American 8th seed Alison Riske has been flawless all week. She is yet to drop a set and defeated Mona Barthel and Alize Cornet in the initial rounds. She then stormed past Wang Xinyu in the quarterfinal before beating 3rd seed Danielle Collins in the last 4. Before the tournament, Riske wasn’t in the best of form and struggled in the opening rounds of tournaments.

Romanian Jaqueline Cristian has had a good run in the last couple of tournaments she player. Earlier, she couldn’t make past the qualifiers at the US Open and then made it to the Round of 16 of the Tenerife Ladies Open as a qualifier. She then reached the quarterfinal of the Transylvania Open where she lost to Simona Halep. This week in Linz, she has dropped just one set in the main draw. She beat Veronika Kudermetova in the quarterfinal before she got a walkover from Simona Halep in the semifinal.

None of the players were expected to make it to the final before the tournament. They have been absolutely phenomenal all week and would fancy their chances to win the title. Riske will start as the favorite given her dominance in Linz and superior ranking. Expect an exciting match with Riske winning the title comfortably.

Prediction: Riske to win in straight sets.
