Despite Kiki’s impressive results on this surface in recent weeks, Pliskova had too much firepower for the Dutch. Known as one of the most powerful players on the WTA Tour, Pliskova ended the match with 21 winners to just seven unforced errors. Adding to this, the 2017 champion won 90.91% of her first-serve points and did not face a single break point to reach the final in Eastbourne for the third time in her career.</p><p>Pliskova will next take on reigning Wimbledon champion Angelique Kerber, who benefited from Ons Jabeur’s withdrawal due to a right ankle injury to reach her second final of the season. The three-time Grand Slam champion is an outstanding grass-court player and has yet to drop a set all week. Nevertheless, Kerber hasn’t won a title since Wimbledon last year and only won four of her last 11 official matches against Top 10 players.</p><p>These two players will face each other for the 11th time in their careers. Kerber leads 7-3 in their head-to-head but Karolina emerged victorious in their most recent encounter at the Fed Cup in 2018.</p><p>Looking now at the odds for this contest, the bookmakers are expecting a close contest with Pliskova as the slight favourite at 73/100 (1.73) with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=a710bfac-73c1-4a57-b441-2caf1b9f397b&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Join William Hill &amp; Start Playing Today!">William Hill</a> while <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Top Rated Bookmaker!">Bet365</a> offers 6/5 (2.20) for Angelique to lift the trophy. Kerber has always been a tough matchup for the Czech but it’s hard to go against Pliskova after her brilliant performances in the previous rounds. With this in mind, our recommendation is for you to take advantage of the value on Karolina’s <a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tennis/" target="_blank" title="Live Tennis Odds Board">tennis betting odds</a> as the best approach for this final.</p></div>
