It has been a tough year for Belinda Bencic as she got eliminated in the second round of the Australian Open. Her underwhelming performances continued as she struggled in Doha and also at the Indian Wells. So she will be looking to prove a point over in Miami by reaching the last four as she has had a relatively easier draw. 

The 25-year-old started her campaign against Marta Kostyuk and defeated her 6-3,6-1 without much hassle. She continued her form against Heather Watson where again she won 6-4, 6-1 to reach the last 16. There again she got the better of Aliaksandra Sasnovich 6-2, 6-3 to reach the quarterfinals of the Miami Open. Bencic is yet to drop a set and will be reasonably confident against Gavrilova. 

Daria Gavrilova has shown a lot of grit to reach the quarterfinals of the Miami Open. The Australian also had a slice of luck with Simona Halep pulling out of the event allowing her to march forward. Gavrilova began her campaign with wins against Greet Minnen 7-5, 6-3 followed by French star Harmony Tan 6-4, 6-2. 

The Australian dominated Katerina Sinakova as the Czech player looked well out of sorts and decided to hand her a walkover. Gavrilova was leading the game 6-0, 1-0 and would have probably bagged the game in no time had it continued. Her biggest fight till now was against Lucia Bronzetti where the match went to the third set but Gavrilova dug deep and came from behind to win against the Italian. She won 5-7, 6-4, 7-5 to reach the quarterfinals.

Belinda Bencic and Daria Gavrilova have faced each other a total of three times before this and surprisingly it is the Australian who has the edge over her opponent. Gavrilova has defeated Bencic twice and leads the Head-to-Head 2-1 with the Swiss having enjoyed only one win. However, they are tied 1-1 on hard court in major events.

Bencic looks like the favourite to win this game but Daria Gavrilova is more than capable of staging an upset. But the 25-year-old has enough experience at the top level to see out games like these but it will surely test her stamina and grit. 

Prediction: Bencic to win in three sets
