Welcome to Cincinnati, USA! Right in the thick of the US Open Series, stars have gathered in this midwest city hoping to snag one of the biggest titles of the year. Unfortunately, Victoria Azarenka and Maria Kirilenko will be unable to defend their title after the Belorussian sustained a right hand injury in Toronto last week. Kirilenko is still playing though, with her compatriot Nadia Petrova instead, and they will be the fourth seeds this week. Meanwhile, top seeds Kveta Peschke and Katarina Srebotnik have had a fantastic year in 2011 and hope to add to their collection here, but will meet stiff resistance from other teams, including the third-seeded of Vania King and Yaroslava Shvedova, who are certainly not strangers to PYW doubles success, as well as second seeds Gisela Dulko and Flavia Pennetta, who recently reunited after the Argentine had been sidelined with an injury, and have also enjoyed their share of success in these events. Another notable team to watch could be Raquel Kops-Jones and Abigail Spears as they recently took home the PYW doubles title in Carlsbad. However, these teams and many more will be challenging the field this week, so competition will be fierce. Vote now as the tournament begins!!!
