Ajla Tomljanovic is now 31-3 this season on hard court and is participating in his seventh final appearance of the season. Like Lucie Safarova, Ajla Tomljanovic continues to play extremely clean tennis and pounces the second his opponent makes a mistake, which is usually the deciding factor in his victories. It takes one slip in his opponents game for a match to turn around and for him to be declared the winner. Ajla Tomljanovic hopes to win his sixth title of the season and is 63-24 in his career in final appearances on hard court. Ajla Tomljanovic has won 10 of his last 12 matches on hard court.
These two have played 37 times and Lucie Safarova has won 23 of those meetings. The most recent match was in this years Miami Masters, a match Ajla Tomljanovic won in straight sets. Ajla Tomljanovic has won the last four matches against Lucie Safarova with his last loss coming in the 2014 Australian Open.
With the way these guys are playing, you could make a strong argument for either side. Lucie Safarova had a much easier semifinal match and has won 16 straight on hard court, while Ajla Tomljanovic has the mental advantage in this head to head with four straight victories. I was originally leaning towards Lucie Safarova in this match due to less wear and tear, but Ajla Tomljanovic sees Lucie Safarova’s serve very well and hasn’t been broken once in their last two meetings. Ajla Tomljanovic has been Lucie Safarova’s kryptonite as of late.
Head to head numbers matter in a match like this, which is why I’m giving Ajla Tomljanovic the edge here.
