Her reward is a match up against the top seed Jelena Ostapenko. The Latvian arrived in Linz on Wednesday after playing in the Australian Open doubles final on the Sunday, and finished a late match to reach the quarter-final.
Not surprisingly Burrage is trailing Ostapenko in the most of the stats, but leads in terms of return points won.
Playing Styles & Prediction
It has been a very successful foray outside of home tournaments for Burrage, where she has tended to enjoy the most success. This should give her some confidence going forward, but it is a touch task to take on the top seed.
Ostapenko might feel a little fatigued having finished late to reach the quarter-final but of course she has the benefit of plenty of experience to see her through moments like these.
Burrage will need to prepare herself for Ostapenko’s aggressive baseline play, as the Latvian will also look to move the Brit around so she can finish off with cross-court winners. Burrage is consistent enough, but it will be a good test of how resilient she can be to change her tactics up and inject some variety into her game.
It should serve Burrage well to kick on this season and know she has it to go deeper in the main tour events.
