Nara has had injury issues recently and pulled out of her match in the ITF clay tournament at the end of March. She had a good week in Indian wells reaching the third round as qualifier. This is her first match on red clay this year and she doesn’t have a great record on this surface in recent seasons.

Kovinic is quite consistent on clay and is rightly the favourite. I am hoping Nara manages a few decent games at the start and we get at least 1.80 on Kovinic. The sets could be close but I give her the edge
