The WTA Tour will be in Italy for the 33rd Palermo Ladies Open next week. After a five-year hiatus, the Sicilian tournament will returning in 2019. Last year’s winner was Danielle Collins.
The Palermo WTA 250 main draw will have a maximum of six Italian participants. Martina Trevisan, a semifinalist at Roland Garros, will be the tournament’s top seed.
Xiju Wang, the first-round opponent for Italy’s top-ranked player, is a qualifier, therefore the two could meet in a tricolor derby. After that, both Sara Errani and Elisabetta Cocciaretto are put into the same pot.
To give themselves an exciting battle with Caroline Garcia, the two Italian tennis players will compete in the first round.
Trevisan is the top seed at the WTA Palermo event. This tournament has so many Italians on the court!
There is a chance, though, that Jasmine Paolini will meet one of her fellow Italians in the semifinals.
Anna Karolina Schmiedlova and Shuai Zhang or Petra Martic will be the next opponents for the Tuscan. The seeded picture at the top will be closed by Nuria Parrizas Diaz.
In contrast, Italy’s Lucrezia Stefanini will compete in the main draw’s lower rounds. Due to a wild card, Stefanini will face Panna Udvardy for the first time in her career.
Anna Bondar’s route may then cross hers. Yulia Putintseva is the favorite to win the semifinal match. To make her way to the final, Sara Sorribes Tormo and Irina-Camelia Begu are going to do everything they can.
Tatjana Maria, this year’s All England Club lawn cheerleader, will be conspicuously absent from the competition. Due to a leg injury, the German had to raise the white flag.
