Aegon Open, Nottingham, Final: Pliskova v Riske (14:00)

Pliskova leads their previous meetings 2-1. Their last match was in April 2013. Pliskova won on clay in straight sets. They have never played on grass.

Both players have a strong record on grass in the last 12 months. Pliskova is much stronger in tie breaks which could be relevent with both of them serving well..

Pliskova lost her opening set of the week but has won the next 8. Riske won the ITF title in Eastbourne last week. She has not dropped a set this week. Tiredness may be an issue for her.

I favour Pliskova to take this but she can struggle in finals. She has only lost 1 as favourite though which was in 2011.

Wait for 1.80 or better before backing her.
