Naomi is having a very convincing run in Indian Wells after she defeated Kiki Mladenovic 6-3 6-4 and Danielle Collins 6-4 6-2 in the first 2 matches. The Japanese has regained full confidence in her tennis, and the relationship with the new coach Jermaine Jenkins is working exceptionally well.
Ranked no.23, Belinda is on an 8-matches winning streak after she conquered the title in Dubai and she reached the 4th round in Indian Wells after she defeated Alison Van Uytvanck 6-4 6-1 and Ekaterina Alexandrova 6-4 6-2.
Head to head Naomi Osaka vs. Belinda Bencic
Naomi and Belinda have never played each other so far any official match. Osaka should be the favorite to get to the quarters.
