Dominika Cibulkova, playing her first tournament since becoming a Top 10 player, opted for the Malaysian Open instead of joining her teammates for the Fed Cup this weekend in Quebec. Cibulkova is the top seed at the event.

The most glowing face at the player party was the 43-year-old Japanese Kimiko Date-Krumm, although her participation was cut short as she retired in the first round against Cagla Buyukakcay.
