The second largest event this week is held in Tokyo. It is one out of two events held in the Japanese capital. Who will be strong enough to outfox, outsmart and outplay the others? That is up to you!
The major event this week is held in Filderstadt, but Tokyo can still claim some interesting players coming this week, including three players in the PYW Top 10 with Golovin, Zvonareva and Sugiyama. The home crowd will not only cheer for Ai, but has six other players to cheer for, among them Asagoe and Morigami.
1. Tatiana Golovin FRA 
2. Vera Zvonareva RUS 
3. Ai Sugiyama JPN 
4. Shinobu Asagoe JPN 
The top half saw all seeds survive. And all of them had no trouble and came through it in two sets. The wins of Zvonareva, Golovin and Mirza made the crowd happy probably, but it was their Ai winning that truly made them smile. Along with her Saori Obata and Aiko Nakamura also scored wins for the home crowd.
The bottom half was much the same. Again all seeds survived, with Kirilenko, Dulko and Asagoe having no trouble. Shinobu's win was another source of joy for the home crowd. Akiko Morigami took the remaining seed Nicole Vaidisova to three sets, but lost anyway. She was not the only Japanese player to go down in this section of the draw as Rika Fujiwara and Ayumi Morita also went out.
