Match scheduled in Hobart. The matches so far held against Yulia Putintseva have proved negative for Lesia Tsurenko, who remedied a 6-1 6-0 defeat in New Haven in 2015 and was forced to retire due to physical problems in 2016 in Moscow, after losing the first set with the score of 6-3. The bad memories related to the two above-mentioned direct comparisons could affect the Ukrainian player, whose approach to the challenge is likely to be complicated.
