World No. 37 Ekaterina Alexandrova moved into the second round after her first-round opponent, the in-form Ons Jabeur retired while trailing 6-1, 1-0.

After both players held on to win their first service games, the Russian began dominating the contest and won five games in a row to wrap up the set. The in-form Tunisian had taken a 0-40 lead  in the fifth game of the set, but Alexandrova still managed to hold serve, saving four break points in that game.

Down a set and 1-0 in the second, the fifth seed Jabeur eventually retired with an elbow injury.

Anhelina Kalinina began her challenge by taking out the 2018 Kremlin Cup champion Daria Kasatkina in the first round on Monday.

The Ukrainian converted 8 of 15 break. point chances and converted 5 of 9 as she ousted Kasatkina 6-2, 6-3 in one hour and 23 minutes.
