Ruzici retired due to a left hip injury.

Note on seeding:

Source for draw was the WTA site, but note I have altered the doubles seeding for the following reasons: (A) There can't have been 8 seeded doubles teams, (B) draw placement. The WTA site doubles draw has #2 seeds vs #3 seeds in the QF-impossible. Thus I have taken the #1 and #2 seeds as given and guessed at the #3 and #4 seeds based on draw position and seeds in other events.

I have listed the singles seeds as given by the WTA, but note (Per Chaton)
"The seedings are definetly not possible as given by WTA. Bunge is given as #3 seed, but would meet #2 seed Ruzici in QF in the draw. Gregory as #6 seed would have met #2 Ruzici in the 2nd round if she wouldn't have lost her first match."

(per Rollo) "the more likely #6 is Walsh, but this does not solve the Bunge mess."
