Elena Gabriela Ruse will be hoping to get back to winning on clay, where she holds an 141-78 record as a

professional. She also has her first WTA Tour title (last year in Hamburg). But it's been a difficult year

for the Romanian who is 13-14 in the past yearwhich includes a 2-5 record on clay. She also has 

lost six of her last seven matches. However, her recent performance doesn't reveal the full story.

In her four previous matches, all played on grass, she's beat Qiang Wang, snatched an unbeaten set against

grass court player Shuai Zhang and pushed Coco Gauff to 7-5 in the third. Ruse has a powerful power at the

center and has a the right amount of aggression on both sides. She's patient and knows when is the appropriate

moment to release the trigger. Kamilla Rakhimova is having an unlucky season since making the Bogota

semi-finals. Since the clay court run, Rakhimova has gone 5-10 with a clay-court record of 2-8. In every single

one of her clay defeats since Bogota the last time, she's not won the set. Rakhimova has a record of 47-31 on clay throughout her career
