Can Toronto be saved?

Maybe it's going to be called a "Drama Queen Thread".

Ok, once again, the seeds are losing, tons of retirements, withdrawals,etc.

The Canadians lost. Only Pelletier remains. Vs Jankovic.
The stadium is empty.

So can it be saved or it's going to be a huge disaster?

Re: Can Toronto be saved?

I don't know...it just seems like a cursed tournament right now. Perhaps 2009's retooling will help? No idea.

Re: Can Toronto be saved?

The problem is where it is on the calendar. By the time it gets to Canada, the girls have played Cincy, Stanford, San Diego and LA ... that's a lot of time to 1 - over play (Chakvetadze) 2 - get injured (Sharapova, Chakvetadze, Venus)

Players need a break before the Open starts. The Canadian should be one of the first summer events, and then it will be a much better event ...as it should be being a Tier 1, and one of the best tournaments all season [it has won the Players choice award for favorite tournament a few times now]

Can you imagine if Rogers Cup were in Vancouver?

Re: Can Toronto be saved?

I don't think the tournament can be saved this year. Aside from Henin and possibly Jankovic, there isn't a great interest in the rest of the field. Toronto really needed the Williams sisters and Sharapova this year, not to mention the actual top seeds (i.e. Ivanovic and Chakvetadze) making through their first matches.

Although the french seem to like her, half the people working at the US Open probably still don't know her name.

I think with her serve and her athleticism, her power, her court mobility, I just think when she’s on, she’s the greatest player we’ve ever seen, ever. Now, whether her record is the greatest remains to be seen because she hasn’t retired yet. But I think she is really the greatest player. I have seen Martina and Steffi at their best. There are little chinks in those players’ armor, but it was a different era, where you didn’t need to be the perfect player.

Re: Can Toronto be saved?

Tati can save it for me. I'm sure she won't though.

Petra Kvitova-Angelique Kerber-Jelena Ostapenko

Timea Bacsinszky-Ana Konjuh-Caroline Garcia-Zarina Diyas

Re: Can Toronto be saved?

It has had so many retirements, and shocks of seeds going out early.

True...


Man, this Roger's Cup is worse than last years... at least Hingis was still in... but I think it's the cursed tournament from now on, kinda like Indian Wells.

I ♥ Hingis
