Everything is ready and prepared! The WTA 500 from Moscow, which in the last hours notified the loss of Paula Badosa (27th) and joined Emma Raducanu (22nd), has already drawn the Main Draw and there will be action from several elite tennis players.
One of them will be Aryna Sabalenka (2nd), first seed, who will start from the round of 16 against the winner of the clash between Liudmila Samsonova (42nd) and Ajla Tomljanovic (47th). The latter comes from eliminating Garbiñe Muguruza (6th) in the second round of Indian Wells.
Muguruza, meanwhile, is the second seed and is also part of the Russian tournament and will begin its journey from the eighth: there he waits for the winner between a qualy and Tereza Martincova (52nd). The Spanish tennis player will seek to make a great performance and thus approach the WTA Tour Finals in Guadalajara.
The third sown is the Greek Maria Sakkari (9th), who waits for his debut for the tennis player who triumphs in the match between Dayana Yastremska (75th) and a qualy. The local player, Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova (13th) is among the 16 best and will go against a rival from the classification.
Finally, Ons Jabeur (14th), who was recently eliminated in the Indian Wells semi-finals against Badosa, will meet in the first round against Ekaterina Alexandrov (34th). It should be noted that after her participation in the American tournament, the Tunisian will be number nine in the world.
