Intrigue: Will Tim be able to win the title after a long hiatus?

It seems that the former third racket in the world and US Open champion – 2020 Dominic Thiem is slowly coming out of the crisis. At the home tournament in Kitzbühel, the Earth Prince, as he was once called, reached the first final in three years. Will the Austrian be able to face a difficult opponent -the Argentine Sebastián Báez, whom he already lost in the Bostad-2022 quarterfinals- and win the long-awaited title after a long pause?

Intrigue: Will Pegula reach the final at home?

The top seed of the tournament in Washington, Jessica Pegula of the United States, is racing towards the final of this local event. In the semifinal, her opponent was the well-known Maria Sakkari from Greece. This will be the eighth meeting of the tennis players in the main draws of the WTA, and the score is still 4-3 in favor of the Greek, but the only meeting this season – in the semifinals in Doha – was left only for Pegula.

Mystery: Will Samsonova be able to beat Gauff for the first time?

Lyudmila Samsonova is making good progress in the 500 field in Washington, where she is the reigning champion. En route to the semifinals, the 24-year-old Russian faced American Danielle Collins, Romanian Sorana Kirstey and Ukrainian Marta Kostyuk in straight sets. Now, for the first time, Lyudmila will have to face her opponent, top seed Cory Gauff of the USA (3). The girls have met twice before, and in both cases, Gauff won, in the Linz-2019 qualifying and in Charleston-2021. By the way, after her first victory in Austria, 15-year-old Corey reached the base of the tournament in the status of a lucky loser, and then won her first WTA title. Can Samsonova soak up the head-to-head score and continue on her way to defending her title?
