Katie Boulter (GBR world No.126) vs Jodie Burrage (GBR, world No.131)
In what will be only the third ever WTA final between two British players – Boulter and Burrage are set to do battle in both of their first tour finals. Sunday’s final promises to be a masterclass in attacking tennis, with two players who boast some of the most lethal groundstrokes on grass.
In their most recent meeting, Boulter defeated Burrage to win the W60 Canberra title.
Boulter will be looking to make it a third consecutive victory over a fellow Brit at the Rothesay Open Nottingham, having defeated Harriet Dart and Heather Watson on her way to the final. The British No.1 boasts an impressive record on grass and before this year was already a two-time quarter-finalist in Nottingham. She’s been in good form recently too – having made back-to-back finals at W80 and W60 events in Japan, followed by a semi-final at the Lexus Surbiton Trophy.
Burrage has had a tough road to the final but has come out on top in the biggest moments. After a three-hour victory over Tereza Martincova in the first round, she’s gone on to beat world No.21 Magda Linette, Magda Frech and Alize Cornet.
Like Boulter, Burrage has had her best recent results on grass – including an upset over then world No.4 Paula Badosa in the Rothesay International Eastbourne and reaching the final at last year’s Lexus Ilkley Trophy.
Andy Murray (GBR, world No.44) vs Arthur Cazaux (FRA, world No.181)
Undefeated in nine matches to start his grass court season, Murray is hitting his form just at his favourite point in the season.
Rolling on from become the oldest grass court ATP Challenger champion at the Lexus Surbiton Trophy last week, the former world No.1 has claimed scalps over Joris De Loore, Hugo Grenier, ATP Next Gen star Dominic Stricker and third seed Nuno Borges in Nottingham – all without dropping a set.
Competing for consecutive grass court titles, the two-time Wimbledon champion will face 20-year-old French prodigy Cazaux. Despite his very limited grass court experience, Cazaux has been in fantastic form this week and made the final with a semi-final win over fifth seed Dominik Koepfer.
Cazaux has two Challenger titles to his name already in his brief career and is a former Australian Open junior finalist from 2020.
