Anastasia Gasanova and Astra Sharma are scheduled to face each other in the first round of the 2022 WTA Korea Open on Tuesday, September 20.
Last week, she defeated top seed Alison Riske in the first round of the Chennai Open, but she couldn’t advance past the second round, falling to Katie Swan. Anastasia Gasanova could face the top seed of the Korea Open in the next round this week. If Gasanova wins her opener, she could face No. 1 seed Jelena Ostapenko in the second round. The 23-year-old Russian has had a difficult season, with a 16-21 record entering the tournament. In 2022, she is 7-12 on hard courts, with the majority of her seven victories coming at the ITF in Bronx, where she advanced from the qualifiers to the quarterfinals.
206th in the world Astra Sharma breezed past her two qualifying opponents to make her first appearance in the main draw in Seoul. In the first qualifying round, the Australian defeated South Korean Son Ha Yoon 6-0, 6-1, and then defeated Russia’s Ekaterina Kazionova 6-1, 6-0 in the second qualifier. Sharma has a season record of 16-22 overall and 8-14 on hard court. This year has been difficult for the 27-year-old. She won her first WTA title in Charleston last year and broke into the top 100 in the world. She reached a career-high ranking of 84 this year, but has since fallen steadily in the rankings.
Anastasia Gasanova and Astra Sharma are scheduled to face each other in the first round of the 2022 WTA Korea Open on Tuesday, September 20. The tournament is scheduled to begin on September 19 and end on September 25.
