Sara Errani vs Hsieh Su-wei : Prediction
Both the players are excellent doubles players and have very similar styles. But Errani has a good track record against Hsieh and she will look to extend that good run. As both the players are in their mid thirties, endurance can be an issue. So the player who takes the early lead, might take the match as well.
