Yikes! What a dinkfest! Maybe Akgul Amanmuradova, How is her game nowadays?

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!

Re: WWW Tashkent? [Draw inside]

Just typed a full paragraph out, but came up with invalid thread.

Not repeating it, but basically along the lines of a bit of a meh field, full of European journeywomen. Zavatska/Penko two of the more interesting, but have drawn each other. Kalinskaya in a decent section and could maybe make another WTA semi here. Hopefully Kuzmova can get something going again after a poor few months, and it'll be interesting to see if Paolini can back up her Guangzhou success, but I've personally not got a lot of interest outside of that.

Nice level for Ostapenko to step down to, before she starts using her unlimited GS WCs with abandon in higher events.
I love Gasparyan's game, and last year this tournament was great for her after all her injury woes, this year after that injury at Wimbledon which gifted Elina her first GS SF, she again deserves this.

The most wide open field I’ve seen all season. I hope Ostapenko steps up and takes advantage, but literally anyone could win this

Is Bondarenko still playing? Haven't seen her name in a WTA-draw for ages.

Hopefully the Belgians can make it 4 out of 4 in R1.

As for the winner, I voted 'other'. But don't ask me who!

PAST: Kim Clijsters - Maria Kirilenko - Ana Ivanovic - Yanina Wickmayer - Tatiana Golovin - Nicole Vaidisova

PRESENT: Garbińe Muguruza - Amanda Anisimova - Fanny Stollar - Sofya Zhuk - Petra Kvitova - Sloane Stephens - Donna Vekic - Lucie Safarova - Noami Osaka - Katie Boulter

I would say Kalinskaya or Niculescu for the surprise!😀

All the internationals give wcs to locals, but these 3 girls are guaranteed in all events (WTA or ITF) the last 5 years!

Re: WWW Tashkent? [Draw inside]

Last year for Tashkent I can remember it’s inaugural event 20 years ago, won by Anna Smashnova of Israel.

Hope its final edition is as successful as possible; its always had weak draws so nothing new this year.

They should ask Iroda Tulyaganova to present the winners trophy.

It would be great for Ostapenko and the tournament if she won this.

I’m expecting a Pavlyuchenkova Baku type performance though with double faults galore but able to scrape through a few rounds with her superior ground game against this competition.

Re: WWW Tashkent? [Draw inside]

Bondarenko is back from her 2nd pregnancy, that's why she got "seeded" 9th in singles and 5th in doubles with Krunic to avoid drawing seeds in R1s under the new WTA Serena-policy

Conchita MARTINEZ-Mary PIERCE-Lindsay DAVENPORT-Martina HINGIS-Serena WILLIAMS- and new legend Monica PUIG
Kata Srebotnik - Anabel Medina-Garrigues - Arantxa Parra-Santonja
Garbińe Muguruza- Caroline Garcia- Polona Hercog- Astra Sharma - ...
