Austria’s only entry in the main competition of the Upper Austria Ladies, which is worth $922,573, will be the French Clara Burel (WTA 52nd from Monday). Kraus improved thanks to her ITF semi-final in Porto and, as number 185, will still be an outsider.

Top star Jelena Ostapenko from Latvia, who lost in the women’s doubles final of the Australian Open alongside Ljudmila Kitschenok (UKR) on Sunday, has a bye in the first round. Former world number one Angelique Kerber will face Italian Lucia Bronzetti in her European comeback, which is scheduled for Tuesday.

Number two in the tournament behind Ostapenko is Yekaterina Alexandrova from Russia, who also has a bye at the start. However, Elina Switolina from Ukraine, who was injured at the Australian Open and was unable to get fit in time, had to cancel.

The two Austrian qualifiers, who were already in action at the Design Center on Saturday, have already been eliminated after clear defeats. Arabella Koller didn’t play a game at all against the Russian Erika Andrejewa (WTA 113th), Tamara Kostic held her own better against the talented Dane Clara Tauson at 2:6,2:6.
