This will be their first meeting.
Bouchard came through a scrappy match last night to beat Cibulkova. She had a few issues on serve as did Cibulkova, mainly in the first set. By the end she was fairly solid from the service line. She has made a better start to this season and perhaps she has her head on straight again.
Pavlyuchenkova played a good match to beat defending champ Kuznetsova in 2 sets. She had already beaten Sam Stosur pretty easily in the first round.
I think we get 3 sets here so we can lay the set 1 winner. Some value on Bouchard at the start. Lay Pavlyuchenkova if she breaks first.
