PYW Birmingham





Welcome to Birmingham, Great Britain! This year's DFS Classic has a strong group of players competing for the title at the first grass court event of the year. Last year's champion Jelena Jankovic is back, this time as the second seed. She has been having success on both the PYW and WTA tour's, but her high seeding will surely put a big target on her back. Meilen Tu, the losing finalist last year, made a spirited run to the event's final stage as a qualifier. A consistent performer, Tu might struggle to reach the final again amongst a group of fierce PYW competitors. Maria Kirlenko, who just reached the Roland Garros final, Daniela Hantuchova, and Ai Sugiyama are all here and ready to do some serious damage. Who will win? Vote now as the qualifying competition kicks off.
