10 of 32 Wimbledon women's seeds to play in San Jose

   Ten of the 32 women's singles seeds at Wimbledon are entered in the Mubadala Silicon Valley Classic, July 29-Aug. 4 at San Jose State.
   Elina Svitolina of Ukraine tops the list at No. 8, followed by No. 10 Aryna Sabalenka of Belarus and No. 15 Qiang Wang of China. 
   Also seeded at Wimbledon, which begins Monday, are No. 21 Elise Mertens of Belgium, No. 22 Donna Vekic of Croatia, No. 24 Petra Martic of Croatia, No. 26 Amanda Anisimova of Aventura, Fla., No. 27 Garbine Muguruza of Spain, No. 31 Carla Suarez Navarro of Spain and No. 32 Maria Sakkari of Greece.
   Anisimova, 17, stunned defending champion Simona Halep three weeks ago to become the youngest American in the French Open semifinals since 14-year-old Jennifer Capriati in 1990.
   Muguruza won the French Open in 2016 and Wimbledon in 2017 and climbed to No. 1 in September 2017.
   Sakkari reached the final of last year's inaugural Silicon Valley Classic, losing to Mihaela Buzarnescu of Romania.
   Neither Serena Williams, 37, nor Venus Williams, 39, is entered in San Jose, but one or both could be among four wild cards who will be announced soon.
