Garbine Muguruza has been one of the standout players on the tour this year. She last played at the Dubai Open, where she captured the title, and also ended as the runner-up at the Qatar Open 2021. She received a bye in the first round of the Miami Open. In the second round, she defeated Wang Xinyu in straight sets, dropping just five games. She had to toil hard in the third round as she had to come back from a set down, defeating Anna Kalinskaya in three sets to progress further in Miami.

Bianca Andreescu also received a bye in the first round. In the second round, she defeated Tereza Martincova in straight sets. She played out a thriller against Amanda Anisimova in the third round, as she defeated her in three sets. The Canadian is coming back after a long time on the sidelines due to injury but is slowly getting back to her best.

Bianca Andreescu is one of the most highly rated youngsters on tour. The US Open 2019 champion returned to action only at the Australian Open 2021 after missing in action for almost 15 months. On the other hand, Garbine Muguruza is playing her best tennis at the moment, having already lifted the title in Dubai. The match is expected to be a three set thriller, with the Spaniard just edging out her opponent. However, despite the loss, Andreescu will still be motivated with how things have gone about this week.
