MATCH POINTS

It has been more than five years since Mandy Minella and Belinda Bencic played. In 2013, Bencic, then WTA World No.279, won their only previous meeting in Osaka qualifying.

The last of Victoria Azarenka’s 10 meetings with Vera Zvonareva was back in 2011, when they met in the semifinals of the WTA Tour Championships. Azarenka won, 6-2, 6-3.

Zvonareva has a 6-4 winning record against the Belarusian, including their only previous meeting on clay, which came in the final of Prague 2008.

Anett Konatveit reached a career-high ranking of WTA World No.14 earlier this month.

Caroline Garcia won the only previous meeting between the pair, 7-6(2), 2-6, 6-4, in Luxembourg in 2016.

Julia Goerges has won four of her previous six meetings with Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, including both previous matches on clay.

The pair met in Stuttgart in 2012, with the German winning the day, 5-7, 6-3, 6-4 – their only previous three-set match.

Goerges won the Stuttgart crown in 2011.
