Madrid F: Sharapova, queen of clay

Madrid final:

Simona Halep vs. Maria Sharapova

Maria Sharapova has been undefeated on clay so far, and will be looking to keep that record intact against Simona Halep. The Romanian is playing in her first Premier Mandatory final, so there will be nerves involved. However, seeing how much Simona has matured over the past year, I doubt she will be affected much. Sharapova needs to serve well and keep her foot on the accelerator. If she has a lapse in concentration, Halep will swoop in and run off a series of games. Maria is looking very good on clay this year, and I believe she will fight to the bitter end to keep her winning streak going.

Pick: Sharapova in 3 sets
