Quite a draw.... Pliskova vs Rybarikova, but also Konta vs Kvitova and Muguruza vs Pavlyuchenkova...

And on top of that: Svitolina against one of the Nottngham semi-finalists....

If it was the objective to lose all top4 seeds in R1, then they may achieve that with this draw.

I don't like the draw system in general.
For a 32-seed draw, R1 should oppose top-16 to the rest.
Here at least we avoided Q vs Q or Q vs WC. I hate to those kinds of match-ups.

Pliskova lost inevitably. I thought she was going to take time off after her unhappy RG?

@ Grossefavourite:
 then why didn't you pick her as fmKO in the PGame? (no one did, by the way...)

Julia Gorgeous stops Barty. Scores looks tight.
That would have been the match to watch, if I were home.
