Fourth on Centre Court, not before 6:30pm (5:30pm BST)
Given how little Raducanu has played this year, compared to Ostapenko, she stacks up relatively well, especially with break points saved.
Playing Styles & Prediction
On the slick indoor surface. Raducanu’s naturally aggressive game means she should be able to dominate nice and early, but her injury-prone year won’t be helped by the speed of the clay indoors.
Thankfully both will have to quickly adjust as for Ostapenko too, it is her first foray onto clay. Both play aggressive tennis, and Ostapenko can have patience to build up the point, while Raducanu will quickly figure things out on court.
After a good start to the year with the Australian Open quarter-final, Ostapenko has struggled to get any further but has had more court time that Raducanu, whose injury woes have continued this year with a rolled ankle at the start of the year, and continuing wrist issues.
