Anastasija Sevastova v Garbine Muguruza Live
Third seeded Spaniard Garbine Muguruza will face the Latvian Anastasija Sevastova for the first time on the tour. The two players will compete in the second round of US Open.
Garbine Muguruza is coming in this game after surviving a scare in the first round against the Belgian Elise Mertens. With as much as 40 unforced errors, the world no. 3 had to stage a comeback 2-6, 6-0, 6-3, to win the match. Anastasija Sevastova on the other hand moved past the Slovakian Anna Karolina Schmiedlova 6-3, 6-3, in just a little over an hour. With only two unforced errors and 82% win rate on first serve, she has proven herself to be a strong player. Her season however hasn't been as illustrious as Garbine Muguruza 's. She was the runner-up in couple of events in Mallorca and Bucharest, while rest of her season has revolved around her unsuccessful attempts to get past the opening rounds. As for Spaniard, she won the French Open this year by defeating Serena Williams - a feat which took her to the top three.
Anastasija Sevastova is a strong player, having defeated the likes of Eugenie Bouchard, Sara Errani and Jelena Jankovic this year. While we can expect a strong fight from her, it should be Garbine Muguruza in the end to emerge victorious.
