Let’s take a look at these players as they go toe-to-toe in the first round of the Australian Open and check out how they fared against each other in the past:

Alison Van Uytvanck

Although Alison Van Uytvanck has had her fair share of success on the WTA Tour, she hasn’t fared too well in the Australian Open. The 28 year old has never gotten past the second round of this competition in her career. This will be a tricky fixture for Van Uytvanck however, as she takes on an in-form Kvitova.

Petra Kvitova

Petra Kvitova kicked off her 2023 campaign with a straight sets victory over Jessica Pegula. She has four wins in five matches so far this season, with those wins coming in straight sets. It’s important to note that Kvitova reached the final of this event four years ago, losing out in three sets; she’ll be eyeing a place in the second round of this competition as she faces Alison Van Uytvanck.
