The match is a close call, as both players have been in tremendous form this tournament. Ons Jabeur came into the tournament on the back of a run in the finals at the Chicago Open. The match will be a close three set battle, however, Jabeur should emerge victorious. The Tunisian has been serving exceptionally at Indian Wells, and has been broken just thrice in the last three matches.

Match Prediction: Ons Jabeur to win in three sets
