Nerves are likely going to play a role in this match given the lack of experience, and Grabher will have the mental edge knowing she beat Bronzetti on clay a couple of years ago. However, Bronzetti is coming off back to back dominating performances and her serve has been high quality recently. This feels like it's the Italian's tournament to lose.
