From the ensuing loss of sensations can be distinguished Helena Bovino an Israeli Shahar Peer. However, this is the first public appearance on our tennis court for more than a year of absence associated with injuries. Much offensive departure from the tournament another of our young and talented athlete Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in two sets yielded Czech Nicole Vaydishevoy (6:0, 6:3).

Elena Lihovtseva confidently dealt with the Italian girl Maria Elena Camerin (6:0 and 6:1) and left in the second round, where the winner will play with a pair of Nadia Petrova (Russia) - Anna-Lena Gronefeld (Germany).
