Yeah,Kim is one of my favorite PEOPLE--not just athletes--in all of sports...if she's gonna lose her USO crown,then I'd rather that someone simply outplayed her instead of seeing her health decide the issue

Congrats on Number Three, Kim! We need more of you in this world

I'm wondering if you pull the antennae off GM trolls...will they grow back?Or if you decided to throw one of them into a croc pit full of the hungry,carnivorous reptiles,would they reject the food as substandard?

These tournaments really suck when Caro loses early. Tournaments where Caro isn't playing are more enjoyable.

That's what makes her loses so much worse for me, they kill every enjoyment in the tournament completely, I just can't be able to excited for any of the matches once she's out.

I was looking forward to this tournament for over a month but now I can barely get myself to turn the TV in, it feels pointless.

Has anyone noticed the on-screen chart on Eurosport explaining which tournaments are part of the OLYMPIC US Open series? (Sic!)

Does anyone have a screenshot?

Nicely done graphics but the headline was something like "Olympic US Open series", and certainly not "Olympus US Open series". But noone believes me, and I have no proof. It's no big deal, but I would still be glad if anyone had a screenshot.

Do they put something in the water in Canada? Horrible performance by Kvitova just now.. not as messy as Caro but similar in many aspects.

The top seeds are dropping like flies.

Hope it's the complete opposite scenario next tournament.

It's "I am a top seed...Get me out of here".

Petkovic is a lot better player on hard court than Vinci though. On the other hand, Kvitova's scoreline was a lot worse than Caro's (6-1 6-2 vs 6-4 7-5).
