Elina Svitolina will enter the match as an overwhelming favorite. The Ukrainian has been a consistent member of the top 10 for quite some time is also one of the contenders to win the title this year at Indian Wells. She has significantly improved her backhand which was once her weakness. Martincova too has been in good form and would want to trouble Svitolina with her lethal baseline strokes. Expect a tight match with Svitolina cruising into the third round.

Prediction: Svitolina to win in straight sets.
