7 Russians in top 20, never achieved by any country other than USA.

Elena Bovina clinches top 20 ranking as Elena Dementieva defeated Amy Frazier.
I believe this is a record as I think even France didnt have this many top 20 at one time.
US is the only country that did so. And now it's Russia. Maybe the Americans are going out soon..

Lena plays the winner of Lisa Raymond (USA) vs. Eleni Daniilidou (GRE).

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Yes, Bovina! Very good win. Schiavone has had a solid year, and she's a tough player... gets everything back and can move the ball around with a lot of topsin. I hope Elena can stay healthy for the rest of the year. If she gets some matches under her belt and works on her mental strength (today's three set win is a good start!), she can make a big impact on the tour.

Keep it up, Elena!

Ouch

Francesca had lots of points to defend and she and Elena have no lost love for each other so this one has to smart. Wonder if Fran let go right away on the handshake?

Go get em in Montreal, Franny
