Ana Ivanovic and Lisa-Maria Moser took part in the draw ceremony - but it was a very unique one...
It was a living draw - ballkids and court hostesses physically built up a living draw, all themselves.
The draw ceremony took place over the weekend at CASA MODA, a nearby clothes store in the city.
Julia Goerges, who reached the final at the Generali Ladies Linz last year, also hit the stores.
As did fellow German Andrea Petkovic, whose best result at this tournament was the semifinals in 2010.
Petkovic, who fell to Patty Schnyder in that match, tried out some boots with Barbara Schett.
We're not quite sure what Schett and Goerges left with but looks like more than just a pair of boots.
Petra Kvitova couldn't play the tournament but still came on site to get closer to the fans.
Dominika Cibulkova, who lost to Kvitova in the 2011 final here, had herself a special adventure.
And if you guessed Patricia Mayr-Achleitner and Cibulkova from the homepage, you guessed right...
Cibulkova and Mayr-Achleitner checked out the 3D space show at the Ars Electronica Center in Linz.
One constant - and very welcome, and multiplicitous - presence in Linz is the Generali lion mascot.
Daniela Hantuchova signed memorabilia for her children's charity in Cambodia, the House Of The Smile.
She signed calendars, posters, t-shirts... and there was a special guest in the line-up - look back...
In fact three of them - the very charitable Hantuchova posed with three Generali lions afterwards.
