Pegula won in straight sets over Asia Muhammad in the second round after receiving a first-round bye to set up her match with Giorgi. Muhammad was defeated 6-2, 7-5 by Jessica Pegula, who had previously lost in the second round of the Washington Open. Pegula thus advanced to the third round. The game lasted for one hour and forty-three minutes. Asia Muhammad broke Pegula to take a 2-0 lead in the first set, drawing first blood, but from that point on it was all in favour of the world number seven. Before serving the set out to love, she obtained three consecutive service breaks for herself. In the second game, Asia performed better and even stopped Pegula from serving the match out 5-4. However, Pegula broke her again in the eleventh game to win the set and the match and move on.

Elise Mertens has been out of form this season, especially more recently, when the effects of the defending champion Camila Giorgi were most evident. Despite missing her service three times during the match, the Italian won 6-3, 7-5 in an hour and 33 minutes. Giorgi faced three break-points throughout the match, but she lost her serve each time, which was unexpected. On the other hand, the Italian never put herself in danger of losing because she broke Mertens five out of the six times she had the chance to do so. Giorgi breezed through the opening set thanks to her quick start to a 4-0 lead. Mertens did manage to claw back a few times with breaks, but the Italian was able to finish the match without any difficulty. In the second game, they traded breaks in the third and fourth games before the outcome was decided by a crucial break in the eleventh game. Can Giorgi now match her performance from the prior season?
