Another interesting stat:
According to the program from the JP Mogran tournament. Only 6 players have won this event then gone on to win the US Open, remember this is one of the longest running tournaments on tour (29 years)...
Although both Lindsay and Serena are one of the six to win JP and then win the Open, history is definitely not on the side of the person who wins Los Angeles...
