Lao to beat Hon @ EVENS
Lao looks the more natural player on hard courts as her career record of 8- wins to 67 losses compared to Hon whois 54-47. Records over the last 12 months are very similar 22-12 compared to 21-10. Both players came through their first matches here fairly easily in straight sets, I fancy Lao to come through here as she is the more consistent of the two.

Kerkhove leads the head to head 2-0, they have never met on an indoor hard court, Zaja has an impressive 15-6 win-loss record indoors this season compared to Kerkhove 2-4.
