Swiatek was the number one seed last year and she was able to go to the final and win the event by beating Gauff in the final. Aryna Sabalenka is the number one seed which should give her a favourable draw. She never advanced past the 3rd round in Paris so there is some making up to do. Jessica Pegula is 3rd, Elena Rybakina has cracked the top 5 at number 4 with Caroline Garcia number 5.
The rest of the top 10 consists of last year’s finalist Coco Gauff at number 6, Ons Jabeur at number 7, Maria Sakkari at number 8, Daria Kasatkina at number 9 and Petra Kvitova at number 10. 6 Coco Gauff
