Dutch tennis superstar, Kiki Bertens has made into the second round of the 2019 WTA Eastbourne International. At this stage of the tournament, Kiki Bertens will play against Anna-Lena Friedsam from Germany. 

Kiki Bertens had a simple win in the previous round as she defeated her opponent in straight sets. During the victory, Bertens received serve exceptionally well. Bertens won 52% of his receiving points which allowed her to break her opponent’s serve on 5 occasions. The serving also impressive from Kiki Bertens as she only lost 1 service game in the entire match. 

Bertens has been in good form leading up to this tournament as she recently won the Madrid Masters and finished second at the Rosmalen Grass Court Championship. Bertens has only lost 1 game on grass this season so she will be confident in her ability to continue her winning form. 

Looking at her opponent, Anna-Lena Friedsam also won her previous match in straight sets as she defeated Anett Kontaveit. During the win, Friedsam won 90% of her service games and 3 return games. It was a comfortable victory for Anna-Lena Friedsam but she will be aware that this will be a much tougher match. 

It has not been a good start to the grass court season for Anna-Lena Friedsam as she has only won 3 matches since the French Open. With her form lacking, Friedsam may find it tough to compete with the number 3 seed. 

Anna-Lena Friedsam and Kiki Bertens have played each other twice in the past. Bertens has won on both occasions. The most recent match between these two players was earlier in the season at WTA Stuttgart where Kiki Bertens won in straight sets. 

Anna-Lena Friedsam had a good win in the previous match but the German player still seems to be in relatively poor form. Friedsam not really been winning and she will be greatly challenged. Kiki Bertens has become an elite player over the past few seasons and she will be high on confidence following her recent result. Bertens is the stronger player and I see her being too strong for Friedsam in this match. 

Pick:
Kiki Bertens
