MATCH POINTS

Jakupovic had never faced a Top 20 player prior to this week - now she is facing her third consecutive Top 20 opponent.

This is the first time Strycova has faced Tsurenko in three seasons.

The Czech is looking to reach her first semifinal of the season - and first since winning the 2017 title in Linz.
