Medina Garrigues Top Seed at Star-Challenged WTA Guangzhou

Posted on September 24, 2007

No Top 30 players in sight this week at the Guangzhou International Women's Open in China, where Spain's Anabel Medina Garrigues fronts the tournament billboards around town.

Other seeded players are Virginie Razzano, China's own Shuai Peng, Dominika Cibulkova, Olga Poutchkova, Olga Govortsova, Lourdes Dominguez Lino, and Alla Kudryavtseva.

Wildcards went to China's Shengnan Sun who opens against Medina Garrigues, Zi Yan, and Chunmei Ji.

In last year's final, Russian Anna Chakvetadze fortified her eventual run to the Top 10 by steamrolling Medina Garrigues 6-1, 6-4.
