The WTA China Open draw has just been released, and we break it down to find the best outright selections in this monumental Premier Mandatory tournament!

With three women qualified, the other five spots are up for grabs, especially as world no. 7 Serena Williams isn’t partaking in this 1000 point tournament.</span></p><p dir="ltr"><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55">For those who don't make it to Shenzhen, the WTA Elite Trophy Zhuhai spots are up for grabs, comprised of the top 11 players that didn't qualify for Shenzhen - plus one wild card. In other words, still plenty to play for when it pertains to the majority of the top 30. </span></p><p dir="ltr"><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55">Other players are just trying to make a solid run to pocket big points and big cash, in this Premier Mandatory event with a $8,285,274 prize pool. The China Open has been on tour since 2004, and an interesting fact about this tournament was the fact that it was the first outside of the US to implement the Hawkeye system back in 2006. It wasn’t until 2009 that Beijing became the place of a Premier Mandatory tournament however. </span></p><p dir="ltr"><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55">Since that upgrade, only Caroline Wozniacki and Agnieszka Radwanska have been able to win the title on more than one occasion. Played on a quick outdoor hard court, conditions favor power hitters and their game. But they also serve skilled counter punchers well, as the ball comes at them with so much pace to work with, absorb and redirect. Without further ado, let’s get into the draw!</span></p><p><br /> </p><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55"><h2 dir="ltr">The Draw</h2></span><p dir="ltr"><span>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;Main draw &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/ChinaOpen?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;@ChinaOpen&lt;/a&gt;. &lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Wuhan semifinalist Alison Riske receives a performance bye. &lt;a href=\"https://t.co/69aQ8hsqk0\"&gt;pic.twitter.com/69aQ8hsqk0&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;— WTA Insider (@WTA_insider) &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/WTA_insider/status/1177485334713487361?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;September 27, 2019&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt; &lt;script async src=\"https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;"}[/]</span></p><p> </p><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55"><h2 dir="ltr">Quarter 1</h2></span><p dir="ltr"><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55"><strong>Projected quarter final if the seeds hold:</strong> </span>Ashleigh Barty(1) vs. Petra Kvitova(7)</p><p dir="ltr"><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55"><strong>Other notable players in the quarter:</strong> </span> Belinda Bencic(9), Sloane Stephens(13), Yulia Putinseva, Zheng Saisai, Hsieh Su-Wei, Venus Williams</p><p dir="ltr"><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55">World number 1 Ashleigh Barty managed to fend of the chasing Karolina Pliskova this past week in Wuhan, reaching the semifinals of the event whilst the world no. 2 was upset in the third round. </span></p><p dir="ltr"><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55">The Aussie has been far from her best lately though, exhibiting negative body language and struggling to find her best tennis out on court. </span></p><p dir="ltr"><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55">To top it off, Barty sustained a left calf injury in her semi final defeat to Aryna Sabalenka, and comes into the tournament under fitness concerns. Perhaps a bye that’s granted to all Wuhan semifinalists can help her get things right. It's much needed as the tricky Yulia Putinseva, who pushed the Aussie to a deciding set in Madrid this year - should be waiting in the second round. If fit, Barty should prevail to a third round, where her craft should see off the slumping Sloane Stephens or crafty Zheng Saisai. </span></p><p dir="ltr"><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55">The quarterfinal matchups look a step too far for the number 1 seed though, with two-time semifinalist and one time finalist Petra Kvitova - or other dangers potentially awaiting. </span></p><p dir="ltr"><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55">Despite playing with compression on that left forearm, which has kept the Czech out of action for part of the season, she's looked in superb form in Wuhan, reaching the semifinals. Two-time titlist there, and often playing her best tennis on this continent, Kvitova opens against either Danielle Collins or Kiki Mladenovic in round 2. </span></p><p dir="ltr"><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55">However, things instantly get tough in round 3, as the likes of Giant killing Belinda Bencic should stand in her path. The Swiss has a 7-4 record against top 10 opponents on hard court this year, and has had a scintillating 2019. In their two H2H matchups this year which they've split, Bencic won the latest. After a disappointing early exit in Wuhan and locked into a tense race to Shenzhen, she's one to look out for in this quarter.