I'm just freaking curious if Cibulkova learned anything from his loss against Azarenka. Hope she'll capitalise on her form and win this tourney. If not her, then Goerges. It'd be a shame if none of them take the trophey.

5 of my faves are seeds

That doesn't usually happen

I predict a totally unseeded quarterfinal line-up

Re: Seeds of 220K Barcelona Ladies Open (not all [WC]s awarded yet)

After Flavia Pennetta recieved a [WC] – she is eligible for Top 20 WC – I updated the opener.

As a matter of curiosity: The tournament awarded a [WC] to Garbińe Muguruza, who sidelined Flavia at Sony Ericson Open, earlier.
