And Mariana Duque-Marino is in as a lucky loser.

Oh, and I noticed that ex-Russian Shvedova is now representing Kazakhstan... talk about going from a relative pauper to a princess when it comes to her national ranking, huh? :D

I heard about Shvedova a few days ago. Yes, she will definitely be her country's top player.

I think that Shvedova's WTT experience could serve her well in terms of giving her more net experience. She did well this year for her team.
