PYW - US Open | Fourth Round | Please vote!

PYW - US Open



It's that time of the year again. The final Grand Slam is presenting itself; many main draw players are more than eager to display their skills in the coming week.


Quote:
Ranking Points:

W - 650
F - 456
SF - 292
QF - 162
R16 - 90
R32 - 56
R64 - 32
R128 - 5
Qualifier - 10 *
Q3 - 5
Q2 - 2
Q1 - 1

* If a qualifier loses in the first round of the main draw, she receives no first round points as usual



Note:

This is a special week in the history of PYW. The US Open will be the first event where players have to defend points they earned at last year's event at Flushing Meadows.

It is also very special, because players will, for the first time, earn bonus points for beating their opponents. The amount of points will depend on the opponent's ranking.



The Top Favourites



Kim Clijsters BEL [4]



Lindsay Davenport USA [2]



Elena Dementieva RUS [6]



Daniela Hantuchova SVK [20]



Anastasia Myskina RUS [13]



Mary Pierce FRA [12]

The PYW US Open has suffered it's biggest upset in the third round. As tipped as THE title candidate by many, Elena Dementieva took a dive in the third round. The newly number one got an early lead in her match against compatriot Anna Chakvetadze, then suffered a huge blow in the second and finally led a heart-breaking loss in the third set tiebreak. With this exit, Dementieva equals her US Open record from last year when she lost to Nathalie Dechy. Anna gets a fourth round place plus 200 bonus points!

With the straight sets loss of first seed Maria Sharapova to three time tournament winner Flavia Pennetta and Amelie's easy defeat by the hands of Anna-Lena Grönefeld, Kim Clijsters remains as the highest seed left. The Belgian winner of Roland Garros had little trouble with her ex-doubles partner Ai Sugiyama, but will have to face her first real test today. Will she ace Ana Ivanovic?

But, as many know, highest seed doesn't mean highest PYW ranked player. We already mentioned the loss of Dementieva, wich results in Daniela Hantuchova being the top ranked player left. The Slovak player endured a dismall hardcourt summer, but looks to have refound her form wich brought her to Grand Slam Glory last year. A win against Shuai Peng would bring her only three matches away from repeating that feat.

Besides Shuai Peng, there's only one unseeded player left in this fourth round: Iveta Benesova. The Czech took away the last home player in the last round and will be looking to earn as many points before starting the indoor season, in wich she won quite a lot of points.

French 12th seed Mary Pierce and compatriot Tatiana Golovin are also still in our midst. The blonde bombers each ousted an Eastern European girl (Jankovic and Koukalova respectively), but took a different road to do so. While Tatiana was the first to finish her match in the third round, Mary had to overcome a second set loss, but eventually prevailed. A much wanted win for Mary, seeing that she has final points to defend here!

Vote now for who you want to reach the quarterfinals!


Fourth Round:

Flavia Pennetta ITA [28] vs Alicia Molik AUS [14]
Nadia Petrova RUS [9] vs Iveta Benesova CZE
Kim Clijsters BEL [4] vs Ana Ivanovic SCG [18]
Daniela Hantuchova SVK [20] vs Shuai Peng CHN

Gisela Dulko ARG [27] vs Mary Pierce FRA [12]
Anastasia Myskina RUS [13] vs Anna-Lena Grönefeld GER [31]
Anna Chakvetadze RUS [29] vs Patty Schnyder SUI [11]
Tatiana Golovin FRA [23] vs Anabel Medina Garrigues ESP [32]

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
