It's an exciting day of tennis ahead as the third-round matches at the Qatar Open 2020 are scheduled to begin today. There are tough and intriguing clashes lined up with Australian Open 2020 finalist Garbine Muguruza, 2018 champion Petra Kvitova, Jelena Ostapenko and Belinda Bencic set to be in action at the Khalifa International Tennis and Squash Complex.

Switzerland's Bencic will likely have a tough time handling Yulia Putintseva as the 25-year-old player from Kazakhstan leads the head-to-head at 3-1 and will definitely make it difficult for fourth-seeded Bencic to get past her.

Australian Open finalist, Muguruza will have to take on teenager Dayana Yastremska, who leads Muguruza 2-1 in the head-to-head tally. Muguruza will have to play sharp to get past her feisty Ukranian opponent.

Another exciting clash comes in the form of Kvitova and Ostapenko who are set to rekindle their rivalry. With a 3-3 head-to-head tally, this match can go either way today. The eighth-seeded Kvitova will obviously have a slight edge but it remains to be seen if she can take it. The likes of Maria Sakkari, Svetlana Kuznetsova, Karolina Pliskova, Kiki Bertens are also scheduled to be in action in other matches of the day.
