Notes: Three former No. 1s among the seeds…No Williams sisters but plenty of Top 10ers and floaters…The Top 4 seeds receive opening-round byes…Tough openers for (1) Azarenka after a bye against Pennetta or Schiavone, (4) Vinci after a bye likely against the veteran Mattek-Sands, (7) Ivanovic vs. Cibulkova, (5) Stosur vs. the rolling Lepchenko, and (2) Radwanska after a bye likely vs. the veteran Hantuchova…Wildcards went to American Allie Kiick, France’s Virginie Razzano, and Stosur…Pulling from the event were Marion Bartoli, Kirsten Flipkens, Bojana Jovanovski, Kristina Mladenovic and Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova…Martina Hingis and Hantuchova received a wildcard in doubles…Cibulkova beat Bartoli in the final last year…Returning champions in the field are Cibulkova (2012), Radwanska (2011), and Kuznetsova (2010).

Flipkens Flips the Wimbledon Script; 1st-Time Winner Guaranteed

“It’s ridiculous!” Flipkens said. “Last year I didn’t even get into qualifying. To be a semifinalist at Wimbledon, it cannot be better. I was so calm on the court, I had nothing to lose and I just went for my shots…Kim (Clijsters) was one of the few people still believing in me last year so I have to thank her. I’m just enjoying every moment. It’s more than a dream.”
