Since the WTA Tour is coming off two Premier events in the last two weeks, Lyon hasn’t drawn a particularly good list of entrants.
On the other hand, this cracks the tournament wide open, as it evens out the field of players.
2020 Record: 10-4, 1 title
2020 Prize Money: $2,940,393
Kenin is the only top 20 player in the field, and naturally has a big advantage over the competition.
The reigning Australian Open champion is coming off an early exit at the Dubai Championships after a first-round loss to Elena Rybakina.
Although Kenin lost two of her three matches played since the Australian Open title, the American star remains the best possible pick for this week.
She has also been impressive when it comes to title deciders, winning four of her five final appearances last year.
Kenin has just reached the top 5 for the first time.
2020 Record: 3-4, 0 titles
2020 Prize Money: $98,314
Van Uytvanck has a perfect 4-0 record in four career finals, all on fast surfaces.
The Belgian’s best result this year came at the St. Petersburg Ladies Trophy, with a second-round exit.
She won two trophies in 2019, successfully defending her title at the Budapest Open while also adding the Tashkent Open.
Her most recent WTA Tour event was the Dubai Championships, although she failed to make it out of qualifying.
It’s worth noting that Van Uytvanck has a 2-1 record against Kenin as well.
2020 Record: 7-4, 0 titles
2020 Prize Money: $119,040
One of the most experienced players in the field, Cornet has made it to the second round in all her four appearances this year.
While the veteran French player is more of a clay specialist, she does have a record on hard courts.
Cornet has five finals on the hard surface, with two titles.
She already has wins over Van Uytvanck, Petra Martic and former French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko in 2020.
2020 Record: 2-4, 0 titles
2020 Prize Money: $113,325
The third-highest ranked player in the field, Garcia has been trying to reclaim some of her past success.
A two-time Premier champion, the French player has two titles in the last three years.
The hometown factor could also play a role here.
Garcia is also a specialist on faster surfaces, with five of her seven career titles coming on hard and grass courts.
2020 Record: 4-5, 0 titles
2020 Prize Money: $84,153
A former top 10 player, Kasatkina had an unexpected drop in 2019.
The young Russian has already shown flashes of brilliance but is currently struggling to regain her old form.
Competing in a slightly weaker field this week, however, should boost her chances of a good result.
Kasatkina has five career finals, all at the Premier level, with two titles.
A hard-court specialist, the Russian could also use the surface in Lyon to her advantage.
The odds for the winner of the Lyon Open Women’s Singles will be posted as soon as they become available, and are provided by DraftKings Sportsbook.
