The main draw of the WTA 1000 in Madrid was drawn with an arsenal of female tennis players who will be present in the Spanish capital for the dispute of the tournament on brick dust but without the appearance of Nadia Podoroska.
Rosario reported, through her Instagram, that it is due to her hip pain. Podoroska played the Billie Jean King Cup for Argentina against Kazakhstan, but had previously rested from the same injury.
Ashleigh Barty as world number 1 is the top seed (debut vs. Shelby Rogers) of the box while Petra Kvitova (collides vs. Marie Bouzkova), current champion, could wait for her in the quarterfinals.
Also, Elina Svitolina vs. Jil Teichmann, Garbiñe Muguruza vs. Sloane Stephens, Sara Sorribes vs. Simona Halep, Karolina Pliskova vs. Coco Gauff and both Naomi Osaka and Aryna Sabalenka will debut before qualifying players.
Potential quarterfinals: Barty vs. Bertens Svitolina vs. Bencic Halep vs. Sabalenka Osaka vs. Pliskova
