The sand swing after Wimbledon returns to the WTA Tour with the Ladies Open Lausanne from July 11th to 17th. Despite being placed outside of the European clay-court season, the WTA 250 tournament has managed to attract some of the sport’s top names.
World No. 8 and Australian Open runner-up Danielle Collins is leading the field, with home hope Belinda Bencic second seed. Both were eliminated in the first round of the Wimbledon Championships and want to get back on track at this Swiss tournament.
Irina-Camelia Begu and Sara Sorribes Tormo are seeded in third and fourth place respectively. Both have the game to make it deep into the draw.
Meanwhile, defending champion Tamara Zidansek is the seventh seed. The Roland Garros 2021 semi-finalist abandoned her campaign in Paris in the third round this year and will look to make the most of the rest of the clay swing in Lausanne.
There are also a handful of talented players in the draw who have had a sensational season on grass. Jule Niemeier and Tatjana Maria, who were involved in an all-German Wimbledon quarterfinal this week, are hoping to continue their momentum on a different surface. The two are in opposite halves of the draw at the Ladies Open and will not be able to meet before the final.
French Open doubles champion Caroline Garcia won the title in Bad Homburg in the run-up to the grass-court major before being eliminated in the fourth round at SW19. The 28-year-old definitely wants to continue her promotion in Lausanne.
Rising star Anastasia Potapova is another player who has the potential to beat some top names out of the 28-player field.
