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:
PYW Ranking of the Participants: *Rankings before Toronto & Bronx
2. Elena Dementieva
8. Lindsay Davenport
20. Magdalena Maleeva
38. Anna Lena Groenefeld
Elena Dementieva RUS 
Patty Schnyder SUI 
Daniela Hantuchova SVK
We have already reached the semifinals and at this point only one of the favourites of our president CooCooCachoo is still standing. World number one in PYW Daniela Hantuchova proves she will get a tough time defending her US Open title from last year. She won the first set against top American Lindsay Davenport, but then let her guard down so Lindsay could take over again.
Tenth seed Jelena Jankovic foughthard to try and see off experienced Bulgarian Magdalena Maleeva. After dropping the first set, she bageled Maleeva, who did not get nervous though. Maleeva took the third set comfortably.
World number two Elena Dementieva also had no easy task when playing Australia's Alicia Molik. She lost the first set easily and seemed on her way out. It was her fighting spirit though that prevailed. She won the second and third set with one break only, but it was enough.
The last match was between unseeded players. Anna-Lena Groenefeld however showed she may very well become a big force in PYW. She had no trouble whatsoever with Elena Likhovtseva, dropping only four games.
All is explained, so it's now up to you to VOTE!

and James, those were CCC favourites I'm only the VICE-president
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
