The Free Press Journal - - SPORTS -

DOHA: De­spite the loss of world num­ber one Naomi Osaka through in­jury, six of the women's top 10 play­ers de­scend on Doha this week for the Qatar Open. Aus­tralian Open cham­pion, and the sport's new su­per­star, Osaka with­drew last week due to a back in­jury, leav­ing a big hole to fill for tour­na­ment or­gan­is­ers, which they have done with a strong field in­clud­ing three for­mer world num­ber ones. Si­mona Halep is now the top seed and the Ro­ma­nian will be joined by the Czech Repub­lic's Karolina Pliskova and Ger­many's An­gelique Ker­ber as the top seeds.
