Cincinnati (USA) – Runner-up at the WTA 1000 in Toronto last Sunday, Beatriz Haddad Maia will debut this Tuesday at the WTA 1000 in Cincinnati. Now occupying the 16th place in the world ranking, the number 1 in Brazil faces the Latvian Jelena Ostapenko. They play in the fourth game of court 4, around 17:00 (Brasília time).

Bia seeks an unprecedented victory against Ostapenko in the circuit. The Latvian, currently ranked 15th, won the final in Seoul in 2017 and also got the better of them when they faced each other in Miami the following year.

Another attraction of the round is the generational duel between Serena Williams and Emma Raducanu. While the American is in farewell rhythm after announcing her retirement last week, the 19-year-old Brit will try to defend the US Open title she won last season. When Raducanu was born in November 2002, Serena was already number 1 in the world and had four Grand Slam titles.

The day will also feature debuts for names like Naomi Osaka, Daniil Medvedev, Carlos Alcaraz and Nick Kyrgios.
