Leylah will come into the clash with a career Hardcourt record of 67-34 and is 19-9 on the surface this season while having a 25-16 record for the season across all surfaces. Rogers will take the court with a career Hardcourt record of 142-106 and is 19-11 on Hardcourts this season and has an overall surface record of 28-21 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 and level the head-to-head, but it won’t be an easy win as Rogers herself is in good touch and will surely make things difficult for the Canadian teenager.

Prediction: Leylah Fernandez to win in 3-sets.
