We have reached the final of the WTA Stanford Classic tournament in San Jose. This has been a great competition with all the players producing some great tennis. The final will be between Greek player Maria Sakkari and Mihaela Buzărnescu from Romania. Both players have been very good all tournament and it will be interesting to see which player wins.

Mihaela Buzărnescu has had a really good tournament and showed her class in the semifinals as she beat Elise Mertens. The semifinal clash was exceptional as it showed that Mihaela Buzărnescu can beat top players. This is going to be another tough match for the Romanian and she is going to have to deal with the added pressure of it being a final. Mihaela Buzărnescu has never won a WTA singles title with this being the third time she has made it to the final. She will hope that she can use the experience from the losses to get a win this time around.

As far as Maria Sakkari is concerned, she will be very excited by this opportunity. This is the first time that the Greek player has made it to the final and she will hope that she can win on her first chance. It has been a really good tournament for Maria Sakkari as she has only lost one set all tournament. This deep run has included wins over players such as Venus Williams and she will look to use the wins as confidence in this event.

While both players have been playing well, I am going to pick Maria Sakkari to win. The Greek player has been better in this tournament and I think she will be good enough to get one more win. We are getting a good price to wager on Maria Sakkari winning so that is the bet which I am going to suggest for this contest.
