Kremlin Cup Chief: We'll Attract Better Players in 2013
(UPDATES to correct Azarenka champion in 2010, not 2011)
The head of Russian tennis acknowledged Thursday that this year's men's field for the Kremlin Cup is the weakest in years, but insisted that the finances are in place to attract higher-caliber players for the 2013 edition.
Only seven top-50 players are entered for the $670,000 event starting Monday, with the top seed likely to be Alexander Dolgopolov, ranked 20th in the world.
"The list of players does not probably comply with the Kremlin Cup brand, but it is even," said Shamil Tarpishchev, the head of the Russian Tennis Federation.
He vowed the competition would strengthen next year, however.
“We have agreement with the Bank of Moscow about the attraction of the strongest players for the next year.”
The traditionally stronger women's draw features 2011 U.S. Open champion Sam Stosur and former world Nos. 1 Caroline Wozniacki and Ana Ivanovic.
"The women’s draw is very good this year," Tarpishchev said. "These are 12 players from the top 30, it is a solid tournament."
For the women, the Kremlin Cup is the last stop on the Premier tour before the season-ending WTA championships and offers $740,000 in prize money.
The WTA made the women's event a premier category in 2009, and it has has consistently drawn starring such big names as Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka, who won it in 2010.
The joint WTA and ATP event starts Monday in the Russian capital, and has attracted more stars of the women's game than that of the men's.
A total of eleven Russians are in the main draw, with 16th-ranked Maria Kirilenko leading the charge in the women's draw as fifth seed, and three-time champion Nikolay Davydenko leading five men. They could be joined by other qualifiers this weekend.
"These championships will again see the meeting of world-class professionals who have demonstrated fantastic preparation and skill, with some talented debutants," Putin was quoted as saying on the Kremlin website.
This season Russian players, he said, "have already brought us joy: the silver of Maria Sharapova and the bronze of Maria Kirilenko and Nadia Petrova were worthy contributions to the Russian haul at the Olympics in London."
"I hope that the native walls and the support of the fans will help the Russians succeed in Moscow," Putin said.
The top four seeds for the WTA event are Sam Stosur, Marion Bartoli, Caroline Wozniacki and Ana Ivanovic. On the men's side, they are Alexander Dolgopolov, Andreas Seppi, Viktor Troicki and Thomaz Bellucci.
All eight have byes into the second round.
