The WTA Tour this week will be conducting the BNP Paribas Luxembourg Open in the city of Luxembourg, featuring some of the brightest names in the tennis world.
The top seed has been given to the Czech Petra Kvitova, who has been in a decent form off lately. After battling with inconsistencies through the majority of the season, she revived her form in August. She reached the semifinal in Olympics, WTA New Haven and moved on to win the Wuhan Open. She is certainly in store for a massive counter from the Dane Caroline Wozniacki, who made it back into the top 20 recently. The world no. 17 won her second title on the Asian leg of the tour, in Hong Kong. She defeated Kristina Mladenovic in the final, to lift her second trophy in recent weeks. Kiki Bertens has been awarded the third seed, who has failed to repeat her antics from the clay surface on tour in the recent months.
She won the WTA Nurnberg and reached the semifinal of French Open, but as the momentum shifted from clay, her form dropped severely, as she lost in the first round of every event since WTA Gstaad. Other players include Eugenie Bouchard, Caroline Garcia and Johanna Larsson.

TThe BGL BNP Luxembourg Open is an annual indoor hard court tournament on the WTA Tour. This year's edition will be the 25th in tournament history.
As the winner will come away with a nice portion of the $226,750 total prize money, we can safely say that the Luxembourg Open is a fairly lucrative event this year. The reigning champion is the German Annika Beck who will try to defend her title as the last, eighth seed of the tournament. Considering the fact that one top 10 player and several top 20 competitors will be present, this might turn out to be an obstacle that's going to be hard to overcome. Beck surely won't back down, and considering the fact that she already has two WTA titles in her career (naturally including the 2014 Luxembourg Open), she might be able to do it again. Her biggest opponents in that quest will be world number 10 and top seed Timea Bacsinszky, world number 12 and second seed Ana Ivanovic and probably her world number 20 compatriot, six-time career titlist Andrea Petkovic.
The Swiss Bacsinszky already knows what it's like to go all the way and win here, as she was able to do just that back in 2009, defeating Sabine Lisicki in the final.
