PYW Zürich - Second Round | Please Vote!

PYW Zürich

Welcome to Zürich, Switzerland! The last year of Zürich has arrived. Although it has been downgraded, the field looks strong nontheless. Defending champion Tatiana Golovin passes, due to an injury. Last year's runner-up Jelena Jankovic and 2006 champion Daniela Hantuchova are among the favourites. Even the first qualifying round contains a blockbuster when this year's two times titlist Jie Zheng takes on US Openn runner-up Anna-Lena Grönefeld. But who will prevail eventually? Vote now as the Zürich Open continues with the main draw!
