Rus has had a really difficult year, where most of her wins have come at ITF level on the clay. She’s managed to win two ITF events on the clay, but hasn’t had much success at tour level. Her first ITF win she was a heavy favourite in every match (1.06, 1.07, 1.04, 1.24, 1.1) and her second was very similar (1.38, 1.05, 1.12, 1.16, 1.26). She’s played some hard court matches the other week, where she lost in the QF as a heavy favourite, she also struggled against someone ranked 595.
She will be hoping for a miracle to beat Rogers.
Shelby Rogers will be happy with her performances this past month, she reached the final in San Jose where she lost from a set up to Kasatkina. She had to beat Andreescu, Sakkari, Anisimova and Kudermetova to get to the final, and won in straight sets against every opponent (with each set never reaching over 10 games).
She will be raring to go, and will be very confident against Rus.
The pair have faced each other once in 2019, where Rogers won in three sets.
As I mentioned previously, Rogers is just so much better in these conditions than Rus. This should be a very straightforward win.
