Jabeur comes into this tournament after reaching the semifinals of the recently concluded tournament in Indian Wells. 2021 has been a dream year for the Tunisian, across surfaces. She is currently ranked No.8 in the world and has won almost 50 matches on the tour thus far. Although Jabeur didn’t make it past the third round at the US Open, she did make the finals of Chicago and the quarterfinals of Montreal. For the year, the 27-year-old has already beaten several marquee names and has won 25 matches till now on the hard courts. Jabeur is the No.5 seed in Moscow and is one of the prime contenders to win the title.

On the other hand, Alexandrova comes into this tournament after exiting prematurely in Ostrava last month. It hasn’t been a very productive time for the Russian on the tour this year. She has played most of the tournaments as a qualifier and barring one semifinal appearance earlier in the year in Melbourne, ahead of the Australian Open, the 26-year-old hasn’t tasted any success. While Alexandrova is capable of creating an upset at infrequent intervals, she is likely to struggle this week in Moscow.

Although Jabeur has lost many times to Alexandrova in the past, the Tunisian is a far more accomplished and complete player these days. Her consistency, coupled with variety is likely to gun down the Russian in this contest.

Match Prediction: Ons Jabeur to win in straight sets.
