Lithuanians: Lina Stanciute , Aurelija Miseviciute , Edita Liachoviciute , Egle Petrauskaite.
Latvians: Anzela Zguna , Liga Dekmeijere, Irina Kuzmina.
Estonians: Maret Ani , Kaia Kanepi, Margit Ruutel, Ilona Poljakova.

Kaia lost, but Anna-Lena is rising star...

Hopefully Maret will perform better in doubles, she is ranked around 80 after all!
