The WTA website wrote about Daria Kasatkina: "By common consensus, Daria Kasatkina is the next big thing in Russian tennis, drawing comparisons with none other than Maria Sharapova during her recent run to the semifinals at her home event, the Kremlin Cup. Softly spoken, but with a steely determination reminiscent of her celebrated compatriot, Kasatkina enjoyed a distinguished junior career, lifting the Roland Garros crown at 17, and announced herself in the senior ranks by reaching the US Open third round this August. A quarterfinal in Bad Gasten, and a string of titles on the ITF Circuit, further aided a charge up the rankings that saw her finish a year she started outside the Top 300 perched handily at No.71."
