It's amazing how success in a team environment can inspire a tennis player to greater individual heights. Last week Keothavong enjoyed the best week of her Fed Cup career, helping Great Britain reach the World Group II playoffs for the first time in nearly twenty years. Now after a round-the-world flight to Pattaya City she stunned everyone by outplaying second seed (and world number 16) Dominika Cibulkova 6-4, 6-1.   

"I didn't have too many expectations going in to today's match as I felt a little under-cooked having only arrived yesterday from Fed Cup in Israel but I surprised myself," Keothavong said. "The courts are super fast here and it's hot and humid. Cibulkova only arrived yesterday too but I think the courts favored my game more and I was quicker to adjust."

In this form Keothavong has a great chance to go deep. Mirza is more aggressive than Cibulkova, with a very solid forehand but she's also more inconsistent. India's leading female player pulled off a 3-6, 6-1, 6-2 win over the tricky Japanese player Ayumi Morita but Keothavong will feel she has a chance.

The duo are 1-1 on the head-to-heads with Keothavong winning 7-6(4), 6-1 in Stanford four years ago and Mirza getting revenge 6-1, 7-6(5) in Birmingham a year later.

Prediction: Keothavong in two.
