Zahlavova-Strycova vs Niculescu by Patyi
Barbora Strycova is very good grasscourt-player, she has good serve, slice and she has beautiful net play. She had problems with her attitude, but last year she calmed down and played good tennis. This year she started well but she has played with more errors since february. Last year she played final in Birmingham.
Monica Niculescu is not a typical grasscourt-player but she is a big fighter. She played final in Nottingham last week and won ITF Marseille on the 7th of June. She is in good form but she has played a lot of tennis recently. Under 13 days she has played 10 tight matches (7 decider set) and cause of raining she played Nottingham's final yesterday.
I think Barbora is better grasscourter, she is well rested and she have to defend her points in Birmingham. Niculescu won't give up a match but yesterday she was dead tired against Konjuh in decider, I think she will lost this battle.
