Garbine Muguruza and Svetlana Kuznetsova will go head-to-head for the third time in 2017 when they meet at the quarter-final stage of the Western & Southern Open on Friday. Kuznetsova will be hoping it is third time lucky against Muguruza this year as it was the Spaniard who won their two previous matches this year. Muguruza enters this quarter-final clash on a high after saving match points to defeat Madison Keys for the first time in four attempts. Kuznetsova is also playing good tennis this week and will be eager to win this match given her recent disappointments against Muguruza. Recent form suggests it is Muguruza that will continue her recent dominance of Kuznetsova.

7th seeded Svetlana Kuznetsova begins her 2017 Wimbledon campaign on Tuesday when she comes up against Tunisian qualifier Ons Jabeur.
