My comments:

Alona BONDARENKO: Breakthrough week for Alona who captured her 1rst WTA tour title last week at Luxembourg Tier II. She ousted 8th seed/n18 Pierce en route and 5th seed/n14 Schiavone in final. She's up 29 spots and she's breaking the Top 40.

Olga POUTCHKOVA: Olga keeps rising in the world ranking week after week. She's up 7 places this week after reaching the QF at Guangzhou Tier III upsetting n50 Kostanic en route -(dropping on ly 2 games) before falling to 3rd seed/n26 and eventual winner compatriot Chakvetadze.

Agniska RADWANSKA: She's definitively one of the revelation of the year. That teenage was only ranked n315 at the end of last year and she's already breaking the Top 70! Last wek, she was Semi finalist at Luxembourg Tier II as a qualifer! She ousted former n1 Venus Willimas and Top seed/n6 Dementieva en route before losing to 5th seed/n14 Schiavone in 3 sets.

Aleksandra WOZNIAK: Last week , Aleksandra won her 2nd ITF title of the year at Ashland $50K upsetting Top seed/n67 en route. She's now 3 spots from the Top 100.

Karin KNAPP: Step by step, Karin is starting to make her reputation on the tour. Last week, she bravely competed at Luxembourg Tier II reacheing the 2nd rd as a qualifer. In the qualies, she ousted 8th seed/n81 Bychkova. After qualifying, she performed her ever best victory over 7th seed/n17 Groenefeld before losing to n73 and eventual semi finalist Peschke.

Simona MATEI: Simona won her 2nd ITF title of the year at Lecce $25K ousting top seed/n129 Nagy en route. She also reached the 2nd rd at Biella $50K upsetting n150 Chakhnashvili before losing to top seed/n46 Oprandi.

Tatjana MALEK: Tatjna is breaking the Top 150 this week after qualifying at Luxembourg Tier II. In the qualies, she ousted french rising star 2nd seed/n60 Rezai and 6th seed/n68 sucha before falling to another qualifer in the main draw n100 Vinci.

Shiho HISAMATSU: That double handed both sides player reached her ever best ranking this week after 2 good results.First she won Ibaraki $25K 2 weeks ago, andshe also made it to the SF at Tokyo Challenger $50K last week where she ousted 3rd seed/n181 Fuda before losing to Top seed/n138 Chan in 3 sets.

Ayumi MORITA: That promising teenager is also a duble handed both side player. she won her 2nd ITF title last week at Tokyo $50K upsetting 4th seed/n232 Shikha Uberoi, 6th seed/n209 Namigata and Top seed/n138 Chan. she's now the 2nd best ranked player born in 1990 (Paszek 1rst).

This year, I saw Chin-Wei Chan and Alona Bondarenko, along with of course Marion Bartoli and Dinara Safina.

The only one I was someone excited about was Chan. The others were pretty lackluster. A. Bondarenko's game was nothing much back in April at AI; I hear she is improving now and I can see AI as the beginning of a good season for her. Chan is young and small but I think she can do well on the tour and she definitely belongs there.

As far as I'm concerned, I saw Alona's match vs Peschke...and I saw her play a couple of year ago, she's defitively reached another level...and she was really brave to come back in the 3rd set...even if I think that Kveta had the match in her hand but didn't succeed to finish it.
