Veteran Patty Schnyder and young clay specialist Alize Cornet are the top seeds in this International tournament, although local favourite Agnes Szavay will count on the crowd support and is also candidate for the title. Upcoming Russian Alisa Kleybanova and Ukranian beauty Alona Bondarenko are also among the favourites.
