This will be their first meeting.
Kontaveit has still only lost 2 matches from 14 this year. She has come through the qualifying rounds this week. She won an ITF title on indoor hard courts in January though still hasn’t won a main draw WTA match in 2017.
Doi started slowly in 2017 with 3 losses from 4 matches in the first 3 tournaments. She then reached the quarter finals in Taipei losing a very tight match to Safarova. Her last tournament was Dubai where she lost to Vesnina in the second round.
Their recent results on hard courts are quite close. I think Doi can push the price higher on Kontaveit. Back Kontaveit if she gets broken or loses set 1.
