No American Seeds This Week at WTA Cincinnati


Posted on July 18, 2005

No Top 10 players in residence this week as the Europeans hold court in Cincinnati, where Swiss Patty Schnyder heads the field at the Western & Southern Financial Group Women's Open.

Also among the seeds are Russian Vera Zvonareva, Serb Jelena Jankovic, Slovak Daniela Hantuchova, Frenchwoman Marion Bartoli, Japan's Ai Sugiyama, German Anna-Lena Groenefeld, and Czech Kveta Peschke.

The funds were apparently lacking this year in Cincinnati to attract a top player such as Lindsay Davenport, who in last year's final defeated Zvonareva.

Chanda Rubin also attempts her comeback from injury, facing fellow American Laura Granville in her opener.

On court Monday are Dekmeijere vs. Mattek, Nakamura vs. Spears, Fedak vs. Peer, Kirkland vs. Brandi, Rubin vs. Granville, Luzhanska vs. Avants, Haynes or Ospina vs. Salerni, Peschke vs. Panova, Jidkova vs. Cho, and Bammer vs. Uberoi.
