Danielle Collins makes her way to her 5th semi-final of the season as she defeats Alison Van Uytvanck 7-5, 6-3 to reach the last-4 of the tournament without having dropped a set as she earlier defeated Greet Minnen 6-1, 6-2. Being the 3rd seed, she had a bye in the first round. With 2 titles already to her name, Collins will look to make it 3 for the season and end the season on a high.

Alison Riske moves into her 2nd semi-final of the season as she defeats Xinyu Wang 6-3, 7-5 and similar to her compatriot Collins, she is yet to drop a set in the 3 matches she has played so far this week in Austria. Alison beat Mona Barthel 6-3, 6-1 in the first round and then defeated Alize Cornet 6-4, 6-4 in the round of 16 clash.

This will be the first-ever meeting between the duo who are yet to meet in the main-draw of a WTA Tour match, hence the head-to-head stands at 0-0. They have however faced off once, in the qualifying round of the 2018 Madrid Open with Collins winning in 3-sets.

Collins will come into the tie with a career indoor hardcourt record of 8-2 and is 5-0 on the surface this season while having a season record of 40-14 across all surfaces. Alison will take the court with a career indoor hardcourt record of 57-25 and is 5-2 on the surface this season and has a 14-16 record for the season across all surfaces.

Looking at these numbers, their recent form and performances in the past few weeks, Danielle Collins seems to be the one heading into the finals but it won’t be a cakewalk as Riske herself has been in good form this week.

Match Prediction: Danielle Collins to win in 3-sets.
