Sixth-seeded Zheng will frace Osaka for the third time overall – the pair have split those meetings with Osaka coming through a three-setter in San Jose in 2022.

Coco Gauff takes her spot at the top of the draw, with Aryna Sabalenka seeded No.2 and Elena Rybakina seeded third.

The top four seeds get byes in Berlin.

Here are the potential quarterfinal matchups if the seeds hold:

[1] Gauff v Jabeur [8]
[4] Pegula v Zheng [6]
[7] Sakkari v Rybakina [3]
[5] Vondrousova v Sabalenka [2]
