Rebecca Peterson v Lucia Bronzetti Head to Head
The pair have never played each other before. This will be the first match between the 26-year old Swede, and the Italian, who is four years younger.
Swedish Number One Peterson
The current Swedish number one, Peterson won her two career titles within a month of each other in China in 2019, clinching for the Jiangxi and then the Tianjin Open events.
That helped her close the year at a career high ranking of world number 43, although she has slipped a little since then.
Recent results have been mixed for the Swede. She was beaten in the first round of Wimbledon by Ons Jabeur, and then having reached the semi-finals of a Challenger tournament on home soil in Bastad, she was chosen to represent her country at the Olympic Games.
Chicago proved to be a more successful outing for her. She got to the semi-finals and only lost to the eventual winner Elia Svitolina in three sets.
However, she was drawn against Elise Mertens of Belgium in the first round of the US Open, and, although she won the first set, she lost the next two, both via tie-breaks.
Bronzetti Qualifies for Another WTA Tournament
Bronzetti made her WTA main tour debut earlier this year in the doubles of her home event, the Italian Open, where she was partnered with compatriot Nuna Brancaccio.
She spends the majority of her time on the ITF tour, where she has appeared in seven finals , five of them this year. She won in Sharm El Sheikh on a hard court and then in Le Havre on clay, and was the runner-up, again on clay, in Bellinzona, Jonkoping and Turin.
This is the third time she has made the main draw of a WTA singles event this year. In Lausanne, she came through qualifying, before losing to the eventual winner, Tamara Zidansek.
And then in Parma a week later, she also got to the third round, losing on that occasion to Elena Gabriela Ruse of Romania.
Those events were on clay, her favourite surface, and making it to the main draw of a hard court event is a new experience for her.
She was pushed hard in the first round of qualifying by Fanny Stollar, dropping the first set to the Hungarian before bouncing back to win the next two. However, Samantha Murray of Greta Britain, the world number 255, proved to be a much easier opponent to beat on Monday, and the Italian won in straight sets, conceding just five games in the process.
Peterson v Bronzetti Prediction and Tip
Peterson will start the clear favourite against the Italian qualifier, who has little experience at this level, and is more at home on clay.
