Round 1 v/s Harmony Tan

Harmony is your basic counter puncher without any big weapons or exceptional mobility. She tends to hit many short balls when dragged wide, so Serena needs to take advantage of this. Harmony also tends to vary her play by hitting slices, drop shots, lobs and some serve and volley so Serena has to be alert with her footwork.

If Serena hits her forehand with conviction, moves well in the forecourt and maintains a high 1st serve percentage, she should win in straight sets. The worst thing Serena could do is get in long rallies with Harmony and / or play passively.

On paper this looks like a relatively straightforward win for Serena, however she has not played a singles match in a year. East Bourne was a good exercise to shake some rust however questions remain about Serena's form in singles. The new coach seems to have reinforced in Serena to hit her forehand more aggressively so hopefully she follows through with this strategy. While Serena's volleys were less than spectacular in her doubles matches, if she keeps improving on that front it will help her against higher ranked opponents.

Fingers crossed.
