Jelena Ostapenko vs. Garbine Muguruza 2017 Wuhan Open Quarterfinal Pick, Odds, Prediction

The victor of Barty's meeting with world number four Pliskova will face either Muguruza or Ostapenko in the semi-finals.

It was not a good day for the other Pliskova sister, though, with top seed and defending champion Kristyna beaten 7-6 (7/5) 6-1 by Kurumi Nara in the second round of the Tashkent Open.

"I was struggling with my game obviously", she said. The top seed broke early for a 2-1 lead, and with Ostapenko spraying errors all around the court, the Spaniard was able to secure a double break lead and holding for a commanding 5-1 advantage. But in the second set, the Latvian broke Muguruza four times to lead 5-3.

I want to pick Ostapenko in this match, but I can't based on how she served in her last match.


However 23-year-old Muguruza then regained her composure to win the deciding set 6-4, to set up a quarter-final date with French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko. But I think it's even better to play matches because you get used them, and you're more confident.

The 20th-ranked Frenchwoman will play Maria Sakkari for a place in the final. Muguruza needed two hours and three minutes to book a spot in the quarterfinals, where she will face #Jelena Ostapenko. "She had a very good moment in the second set but that didn't disturb me to just keep going".

"It was a pretty close match at the end", said Muguruza.

Muguruza, who had been hunting for her first victory as the top-ranked player in the world, found herself grappling with a knee injury that has plagued her for the past two weeks.


A long year. We've worked very hard.

A brief pause to dry the courts following a rain shower couldn't save Muguruza, and Linette served the set out to love in the next game.

"I've played Karolina a couple of times now, and it's been very close every time", Barty said.

"She will face Caroline Garcia, who registered her 39th tourā€level match win of season and clinched the fifth semifinal, the first ever in a Premier 5 event as she beat Ekaterina Makarova 7-6 6-4".
