Garbine Muguruza meets Jennifer Brady in the quarterfinals of the 2020 WTA Dubai Open. Who will book their spot in the semifinals?

Garbine Muguruza beat Veronika Kudermetova in 3 tough sets. Muguruza started out the match looking like the better player, however, as the match went on it became more evenly matched and Muguruza began to miss shots she doesn't normally miss. Muguruza had to get her focus and game back in the third set if she wanted to stay in the tournament, and she was able to maintain her composure a bit more than Kudermetova. Muguruza cannot afford to have dips in form like this if she wants to win the title here in Dubai, but she is a highly experienced player and will work to make sure it does not happen again.

Jennifer Brady is a very experienced player, but not at this level in the WTA Tour. Brady has had some luck booking her spot in the quarterfinals as she beat an injured Elina Svitolina in the first-round, and was able to comeback against Vondrousova who just lot control after the first set. Brady will need to up her level and it will be interesting to see how she handles the situation against such an experienced player like Muguruza.

This will be the first meeting between both players, and it is time for Brady's luck to run out. Brady is out of place being here and the former world No.1, Garbine Muguruza, will come out and refocus after a tough match. Muguruza will dominate from the start.

Garbine Muguruza to win.
