Women’s singles draw analysis, preview & prediction

The 2022 Adelaide International, to be held from January 3-9, kicks off the new season of the WTA tour. The WTA 500 event lost a little bit of star power as Garbine Muguruza, Barbora Krejcikova and Karolina Pliskova, among others, have withdrawn from the tournament. However, the tournament will still feature many talented players, including five of the current top 10.

World No. 1 Ashleigh Barty leads the Adelaide International field as the top seed. World No. 2 Aryna Sabalenka, 2021 US Open and Roland Garros semifinalist Maria Sakkari and 2021 Indian Wells champion Paula Badosa round out the top four seeds. Iga Swiatek, the defending champion, is seeded fifth.

On that note, here’s an in-depth look at how the draw might unfold:
