PYW - Toronto | Third Round | Please vote!

PYW - Rogers Cup



Welcome to Toronto! This year the Rogers Cup is part of the PYW Tour for the first time. Next year, the city of Montréal will play host to all these PYW stars and their supporters, but for now Toronto takes the honours.

Twelve qualifiers and three lucky losers made it to the main draw, where a total of 56 players will compete for the hotly contested title. It's one of the final tournaments in the PYW season. The start of the US Open will also mean the start of a new PYW season, so this is the final chance to improve the rankings, before points will have to be defended.

All top 10 players besides Ai Sugiyama prevailed in the second round, but will they do it again?

Fabulous Four No More

Toronto has lost a member of it's self proclaimed Fabulous Four... to another member. Maria Kirilenko is the one the Canadian public won't be cheering for in the third round. The Russian teenager, who holds the record of most finals played on grass [2 ], went out to world #33 Ana Ivanovic. The Serbian 12th seed had some trouble with 'little Masha' in the first, but finished it off in style. Ana now comes across a PYW top 5 player: Kim Clijsters.

Besides the Belgian, the Rogers Cup offers us another batch of 3 top 5 players: number one Daniela Hantuchova is playing her 5th straight week, but, unlike a real number one, the Slovakian has only won 1 match per tournament. Will Anastasia Myskina be the donator of her 5th hardcourt loss? Things aren't looking too sunny for the US Open later this month.

And while China is celebrating the victories of Jie Zheng and Na Li, Canada is mourning. After the losses of decent ITF players Maureen Drake and Marie Eve Pelletier in the first round, it was time for another Canadian to go. Wildcard player Stephanie Dubois fought for what she's worth, but sadly it wasn't enough against the more experienced Flavia Pennetta, who already won 3 PYW tournaments, albeit all on clay.

Another hit that the tournament directors had to endure was the loss of 3rd seed Svetlana Kuznetsova and 4th seed Justine Henin-Hardenne. However, although they are ranked high in real life, in the wonderfull world of PYW, they aren't even top 30 material. Not even in the top 70, in Justine's case. This fact was once again clearly proven by Lucie Safarova and Roland Garros finalist Evgenia Linetskaya.

After all this being said, it's time for you to VOTE once more. Guide your favourite player one step closer to the Rogers Cup title.


Third Round:

Lucie Safarova CZE [Q] vs Tatiana Golovin FRA [16]
Daniela Hantuchova SVK [13] vs Anastasia Myskina RUS [9]
Serena Williams USA [5] vs Flavia Pennetta ITA [14]
Ana Ivanovic SCG [12] vs Kim Clijsters BEL [7]

Mary Pierce FRA [8] vs Anna Chakvetadze RUS
Jie Zheng CHN [Q] vs Evgenia Linetskaya RUS
Nadia Petrova RUS [6] vs Na Li CHN
Anna-Lena Grönefeld GER vs Dally Randriantefy MAD

I know I've been a liar
And I know I've been a fool
I hope we didn't break it
But I'm glad we broke the rules
My cave is deep now
Yet your light is shining through
I cover my eyes
Still all I see is you
