Muguruza is in red hot form and is one of the favorites to win this tournament. Her attacking game and consistency make her a formidable opponent. Xinyu is a tall player who has a lot of power and energy. But at only nineteen she lacks consistency and experience. 

Match Prediction: Garbine Muguruza will beat Wang Xinyu in straight sets.
