This is typically caused by seals which have become soft and sticky due to contaminates like degreaser. It also happens over time, and SRAM Elixir brakes are especially known to have this issue. The Guide series hasn't been bad about this so far. The solution is to replace all the seals in the lever. SRAM has a special grease (Avid DOT Grease) for this ...

I think @itsthejash has some good tips but I'd also suggest taking the rotor off the hub and making sure there is no dirt or other material on part of the mounting surface of the hub, thus pushing it out in one spot. Maybe use some cleaner to ensure the surface of the hub and rotor are clean on the faces that meet during mounting. Also - when you engage ...
