It’s the first official event — for men or women — since March.
Both Kontaveit and Ferro are aiming for their second WTA titles.
Kontaveit’s only previous success came on grass in Rosmalen, Netherlands, in June 2017, while Ferro raised the trophy in Lausanne, Switzerland, last year.
“It’s always difficult to tell how it’s going to be on court. I can feel well practiced, but it might not turn out like that right away,” Kontaveit said. “I feel like I’m really fit and I feel like I’m moving well. I feel confident with my groundstrokes. I’m serving well. I’m pleased it’s paid off.”
