WTA Bucharest - Draw: Sevastova, Suarez Navarro aim to win the title- View: 859 by Gatto Luigi
The defending finalist Anastasija Sevastova is the main favourite in the Romanian event where the defending champion Simona Halep won't play. The Latvian player, who bids to win her third title after 2010 Estoril and 2017 Mallorca, won't have an easy first match as she faces Jana Cepelova.
In an eventual second round Sevastova would play against Alexandrova or Kovinic, in the quarter-finals the home favourite player Sorana Cirstea. In the semifinals Sevastova would face Julia Goerges or Elise Mertens. In the bottom half of the draw the second seeded player Carla Suarez Navarro faces Annika Beck in her first round match.
In the second round Susrez would face Ruse or Shinikova, in the quarter-finals Tatjana Maria. Semifinals against Begu or Niculescu. The 2017 season hasn't been particularly good for Navarro, who suffered several injures and dropped to the 34th spot in the WTA Rankings.
