Cagnes-Sur-Mer 100K ITF 2013 tournament preview

romina oprandiSome players think it's a better option to collect points in big ITF tournaments rather than battle through Madrid and Rome quallies or first rounds. Romina Oprandi from Switzerland (photo) has just matched #46 WTA - her career high primarily set in 2006. She will play in Cagner-Sur-Mer and later in Prague. Oprandi already defeated her first opponent, Claire Feuerstein, and in the second round she will meet Teliana Pereira for the first time.

Yulia Putintseva is the defending champion. She couldn't make up her mind to play here or not, finally in the last moment she switched for Madrid, and her WC was given to another Kazakh, Sesil Karatantcheva. The replacement's journey didn't last for long, as she lost in three sets to one of favourites, Alexandra Cadantu from Romania, despite winning the first set with a bagel.

Mandy Minella is the second seed. The beauty from Luxembourg isn't most known for her clay achievements, although she has lately reached WTA semifinal in Marrakech, where she played very well. Her part of the draw is encouraging, at least the first matches.

Maybe there is little sense looking into seeds at this tournament, since not a single seed made the final here since 2006. Dark horse match can be played already in the first round - between Katowice WTA quarterfinalist Maria Elena Camerin and Estella Cabeza-Candela from Spain, who took Dinara Safina to France as a hitting partner.
