Top Favourites:



Kim Clijsters BEL [5]



Elena Dementieva RUS [3]



Daniela Hantuchova SVK [9]



Maria Kirilenko RUS



Karolina Sprem CRO

Last week's event in San Diego once more made clear that Kim Clijsters is actually the one true favourite. Grilling her opponents in almost every match, the Belgian Bomber is within a very short distance of the #1 position on the rankings. And with only four points to defend the rest of the year, that position will most probably be hers. The only question is.. when?

It won't be here in Los Angeles. The gap is too big and with Daniela Hantuchova, the current #1 and the only number one PYW has ever had, also active here, it might prove to be too hard for Kim to close the gap much.

Elena Dementieva has to fear for her #2 position though, as Clijsters keeps closing in and can overtake the Russian sweetheart this week.

New favourite is Croatia's Karolina Sprem, after last week's impressive final in San Diego. She was crushed by Clijsters, but her run was impressive nonetheless. It is questionable whether the Croatian hardhitter can perform consistently though and the JPMorgan Chase Open will be a true test to her.

An interesting field of players is present to fight it out for the title here in LA. 56 players start in the first round - 32 will make it through, including the top eight seeds who have a Bye in the first round and are thus guaranteed a place in the second round.
