12:30 – Stosur v Szavay
Rankings are 13 and 42. Szavay won their only previous meeting which was in 2007.
Szavay hasn’t has many wins recently and may feel that she has little to lose. She could give Stosur some problems today. However Stosur won the Japan Open last month and her confidence should be high.
I’d expect Stosur to come through this one but it could be close.
Update: 3 setter with Stosur winning 6-2, 3-6, 6-1. Szavay put up a good fight but couldn’t keep it going throughout the deciding set.
