Aegon International, Eastbourne, Semi Final: Cibulkova v Puig

This will be their first meeting.

Ir has been an impressive week from Cibulkova. She has just beaten Radwanska in 3 sets. In the end she was better able to adapt to the windy conditions.  Bondarenko put her under a lot of pressure in her second match which probably helped to fine tune her game.

Puig hasn’t had a lot of success on grass in the past but seems to be finding her way around on this surface. She has come through the qualifying rounds and played well to beat Wozniacki in 3 sets in the main draw. She started a little shakily against Mladenovic with both players struggling on serve but she held it together better to take the set in a tiebreak.

I think this will be a tight match and we have  some value on Puig at the start but I favour Cibulkova to come through in 3 sets.

Lay Cibulkova if she breaks first.
