No1 seed Elina Svitolina and Maria Sakkari have faced each other twice, with the two meetings being less than a month apart in 2019 and starting with remarkably similar dynamics – but different results in the third round of Wimbledon, Svitolina held two match points at 6-3, 6-5 – but was forced to take the scenic route to a 6-3, 6-7 (1), 6-2 victory Four weeks later, in the quarter-finals in San Jose, the Ukrainian led 6-1, 5-3 and again had three match points for a straight-set victory – but this time Sakkari managed to complete the comeback, ultimately triumphing 1- 6, 7 -6 (3), 6-3 Today, the Greek will come forward for the fourth Top 5 victory of her career and second of the season, following her defeat to Belinda Bencic in the Quarter-finals of Petersburg in February

No5th seed Petra Martic has won his two previous encounters with wildcard Jelena Ostapenko, although the two matches were very different In the third round of Indian Wells 2018, the Croatian came back to a 6- victory. 3, 6-3 in consecutive sets – but in the 2019 Birmingham quarter-finals it was necessary to reverse a one-set and 0-4 deficit, saving four match points the way, before pulling off a 6-7 (4), 7-5, 6-1 win

No Seventh seed Elise Mertens leads her head-to-head against Amanda Anisimova 1-0, after beating the American 6-4, 6-2 in the second round of Indian Wells last year

No 8 seed Anett Kontaveit has yet to lose to qualifier Sara Sorribes Tormo in three games, all on the Grand Slam stage In 2019, the Estonian sent Sorribes Tormo to the first round of the Open Australia and the United States, losing just seven of the two matches – but in the second round of this year’s Australian Open it was taken as a decision before triumphing 6-2, 4-6 , 6-1

No Fourth seed Victoria Azarenka will try to reach her fourth quarter-final in her last five tournaments today against qualifier Barbora Krejcikova, who is seeking her first Top 20 victory
