Posted on September 20, 2009

HANSOL KOREA OPEN
Seoul, Korea
Surface: hard

Seeds: Daniela Hantuchova, Anabel Medina Garrigues, Francesca Schiavone, Sorana Cirstea, Alisa Kleybanova, Anastasia Pavlyuchenkva, Vera Dushevina, Sybille Bammer

Floaters: Maria Kirilenko, Katarina Srebotnik, Anna-Lena Groenefeld

Notes: (4) Cirstea vs. Groenefeld in the first round; defending champ Kirilenko unseeded.

Tashkent Open
Tashkent, Uzbekistan
Surface: hard


Seeds: Yaroslava Shvedova, Shahar Peer, Ioana Raluca Olaru, Olga Govortsova, Stefanie Voegele, Monica Niculescu, Patricia Mayr, Galina Voskoboeva
