She has, in the past, caused all manner of problems in Grand Slams against quality opposition. The script for this match heavily depends on which Alize Cornet turns up. Im going to suggest that this will not be one of those times. Sam: Julia Goerges is my pick to reach the Australian Open final so it would be foolish to go against her here.

Jay: Elina Svitolina has arguably been the most impressive player of the season so far, having dropped only one set this year to Konta, so I believe she will continue her form and win against the Czech in two tight sets. Siniakova was impressive in Shenzhen and even took the World No.1 Halep to three sets in the final, but I believe Svitolina is too consistent for her.

Sam: For all her impressive performances over the last 18 months, Elina Svitolina has struggled to deliver at the Slams. That is bound to change at some point and this is a perfect opportunity to make a start against a crafty opponent. Siniakova, the latest player off the Czech production line, gave Simona Halep all manner of problems in the recent Shenzhen final and will be a handful for Elina Svitolina here as well.

James:Neither of these two players is a picture of consistency, but I firmly believe that Julia Goerges will do well in this tournament. She is still riding on a wonderful wave of form and confidence from the latter stages of last year, and she should have enough in her locker to overpower Cornet, who can lose her cool out on court if things do not quite go her way.

James:This will be a game of attrition, where neither player is going to want to give their opponent an inch of control over the baseline. Puig needs a good Grand Slam run if she is to silence the doubters who view her Olympic gold medal in Rio as a fluke, and she has a great opportunity to do so now. Kanepi is the more experienced of the two, but the speed of the court and the heat will favor the Puerto Ricans game.

This will be a close encounter, but the flair and youth of Kontaveit will be too much for Barthel to handle. She comes up against 27-year-old Mona Barthel, who will see this as an opportunity to put together a good Grand Slam run to begin the season. James:Kontaveit is one of the games most exciting young prospects and, having risen up to No.33 in the world, we can undoubtedly expect more from this incredibly talented Latvian.

Barthel to sneak a surprise win here. The Estonian is a bright talent in the game but can be erratic and also withdrew from Sydney in the lead up to the Australian Open. Barthel had won just one match since August while Kontaveit too had been struggling for wins. Sam: It is perhaps a surprise that these two made it to the second round given their form coming into the tournament.

Unfortunately for her, however, Elina Svitolina has been in scintillating form recently and will overpower the young Czech from the baseline. James:Katerina Siniakova is touted by many as being the future of Czech female tennis, and with good reason. The 21-year-old has built a name for herself in recent years, especially on the doubles circuit, where she reached the final of the US Open last year.
