Elena, the winner of the Roger's Cup, went out today.

Jankovic, winner at Cincinnati, went out today.

Bartoli, who won Stanford, lost already.

Only Wozniacki (who won New Haven) and Pennetta (LA) remain. I'm not extremely optimistic about their chances to go far.

Assuming they don't make it to, say, the quarters; has that ever happened before? NONE of the winners of the summer hardcourt events going deep at the USO?

Also, all of the people to beat Serena over the summer are already out: Bammer, Dementieva and Stosur. Obviously this was the year to not do well in the warm up tournies.

Hope you are not suggesting the they should have not won those events in order to go far in the US Open

As for me , Im satisfied with the title in Toronto of Elena . I prefer a Premier 5 title and early GS exist instead of a GS semis or Quarters and Zero Premier 5 titles

When did I suggest such a thing? It's just an odd turn of events, no?

I must say I agree. Elena will probably end her career slamless, but she will be remembered for 15+ titles (presumably) most of which were elite or very good, GS SFs in every slam, her Olympic medals and two GS Fs...not her early losses.

I hated 2005 for that reason. Some reasonable semifinals in leadups, the USO SF, but no wins at all. Wasted year that was. 2009, regardless of this loss, will be remembered as her best or second best season.

Hopefully Pennetta and Caroline are able to make it into the QFs at least.

I'm more shocked that Sveta has won both her matches easily considering how badly she was struggling during the warm-ups!

I disagree on that point. I don't think people will remember Toronto as much as they'll remember the awesome semifinal struggle she had with Serena at Wimbledon this year (or, for instance, the semifinal on the '04 US Open where she def. Capriati). Semifinals MATTER!
