Goerges lost the first set to American Kristie Ahn and ended up winning in a third set tie break. Her serve was not at its best. She won 45% of points on her serve.

Naomi Osaka

Osaka had a tight 2 sets win over Siegemund in the last round. Her serve was pretty solid. She was broken twice from 8 break chances. In her first match of the week she started by being broken by Jennifer Brady but fought back to win in straight sets.

For Goerges to have a chance here she needs to improve her serve. I give Osaka a slight edge. Back her above 2.00.
