The 2010 Porsche Tennis Grand Prix will witness a long awaited return of former world number one Dinara Safina after the Aussie Open debacle. The Premier WTA event played in Stuttgart Germany saw the triumph of Svetlana Kuznetsova over Dinara Safina last year. This year however, the equations have changed drastically. The rise of Caroline Wozniacki and Samantha Stosur has given a new dimension to the current scenario.
The top half of the draw features Caroline Wozniacki with a difficult draw as she faces the first scare in quarterfinals by setting up clash with friend and on-court rival Victoria Azarenka. A step ahead (which is expected) would give Wozniacki another test in either Samantha Stosur or defending champion Svetlana Kuznetsova. If she gets through these big names then title triumph becomes a huge possibility.
The bottom half of the draw features Dinara Safina battling it out with names like Jelena Jankovic and Agnieszka Radwanska for the final spot. Chances are that an in-form Jelena Jankovic will prove too much for the injury-recovering Russian, who has been out of action since January.
Despite being a finalist at the year's first Grand Slam, Belgian Justine Henin could not get a direct entry to the main draw, and as a result, has entered the event as a wild card. Her quarter of the draw features Jelena Jankovic and Francesca Schiavone. One could have expected a lot more from the Belgian if a recent finger injury wouldn't have taken place. During her Fed Cup tourney, the Belgian tore a ligament which may even force her to withdraw as well. Although, till the official announcement, Henin is still in the field.
With the equations that have emerged after the seed placement in the draw, Jankovic is the favourite to reach the final from the bottom half, with top half still extremely competitive and unpredictable. We will have to wait and watch, Won't we?
