Jelena Ostapenko v Clara Tauson Head to Head
The pair have never played each other before. This will be the first match between the 24-year old Latvian, and the Dane, who is six years younger.
Ostapenko’s Second Luxembourg Final in Three Years
Ostapenko is into her second final of the year, having won the Eastbourne International title on grass. And this is also her second time in the final in Luxembourg, having won the tournament two years ago.
The 24-year old Latvian has had a relatively untroubled passage through to this stage, having initially faced two qualifiers, Jule Niemeier of Germany, and then Clara Tauson of the Netherlands, although the Dutchwoman did take a set off her.
But she overcame the challenge of the world number 72, Alize Cornet of France in straight sets to set up her semi-final with Ludmila Samsonova of Russia.
The former French Open winner produced her best tennis of the week in the first set, saving three break points and then breaking Samsonova twice to seize the advantage.
And when she broke the world number 48 twice more at the start of the second set it looked like Ostapenko would run away with the match.
has been granted a wildcard in order to take her place in the main draw. However, from 5 -1 up she was pegged back to five-all, allowing Samsonova to break her twice.
And, when she went two-mini-breaks down in the tie-break it looked like she might be about to allow the Russian back into the match. However, she got one of the breaks back and then broke twice more, before earning herself a match point which she converted.
Tauson’s Second Career WTA Final
Still just 18, Tauson, who has been billed as the successor to Caroline Wozniacki, first burst on the scene when she won the Lyon Open in March.
And now she is into her second final of the year, after a run in Luxembourg that saw her best Astra Sharma, the number four seed Ekaterina Alexandrova and then Marie Bouzkova of the Czech Republic to set-up a semi-final clash with another Czech Marketa Vondrousova, the number five seed in Luxembourg.
The young Dane began well, breaking Vondrousova in the opening game of the match, and although the Czech then levelled, Tauson broke her again immediately and consolidated her lead to clinch the set.
However, it was the Czech woman who achieved the early break of serve in the second set, and then who was able to level the match with another break.
The pair swapped breaks at the start of the third set and it remained on serve until the ninth game, when Tauson forced two break points, converting the second of them. She clinched victory in the next game with her second match point.
Ostapenko v Tauson Prediction and Tip
This will be Ostapenko’s tenth career final as opposed to Tauson’s second and her greater experience should give the Latvian the edge, although as the US Open showed, there is nothing to stop an 18-year old winning the title.
