

It should be a tight match. Back Keys if she is broken first. Three sets won’t be a surprise to me..
