Playing Styles & Prediction

We will be in Blister-watch as we saw how the blisters on Emma Raducanu’s feet started to hamper her performance at the Billie Jean King Cup, and Storm Sanders has already come through the qualifying rounds – and getting used to the slick Stuttgart clay is key.

Leftie Sanders plays a similar aggressive style to Raducanu, and her doubles prowess means she can run the Brit all around the court.

Prediction: Raducanu in three sets.
