Patricia Maria Tig returned to the WTA last spring after an 18-month hiatus which was started by injuries. During that time away from professional tennis, she also gave birth to her daughter, Sofia. Having cracked the Top 100 in 2017, Tig has already returned to nearly those heights, with a current ranking of World No.105.

Linette and Tig have met once before, at a clay-court challenger event in Dobrich, Bulgaria back in 2012. Linette claimed victory in that match, 6-4, 6-4.

Swiss qualifier Leonie Kung is into her first-ever WTA semifinal, in just her second main-draw appearance at a WTA event. The 19-year-old, currently ranked No.283, was a finalist in the girls' junior singles at Wimbledon in 2018, where she fell at the final hurdle to Iga Swiatek.
