Week #06 preview: Paris, Pattaya

Paris (FRA), Tier II, $600,000
Anna Chakvetadze and Daniela Hantuchova will be the top favorites at the indoor tournament held in Paris. French players Marion Bartoli and Amelie Mauresmo will be motivated playing at home and will try to improve after a poor beggining of the season. They will be joined by countrymates Razzano, Loit, Cornet, Dechy and Pin. Former Top 5 players Elena Dementieva and Nadia Petrova and young talents Victoria Azarenka and Agnes Szavay should be also taken into account.

Pattaya (THA), Tier IV, $170,000
Weak field for this Tier IV with only two Top 50 players, Agnieszka Radwanska and Sania Mirza, who will be the main contenders for the title.
