Brady is an aggressive player with an all-around game. She is a powerful server, with a first serve speed of 114 mph, allowing her to serve numerous aces every match. Alexandrova, on the other hand, has yet to reach her full potential. So far, she is not having a good season.

Our predictions: Jennifer Brady to win in three sets.
