Marion Bartoli and Sam Stosur have met three times in the past. The Aussie has taken two of those matches but she could be in trouble tomorrow.

Marion Bartoli, a semifinalist from the 2011 French Open, and Sam Stosur, a player who went out in the third round of the same event, will meet for the fourth time in their careers on Friday as the two top ten players are scheduled to face one another in the semifinals of the WTA Eastbourne tournament (2011 AEGON International).

Stosur enters the match as the favorite, partly because she leads Bartoli on head-to-heads in their careers. The two players have met three times before with the Aussie taking down two of those matches although they have yet to meet on the grass court surface.

Their last match came from Stuttgart on clay with Stosur clearly outplaying the French player 6-2, 6-1. That match did take place at a time when Stosur was playing her best tennis as a little while after the Stuttgart event the Australian made her run to the 2010 French Open final.

Both players are into the semifinals following upset victories as Stosur eliminated Vera Zvonereva in a tough three set match in Eastbourne. Bartoli was leading Victoria Azarenka in their quarterfinal match before the Belarussian retired from the contest.

Bartoli could be under-rated heading into this contest as her recent run to the Roland Garros semifinals implies that she is playing at a very high level of tennis right now. She's been among the best players for years now but, like most players, her form goes through peaks and valleys.

Their match is scheduled second on Centre Court in Eastbourne on Firday with scheduling information provided below.

CENTRE COURT start 11:30am (UK time)

[5] Petra Kvitova (CZE) vs Daniela Hantuchova (SVK) - WTA
[7] Sam Stosur (AUS) vs [6] Marion Bartoli (FRA) - WTA
