WTA Jurmala players 2019

Local fans are in for a treat at the first ever Baltic Open as Latvian stars Anastasija Sevastova and Jelena Ostapenko headline the tournament in Jurmala.

Ostapenko may have tumbled down the rankings over the last 12 months after winning her maiden Grand Slam title in such stunning fashion at the French Open in 2017, but she remains as dangerous as anyone on tour when firing - and she will be determined to leave a good impression in front of her home fans in Jurmala.

Down to No. 79 in the world, Ostapenko hasn’t won a title since Roland Garros over two years ago - can she find her best tennis in her home country this week?

One player that has been a model of consistency over the last few years is Sevastova, who is currently ranked No. 11 in the world. Since returning to the sport in 2015 after a brief retirement, Sevastova has been a constant presence in the top 20 and reached her maiden Grand Slam semi-final at the U.S. Open last year. A three-time WTA champion, Sevastova is the top seed in Jurmala and starts the big favourite for the title.

Apart from the Latvian contingent, there’s some other big names in the first Jurmala tournament, including former top five player Caroline Garcia, who is also trying to recapture her best tennis after dropping out of the top 20 earlier this season.

Other players to watch out for throughout the week include Katerina Siniakova, Anastasia Potapova, Aliaksandra Sasnovich and recently-crowned Bucharest champion Elena Rybakina.

“The tournament will be organised by sports marketing agency ONE SGM and will take place from 22nd till 28th of July 2019 at the National Tennis Centre Lielupe on the Baltic seaside.

This summer all tennis lovers will have a unique opportunity to witness WTA stars in the game at Baltic Open tournament in a magnificent resort city of Jurmala.”

Latvia has experienced a boom in tennis stars over the last decade or so, with Jelena Ostapenko becoming the first player from the country to win a Grand Slam title when she prevailed at Roland Garros in 2017, while Anastasija Sevastova is currently the highest-ranked player at No. 11. Both players will headline the 2019 Baltic Open.
