Jodie Burrage vs Katie Boulter – Match Predictions

Jodie Burrage to Win

With a chance to make history in the first all-Brit WTA final since 1977, both Boulter and Burrage will be eager to secure the title and force their way into the top 100. Boulter has had Burrage’s number with four wins against her but they have not been easy to achieve. Three of these four wins for Boulter have come in three-set affairs, revealing that the margin of victory was small. With Burrage overcoming a higher pedigree of rivals, including Magda Linette and Magdalena Frech, we are backing her to overcome the odds and clinch the title.

2-1 to Jodie Burrage

Two of Burrage’s wins in Nottingham have required a deciding set that finished in her favour. She has showcased resilience and will need it to overcome her old nemesis Boulter. On the other hand, the 26-year-old has arrived her with straight-sets victories to be proclaimed the bookmakers favourite. Boulter’s four wins over Burrage were close affairs despite the overall tally, with three of these seeing a 2-1 set score in her favour. We are backing Burrage to come out of Boulter’s shadow and make her top 100 debut, and should manage it. It will not be an easy task and we expect blows exchanged as she claims a 2-1 triumph.

Jodie Burrage vs Katie Boulter Preview

Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far in the Nottingham Open.

Jodie Burrage

Burrage impressed the local fans with her semifinal win against Alize Cornet. Despite facing pressure in both sets and coming close to losing the opener, the 24-year-old showcased her mental strength and clinched her 10th career top 100 win. Prior to this tournament, Burrage had a limited track record on the tour, with only four WTA main draw victories, all achieved in the 2022 season. Her journey to the final was unexpected, especially after a first-round loss in the W100 Surbiton event. However, Burrage has displayed her fighting spirit by defeating strong opponents like Linette and Frech to come this far.

Katie Boulter

The 26-year-old displayed her resilience in the all-British semifinal by defeating former world No. 38 and current No. 195, Heather Watson, in straight sets. Despite facing a 1-4 deficit in the second set, Boulter fought back and saved four crucial breakpoints to secure a hard-fought victory. She will fancy her chances as it has been a productive year for her, reaching three ITF finals this season and has a chance to claim the title in Nottingham. With seven pro titles to her name, including a W60 title in Canberra earlier this year, Boulter is determined to make her mark and prove her worth on the grass courts.

Duels between Burrage and Boulter have gone in one, in favour of the latter. The 26-year-old has defeated her at each time of asking since their first meeting back in 2017, however, three of these encounters have required a deciding set to separate them.
