Wozniacki.

The No.1 seed Svetlana Kuznetsova who is pictured above preparing to go after her serve will be looking to post some impressive results in the coming rounds after being defeated in her first match at the Indian Wells Open. The 24 year old Russian has won 2 Grand Slam singles titles thus far including Roland Garros in 2009 and would love to add another this year and outshine all of the other Russian women on the WTA Tour.
