Congratulations to Christina for finally reaching her first tour final. It was a jittery semi-final affair with Garcia but she did it in the end. Against Cibulkova, she'll definitely be the underdog. Dominika has had plenty of final experience and is riding on a new wave of confidence. Still, it's still a good week for the American whose career has been interrupted by unfortunate injuries.
Pick: Cibulkova in 2 sets
In her 15th final, Zakopalova is the first player in 2014 to reach 3 finals. This is her second consecutive final after last week's Rio. However, she won't be the favorite as Garbine Muguruza just beat her two months ago in the Hobart finals. It's a pity as the Czech's game is free flowing when it's on. But she just doesn't show up in finals. I do not expect anything different to happen here.
Pick: Muguruza in 2 sets
