Zarina Diyas vs. Samantha Stosur, Nottingham R1 Prediction

?? Nature Valley Open, Nottingham R1 Prediction
?? (7) Zarina Diyas vs. ?? (wc) Samantha Stosur

I’m going to side with Diyas here. Expect Diyas to be too solid for Stosur on a grass court. Diyas has a great ability to take the ball early and to rush opponents, the perfect formula to trouble Stosur. Diyas has aggressive, flat groundstrokes off both sides and will be a tricky customer for Stosur who needs time on her shots to be dangerous. Stosur has a really poor recent record on grass, I’d be surprised if the Aussie won this.

Prediction: Zarina Diyas to defeat Samantha Stosur in 3 sets
