Stefanie Voegele vs Saisai Zheng: Match Prediction

Saisai Zheng is the clear favorite to win the second round encounter and progress into the third round. The top seed was impressive in her first round match at Bogota Open. Zheng also had a good run at the Monterrey Open last month, where she reached the quarterfinals. On the other hand, Voegele is struggling with form, facing a couple of early round exits. It should be a straight sets victory for the Chinese in the second round.
