Cornet Top Seed This Week at WTA Barcelona


Posted on April 11, 2009

While the top dogs grapple for the big bone this week at the Family Circle Cup in Charleston, the pups fight for the scraps at the Barcelona Ladies Open in Spain.

French comer Alize Cornet is the top seed at the $220,000 event, joined by fellow seeds Flavia Pennetta, Anabel Medina Garrigues, Kaia Kanepi, Carla Suarez Navarro, Maria Kirilenko, Sara Errani and Sorana Cirstea.

Wildcards went to Spain's Nuria Llagostera Vives, Estrella Cabeza Candela, and Pennetta.

No. 3 Medina Garrigues opens against unseeded Nicole Vaidisova.

Hall of famer Arantxa Sanchez Vicario is one of the tournament organizers.

Kirilenko is the defending champion, in last year's final rolling over Spanish wildcard Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez 6-0, 6-2.
