These are two thoroughly deserving title winners in Shelby Rogers and Daria Kasatkina but unfortunately only one can lift the Silicon Valley Classic trophy. 29-year-old Shelby Rogers, who booked her first final in six years with a straight-sets victory over Veronika Kudermetova on Saturday. The American missed almost the entire 2018 season after undergoing knee surgery that could have ended her career but she enjoyed the best season of her career last year and she has played fiercely and freely this week in San Jose, blasting past top ten players of past, present and future in Bianca Andreescu, Maria Sakkari and Amanda Anisimova. 25-year-old Daria Kasatkina has also enjoyed a stellar run to the final with huge results over top-tenners in Paula Badosa and Aryna Sabalenka as well as the recent Wimbledon champion Elena Rybakina.
The Russian can become a top ten player for the first time herself with a win here, which would be the fifth WTA title of her career and an extra special one after bravely coming out last month. Similarly, Rogers can break the top 30 for a first time and more importantly win a first-ever trophy, breaking her duck as one of the most talented of this generation without one. This is a tough call, with Rogers taking their first meeting at the Miami Open in three sets back in 2017 but Kasatkina levelling things in straight sets back in May at Roland-Garros. The Russian is the more predictable of the two to bring her best but Rogers has been electric this week. With, likely, the whole crowd behind the American here, back Rogers to win at least a set and leave the winner up to chance.
