Riske won their only previous meeting. That was in March 2018 on a hard court in Miami. She won in straight sets which included a tight first set.
Slightly better overall results for Riske in the last 12 months. She also leads on hard courts in the same period.
Riske reached the third round in Dubai last year. She reached the fourth round at the Australian Open losing to Ashleigh Barty in 3. She also made the quarter final in Brisbane where she lost to Karolina Pliskova in 2 close sets.
Jabeur reached the second round in Dubai in 2019. She had an excellent tournament in Melbourne and reached the quarter finals. In January she got through the qualifying rounds in Hobart and reached the second round of the main draw where she lost to Garbine Muguruza in a third set tie break,
We have a decent chance of seeing 3 sets. Back Riske around 2.20 to 2.30.
