The WTA season has been hugely impacted by the COVID-19 Pandemic but the Linz Open is still taking place and it is a chance for some of the elite players to finish their season with a title. Elise Mertens is set to play at this tournament with the Belgian superstar beginning her tournament against Anhelina Kalinina from Ukraine. 

Anhelina Kalinina enters this match via the qualifying process where she won both of her matches with some ease. This is a big tournament for Kalinina as she is not commonly featured on the WTA full tour and this is a big opportunity for her to make an impact against some of the elite players on the tour. That being said, this is expected to be a tough match for Anhelina Kalinina as she is playing against the number 2 seed in the opening round. 

On the other side of the coin, Elise Mertens enters this match having last played at the Ostrava Open where she won the doubles tournament and made the quarterfinals of the singles tournament. It has been a solid season for Elise Mertens with her major highlight taking place at the US Open where she defeated Sofia Kenin to make the quarterfinals. With many of the big names not playing this tournament, this is a good chance for Elise Mertens to make a huge impact and challenge for the title. 

This will be the first time that Anhelina Kalinina and Elise Mertens will be playing each other at a WTA event.