</span></p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"und\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;1. 2. 3. 🌅👋🏽 &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/ChinaOpen?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;@ChinaOpen&lt;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"https://t.co/gMSmJUwrWz\"&gt;pic.twitter.com/gMSmJUwrWz&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;— Belinda Bencic (@BelindaBencic) &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/BelindaBencic/status/1177552636050100224?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;September 27, 2019&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt; &lt;script async src=\"https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;"}[/]</p><p dir="ltr"><strong><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55">Predicted semifinalist:</span></strong> Belinda Bencic(9)</p><p><br /> </p><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55"><h2 dir="ltr">Quarter 2</h2></span><p dir="ltr"><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55"><strong>Projected quarterfinal if the seeds hold</strong>:</span> Elina Svitolina(3) vs. Kiki Bertens(8)</p><p dir="ltr"><strong><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55">Other notable players in the quarter:</span></strong> Angelique Kerber(10), Sofia Kenin(15), Garbine Muguruza, Julia Görges, Dayana Yastremska, Donna Vekic, Anastasija Sevastova, Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, Veronika Kudermetova</p><p dir="ltr"><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55">Elina Svitolina has had a sensational year, climbing to a career high world no. 3 rank, whilst making back-to-back Major semifinals at Wimbledon and the US Open. Despite this, the 9-time titleist over the last two seasons has yet to show any silverware for the current campaign. Plagued by knee injuries on and off for months, the Ukranian hasn’t always found her best tennis. </span></p><p dir="ltr"><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55">Despite performing well in Wuhan, Alison Riske demolished Svitolina, who is locked into a brutal race for the final tickets to Shenzhen with Belinda Bencic and Kiki Bertens. Winning the year-ending tournament last year, qualifying again is vital, or the world no. 3 will lose a truckload of ranking points. In the first round, the 25-year old matches up against the crafty Anastasija Sevastova, who defeated her at last year’s US Open meeting. </span></p><p dir="ltr"><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55">Should Elina prevail there, a Chinese Wang will await in round 2, either Xinyu or Yafan. Plenty of dangerous players could match up with the Ukranian in the third round, with all four of Pavlyuchenkova, Kudermetova, Muguruza or Kenin having the potential to make it there. Kenin would undoubtedly be the toughest matchup, having defeated Svitolina two times on the spin within a month in Toronto and Cincinnati. </span></p><p dir="ltr"><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55">However, this is the American’s third straight week of tennis, winning Guangzhou and going deep in Wuhan. It would be tough for the 20-year old to go deep once again, and Svitolina should navigate herself to the quarterfinal. </span></p><p dir="ltr"><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55">The pressure is firmly on Kiki Bertens' shoulders right now, and she isn't handling it well. Taking a break from longtime coach Raemon Sluiter hasn't helped at all. Going 1-3 during this Asian swing, and looking completely devoid of any confidence, it’s likely that the Dutchwoman's hopes of making the year-end Championships take a crushing blow - instantly. </span></p><p dir="ltr"><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55">Donna Vekic is one of the toughest unseeded opponents one could draw, and she looks primed to oust Bertens immediately. The pathway is then filled with unseeded dangers, with high flying Dayana Yastremska likely awaiting in round 2. Fresh off a beatdown of Karolina Pliskova, the Ukrainian may well advance to the third round. There, the floundering Angelique Kerber could await, should she make it past Zhang Shuai, who eliminated her last year - and then Julia Görges. The big hitting German who showed good US Open form, looks the one to emerge from that mini section. Görges also holds a 2-0 H2H lead on both Yastremska and Svitolina, so it wouldn't surprise me if the veteran navigated through this wide open quarter. </span></p><p dir="ltr"><span>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;Find yourself someone to look up to the way this little girl looks up to Jule 😍 &lt;a href=\"https://t.co/M2E6ZvL5cV\"&gt;pic.twitter.com/M2E6ZvL5cV&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;— Jimmie48 Photography (@JJlovesTennis) &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/JJlovesTennis/status/1167240898146648064?