Anabel Medina Garrigues top seed for WTA Hobart
Anabel Medina Garrigues will be the top seed for next month’s Hobart WTA International.
Garrigues will be joined by Carla Suarez Navarro, Shahar Peer and Kateryna and Alona Bondarenko
Aleksandra Wozniak, Zheng Jie and Gisela Dulko will be among the seeded players for the event as well.
Jelena Dokic and Alicia Molik will be also participating in the main draw in the January 8-16 event ahead of the Australian Open in Melbourne.
Moorilla Hobart International Tournament Director Michael Roberts is excited about the potential match ups that fans will be able to watch in January.
“Our event has the world’s lowest player cut-off for an international level tournament meaning it is still the hardest tournament to be accepted into for its level on the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour. The 2010 field has a good mix of returning crowd favourites and new faces and boasts one of the most even fields I’ve seen in my seven years.”
“The draw will provide a fantastic opportunity for Aussies like Jelena and Alicia to have a real chance at taking out the title,” Roberts said.
“With the two remaining wildcards we hope to boost the quality of the field ever further.”
