Ostapenko had not been in the best of forms heading into the Miami Open, but form rarely matters to the Latvian youngster. Her fearless and swashbuckling style of play makes her one of the most dangerous players at any given tournament regardless of her previous results. She has once again underlined that status with a powerful run to her first Premier Mandatory final in Miami. Also competing in her first Premier Mandatory final is Sloane Stephens, who is back playing her best tennis after a post-US Open slump. Stephens went 0-8 after her stunning triumph at Flushing Meadows, but the American, who has admitted to overplaying, has been showing signs of a resurgence in recent weeks; and it has all come together once again in Miami.

One of these fine players will leave Miami with a first Premier Mandatory crown, and ahead of what should be a cracking final, we go through the numbers and stats of Ostapenko vs Stephens!
