Roberta Vinci is the third seed in this week’s Texas Tennis Open, which she enters with ambitions of winning her first WTA title of 2012. Following an incredible year in 2011 Vinci hasn’t quite managed to replicate her achievements so far this season. She’s not been playing at all badly though, and she looks like a genuine contender here in Dallas.
Vinci will start her campaign with a first round match against Su-Wei Hsieh of Chinese Taipei. Hsieh has emerged as one of Asia’s best players this season, having amassed a 30-14 match record and won a WTA title in Kuala Lumpur. Hsieh showed great potential in her mid-teens, but is only now starting to make a name for herself just over ten years on.
This is a pretty tough first round draw for Vinci, but she’ll enter as the favourite. The Italian will need to feeling sharp to avoid an early upset when these two players get play started on the Grandstand 2 Court this afternoon.
