Anett Kontaveit continues her fine form on Hardcourts as she defeats Katerina Siniakova 6-3, 6-3 in a routine win. A quarter-finalist at the 2018 Kremlin Cup, Anett’s first-round victory has definitely justified why is she a title contender this week in the Russian capital. Kontaveit last played at the 2021 Indian Wells where her run ended in the quarter-finals.

Participating in the main-draw of the Kremlin Cup for the first time since 2010, Petkovic had the backing of her stars as her round 1 opponent Jelena Ostapenko had to retire mid-match in the 3rd set when the score was 2-6, 6-0, 2-0 with Petkovic with the lead in the 3rd set. Petkovic faced a first-round defeat at the Indian Wells, her last tournament before coming to Moscow.
