The Kremlin Cup is an indoor hard court tournament in Moscow, Russia. This year s event will be the 20th edition on the ladies' side. The total prize money of the event is $1,000,000 which is a little bit less than what the ATP players will collectively earn, but the difference is really nothing enormous (as of now, we are talking about around $80,000).
The defending champion of the tournament is Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova who won't compete at this year's event. World number six Agnieszka Radwanska and world number nine Angelique Kerber would have been in the main draw, but they also chose to not compete leaving the talent pool a little bit depleted. Still, there will be two top 10 players in attendance, world number seven Lucie Safarova and fresh US Open winner, world number eight Flavia Pennetta. If not these two, world number 13 Carla Suarez Navarro or world number 15 Karolina Pliskova could also have a solid chance going all the way, not to mention world number 25 Irina-Camelia Begu or world number 26 Anna Karolina Schmiedlova who will be the last, eighth seed in the main draw. Each and every one of these players could win the tournament, but the main favorites are certainly the 2nd and 3rd seeds, if not else, because of their mental fortitude.
Outside of them, Pliskova certainly has the talent to defeat anybody in that main draw including the multiple WTA titlists and the now Grand Slam winner Italian.
