Ana vs Svitolina

Ana will take on Ukrainian world No.43 Elina Svitolina in the second round of the BNP Paribas Open on Saturday. It will be the third meeting between the pair, with Ana leading the head-to-head series 2-0.

Both the pair's previous matches took place on outdoor hard courts: Ana triumphed 6-3, 6-2 in the first round of the 2012 US Open, and she was a 6-3, 6-0 victor in the second round of last year's Toray Pan Pacific Open in Tokyo.

Svitolina reached round two by beating Puerto Rican Monica Puig 6-4, 7-5. She has been highly active in 2014, playing 15 matches already and winning nine of them.

Indian Wells has traditionally been a good event for Ana: she won it in 2008, was a finalist in 2009, and a semi-finalist in 2011.

The match is scheduled to begin on Stadium 4 at 11am local time (8pm Central European Time; 2pm Eastern Time).
