The 2010 Cincinnati Open women’s main draw singles 1st round matches are now complete. The 2nd round matches are underway and are scheduled to be completed over 2 days. All of the top seeds will be in action as players compete for another major title on the WTA Tour and a spot in the 8-player WTA Tour Finals in Doha.

OCA will keep you updated with all of the 2nd round results as matches are completed, right here on this post. The matches numbered from No.1 to No.8 in the draw below are the matches from the top half of the draw, whilst matches No.9 to No.16 are the matches from the bottom half of the draw. 13 matches are scheduled for today, which will complete the 2nd round of singles matches after which, only 16 players will remain. All of these matches will be played on just 4 courts, Centre Court, Grandstand Court and Courts 1 and 3.

Pictured above is 26 year old Akgul Amanmuradova of Uzbekistan in position and ready to drive this double handed backhand ground stroke. The 1.9m Amanmuradova is enjoying her best career result in a major tournament and next takes on No.1 seed Jelena Jankovic for a spot in her first major quarter final. Amanmuradova achieved her best result in a Grand Slam singles event this year by making the 3rd round at Roland Garros.

3 matches from the 2nd round were played yesterday with No.1 seed Jelena Jankovic and No.16 seed Marion Bartoli both won through to the round of 16. The player’s name that is bolded is OCA’s prediction of who will win each match. Any player whose name is italicised and has her first name removed is a seeded player who was expected to win through to the 2nd round.
