Monday draw? This is going to be a good final event. I want to know about attendance and how much coverage it gets in local media compared to other sports

I know the coverage in Denmark, there's NONE! <img src="https://i.imgur.com/m73r2hV.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Embarrassment" class="inlineimg" />
Same here in the States. Thank God for WTA TV. Fortunately WTA is coming back to tennis channel.

My initial reaction was, wow Wang, Keys, and Kasatkina, what a brutal group!

In all fairness, they all look tough! Excited for this event.

I love how group Orchid is literally the group of death :hysteric: Anyone could win the title :hysteric:

In the first group I think it will be Wang, then Sevstova, probably Aryna but maybe Garcia and hopefully Goerges, she likes these types of players on this surface :)

More matches tomorrow! Can't wait! I think I would like to see Kontaveit beat Gorges and Keys beat Dasha, this would really mix it up and would be anyone's opportunity.
Obviously, it would be great for Wang if Keys can win 2-1 against Kasatkina. I'm still hoping!
