Jang Su Jeong (+38, No.179 to No.141): The South Korean enjoyed a good week in Honolulu, finishing as runner-up to top seed Zhang Shuai.

Prior to that match, she had not dropped a set in the tournament, moving past Alja Tomljanovic 7-5, 7-6(3) in the quarterfinals; and in the round previously she was 6-4, 4-2 up on sixth seed Sachia Vickery before the American had to retire.

Sabina Sharipova (+22, No.186 to No.164): She made the semifinals in Mumbai, beating third seed Yanina Wickmayer 3-6, 6-4, 6-2 in the quarterfinal, before losing to eventual runner-up Jakupovic in three sets, 6-3, 3-6, 3-6.
