With 20 ranking spots between her and the No. 2 seed, world No. 1 Dinara Safina should safely be considered the favorite this week on hardcourt at the Banka Koper Slovenia Open in Portoroz on hardcourt.

Also seeded are Anabel Medina Garrigues, Kaia Kanepi, Roberta Vinci, Sara Errani, the once-promising Lucie Safarova, Vera Dushevina, and Petra Kvitova.

Wildcards went to Slovenian hopefuls Tadeja Majeric (who opens against Safina), Nastja Kolar, and Croatia's Petra Martic.

Former world No. 1 junior Arantxa Rus of the Netherlands opens against the No. 5-seeded Errani.
