WTA Week Ahead: Bad Gastein, Portoroz

Posted by gauloises1 on July 19, 2010

Less mental confusion for the ladies, who are dividing their energies between clay and hard courts, but staying firmly rooted in Europe. Despite this, various websites are referring to them as ‘beginning their US Open campaign’. Taking a hell of a run-up if that’s the case, I’m just saying.

Bad Gastein

Amazing to think there was a time when I didn’t know who Andrea Petkovic was. And yet I have no memory of this event whatsoever, so there’s the proof.

Draw here.

Top seeds: Andrea Petkovic, Timea Bacsinszky, Anabel Medina Garrigues, Klara Zakopalova, Sybille Bammer, Barbora Zahlalova Strycova, Tathiana Garbin, Anastasija Sevastova

Big Question of the Week: how did Timea Bacsinszky get seeded ahead of Medina Garrigues?

Portoroz

Oh, Dinara.

Draw here.

Top seeds: Jelena Jankovic, Petra Kvitova, Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, Sara Errani, Dominika Cibulkova, Vera Dushevina, Polona Hercog, Sofia Arvidsson

Big Question of the Week: Just how much is Portoroz paying these women in appearance fees?

    I knew her!!! 😛 She also made the semi’s of Istanbul the following week….losing to Hradecka in a tight one if memory serves *Jackomoment*

    AMG has also had a pretty shitty season acctually….while Timea (fear of spelling her surname) has had a relatively good one…

    Actually, Portoroz is on hardcourt.

    Did you see Petkovic is blogging for the WTA this week? I’ve become quite a fan of hers, even though I think I’ve seen her play in all of about two matches. Love her personality!
