The seeds for the 2019 edition of Charleston Open are:
Rated as a Premier WTA event, the Charleston tournament is one of the few clay tournaments taking place in the USA. It is contested on green clay at the Family Circle Tennis Center. In 2019, the top seeded player is Sloane Stephens, who is hoping to make a good performance after a quite poor start of season. Aside from a last-16 appearance at the Australian Open, Sloane didn’t show any notable performances this year. She lost in the third round in Miami and was also sent out in the second round in Indian Wells. She’s a good clay player (last year’s final at Roland Garros proves it) but she’s just out of shape.
The second seed is Kiki Bertens, who is also the defending champion. Not really a clay specialist, Kiki is in a better form than Stephens, already winning a title in St Petersburg this year. She’s got pretty good chances at defending her title.
Aryna Sabalenka comes third. The Belarusian player is a strong candidate for the trophy, however, her form this season was not as good as last year’s. Also, she is not very comfortable playing on clay courts.
