Five of the WTA top twenty are in Auckland this week for the ASB Classic and you can watch live on bet365.
There is no return this year of the 2009 champion Elena Dementieva but there are still plenty of big names competing in Auckland.
Top seed is the Italian Flavia Pennetta, who’s been around in the top thirty for a while but in 2009, Pennetta has added a lot of extra firepower to her game and is now on the edge of the top ten.
Most people’s eyes will be on the third seed Yanina Wickmayer, the Belgian US Open semi-finalist who was involved in the controversial missed drugs test scandal back in the autumn. Wickmayer’s ban was overturned by a court but not in time for her to make the entry date for the Australian Open.
Last year’s runner-up Elena Vesnina is the sixth seed and in a very open field the tall, strong Russian could be a good tip for another deep run this week.
