Sixth seed Aryna Sabalenka will take on tenth seed Coco Gauff in the Third Round of the 2022 National Bank Open in Toronto on Thursday.
Former world number two Sabalenka, twice a Grand Slam semi-finalist last year, is vying to claim her first Canadian Open crown.
The Belarusian battled past Spain’s Sara Sorribes Tormo in straight sets on Wednesday, but double faults continue to be a concern, making 16 during the contest.
Runner-up in Stuttgart and ‘s-Hertogenbosch this season, Sabalenka is out to reach her sixth Quarter-Final of the campaign and was a semi-finalist here 12 months ago.
However, she faces a formidable Third Round test against 18-year-old sensation Gauff – who reached her first Grand Slam final at this year’s French Open.
The world number 11 came through a dramatic three-setter to edge out Wimbledon champion Elena Rybakina in the Second Round on Wednesday and will be full of confidence coming into this encounter.
Gauff is also aiming to reach her sixth Quarter-Final of the season and has won two of her three previous meetings with Sabalenka.
Either former world number one Simona Halep or Jil Teichmann will await the winner in the Quarter-Finals on Friday.
Sabalenka v Gauff is available to watch via a live stream on desktop, mobile or tablet devices from approximately 4pm BST.
