Garbine Muguruza and Sara Sorribes Tormo will play each other in the opening round of the 2018 WTA Hong Kong Open.

Sara Sorribes Tormo has had a tough Asian season as for the China Open while losing at the opening rounds of the Guangzhou Open, Japan Open and Wuhan Open. Sara Sorribes Tormo’s biggest issue has been her serving as she lost 9 service games opening round defeat at the Wuhan Open. With such a poor run of form heading into this tournament, Sara Sorribes Tormo will find it hard to compete with an opponent who has won grand slams in the past.

On the other side of the coin, Garbine Muguruza enters this tournament following a disappointing WTA China Open where she lost to Aryna Sabalenka in the second round. Muguruza was outclassed in that match as she failed to cope with her opponents powerful serve and strong baseline play. In addition to that, Muguruza also struggled with her serve as Sabalenka broke won 4 of the Spaniard’s service games. It has been a tough few months for Garbine Muguruza as she has struggled with injury and that has caused her to fall out of the top 10 in the WTA rankings. Muguruza has a very good record in Asia having won the WTA China Open and finished second at the WTA Wuhan Open in the past. With such a strong record on this part of the tour, Garbine Muguruza will hope to turn her form around and return to winning ways.

This will be the first time that Garbine Muguruza and Sara Sorribes Tormo will play each other at an ATP event.

All in all, I am going to  pick Garbine Muguruza to win this match. Muguruza is the better play and has experience of doing well in the past in Asia. With Sara Sorribes Tormo in poor form, I see Muguruza winning this match and making it into the second round of the Hong Kong Open.
