Aliaksandra comes into the tie with a career Hardcourt record of 127-86 and is 10-8 on the surface this season while being 23-19 for the season across all surfaces. Simona will take the court with a career Hardcourt record of 242-108 and is 12-4 on the Hardcourts this season while having a season record of 16-7 across all surfaces.

Looking at these numbers, their recent form and past few performances, it seems that Simona Halep will be the one heading into the next round but Sasnovich will be confident after her latest wins and will make Simona work hard for her win.

Prediction: Simona Halep to win in 3-sets.
