Pick: Iga Swiatek to win in straight sets
Tomljanovic showed no major flaws in the first round. She secured a dominant victory against Zhang Shuai to confirm her spot in the round of 16. She only needs to defend her serve better this time.
Meanwhile, Iga Swiatek has been the most dominant player throughout this season. She won the US Open title. The World No. 1 demolished the same opponent (Tomljanovic) at the Canadian Open a few weeks ago. She also leads 2-0 in head-to-head against the Australian. However, she can appear vulnerable at the closing period of the year.
Considering everything, Iga Swiatek is expected to secure an easy win in straight sets.
