THE PREDICTION

Both Shuai Zhang and Beatriz Haddad-Maia were forced to play their semi-finals earlier today after constant showers rained off Saturday’s action at the Birmingham Classic. World number 54 Shuai Zhang is through to her second final of the season, after winning a third WTA title at the Lyon Open back in February, via a comeback victory over Sorana Cirstea on Court 1 whilst Haddad-Maia overcame the second seed Simona Halep in three sets on Centre. 26-year-old Haddad-Maia is also through to her second tour final of the season after winning her first WTA title this time last week at the Nottingham Open on grass, her new-found favoured surface. The Brazilian has already triumphed this week after playing twice in one day after she finished off her round of 16 clash with Magdalena Frech on Friday before beating the third seed Camila Giorgi and a nine-match winning streak on grass suggests she is the woman to beat here.

Haddad-Maia was the winner of her only previous meeting with Shuai at the Miami Open back in 2018 and she can take that head-to-head to 2-0 here with a second title won in as many weeks.
