Allertova won their only previous meeting. That was in October 2014 on an indoor hard court and she won in straight sets.
Allertova had a tough 3 set win over Mattek Sands in the last round. She had to fight for every point.
Lisicki saved all 4 break points that she faced against Cetkovska. She doesn’t have a great record in Melbourne. She has only been past the second round twice with 2012 being the last time.
Allertova lost at this stage last year.
Back Lisicki if she is broken first.
