Maria Sakkari preview

Maria Sakkari showcased her dominance with a commanding win over Seguel, conceding only a single game in the routing of the 671st ranked Chilean. This impressive performance serves as a stepping stone for Sakkari to leave behind her mixed 2023 campaign, where despite clinching the WTA 1000 Guadalajara Open title, the Grand Slam events proved challenging with three first-round exits. The victory over Seguel provides a positive momentum shift for Sakkari as she aims for a strong showing in the United Cup.

Leylah Fernandez preview

Leylah Fernandez kicked off her season on a strong note, securing a straight-set win over Daniela Seguel. This marked her fifth successive victory as she continues her comeback from previous injury concerns. Concluding the 2023 campaign with a 41-24 record, Fernandez triumphed in the Hong Kong Open and reached the semi-finals in Madrid and Nanchang. However, the Grand Slam events posed a hurdle, with no progress beyond the second round. Fernandez now looks to leverage her early-season success for an impactful performance in the United Cup.
