They have met just twice before. In April this year they played on clay in Stuttgart, Kvitova won in 3 sets. Muguruza won in 3 sets at the year end finals in October last year. That was on an indoor hard court and also went to a deciding set.
Kvitova has been in amazing form recently. She won the title last week in Wuhan only dropping a set to Kerber in the third round. This week she had a comfortable straight sets win over China’s Yafan Wang.
Muguruza’s form has been all over the place and this is the first time she won 2 matches since Cincinnati in August. Her serve looked vulnerable in both her matches this week and Begu took her to 3 sets in round 1.
If Kvitova continues her strong form this will be tough for Muguruza but be careful as we are likely to see a poor match from Kvitova soon.
Back Kvitova if she gets broken first
