Talking about the form coming into the tournament, Su-Wei has looked patchy. The 35-year old did not even manage to make it to the main draw of the Italian Open, which is a shame considering she sets very high standards for herself.

On the other hand, Kasatkina too struggled in Rome. The 24-year old Russian bowed down in the first round itself in straight sets to American Jessica Pegula 5-7, 3-6.
