The draw for the US Open women’s team left a clash with sparks, between two veterans: Serena Williams (37 years old) and Maria Sharapova (32). The two, champions of the four ‘greats’. The American aspires again to win her 24th Grand Slam and match the Margaret Court record, but in Toronto she retired injured from the final.
The tournament, in which Naomi Osaka defends title, is open. And several tennis players aspire to take away the Japanese number one, which will debut in front of the Russian Anna Blinkova.
Garbiñe Muguruza, in the process of rebuilding after leaving his coach Sam Sumyk, has the first rival to the American Alison Riske (36th) and in the third round Sloane Stephens appears.
Carla Suárez, doubt about physical problems, will be released against a previous tennis player. Sara Sorribes will play in the first round against Estonia’s Anett Kontaveit and Aliona Bolsova will face the Czech Barbora Strycova. Paula Badosa is one victory away from the final draw.
