Kuznetsova’s form in 2020 has been a little erratic. She had some real problems with her serve at the Australian Open. She is back on home soil and had a very strong win over Jennifer Brady in the last round. She faced 12 break points but was only broken once.

Bencic has made a better start to the year but still hasn’t fired on all cylinders. If Kuznetsova can main her 1st round form this can go to 3 but I favour Bencic to win. Back Bencic around 2.10. Lay the set 1 winner.
