THE PREDICTION

There is plenty of spotlight on Naomi Osaka coming into this first round match against Misaki Doi as she has been nursing a hamstring injury since being forced to withdraw from the Western & Southern Open final in New York last weekend. The fourth seed won the tournament back in 2018 and would have had high hopes prior to the injury last weekend so this will be a test to see if she has recovered in time. Her compatriot Misoki Doi is highly unlikely to cause her any real problems and a straight sets victory for Osaka is on the cards but only if her body holds up. This matchup is definitely one to observe and see how Osaka gets on especially at the odds on offer.
