The WTA Malaysian Open is set to be played this week in Kuala Lumpur. An impressive pool of players has been selected by the organizers, who are bound to entertain the fans.
The top seed is the Ukrainian No. 1 Elina Svitolina, who just broke into the top 10 by winning the WTA Dubai. She won her second consecutive title of the season by defeating Caroline Wozniacki in the final, and Angelique Kerber in the semis. Being the defending champion, without a doubt, she'll be the player to beat in the tournament. Next up is the Spaniard Carla Suarez Navarro, who has played only in the Australian Open so far. Having lost in the second round there, she is low on momentum and confidence. It'll be interesting to see how far she makes it in the tournament, given her lack of form. Moving on to third seed, it has been awarded to the Frenchwoman Caroline Garcia, who hasn't had that great of a start. She has been losing in the second round of her last three events - a jinx which she'll be keen on breaking in Malaysia.
Shuai Peng of China will also be playing in the tournament as the fourth seed, who is coming in after her third round defeat in Dubai.

The 2016 WTA Malaysian Open will be the 7th edition in tournament history. The outdoor hard court tournament that's held annually in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, will have a $250.000 total prize money.
The reigning champion is the Danish Caroline Wozniacki who decided not to defend her title and instead trying her luck in Monterrey. In her absence the top seed will be the Italian Roberta Vinci, a 10-time WTA titlist veteran. While she will be the highest seeded player in the main draw, we could argue that she is not among the top 3 favorites who could go all the way and raise the trophy. The Ukrainian Elina Svitolina fits that description much better. With three WTA titles under her belt, she could definitely do massive damage throughout the week and possibly even win the event. If not her, third seed and world number 31 Sabine Lisicki could also be potentially dangerous. These three will be the only top 30 players in the main draw. World number 40 Annika Beck will be the fourth seed, followed by world number 60 Nao Hibino, world number 61 Eugenie Bouchard who has seen better days, world number 65 Hsieh Su-wei and world number 72 Zheng Saisai.
While the tournament may not be totally wide open thanks to the Germans, none of these players' good performance would be a huge surprise.

This years BMW Malaysian Open will be the sixth edition of the Kuala Lumpur based tournament. The total prize money is $250.000, from which more than $120.000 will go to the winner.
The reigning champion is Donna Vekic from Serbia, who unfortunately won’t be able to compete at this year’s tournament. Because the event was only founded in 2010, there are no multiple winners so far. With that said, the Malaysian Open’s prestige definitely rose in the last couple of years, which is why many top players chose to play at Kuala Lumpur this season.Out of those top names, 22-time WTA titlist Caroline Wozniacki is by far the biggest one. The still only 24-year-old Dane will be the overwhelming favorite for the title. Wozniacki will obviously be the top seed of the tournament as well. The second seed will be the German Sabine Lisicki, who is a four-time WTA titlist.
Although her world ranking did not allow her to directly qualify for the tournament, Hsieh Su-Wei, the 2012 winner will also enter the tournament, after receiving a wild card.
