Zhuk is ranked a hundred places below Cornet, but the match won’t be as one-sided as the rankings suggest. Considering Cornet’s struggle in the past few weeks, the young Russian will fancy her chances to win the first Premier Mandatory match.
Alize Cornet WTA Picks
Alize Cornet will make her first appearance at the Indian Wells since 2015. She withdrew from the last two editions due to injuries.
Cornet had a decent month in Australia, when she reached the quarterfinal of Brisbane, defeating Caroline Garcia and Lucic-Baroni. At Melbourne, she ended the winning run of Julia Goerges to advance to the third round.
However, her form has been fluctuating a lot in the recent three tournaments. She offered no resistance to Kasatkina and Pliskova at St. Petersburg and Doha, before going down in easy straight sets.
Moreover, last week at Acapulco, she faced a shocking defeat at the hands of #139 Rebecca Peterson. The Frenchwomen’s serve broken five times in the match.
