A 56-player draw means `eight first-round byes. But it also means even a seeded player needs to win five matches to take the tournament.

And so, whose who aren’t playing on Tuesday will have to win five matches in five days if they want to take the title.

That does give an edge to No. 2 Garbiñe Muguruza, No. 6 Ons Jabeur and No. 7 Elise Mertens, who all got into action Tuesday and thus got a bit of a leg up.

Their potential quarterfinal opponents (No. 8 Andreescu, No. 1 Svitolina and No. 4 Pavlyuchenkova), will have go run the table.
