Korpatch’s experience puts her as the favourite for this encounter, with strong figures from last year.
Playing Styles & Prediction
Burrage had a steady year, with the highlight being a WTA final on home soil, losing to Katie Boulter in Nottingham. Although she earned a call-up and court time for Great Britain in the Billie Jean King Cup at the end of the year, she squandered a commanding lead and was benched for the reverse singles in favour of Harriet Dart.
She will have something to prove, when she tries to overturn a 0-2 deficit in their head-to-head against Tamara Korpatsch. A solid counter-puncher, she will certainly look to move Burrage around the court by creating sharp angles but she has a weak second serve which sets itself up to be punished, and also lacks firepower.
Burrage is a steady baseliner, but she will need to switch things up if she wants to get her first main draw win at the Australian Open.
