An all Asian 1st round in Charleston between Shuai Zhang and Su Wei Hsieh. 12 months ago Su Wei would have been the big favourite, but she has been concentrating a lot on her successful doubles career in recent times and has lost focus on her singles results. She is still very capable and a few wins could give her the confidence boost needed. Shuai Zhang though has moved swiftly up the WTA rankings after some good results in China late in 2013. She is very solid and will take advantage of any slip ups from Hsieh. This is a very tricky 1st round match between 2 very capable players, but I expect Zhang to take it, low stakes only though.
