After a comparatively early exit from the French Open, Cibulkova took a wildcard to Den Bosch where she has enjoyed some success in the past. After a quick exit on her debut in 2009, she made the quarter-finals three times and the semi-finals once.
Her clay court season was clobbered with a wrist injury and with Eastbourne title and the Wimbledon quarter-finals to defend, a good start to her grass court season is imperative.
There is no doubt that Mladenovic is at the height of confidence at the moment. She reached the Stuttgart final and Madrid final (runner-up in both) and gave the French crowds real hope that they might see a champion before she ran out of steam in the quarter-final.
She reached the final in Den Bosch last year, and is coming in with some good form.
Third seed Bertens has perhaps more of a pedigree on clay – especially after her run to the semi-final last year at Roland Garros. She enjoyed another good clay run this year, but her grass court form has been patchy.
