The Baku Open 2012 takes place this week and you can watch the live tennis from Azerbaijan for free online.
World number 41 Ksenia Pervak is the favourite to go all the way this week. Pervak made her breakthrough at this event twelve months ago, reaching her first WTA final before losing to former Wimbledon and US Open finalist Vera Zvonareva.
However she hasn't been particularly consistent in 2012, enjoying decent runs in Indian Wells and Miami and making the semis in Bad Gastein last month but otherwise it's been a string of early exits. However she likes the hard courts and her draw is extremely kind this week.
The tournament is especially weak this year due to its proximity to the Olympics and Pervak's half of the draw contains just one other player ranked inside the top 100.
On paper Pervak's main challenge should come from second seed and world number 72 Alexandra Panova who made her first WTA final on the clay of Bogota earlier this season. However Panova could face a stiff test from her heavy hitting compatriot Nina Bratchikova who's seeded sixth this week. The duo could meet in the quarter-finals and if Bratchikova reproduces the form which saw her reach the third round of the Australian Open at the start of the year, Panova could be in trouble.
Other contenders include Andrea Hlavackova and the highly talented young Serb Bojana Jovanovski.
