THE PREDICTION

World number 61 Kristian Mladenovic has fought through two tough three-set battles at the Nottingham Open but the seventh seed has looked at home on the grass here. She faces Shuai Zhang for a sixth time in their careers after the world number 46 took out in-form Zarina Diyas in straight sets on Thursday and this should be an entertaining quarter-final. 28-year-old Mladenovic leads a healthy 4-1 head-to-head record with Zhang and has won both previous grass meetings between the two which gives her the big advantage here but Zhang is an enigmatic player who can find an extra gear from nowhere at times. Take Mladenovic to win this outright with 32-year-old Zhang more than capable of forcing a decider.
