This will be the first time they have played.
Loeb has come through the qualifying rounds. She beat Hradecka in straight sets.
Rodina has had some decent weeks this year but is very inconsistent. She has had a fair amount of success on carpet but not much recently.
I think this one can be close. I give a slight edge to Rodina. but if she is a little below her best we could see 3 sets.
Back Rodina if she is broken and Loeb also holds. She starts around 1.45.
