Anastasia comes into the tie with a career Hardcourt record of 260-171 and is 12-10 on the surface this season while being 26-17 across all surfaces this season. Leylah will take the court with a career Hardcourt record of 66-34 and is 18-9 on the surface for the season and has a 24-16 record across all surfaces this season.

Looking at these numbers, their recent form and past few performances, it seems that Leylah Fernandez will be the one heading into the next round but Anastasia will not be a pushover for the Canadian teenager and make her dig deep for the win.

Prediction: Leylah Fernandez to win in 3-sets.
