    The Players

    Serena Williams withdrew from the tournament due to influenza, so Aga Radwanska tops the billing. She heads a deep field including the in-form Victoria Azarenka, defending champion Petra Kvitova and Australian Open champ Angelique Kerber.



    About Madrid

    Madrid is one of the greatest, and quirkiest of Europe's capitals. Fashion center, food destination, film mecca, and yet it keeps trying to be a small town. Or a number of of small towns, at once. It's high-end fashion street is the Calle Serrano, though many of the smaller designers can be found in the Chueca neighborhood. Lavapiés, once a Jewish Quarter, and long a down-market working class area, has become a lively area of immigrants and their influence on cuisine and music.

    I won't be surprised if Safarova struggles too. Less than 24h after her title in Prague, should be mentally tough to get into a new tournament so soon

    Top seed Aga gets taken out by my fave Dominika Cibulkova... Revenge for the finals loss in Indian Wells where she blew a huge lead in the third set.

    Dominika Cibulkova (SVK) d [1] Agnieszka Radwanska (POL) | 6 - 4 | 6 - 7 (7) | 6 - 3
