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.
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.
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?
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?
