The final of the 2019 WTA Fed Cup will begin with Ajla Tomljanovic (Australia) facing Kristina Mladenovic (France).
Kristina Mladenovic last played at the Kremlin Cup where she made the semifinals. Mladenovic was eventually defeated by Belinda Bencic but the French superstar had a very strong tournament. During the Kremlin Cup, Kristina Mladenovic defeated the likes of Kiki Bertens and Anastasija Sevastova. In general, it has been a strong few months for Kristina Mladenovic as she also made the semifinals of the Zhengzhou Open at the start of the Asian season. Kristina Mladenovic is the top seed for the French side and it will be important that she starts her tournament with a victory.
On the other side of the coin, Ajla Tomljanovic enters this tournament following a poor Kremlin Cup where she was eliminated during the opening round of the tournament. It has been a tough few weeks for Ajla Tomljanovic as she has only won 2 matches in her last 5 tournaments. Playing on home soil, Ajla Tomljanovic will be hoping to start Australia’s Fed Cup campaign with a victory but it is expected to be a tough task since the Australian player has not been in good form.
Ajla Tomljanovic and Kristina Mladenovic have played each other twice in the past. Ajla Tomljanovic has won on both occasions. The most recent match between these two players was in 2014 when Ajla Tomljanovic won in straight sets.
Taking everything into consideration, I am going to pick Kristina Mladenovic to win this match. Ajla Tomljanovic has not been at her best recently and she is expected to struggle against a good player in Mladenovic. Kristina Mladenovic enters this tournament following a strong Kremlin Cup and I see her being good enough to win this match and secure a victory for the French team.
