This final is entirely out of the blue. :spit:
Not sure whom to give the edge here. I lean towards Johanna, as she will face less pressure and probably took more confidence from her latest matches. :)

I'm hoping for a Pliskova win. I think her snatching that #2 seed for RG will leave a bunch of people here satisfyingly in ruins.

Good matchup this for JoKo. She should take this.
5-1 H2H for Pliskova (3-1 at tour level) with Konta's only win (despite all those three setters between them) coming through a third set tiebreak when she reached the final in Beijing in 2016 (so near peak Konta) :unsure:

I'm not saying Konta can't take this but she clearly doesn't hold the mental edge over Pliskova and has by far the worst clay resume out of the two of them. She's the one that would need to overcome more demons to take the title.

This is the final though and in a final this is a good match up for Konta. She won't lose now.
I wish this were true but Jo has lost her last 3 finals... :tears: Pliskova used to be bad at finals but she's now like 50%. Also, she seems to be on a pattern of win, lose, win, lose... She lost her last final..soo.. :sobbing:

Pierre made a convincing case though as to why this is a good match up for Jo in the final... But it looks to me like Pliskova has adapted well to the conditions this week, she's moving quite well and using variety, such as dropshots and approaching the net.. I predict Pliskova will win in three sets...but I am hoping Klayta arrives and dominates in two sets, course.

Jo will expose Pliskova's movement on clay court... first meeting on clay since 2011... gonna be interesting coz Pliskova's serve is not as quick compare to grass and hard court.
