Moving on to the Citi Open's women's half, Samantha Stosur has been awarded the top seed. The world no. 14 didn't enjoy that eventful of a season on hard surface in the beginning, although she made up for it in the latter tournaments.
With season switching back to hard, one can only wonder if she can retain her newly found rhythm. Local favorite Sloane Stephens has been given the second seed. The 23 year old has won two titles on hard surface earlier this year, and is certainly a contender for the title. She will be side by side with Monica Puig and Eugenie Bouchard, who have been seeded third and fifth respectively. While Puig is building up some traction, the Canadian on the other hand has slipped down to the 40th place. The season hasn't been that eventful for her but given her past performances; she can certainly put up a fight. Bouchard's doubles partner Kristina Mladenovic will also be playing in Washington, and is coming in following a first round exit in the Wimbledon.
Lastly, one surprising name which didn't make to the seeding is Caroline Wozniacki. The former world no. 1 has fallen down to 60th spot, following an injury stricken year. With this being the last leg, she will at least try to break back into the top 30.
