Last week in Madrid, Aryna Sabalenka failed to defend her points for the 2021 title. Immediately there was a drop in the rankings. As of today, Aryna is only the eighth racket in the world. In Rome, she needs to defend the 1/8 finals, in case of another failure the tennis player risks leaving the top 10.

It should be noted that right after Madrid’s defeat from Anisimova (2-6, 6-3, 4-6), Sabalenka came to Rome and is now in the Italian capital to prepare for the tournament. Clearly, her motivation is very high.
Zhang Shuai has not shone on the clay throughout her long career. Interestingly, she now has exactly 86 wins and the same number of losses on this surface.
