Not many points on offer here so Anna needs to go deep into this tourny to make it worthwhile swapping Luxembourg for this.

You'd be forgiven for thinking so looking at the player profiles. Lourdes Dominguez Lino is on twice and Anna's profile comes up if you click on the first Lourdes. Her name was actually on the other day with a picture of Martina Hingis above it.

Anna's draw looks very nice to me. She has a big opportunity here.

Here's the situation points-wise at Guangzhou (Tier III $175k).

1st round......1
2nd round.....16
Quarterfinal..30
Semifinal.....55
Runner-up.....85
Winner.......120


This week Anna is defending 25 points which she won at Luxembourg last year. This means she has to reach at least the QFs (and she really should). As of Monday she needs an extra 150 points to reach the Top 20 and she has to get them before the Aussie Open as she has nothing more to defend until then. A good run here will certainly help her cause.

First round is wildcard Shuai Zhang who has won several $10k and $25k hardcourt events in Asia this year. However the majority of her opponents in those events were ranked 300 and below so playing Anna should be a new experience for her.

Wow, that sucks pretty bad! Chen and Song are ranked outside 500 in doubles.

Chaky and Lena have to do well in singles now to make up for it.
