Barbora Krejcikova is the favorite to win the first round encounter by virtue of her higher ranking. However, Daria Kasatkina has been involved in a lot of action off late, and even made it to the finals of the Stanford Open. Hence, the Russian should be able to take the game to the higher ranked Czech. Kasatkina should prevail in a three set affair.

Match Prediction: Daria Kasatkina should win in three sets