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;August 30, 2019&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt; &lt;script async src=\"https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;"}[/]</span></p><p dir="ltr"><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55"><strong>Predicted semifinalist:</strong> Julia Görges</span></p><p><br /> </p><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55"><h2 dir="ltr">Quarter 3</h2></span><p dir="ltr"><strong><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55">Projected quarterfinal if the seeds hold:</span> </strong>Bianca Andreescu(5) vs. Naomi Osaka(4)</p><p dir="ltr"><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55"><strong>Other notable players in the quarter:</strong> </span>Madison Keys(14), Qiang Wang(14), Alison Riske, Elise Mertens, Petra Martic, Amanda Anisimova, Karolina Muchova</p><p dir="ltr"><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55">Bibi is back! After shocking the world enroute to a maiden Major title at the US Open 3 weeks ago, the Mississaugan Mammoth is back in action. Sporting a 45-4 record on the year and undefeated since March, though not world no.1 yet she is certainly the best player in the world at the moment.</span></p><p dir="ltr"><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55">Readers of our articles from the US Open know just how highly I rate the future world no. 1, and the only one who can defeat the world no. 4 right now is herself. Bianca has been so dominant enroute to her three big titles in Indian Wells, Toronto and the US Open that the pathway hasn't seemed to matter one bit. But opening up against the slumping Aliaksandra Sasnovich is certainly not an assignment the 19-year old should find all that challenging. A tough round 2 matchup against two super in-form players in Elise Mertens and Petra Martic will await, but Mertens was beaten at the US Open despite redlining her game to win the first set. </span></p><p dir="ltr"><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55">Martic has never faced Bianca, but tends to fall just short of the very elite despite all of her talent. Wimbledon standout Karolina Muchova or teenage star Amanda Anisimova would likely await in the third round. The big seed Madison Keys withdrew from Wuhan with a foot injury carried over from Osaka and looks unlikely to contend at current fitness levels. </span></p><p dir="ltr"><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55">In the other section of the draw stands Naomi Osaka. The 2018 US Open champion, 2019 Australian Open champion and former world no. 1 has struggled at times this year. Coping with the pressure and attention saw the Japanese struggle for most of the year, and was limited by a knee injury in the US Open, where Bencic beat her in the R16. </span></p><p dir="ltr"><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55">Osaka comes here in good form though, winning her home tournament by the same name without losing a set. The 21-year old will start against Jessica Pegula, to then face Jil Teichmann or a qualifier in round 2. If not too fatigued from her current final run in Wuhan, Alison Riske, who demolished Qiang Wang along the way - would await in the third round. Riske, who thrives off pace, will be an exceptionally tough matchup on these fast hard courts, and if carrying on her current form - could well defeat the Japanese star. </span></p><p dir="ltr"><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55">Osaka and Andreescu haven't faced each other yet, and it would be an incredibly interesting contest. That said, the Mississaugan Mammoth sports an 8-0 undefeated record against the top 10, and it's impossible to pick against her at this stage in the tournament. Andreescu to the semis. </span></p><p dir="ltr"><span>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "\n&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"und\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;&lt;a href=\"https://t.co/PHJdsxWnAf\"&gt;pic.twitter.com/PHJdsxWnAf&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;— Bianca (@Bandreescu_) &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/Bandreescu_/status/1173382696933953536?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;September 15, 2019&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt; &lt;script async src=\"https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;"}[/]</span></p><p dir="ltr"><strong><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55">Predicted semifinalist:</span></strong> Bianca Andreescu(5)</p><p><br /> </p><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55"><h2 dir="ltr">Quarter 4</h2></span><p dir="ltr"><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55"><strong>Projected quarterfinal if the seeds hold:</strong> </span>Simona Halep(6) vs. Karolina Pliskova(2)</p><p dir="ltr"><strong><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55">Other notable players in the quarter:</span></strong> Aryna Sabalenka(12), Caroline Wozniacki(16), Svetlana Kuznetsova(WC), Ekaterina Alexandrova, Peng Shuai(WC)</p><p dir="ltr"><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55">Simona Halep was the latest woman after Ashleigh Barty and Karolina Pliskova, to qualify for Shenzhen. A fact the Romanian will be very happy about, as she suddenly felt sharp back pain during her R16 Wuhan match against Elena Rybakina - and was forced to retire. </span></p><p dir="ltr"><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55">The pain felt different to the herniated disc that terminated Halep's 2018 season, but it is a definite cause for great concern. Celebrating her 28th birthday the day before the tournament, it's unclear which condition the world no. 5 is in, though she is still in the draw. In the event that the Romanian is fully fit, she opens against a qualifier before big hitting Ekaterina Alexandrova awaits in the second round. </span></p><p dir="ltr"><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55">The Russian pushed Halep hard in a three set loss in Cincinnati, and even in mint condition will be a tough nut to crack. In the third round, Aryna Sabalenka should await, having rediscovered her top form. Currently in the final defending her Wuhan title, the big hitting Belarussian should have firm belief she can overturn a 0-2 H2H deficit against Halep - and make the quarterfinals in back-to-back years.