THE PREDICTION

Both world number 35 Daria Kasatkina and number 24 Ons Jabeur coped wonderfully well with playing two matches in quick succession on Saturday after rain washed-out play at the Birmingham Classic on Friday. Kasatkina played an extra set in a three-set quarter-final victory over in-form Tereza Martincova but the Russian was able to take out a resurgent Coco Vandeweghe comfortably later that day whilst Jabeur played the villain in beating home favourite Heather Watson just as comprehensively. 24-year-old Kasatkina was the winner in both previous meetings with 26-year-old Jabeur, including in the final of the 2018 Kremlin Cup, but Jabeur has a great game for grass and this will be their first meeting on this surface. Take Kasatkina to win at least a set here in a match that could go either way.
