Garbine Muguruza and Venus Williams will square off on Thursday evening for a place in the semi-finals at the WTA Finals in Singapore. Both Muguruza and Williams enter this match with 1 win and 1 loss to their name in the white group. Karolina Pliskova became the first to qualify for the semi-finals in the white group with a 2-0 record whilst Jelena Ostapenko was the first to be eliminated after going 0-2. This all means that Muguruza and Williams have everything to play for in this encounter, in what will be the first time the pair have gone head-to-head since their historic Wimbledon final earlier year which saw Muguruza win her second Grand Slam title.

Tuesday’s second match from the white group will be a blockbuster affair between two of the favourites in Singapore, Garbine Muguruza and Karolina Pliskova. Muguruza and Pliskova both cruised through their opening matches in Singapore and will enter this intriguing clash full of confidence. This has generally been a very good match-up for Pliskova, the Czech holds a 6-2 head-to-head record over the Spaniard and 6-1 record on hard courts. However, the most recent match between the pair ended in a straight set win for Muguruza in Cincinnati earlier this year, can Muguruza win back-to-back matches over Pliskova for the first time?

RR: βšͺ White Group: (2) πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡Έ Garbine Muguruza vs (7) πŸ‡±πŸ‡» Jelena Ostapenko

The only two Grand Slam winners from 2017 competing in Singapore will go head-to-head in what promises to be an intriguing encounter in the white group on Sunday evening. Muguruza is competing in Singapore for the third year in a row and will be hoping to go one step better than her previous best showing at the event which was a semi-final appearance in 2015. Ostapenko will be competing at the WTA Finals for the first time in her career after having a big breakthrough year in 2017. Muguruza holds a 2-1 head-to-head record over Ostapenko but it was the Latvian who emerged victorious in their most recent match, a 3 set win in Wuhan a couple of weeks ago. Which of these two confident young champions will hit the ground running in Singapore?

Garbine Muguruza vs Petra Kvitova, U.S Open R4 Preview

US Open, πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸŽπŸ—½πŸš• R4 Preview + Prediction:
(3) πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡Έ Garbine Muguruza vs (13) πŸ‡¨πŸ‡Ώ Petra Kvitova

Garbine Muguruza and Petra Kvitova have both strolled into the second week in New York without dropping a set. Muguruza is the form player on the tour at the moment but will face her biggest test of the tournament thus far when she comes up against a resurgent Petra Kvitova on Sunday. Muguruza will be the favourite heading into this match but Kvitova has won the last two matches between the pair and is always dangerous once she reaches the later stages of a big event. This should be an exciting contest.

Garbine Muguruza continues her U.S Open campaign on Thursday afternoon with a potentially tricky third round clash against Magdalena Rybarikova.
