Jankovic, Hantuchova Lead at Monterrey: WTA Preview


Posted on February 27, 2010

Only one event this week on the WTA Tour as the majority of players rest-up for the top-tier event in Indian Wells:

Monterrey Open
Monterrey, Mexico
Surface: hard
$220,000

Seeds: Jelena Jankovic, Daniela Hantuchova, Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, Dominika Cibulkova, Agnes Szavay, Anabel Medina Garrigues, Aleksandra Wozniak, Lucie Safarova

Floaters: none

Notes: Big fall-off in star capacity after Jankovic and Hantuchova; Venus was in-country this weekend but split after the Acapulco final as Monterrey didn't have enough cheddar to keep her in Mexico; wildcards went to the seeds Jankovic, Hantuchova and Cibulkova; no Mexican players get directly in (four Mexicans are in the qualifying and all needed wildcards to get in); former Top 5er Jelena Dokic is the top seed in the qualifying; last year France's Marion Bartoli defeated China's Li Na in the inaugural final, neither return in 2010; the top-ranked Mexican player, Alejandra Granillo, ranks No. 578, ouch.
