Week #18 preview: Prague, Fes

Prague (CZE), Tier IV, $145,000
European clay season leading to Roland Garros continues with the Tier IV played in Prague. One of the best players in this season so far, Vera Zvonareva will be the top favourite for the title, in a tournament that will feature three other Top 30 players: Shahar Peer, Victoria Azarenka and Katarina Srebotnik. Italian Karin Knapp and Estoril runner-up Iveta Benesova, who is in impressive form lately, should be also taken into account.

Fes (MAR), Tier IV, $145,000
Anabel Medina and Gisela Dulko are the top favourites in one of the weakest tournaments on WTA Tour. Although it may be a good chance to watch the evolution of some promising young players such as Timea Bacsinszky, Sorana Cirstea, Ekaterina Makarova and Marina Erakovic. Also Sesil Karatantcheva and Jelena Dokic could write another chapter on their comeback stories.
