Tennis | Ajla Tomljanović vs Kiki Bertens
Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Kiki Bertens will play against Ajla Tomljanović is the final of the 2018 WTA Korea Open.

Ajla Tomljanović enters this match having won her semifinal match in 3 sets. In that victory, Ajla Tomljanović received serve exceptionally well as she managed to break her opponents serve on 7 separate occasions. While that was impressive, Ajla Tomljanović struggled to hold her own serve as she lost 6 service games. This has been a problem that Ajla Tomljanović has struggled with all tournament as she has lost over 20 service games in this tournament. Ajla Tomljanović will need to improve her serve if she wishes to win this match since Kiki Bertens is excellent at exploiting such a weakness. Ajla Tomljanović has never won a WTA title before so she is expected to be nervous heading into this match.

On the other side of the court, Kiki Bertens looks very comfortable as she won her semifinal match in straight sets. In that win, Bertens only allowed her opponent to win 2 service games which lead to a very comfortable win for the Dutch player. Bertens has played very well all tournament having only lost one set in the entire event. Having recently won the Cincinnati Masters, Kiki Bertens will be feeling comfortable about the situation since she has the experience of winning a WTA final under her belt.

Kiki Bertens and Ajla Tomljanović have played once in the past. Kiki Bertens won that match.

While Ajla Tomljanović has done very well to make it this far in the tournament, I see her losing the final and finishing second. Kiki Bertens has been the best player in this tournament and she has not looked challenged in the entire tournament. With the experience of recently winning a WTA title under her belt, I see Kiki Bertens winning another title.
