A 20 éves orosz Alekszandra Gorjacskina a világbajnok-jelölti döntő győztese, Ju Wenjun kihívója

Kazanyban a 20 éves orosz Alekszandra Gorjacskinát két fordulóval a világbajnok-jelölti döntő befejezése előtt már győztesként ünnepelhették. Elsőségével kivívta a jogot, hogy a kínai Ju Wenjunnal a világbajnoki címért megmérkőzhet. A rajtlistán ötödik nagymesternő a kínai exvilágbajnoknő Hou Ji-fan visszalépésének köszönhetően kapott meghívást.

A pihenőnap után vasárnap játsszák a 13. fordulót.

I played all games without thinking of the tournament situation and will do the same in the two remaining games,” #FIDEWomenCandidates winner Aleksandra Goryachkina.
