Bulgarian qualifier Tsvetlana Pironkova will play Alize Cornet from France in the first round. Pironkova is a very talented player who made a solid start to 2008, winning 2 qualifying matches at the Tier II event in Sydney before bowing out in 3 tight sets to Dominika Cibulkova. At the Australian Open, the 20 year old thrashed Olga Govortsova in the 1st round. In round 2 she played second seed Svetlana Kuznetsova. Despite leading 5–2 and having set points in the 1st set, the Bulgarian eventually lost 7–6(0), 6–2. At the Tier II Proximus Diamond Games in Antwerp in February, Pironkova qualified for the loss of only 10 games in 3 matches, won her first round match for the loss of just two more, and then took a 7–6, 3–1 second-round lead over Belgian World No.1 Justine Henin before losing the match in three sets. She caused another shocking upset at the 2008 Rome Masters. As a qualifier, she beat top seed and world no. 3 Ana Ivanovic in the second round for the biggest victory of her career so far. She advanced to the quarterfinals, her first ever at a Tier I event, when Victoria Azarenka retired during their third round match with Pironkova leading 6–1, 1–0. In the quarterfinals she was defeated 6–2, 3–6, 6–1 by Anna Chakvetadze. The second half of her season wasn´t so convincing but she is still showing some great moments and should be in a good shape at the moment. She is coming off the qualifiers here and will face French young star Alize Cornet. Cornet is also a player of big potential but her latest results weren´t impressive though. At the US Open, she was seeded 16th, and reached the third round with a win over Camille Pin and Bethanie Mattek, however losing to Anna-Lena Groenefeld in the third. Then she made two second rounds in a row and we think she is not playing her best at present. Pironkova´s odds above 2.5 are worth trying for us.
