Jessica Pegula enters this match having won her previous outing in straight sets. It was a comfortable win for the American as she was able to control the match. During the win, Pegula won close to 50% of her receiving points which allowed her to break her opponent’s serve on 4 occasions. It has been a relatively comfortable tournament for Pegula as this will be the first time that she will be playing a seeded opponent. Jessica Pegula recently made the semifinals at the Miami Open so she will be confident in her ability to challenge for the title.
On the other side of the coin, Ons Jabeur enters this match following a straight sets win over Ekaterina Alexandrova in the semifinals. It was a hugely impressive performance by Jabeur as she controlled the match with her serving as she won all but 1 service games. It has been a strong tournament for Ons Jabeur as she has already defeated the likes of Belinda Bencic and Simona Halep. It has been a strong season for Ons Jabeur and that has seen her gradually climb up the WTA rankings. This tournament is a good chance for Ons Jabeur to win a major tournament as she looks in outstanding touch.

Free Tennis Pick:
Taking everything into consideration, I am going to pick Ons Jabeur to win this match. The Tunisian superstar has been in better touch and she looks to be a more complete player. Pegula is yet to play at elite player at tournament and I see that being a disadvantage. I see Ons Jabeur winning this match in 3 sets.
