The 15-year-old Filipina is looking to claim her second pro tournament title after topping the first leg of the series held in Manacor.

Nuez, also ranked No. 619 by the WTA, is the latest experienced player who has lost to Eala.

Eala recently barged into the Top 1,000 of the WTA rankings, moving to No. 942 this week after a strong showing in her last two pro tournaments.
