    First WTA title loading. In my opinion, Kontaveit is already one of the best players in the world, easily top 10, and showing consistency this year. The ranking doesn't equal her playing quality at the moment. Some players can play low tier tournaments and win a bunch of them while she chooses to qualify into the big ones and go deep into most draws. Her match against Muguruza at the French Open sticks huge in my mind. If Ostapenko can win a grand slam, Kontaveit can win also.

    Natalia has a nice game, moves ok, maybe could get better, her mentality is reasonably good also, competes well, she has clearly stated that this is her surface. She appears more emotional and more prone to ups and downs compared to Anett.

    Anett has a lot more experience week to week at a higher level, I can see Anett being a little too solid and moving Natalia around a fair bit and hitting back with more power also.

    Tsurenko played well, Kiki played like she wanted the weekend off.
    Kontaveit is a super talent, a top 10 player right now the way she plays, hope to see her through.

    The last rally to hold for 5-4 seems like the first time Halep has found her timing in the rallies. Been getting pushed back a lot but if she can go toe to toe a little more like that, she will get on top regardless of Ostapenko's errors.

    I feel it is important to factor in just how dangerous and well Pliskova played in the semi final. Majority of the unforced errors came in the first set and yet because of her huge serve and rifled groundstrokes she was still able to keep it to one break. She was near flawless in the second set and could easily at that stage beaten Halep. In the end, consistency on clay over 2 plus hours was to be the issue for her.

    What I want to say is she has the biggest serve in the game and ground strokes that get hit with massive power and Halep was able to withstand that storm. It was a major mental battle of resilience and she passed the test.

    Ostapenko has awesome power on her ground strokes but her serve isn't Pliskova's and won't get her anywhere near the free points and control on the rallies that Pliskova's allowed.

    The other things that work against Ostapenko is her inconsistencies in matches and lack of experience at the very top level.

    I don't mean to disregard her, she has enormous self belief and continuously backs her powerful strokes deep in sets. I have seen her beat Wozniacki twice this year, even saving match points and just unloaded on her strokes when the pressure is on. This X Factor will allow her to have a brilliant career.

    However, what I see is Halep getting a ton of balls back with depth and angle. Halep isn't a pusher, she is a lot like Djokovic and redirects pace and finds angles and makes you compete relentlessly.

    She is playing without any stress and a calm focus.

    I can't seem to visualise Ostapenko outhitting Halep off the court especially without the big serve to get the free points that Pliskova had.

    Just like my gut tells me its Rafa's time, it is also time for Halep to win. She deserves it.

    Straight sets for me.

    Gut Feel, It is Rafa's year. Thiem no doubt has 2-3 French Open's waiting for him at least but just don't feel like it is going to happen this year. It could even be 5 sets, but just not feeling the upset today nor am I feeling Stan or Murray beating Rafa.

    Logical choice is Bacsinszky based on experience and court craft. However, beating Wozniacki isn't easy on any surface. She may not have the variety Timea does on this surface but Ostapenko surprised with her composure and killer instinct finishing Caroline.
    She has ridiculous power of both wings, but can fluctuate mentally at times.

    It is moments like these over the course of the years, where young teenagers come through and surprise most people who didn't really expect it to happen. It has happened before and can happen again. So who knows.

    Overall, 60: 40 in Timea's favour.
    I will take a punt it goes three sets, but I can't go either way with confidence.
