Ladies top seed Azarenka is slated to take on Dominika Cibulkova of Slovakia in the second fixture of the day at the cancha central. The Belarusian took on Polona Hercog in the first round here, coming from behind to claim a 4-6, 6-3, 6-1 victory.

Prior to this tournament here, Azarenka had won the WTA title at the Brisbane International and made the quarterfinals at the Australian Open where she was ousted by Angelique Kerber.

Cibulkova’s best performance this year came at the WTA Hobart where she made the semi-finals. She was beaten by Eugenie Bouchard on the occasion. She crashed out of the Australian Open in the first round itself and made the quarterfinals at the WTA St. Petersburg before featuring at this tournament. She had gone on to defeat Lourdes Dominguez Lino 6-0, 6-0 in a brilliant effort.

These two ladies share a tremendous amount of past history with 10 prior meetings. Azarenka has won seven of these fixtures with three going the other way. Their last meeting had come at the 2015 Australian Open round-of-16 where Cibulkova had defeated the Belarusian in straight sets.

Ferrer will take on Ukrainian Alexandr Dolgopolov in the first fixture of the day at the cancha central. The Spaniard beat John Millman 6-4, 6-2 in straight sets the other day to make it into the second round here. Even otherwise, Ferrer has had a decent time this season with a couple of semi-final and a couple of quarterfinal appearances.

Dolgopolov defeated Steve Johnson in straight sets in the first round here but the match was hardly a one-way encounter with Johnson giving the Ukrainian plenty to ponder. Dolgopolov had come into the tournament on the backs of a quarterfinal appearance at the ATP Rio.

Even these two players have met 10 times in the past with Ferrer winning eight of those matches. They last met at the 2015 Paris Masters where the Spaniard tamed Dolgopolov in straight sets. A similar outcome can be expected yet again.
