This is their first meeting.
Suarez Navarro dropped a set to Sakkari in the last round. She isn’t as sharp as she was in the early half of last season.
Kulichkova has beaten Petkovic and Niculescu so far. Her form has been nothing special but things are going her way this week.
I think this can go to 3 sets. Suarez Navarro isn’t at her best but I expect her to find a way to win.
Back Suarez Navarro above 1.70
