Ana Ivanovic vs. Elena Vesnina
Ana proved to be the undisputed queen of this event by winning against Stosur. She maintains her flawless record in Tournament of Champions and looks set to continue her winning ways against Vesnina. The Russian lost a set against Pironkova, which is an indication of her dire form. Ana will wallop Elena and end the Russian's season here.
Pick: Ivanovic in 2 sets
Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova vs Alize Cornet
The winner of this match proceeds to the semi-final, so I believe they will be fighting their hearts out. On the fast indoor courts, you have to favour the Russian. Cornet's loopy strokes will be sitting ducks for Anastasia to punish. However, I believe the Frenchwoman will put up a good fight before going down.
Pick: Pavlyuchenkova in 3 sets
Samantha Stosur vs. Tsvetana Pironkova
Stosur in 2 easy sets. I repeat myself, Pironkova doesn't belong here.
