Sorana Cirstea hasn’t had a very good year. She began the season by losing her second match at the Gippsland Trophy. She then failed to win a single round in Adelaide. She did, however, surprise everyone by reaching the fourth round of the Australian Open, overcoming Petra Kvitova and Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in the way. She was then defeated by Iga Swiatek. She’s coming into the tie after a win against Stefanie Vogele in the previous round.

Meanwhile, Anna Bondar too has had a lukewarm start to the new season. She was dumped out of the Australian Open in the first round by Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova. She was poor in both the subsequent Qatar Open, Dubai Tennis Championship and St Petersburg Open. She’s coming into the match after a walkover against Katie Boulter in the previous round.

Sorana Cirstea would be the favorite in the match being the 2nd seed at the tournament. The Romanian would look to shrug off her disappointing start to the current season and go deep into the tournament. Meanwhile, Anna Bondar would be fiercely competitive in this match, knowing that she has the capability to compete against the opponent.

Match Prediction- Cirstea to win in straight sets.
