The Tashkent Open is back with yet another edition this year, as the tennis extravaganza of Uzbekistan will feature some of the rising and experienced female tennis stars on the WTA Tour.
Kirsten Flipkens of Belgium is the top seed here, following Johanna Larsson's withdrawal from the tournament. The Belgian last played in WTA Seoul, where she lost early in the second round. A similar feat was also seen from the Turkish Cagla Buyukakcay, who moved to the ITF Circuit after her early defeat in the US Open. However, that didn't help her either as she lost in the St. Petersburg ITF event, in the second round. Rising Japanese stars Nao Hibino and Kurumi Nara will also be participating in the event as the fourth and fifth seed respectively. Hibino's form has been a disastrous one in the recent weeks, given that she has failed consistently to move past the second rounds. Nara on the other hand has been slightly on the better side, but still has a massive room for improvement. She was last the quarter finalist in Tokyo International.
Naomi Broady, Lesia Tsurenko and Sorana Cirstea are few of the other seeded players to be playing in Tashkent. It will be interesting to follow this tournament and see who emerges as the champion here.

With its $220,000 total prize money, the tourney offers a great opportunity for the second-tier players who are not good enough to compete at the more lucrative Wuhan Open throughout the week. Founded in 1999, the Open will welcome the competitors for the 17th time this year. Reigning champion Karin Knapp won’t be in the lineup this season due to scheduling reasons. In her absence, the highest seeded player will be world number 43 Annika Beck. She will be followed by her compatriot, world number 55 Carina Witthoft, world number 60 Polona Hercog, world number 61 Johanna Larsson, world number 69 Katerina Siniakova, world number 70 Margarita Gasparyan, world number 77 Jelena Ostapenko and last but not least, eighth seed and world number 84 Andreea Mitu.

If not her, any of the other seven seeded players could go all the way. The players are extremely close to each other in the ranking which means that the better player on the day will probably win most of the time.
