πŸ‡·πŸ‡Ί Ekaterina Makarova vs πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡Έ Carla Suarez Navarro

Ekaterina Makarova finally claimed her first career victory over Caroline Wozniacki to move into the third round in New York where she will face Carla Suarez Navarro. Makarova was seemingly on route to a straight set win over Wozniacki but was dragged into a third set where she regrouped to secure a 6-2 6-7 6-1 win. Makarova had a 0-7 head-to-head record heading into her match with Wozniacki and will need to overcome another very negative head-to-head record if she is progress any further in New York. Suarez Navarro holds a 6-2 head-to-head record over Makarova and easily accounted for the Russian earlier this year in Eastbourne. Makarova is in much better form heading into this match and despite the negative record, she does have the game to really trouble the Spaniard.
