The world No.4 has enjoyed a stellar start to the season, winning the biggest title of her career at the Mutua Madrid Open. Bertens also reached her first WTA Tour final on grass at the Libema Open in s-Hertogenbosch and won 87.50% of the matches played on this surface in 2019. Nevertheless, the 27-year-old has struggled to find her rhythm on serve this week with an average of 0.61 double faults per game in Eastbourne.</p><p>Bertens will next face former world No.1 Karolina Pliskova in the semi-finals of the Nature Valley International. The 2017 champion has yet to drop a set in Eastbourne and needed just 54 minutes to beat Ekaterina Alexandrova 6-2, 6-0 in the quarter-finals on Thursday. Known as one of the best servers on the WTA Tour, Pliskova enjoys the fast court conditions on grass. Pliskova won 14 of her last 16 matches on this event and has yet to drop serve in Eastbourne since her first round win over Margarita Gasparyan.</p><p>These two players will face each other for the sixth time in their careers. Bertens leads 3-2 in their head-to-head but the bookmakers are well aware of Karolina’s impressive performances on this event with the Czech as the favourite to win this match at 63/100 (1.63) with <a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=155&a=6a145d2b-505f-491b-a70e-2f5f31742828&f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Play at this A+ Rated Bookmaker!">Pinnacle</a>.
