Kerber will be gutted to have not made a significant impact at the 2024 French Open. She couldn't capitalize on her positive result in Rome, but will fancy her chances of doing well in Berlin. The veteran is known for her formidable all-around game and high-tactical acumen on court.

Noskova, meanwhile, has struggled to register a strong result since her breakthrough run in Melbourne. She's one of the most promising youngsters on tour and also rated highly by the critics. The Czech likes to play an aggressive brand of tennis and moves effortlessly on court.

Ultimately, the player who adapts to the conditions quickly and makes a quick start in Berlin will have the upper hand in this bout. Considering their record on grass and experience at the highest level, Kerber will be the favorite to come out on top. The German should be able to exploit Noskova's weaknesses and advance to the second round.

Pick: wKerber to win in straight sets.
