Top 8 seeds:
1 Karen Barbat
2 Karina I. Jacobsgaard
3 Mai Grage
4 Ulrikke Høyer
5 Emma Rønholt
6 Anna Signe Rasmussen
7 Emilie Elsvad
8 Malene Stripp
Notable players missing are Emilie Francati, Julie Noe, Martine Ditlev (who hasn't played in Denmark for more than a year) & Malou Ejdesgaard (and obviously Wozniancki). Karen has been in excellent form lately and is a huge favourite to win the title. Julie Noe seems to be playing a G1 junior ITF in Thailand instead. I have no idea what Emilie Francati is doing (she's not on the G1 Thailand acceptance list).
^ It certainly looks that way. Notice also that Malou's own club KB is hosting the tournament! I would at least expect her to play this tournament if any. I miss Malou...
Maria Jespersen is also missing on the acceptance list btw.
I'm looking forward to the main draw though. Mai Grage & Barbat could end up in the same half, which would be brutal. But we may also see "new" players having a great run now that Maria, Julie and Emilie aren't playing.

Fine win by Simone, impressive score by Ida. And a good effort by Rebekka Hillingsø against Ulrikke Høyer (U14 vs U18!).
