Open GDF Suez
Paris, France
Surface: hard indoor
$700,000

Seeds: Elena Dementieva, Flavia Pennetta, Yanina Wickmayer, Francesca Schiavone, Aravane Rezai, Shahar Peer, Virginie Razzano, Elena Vesnina


Floaters: Melanie “C’mon!” Oudin, Patty Schnyder, Alize Cornet, Alisa Kleybanova

Notes: Weak field for such a storied event; Oudin looking to keep the mojo alive after leading the U.S. to a first-round Fed Cup win; one Top 10-er in Dementieva; openers of interest include (7) Razzano vs. Schnyder, (6) Peer vs. Cornet; Dementieva lost to Amelie Mauresmo in last year’s final; no returning champions in the field; former No. 1-ranked tournament winners over the years are Mauresmo (2009,’06,’01), Dinara Safina (2005), Kim Clijsters (2004), Serena Williams (2003,’99), Venus Williams (2002), Martina Hingis (1997), Steffi Graf (1995), and Martina Navratilova (1994-93).

PTT Pattaya Open
Pattaya City, Thailand

$220,000

Seeds: Vera Zvonareva, Sabine Lisicki, Vera Dushevina, Yaroslava Shvedova, Sybille Bammer, Sania Mirza, Kimiko Date-Krumm, Julia Goerges

Floaters: Anna Chakvetadze

Notes: Yawn. No Top 10 players; watch to see who the 39-year-old Date-Krumm can beat; wildcards to Thai mouthfuls Noppawan Lertcheewakarn, Suchanan Viratprasert and Varatchaya Wongteanchai; former champs in the field are Zvonareva (2009) and Bammer (2007).
