But surprising this gab from 17 - 30...
Safarova, Lucie (CZE) No. 17
Lepchenko, Varvara (USA) No.21
Paszek, Tamira S (AUT) No.30
I guess many realising with the 8th seed being number 10....they want some matches so go to auckland instead of drawing a top 10 player in round one....just my guess....
Interesting to see what the qualy cut offs are like around the place!!
