There is a thief on the O.W.T Tour!

Today 18-year-old French tennis player Alizé Cornet has alerted the police to the fact there have been a series of thefts on the O.W.T.T. She gave an interview to tell us more:

Reporter: So Alizé what can you tell us?

Well obviously not that much the police don’t want me to tell you everything I’ve told them, naturally. However shocking as it may sound something very personal and valuable to me as been stolen.

Reporter: When did this theft take place do you think?

I know exactly when it was taken. Right after my after my R16 match last week in Stanford, I left it in the changing rooms while I went to shower and then when I next came to use it, it was gone.

Reporter: It was taken in the changing room! But that must mean it was another player who stole it. Are there any players on the tour that would do that?

Well obviously there are. I didn’t want to believe it myself at 1st but you cannot deny the evidence, unfortunately I’ve learnt not all players are as nice as they seem in the media, believe you me. The press has no idea what goes on behind closed doors. I won’t mention any names though.

Reporter: Do you think the theft has affected your tennis?

Oh yes, most definitely. Without a doubt. No question about it. In fact I believe that may have been part of the thief’s motive! Sabotage!

Reporter: You mentioned a series of thefts, meaning there are others?

Yes, this is not a one off. I so far am the only one brave enough to have come forward. Both Caroline Wozniaki and Maria Sharapova have been robbed to, though at the moment they believe the items in question are merely lost. However they are suffering as much as I am.

Reporter: That’s it you can’t keep us in suspense any longer. What has been stolen from you?

Well I’m not sure the police would like this but someone has stolen my game! Yes, that’s right while I was not looking they have taken my talent and added it to their own! I can only hope it is returned safely soon before it is permanently mutilated and damaged by some other player

Well what a shock. While Miss Cornet did not mention any players she must have mentioned to the police some suspects. We ourselves have done some investigating. By our reasoning after a player has added the considerable talent of Alizé along with Miss Wozniaki and Sharapova to their game their results must have taken a turn for the better recently.

Strangely enough to coincide with the thefts Lindsay Davenport, a player notorious for her dislike of Alizé, has managed to break a string of early losses to make the Montreal final. Also worth a mention is the startling form of Jelena Jankovic since Stanford, causing her to go #1 in the USO Series. Perhaps by far the most suspicious however is the rise of Miss Benesova, who made some strange remarks at the net to Alizé about “beating her at her own game” today. Miss Benesova managed to reach the semi final of her 1st Tier I tornament, showing form and talent she has never displayed before but must have got from somewhere!

There are 40 players you could have a R64 when the top 12 seeds get BYEs and add 12 more CP?

Or you could try sending out PMs and advertising in other games to get those extra players to have a full R64

Wozniacki finally wins

http://dhbvg87.sakura.ne.jp/Gallery/photo239/050409-1105.jpg


After loosing her match against Cibulkova in the semifinal of Stanford, Wozniacki suffered two first round lost, against Jankovic and Safina. Caroline wasn't the same player as she was in Wimbledon and Stanford. Maybe the pressure was too much for herself?
"Well, I am really dissapointed with the past two weeks. I definitely thinks my game improved, but my results didn't. So, it was really bad moments for me. I really wanted to prove to everyone that my win at Wimbledon wasn't a fluke at all. I also wanted to finish in the Top 3 players during the US Open series, which I won't because of these stupid losses. Well, I have to say I put a lot of pressure on me. I had such big expectations after my Wimbledon win and I really wanted to qualify for the YEC at the end of the season. So, that's mean to be a Top 8 player at the end of the season, when I arrived at the middle of it. You know, you can definitely see that I put TOO much pressure on me. I will take tournament by tournament and match by match now. I'll stop to look too far in the future." said Wozniacki.
For the last tournament before the US Open, New Haven, Caroline had to face Serena Williams, 7th seed, in the first round here. This tournament is really important for everyone because it's the last warm up before the US Open, it's the last chance to get a seed status at the Us Open and it's the last chance to earn points for the famous US Open series.
"Well, I really wanted to win this match to arrive at the US Open with great sensations. I also wanted to be a seed at the US Open because I don't want to face a Top player in the first round, it would suck. Serena and I played a really great match today. Both of us played solid and agressive tennis. It was a tough match and it lasted for 2 hours and 21 minutes. Congrats to her for her great performance. Both of us could have won today but I think I won the crucial points. Next for me is Salerni. I've never played against her before so I really don't know if I have a chance to win this match. But I think I can win this match. I,ll try to impose my game plan and go for my shots early in the rallies. HOpe for the best now." said Caroline.

Great turnaround from Benesova here after trailing a set and 4-0. She rallied back to win 12 games in a row, leaving Vera in tears! Still a great show from Vera, qualifying and taking out Dementieva. Benesova moves on in style though to the semis, and is looking very determined this week!

Golovin played a great second set but was unable to sustain her form. She got off to a slow start in the first set which really cost her. Dulko is back in the semis and is dangerous when she goes this deep. She will take on Benesova the qualifier in the semis.

Topsy turvy start from these two, but a tense third set, with an early trade of breaks before going toe to toe to 4-4, with Dechy getting the crucial break as Olaru served at 4-5. Great win for Dechy in taking out last week's champ. She moves on to another semi, and is still on the quest for her first title.

The CT was decisive here, with Salerni winning 7-6 in the decider if it had gone the other way. Real tough luck for her, as she would have also beaten Dulko in the final to win her first title :hug: - but Dechy seems to love playing in the USA - she makes her 4th final on American soil, but is still looking for her first title. She will face Dulko later today.

Dulko wins her third title, adding to Sydney and Berlin. Dechy was so close to her first title - she would have won 7-5 2-6 6-3 if she had wont he first CT. She will bea big contender next week at the Open though if she can iron out a couple of kinks in her game. She shouldn't be too disappointed though, as she only made the final by virtue of a CT. Her place in the top 3 of the US Series Race is also now confirmed ;)
