Monday, May 9:

The tournament begins with a penalty awarded by Viktoria Azarenka (BLR) to Switzerland’s Viktoria Golubic 6/3 6/0. A little later it is Simona Halep who logically dominates Alizé Cornet 6/4 6/4, the only Frenchwoman (ladies and men combined) present in the big picture.

Continuation of the program with the surprise defeat in three rounds of Veronika Kudermetova (RUS) against Aljaksandra Sasnovich (BLR). Petra Martic (CRO) beat Karolina Muchova (TCH) in three sets as well.

Anhelina Kalinina (UKR), in big progress this year, dominates Madidon Keys (USA) 6/4 6/4. Cori Gauff (USA) easily dismisses the former world No. 1 Angelique Kerber (GER), Belinda Bencic also passes this T1 without worry.

Let’s also highlight the defeat in three sets of Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova (RUS), returning after a long break due to injury, beaten in three sets by Leylah Fernandez (CAN)

Tuesday May 10

Jill Teichmann (SUI) and Amanda Anisimova, brilliant last week in Madrid, pass T1 against Jasmine Paolini (ITA) and Tereza Martincova (TCH).

Jessica Pegula (USA to surprise finalist in Spain narrowly escapes Ludmila Samsonova (RUS) 4/6 6/3 6/4.

Madison Brengle (USA) takes out Marta Kostuyk (UKR), Camila Osorio, the Colombian prodigy, defeats Lucia Bronzetti (ITA). Small surprise with the defeats of Jelena Ostapenko (LET) against Lauren Davis (USA) and that of Shelby Rogers (USA) against Elena Gabriela Ruse (ROU).

Great performance for Ekaterina Alexandrova (RUS) who punishes Sloane Stephens (USA) 6/1 6/2. Elena Rybakina and Sara Sorribes Tormo also cross this T1.

Wednesday May 11

On a good dynamic for two months, the former great hope of world tennis Amanda Anisimova (USA) continues her momentum by releasing a very irregular Belinda Bencic since her Olympic title 7/6 6/1.

Great performance also for Petra Martic (CRO) who goes out in two runs Anett Kontaveit (EST / TDS 5) 6/2 6/3. Elena Rybakina also qualifies for the 1/8 by leaving Lauren Davis just like Aryna Sabalenka, easily, against Shuhai Zhang.

A Swiss out but another shines, with Jill Teichmann, brilliant in Madrid, full of confidence who offers Karolina Pliskova (TCH / TDS 6) 6/2 4/6 6/4

Vitkoria Azarenka, Coco Gauff and Jessica Pegula, following the WOs of Anhelina Kalinina, also passed this round. Bianca Andreescu (CAN), who has finally found the pleasure of playing, leaves Nuria Parrizas Diaz.

Iga Swiatek, back, atomizes the Romanian Elena Gabriela Ruse while Garbine Muguruza, in the midst of a crisis of confidence, lost this time against Yulia Putintseva (KAZ) 3/6 7/6 6/1.

In the evening, Danielle Collins takes out Simona Halep thanks to two solid runs. The Romanian, despite all her goodwill and the contribution of her new coach, still has her work cut out for her before Roland Garros.

Thursday May 12: The 1/8th finals

Iga Swiatek (POL) vs. Viktoria Azarenka (BLR): 6/4 6/1

After two or three complicated games, the world No. 1 started the machine and very quickly took the measure of her rival. Impressive, she continues her long series of victories.

Bianca Andreescu (CAN) vs Petra Martic (CRO): 6/4 6/4

Great victory and good level of play for the Canadian who puts an end, with authority, to the beautiful course of her rival.

Aryna Sabalenka (BLR) vs. Jessica Pegula (USA): 6/1 6/4

Almost uneventful match for the Belarusian who finally finds some color after losing 5 places in the WTA ranking. She won without trembling after 1h07 of play against the finalist from Madrid.

Amanda Anisimova (USA) vs. Danielle Collins (USA): 6/2 6/2

The young American confirms her good mood at the moment and atomizes her eldest, TDS 7, in just 39 minutes of play!!!

Yulia Putintseva (KAZ) vs. Ons Jabeur (TUN) : 3/6 2/6

Undoubtedly more relaxed since her success in Madrid, the Tunisian, WTA N°7, climbed to the quarter-finals quietly.

Cori Gauff (USA) vs. Maria Sakkari (GRE) : 4/6 5/7

Logical victory for the No. 6 seed against the young American who still can’t win against the very best.

Jill Teichmann (SUI) vs Elena Rybakina (KAZ): 6/7 6/3 7/5

Semi-finalist in Madrid, the Swiss left-hander never stops winning. After 3 hours of play, and a constant battle against the striker Rybakina, Teichmann once again shows his teeth in money time.

Daria Kasatkina (RUS) vs Paula Badosa (ESP): 6/4 6/4

Big surprise in the evening with this unexpected victory for the Russian player against the Spanish N°1. Ranked 23rd in the WTA, Kasatkina signs one of the best performances of her career.

Friday May 13: The 1/4 finals

Iga Swiatek vs Bianca Andreescu: 7/6 6/0

The world No. 1 was seriously snagged in the first heat by a Canadian on her way back. She will then increase in power and punish her rival, physically struggling on all exchanges.

As a result, the world No. 1 won for the 26th consecutive time on the circuit!!!

Aryna Sabalenka vs. Amanda Anisimova: 4/6 6/3 6/2

After five consecutive defeats and no victory against the American, the Belarusian did violence to return a badly embarked match and finally qualify for her first semi-final in a major tournament since the US Open 2021.

Ons Jabeur vs Maria Sakkari: 1/6 7/5 6/1

The winner of the Madrid tournament, started very badly, never gave up. As usual, the Tunisian fought on every point, especially during this second round which will become decisive.

Jill Teichmann vs. Daria Kasatkina : 4/6 2/3 surrender

The day ended with difficulty for the Swiss, visibly injured, who withdrew from the tournament in the middle of the second set. The Russian, who did not ask for so much, unexpectedly climbed into the half of a WTA 1000.

Saturday May 13: The 1/2 finals

Iga Swiatek vs Aryna Sabalenka: 6/2 6/1

Impressive, calm, precise, attacking, serene, the young world No. 1, only 20 years old, sickened her Belarusian rival. Here is in contention for a 5th tournament victory this year, while continuing its record series of 27 consecutive successes.

Ons Jabeur vs Daria Kasatkina: 6/4 1/6 7/5

No surprise in this second semi-final but the Russian will have given a lot of work to the Tunisian who managed two completely crazy weeks with the title in Madrid and at least one final in Rome.
