PYW - Luxembourg | First Round | Please vote!

PYW Luxembourg



This week promises to be even more crowded than last week, with events being held in Luxembourg, Luxembourg; Guangzhou, China; Seoul, South Korea; Ashland, USA; Biella, Italy and Batumi, Georgia.

The Fortis Championships of Luxembourg is the largest of the events. Last year Silvia Farina Elia took the title by beating Shinobu Asagoe in the final. Who will win this year?


Quote:
Season 1 Final:

Silvia Farina Elia ITA [3]
beat Shinobu Asagoe JPN [8] 6-4 2-6 6-4
Quote:
Tournament Points:

W - 195
F - 137
SF - 88
QF - 49
R16 - 25
R32 - 5
Qualifier - 10
Q3 - 5
Q2 - 2
Q1 - 1

* If a qualifier loses in the first round, she receives no first round points as usual.


The Top Favourites:



1. Kim Clijsters BEL



2. Daniela Hantuchova SVK



3. Patty Schnyder SUI


4. Anna-Lena Grönefeld GER

It's the beginning of the end... of the season that is. The first major European indoor tournament is ready to kick off and has collected some huge names of PYW to star its field.

First star comes from Belgium. PYW #1 and recent US Open Champion Kim Clijsters has but a mere 88 points to defend untill next March. The first seed is ofcourse eager to hold on to that magnificent number one place, but will have a though time holding it, with all the talent on the PYW Tour.

Someone who did succeed holding that top place for an astonishing 51 weeks is Daniela Hantuchova. The Slovak 5th seed is also playing her first event since New York and is looking for a 7th title.

Closing out the line of top favourites are Patty Schnyder and Anna-Lena Grönefeld. The latter of the two has won a title and a semi final in her last two tournaments. Patty Schnyder however isn't that consistent, but it would be foolish to count her out.

Seeing that this is a tourney in Luxembourg, there has to be atleast one native player. And that is Anne Kremer, who was rewarded with a wildcard. Two other home players lost in the quallies. Something we can't say of Michaëlla Krajicek: the Dutchwoman had a nagging injury for the last two months, but stormed through the qualifying draw in no time. Will Roberta Vinci be her next victim?

First Round:

Kim Clijsters BEL [1] has a bye
Klara Koukalova CZE vs Iveta Benesova CZE
Kirsten Flipkens BEL [Q] vs Virginie Razzano FRA
Lisa Raymond USA [WC] vs Francesca Schiavone ITA [6]

Nathalie Dechy FRA [4] has a bye

Dally Randriantefy MAD vs Michaela Pastikova CZE [Q]
Magdalena Maleeva BUL [WC] vs Anna Chakvetadze RUS
Anabel Medina Garrigues ESP vs Daniela Hantuchova SVK [5]

Dinara Safina RUS [7] vs Anne Kremer LUX [WC]
Jarmila Gajdosova SVK [Q] vs Katarina Srebotnik SLO
Michaëlla Krajicek NED [Q] vs Roberta Vinci ITA
Patty Schnyder SUI [3] has a bye

Silvia Farina Elia ITA [8]
vs Anna Smashnova ISR
Eleni Daniilidou GRI vs Anna-Lena Grönefeld GER
Samantha Stosur AUS vs Kveta Peschke CZE
Nadia Petrova RUS [2] has a bye

I know I've been a liar
And I know I've been a fool
I hope we didn't break it
But I'm glad we broke the rules
My cave is deep now
Yet your light is shining through
I cover my eyes
Still all I see is you

Mine too! I really didn't know who to vote. Maybe I shouldn't have voted at all.
