The veteran has had an impressive year so far, reaching the Quarter Finals of the Australian Open, the Semi Finals of Paris and now the finals of Washington. All very impressive at the age of 37. Kanepi has had a good run so far this week, beating Minnen, Zhu, Kalinskaya and Saville. Though needed three sets against both Zhu and Kalinskaya, and her opponent in the final will be much tougher than them.

Samsonova has had a poor year, with her win loss ratio being 14-14 and 10-7 on hards. But after nearly a 2 month break from match play, she’s looked superb this week. Beating Mertens in straight sets in the first round, then Tomjlanovic, Raducanu and X. Wang.
When Samsonova is on form, she’s so difficult to beat. We saw this yesterday where she smashed Wang 6-1 6-1, where she lost just seven points on serve in the match, hitting 17 winners to just 5 unforced errors. She’s playing fascinating tennis all week, and if her serve is popping, she’ll be very comfortable in securing her second WTA title.
The pair have faced each other once in Wimbledon, where Samsonova won in straight sets.
Kaia Kanepi vs. Ludmilla Samsonova Prediction
I see Samsonova as the favourite here rather than a pick’em. She’s faced much tougher opponents and has brushed them aside most of the time, while Kanepi struggled against Zhu and Kalinskaya. Though we do see moments off low tennis IQ from the Russian, with the form she’s in this week I think she should beat Samsonova with relative ease.
