PYW Doubles Tokyo





Welcome to Tokyo, Japan! After two weeks of smaller tournaments, the Asian hard court season really hits its peak here in Tokyo at the fifth and final Premier 5 event of the year. Besides the majors, this is one of the biggest, most important tournaments of the year for the stars of the WTA, so they will be coming out in full force in Tokyo. The past two weeks some some experimental, newly-formed, or hoping-to-improve tandems playing at the International level, however most of the top teams in doubles are assembling here in Tokyo, as each wants glory and in the case of all but top-seeded Americans Liezel Huber and Lisa Raymond, who have already done so, many teams hope to pick up some points in the race to the TEB BNP Paribas WTA Championships in Istanbul so they can qualify. Some of the best candidates for this are the second seeds, Argentine Gisela Dulko and Italian Flavia Pennetta, the third seeds Vania King of the USA and Yaroslava Shvedova of Kazakhstan, and the fourth seeds, Belorussian Victoria Azarenka teaming with Russia's Maria Kirilenko. Though these pairings are some of the top candidates in Tokyo, many others are sure to have their fair say before this week is over. Your votes decide the winner! Please vote now as the Toray Pan Pacific Open gets underway!!!
