Fifth-seed Giorgi won her maiden title back in 2015 on grass at 's-Hertogenbosch in the Netherlands and was runner-up in Linz the previous year.

Giorgi, 26, is set to rise to a new career-high ranking on Monday from her current position of 32 and will probably be seeded at the 2019 Australian Open, according to the WTA.
