    Strong field in St Petersburg. Personally, hoping for strong tournaments from Dominika, Caro and Ana.

    If Pavs can keep her head together:) I feel she has a good shot at winning the title.Pavs is one of the cleanest strikers of the ball in the WTA,pity her head gets in the way:)

    Caroline Wozniacki will likely meet Dominika Cibulkova in the second round. Probably a draw neither wanted after disappointing AO campaigns. Two of my faves too.

    Sears was well enough to train with Ana, but I couldn't find anywhere the confirmation that he was with her in Russia.

    Tournaments just right after FED CUP could be very tricky .. my favourite is Bencic, however rested Pavlyuchenkova could be hard obstacle to cross.

    One of the reasons I have gone for Pavs to win this tournament is is in indoors and also in Russia
    When her game is 'one' it is delightful' as I have said many times Pavs is one of the cleanest striker's of the ball' in the WTA
    Also I have interviewed her,she is delightful!
