Posted on July 26, 2008
The WTA Tour Tier I event in Montreal displays all the star power this week on the women's circuit, leaving the Nordea Nordic Light Open in Stockholm with the cast-offs.
No. 10-ranked Agnieszka Radwankska of Poland leads a ragtag crew of seeds including Hungary's Agnes Szavay, Slovenia's Katarina Srebotnik, Denmark's Caroline Wozniacki, Spaniard Anabel Medina Garrigues, India's Sania Mirza, the Ukraine's Kateryna Bondarenko, and New Zealand's Marina Erakovic.
Radwanska opens against French veteran Nathalie Dechy, and Mirza starts against another French veteran in Emilie Loit.
Radwanska is the defending champ, last year as the No. 2 seed steamrolling No. 8-seeded Russian Vera Dushevina.
