MATCH POINTS

Kristyna Pliskova has made a strong start to 2020. She reached the semifinals of Shenzhen, taking out No.2 seed Aryna Sabalenka in the process.

Heather Watson is a previous champion here, lifting the trophy in 2015 when she beat Madison Brengle 6-3, 6-4 in the final.

Watson played Fiona Ferro in qualifying for Brisbane, when the British player won 6-2, 7-6(4).

Catherine Bellis’ win over Marie Bouzkova was her first main draw victory on the WTA Tour since Indian Wells 2018 following serious wrist and elbow injury.

denied Veronika Kudermetova the opportunity for revenge against a player who knocked her out of Brisbane qualifying last week.

Lauren Davis has a 2-1 career head-to-head record against Magda Linette, though they have not faced each other since 2015, when all their matches came in quick succession.

Linette won through the first round via two tiebreak sets against Svetlana Kuznetsova.

Having come through qualifying, Kateryna Kozlova will play her fourth match in Hobart, where she has yet to drop more than two games in any set.

Zhang Shuai appears here for the third year in a row. Her best result so far is the Round of 16 which she achieved in 2018 (losing to Aryna Sabalenka) and in 2014 (losing to Klara Koukalova).