</span></p><p dir="ltr"><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55">The bottom section of the last quarter is spearheaded by the ever so consistent Karolina Pliskova. Off another stellar 4 title year, including the recent Zhengzhou silverware, the Czech is a force to be reckoned with - especially at the Premier Level where she often excels. Fresh off an upset loss over a big hitting youngster in Dayana Yastremska, here the world no. 2 faces another one. Former top-10 player and Roland Garros champion Jelena Ostapenko is truly the model of inconsistency however, and in dire form to boot, and Pliskova shouldn't be troubled. </span></p><p dir="ltr"><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55">In the second round Katerina Siniakova awaits should she overcome the spirited young wild card Wang Xiyu. While neither of those matches should threaten Pliskova much, Caroline Wozniacki may well do. Though the pair have split their last 4 meetings, the Dane leads the way 6-4, and is the reigning champion of this event. Making the last 16 or better on four straight occasions, and one of only two player to hoist the trophy more than once in the Premier Mandatory era - it'll be a tough contest. Wozniacki hasn't been in great form this year however, and barely played due to fitness problems. </span></p><p dir="ltr"><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55">Pliskova should find a way through. With Simona Halep likely in poor physical condition, the pathway opens up for a resurgent Sabalenka. Even if the Romanian were fit, the Belarussian isn't one you want to step in front of when in a rich vein of form like now. In a matchup against Pliskova that pits overwhelming power against more of the same, Sabalenka has been the one to come out on top. Winning both H2H meetings in three sets, a late season surge looks in the making for the Belarussian.</span></p><p dir="ltr"><span>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;I feel seen…😅 &lt;a href=\"https://t.co/S5QW9sj9VY\"&gt;pic.twitter.com/S5QW9sj9VY&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;— Jimmie48 Photography (@JJlovesTennis) &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/JJlovesTennis/status/1176172785565077512?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;September 23, 2019&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt; &lt;script async src=\"https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;"}[/]</span></p><p dir="ltr"><strong><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55">Predicted semifinalist: </span></strong>Aryna Sabalenka(12)</p><p> </p><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55"><h2 dir="ltr">The Verdict</h2></span><p dir="ltr"><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55">With Ashleigh Barty both unfit and in questionable form right now, she is a prime candidate to oppose. The likliest challengers for the world no. 1 are Petra Kvitova and Belinda Bencic. However, with Bencic's Giant killing tendencies, and the fact that she's twice the price of the Czech to win the quarter - she is our first selection to do just that at 8.0. </span></p><p dir="ltr"><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55">Looking at the second quarter, with two floundering big seeds in Kerber and Bertens, the draw suddenly becomes wide open. Julia Görges impressed at the US Open, and was a match point on serve away from the quarterfinals, before succumbing to Donna Vekic. </span></p><p dir="ltr"><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55">Though the German has historically done poorly in this part of the world, she did make the last 16 here last year. In an exploitable part of the section with plenty of preparation, the veteran could go well here. With positive H2H records against both Svitolina and Yastremska, along with being the highest priced option of the longer shots - Görges makes appeal to win the quarter at 15.0. </span></p><p dir="ltr"><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55">In the third quarter, there is simply no looking past Bianca Andreescu. She has the complete game, both technically, physically and mentally - to be the best player in the world. Off a few weeks rest after the US Open, and in great physical and mental shape, she is the clear selection to not only win her quarter - but to win outright. At prices of 3.25 and 8.0, those two selections appeal. Looking at the last quarter, Aryna Sabalenka is certainly not one to step in front of right now in this scintillating form. Coming in off a bye along with a quite likely to be unfit Halep enroute to the quarterfinal, I favor the Belarussian to make the semifinals. </span></p><p dir="ltr"><span id="docs-internal-guid-5d738839-7fff-ea99-2076-442238e5ee55">Again, there were so many things to go into, but too little time (and space).
