PYW - New Haven | Second Round | Please vote!

PYW - Pilot Pen Tennis



Welcome to New Haven! The PYW Tour has arrived at it's last warm up event for the US Open. Lots of players are trying to earn those last points before PYW celebrates it's first birthday AND the defending of points begins.

Let's have a look at the ranking of the remaining players in the Main Draw:


Quote:
PYW Ranking of the Participants:
*Rankings before Toronto & Bronx

1. Daniela Hantuchova
2. Elena Dementieva
8. Lindsay Davenport
10. Nadia Petrova
14. Patty Schnyder
20. Magdalena Maleeva
21. Nathalie Dechy
24. Jelena Jankovic
26. Marta Domachowska
32. Amelie Mauresmo
38. Anabel Medina Garrigues
38. Anna Lena Groenefeld
40. Elena Likhovtseva
42. Alicia Molik
45. Kveta Peschke
59. Shuai Peng

The Favourites:



Elena Dementieva RUS [4]



Patty Schnyder SUI [6]



Daniela Hantuchova SVK

Second round usually means the start of the tournament for the top seeds and in also in New Haven, it's like that. First seed and PYW # 8 Lindsay Davenport begins her bid for her second career title (the other one being the 2004 Masters) against PYW Stanford Champion Kveta Peschke. The Czech talent had to qualify for this event, but had no trouble whatsoever to dismiss much higher ranked Tatiana Golovin.

Elena Dementieva is also one of those players who is ranked high on the WTA Tour AND the PYW Tour. Seeded number 4 here, miss Dementieva is trying to overtake Daniela Hantuchova as world number one. Her quest starts with Shuai Peng, who had an easy first round match.

When talking about the current number one, Hantuchova, the word 'slump' comes into mind. The Slovakian beauty is playing her 6th tournament in the same amount of weeks, but hasn't been able to show the public why she is THE favourite. Five matches won, five matches lost is the sad balance one has to make up when looking at Daniela's hardcourttournaments. Will the defending US Open Champion be maulded once again?

But if you think that Daniela's slump is pretty bad, well, you surely have missed Amélie Mauresmo then. Once a steady toptenner in PYW, now she in on the verge of falling out of the top 50 when the US Open points come off. Her second round match here against Elena Likhovsteva isn't really brightfull also.

And last but not least: the 3rd title candidate according to the PYW President: Patty Schnyder. The enfant terrible of the tennis world barely had tot sweat when taking care of wildcard player Lisa Raymond. The Swiss lefty, who won her first title some weeks ago, has now the pleasure to come across Marta Domachowska. The number 26 in the world had the luck to be given a new chance due to the withdrawals of Kuznetsova and Myskina, and was ever so grateful with a hard fought win over Silvia Farina Elia.

All is explained, so it's now up to you to VOTE!


Second Round:

Lindsay Davenport USA [1] vs Kveta Peschke CZE [Q]
Daniela Hantuchova SVK
vs Patty Schnyder SUI [6]
Nadia Petrova RUS [5] vs Magdalena Maleeva BUL
Marta Domachowska POL [LL] vs Jelena Jankovic SCG [10]

Alicia Molik AUS [7] [WC] vs Anabel Medina Garrigues ESP
Shuai Peng CHN [Q]vs Elena Dementieva RUS [4]
Nathalie Dechy FRA [9] vs Anna Lena Groenefeld GER
Elena Likhovtseva RUS vs Amelie Mauresmo FRA [2]

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
