Last season's final:
Elena Dementieva RUS  beat Vera Zvonareva RUS  | 6-3 6-3
1. Klara Koukalova CZE 
2. Lucie Safarova CZE 
3. Iveta Benesova CZE 
4. Marta Domachowska POL 
The top half saw a huge surprise as top seed Klara Koukalova lost to youngster Tszvetana Pironkova. Koukalova took the first set, but saw her opponent come back strongly after that. Pironkova next faces Katerina Bondarenko. Another loss in this half was for eight seed Samantha Stosur, who lost to Anastasia Yakimova. There were easy wins for Sesil Karantantcheva and Lucie Safarova though, the latter only dropping two games en route to round two.
In the bottom half fourth seed Virginie Razzano was far from happy. She took only two games against local player Alina Jidkova, who next faces Ukraine's Viktoriya Kutuzova, who only gave away one game to her compatriot Olga Savchuk. The other seeds in this half were all easy winners, among them Iveta Benesova and Marta Domachowska. Katarina Srebotnik was taken to a third set by Emma Laine, but finally came through and now faces another tough test with local player Ekaterina Bychkova.
It's up to you decide who wins what by voting for your favourite in each match!
