The first round of the Abu Dhabi Women’s Tennis Open 2021 is all set to witness an intriguing clash between two guileful players – Hsieh Su-Wei and Marketa Vondrousova.

Hsieh is coming off of a largely forgettable 2020 in terms of singles results. The 35-year-old could make it past the first round in only one of her seven main draw appearances, and she finished the year ranked just outside the top 60.

Hsieh would now be hoping to regain the form that saw her beat top players and stage deep runs at big events through most of 2019. Against Marketa Vondrousova, however, Hsieh definitely faces an uphill task.

Vondrousova would be hoping to play a full injury-free season in 2021. And a solid start against a seasoned campaigner such as Hsieh could do wonders for her confidence.

The Taiwanese No. 1 will have to protect her serve well, given how vulnerable it can be on occasion. But if she manages to find her stride early on, she could well give the eighth seed a a run for her money.

Prediction: Marketa Vondrousova to win in three sets.
