Pictured above is No.27 seed Agnes Szavay of Hungary beautifully poised to go after the ball in her service action. The 21 year old made the round of 16 in Miami last year. Szavay really needs to record some quarter final results in these Premier Mandatory tournaments and Premier FIVE category events on the WTA Tour this year to move up towards a Top 10 ranking.
