Wales open their 2018 Cyprus Cup campaign against Finland today at Antonis Papadopoulos stadium in Larnaca at 11:00am.
Finland are currently second in their 2019 FIFA World Cup qualifying group after three games, with Linda Sallstrom leading their scoring chart with two qualifying goals.
Like Wales, they are also undefeated so far. New manager Anna Signeul recently returned to her native Scandinavia after impressively leading Scotland to UEFA EURO 2017.
“Finland are very much a changing team,” explained Ludlow. “I've got a lot of respect for Anna and what she has achieved in the game.
"Scotland did extremely well under her leadership. She's got some great players with Finland and you can see that she's making changes there already. They're going to be very structured and hard to beat, and they will give us a physical challenge as well.”
