The draw for Cincinnati gave several interesting crosses between the ladies with a curiosity above all: the Olympic final from a few weeks ago between Belinda Bencic and Marketa Vondrousova will be reissued.
While the returns of Ash Barty and Naomi Osaka will draw attention, the premiere match between those who played for Gold in Tokyo just a few days ago will have a kind of rematch.
On August 1, the Swiss defeated the Czech 7-5, 2-6 and 6-3 in the final. It will even be the third game of the year between the two since they coincided in Miami with a victory, in this case, for Vondrousova 4-6, 6-4 and 6-4.
It should be noted that in this tournament, Nadia Podoroska will collide with Elise Mertens in the debut.
Potential quarter-final crosses:
Barty vs. Muguruza
Svitolina vs. Swiatek
Pliskova vs. Sabalenka
Andreescu vs. Osaka
