3. That's the 'amount' of PYW top 100 players that have entered the Palermo qualifying draw. With the highest ranked player being Marta Marrero. The Spanish fury holds a negative win/loss record, but that hasn't stopped her from reaching 4 quarterfinals in her career. However, Marta isn't that consistent. While in some matches she trashes her opponent in less than an hour, on other occasions she gets a bagel donated herself. The Spaniard will have to play her best could face some serious problems with Flipkens and Kurhajcova, if they get through ofcourse.

This wouldn't be an Italian event if there weren't any Italians in it; and believe there are. 10 to be exactly, but only 5 of them have ever played a match on the PYW Tour. Even stronger: only one out of five was able to win a match: unheralded Emily Stellato. She'll have to use all her experience to beat newcomer Elisa Balsamo.

Melinda Czink is another frequent qualifier. The Hungarian beauty trounced all her competition on her way to the Wimbledon main draw and isn't afraid to repeat this achievement on the red clay, seeing that the only noteworthed player in her section is Elise Tamaëla.

Maret Ani should prevail in her quarter, but do note the verb should, cause nothing is sure in PYW. Emma Laine, Cindy Watson and Stephanie Gehrlein could be possible contenders for the Estonian's main draw spot.

But enough talked about who's who. Time for some action! Vote for the players you'd like to see reach the second qualifying round!
