Hey everyone! What a fantastic 1st day at the Rogers Cup! It all started in downtown Toronto where Ana Ivanovic and Caroline Wozniacki played a mini match. A very busy street (Younge) was closed for the occasion. A lot of fun and some great photos!
Then, I jumped into my car and headed to York University to attend the rest of the Monday afternoon session. I saw a couple of players practice including Kim Clijsters. I also saw some singles (Chakvetadze vs Bartoli) and doubles (Kirilenko/Vesnina vs Dubois/??) matches.
Finally, Monica Seles, my idol for many years, played an exhibition match on Centre Court with Aleksandra Wozniak, Serena Williams and Martina Navratilova. That made me think about all the great moments I've witnessed (live or on TV) in Monica's career. It was just great.
I have a lot photos. I will post some of them in a few minutes.

Day 3 highlights
> Predicted Safina's loss after 2nd set. Rezai played a fantastic match! She deserved this win all the way! I'd like to know why she isn't ranked higher in the WTA Tour rankings. She's a very good player. Powerful forehand shots. Really good in long rallies. I guess she chokes too often. But not this time.
> For all those who say women's tennis is a joke because Kim Clijsters can beat some of the top player... You probably haven't seen her play. She is incredible. She is really in top shape. She runs all the balls no matter how hard and no matter where on the court. She has powerful forehand shots. She will climb back to the top 10 that is for sure. Give her a few weeks and she'll be back among the best players on the tour. Today, she really deserved to win over Azarenka... and she did.
> My favorite lost tonight. Ana lost to qualifier Lucie Safarova. I can't believe she is losing against these low ranked players. It's sad. She has to work on her serves. On her horrible ball toss. She should stop practicing her forehand, her backhand, her returns until she can throw the ball in the air like every other player on the tour. I don't understand what happened to her. Is it her injury? Oh and she also lost her killer forehand. It's gone. No more of that. She hits some good backhand shots but her opponents probably don't fear her forehand anymore. I guess it,s her injury. Since then, everything has changed. Hope we will see the good old Ana someday soon.
> I have more photos but will post them tomorrow because I am really tired now and I have to go to bed! :-)

She's on her way up. At the beginning of the year she fell outside the top 100, but since Miami she has been playing at a much higher level. She has nothing to defend until next year so she's going to keep climbing in the rankings for the next few months.

What happened? She defeated world #1 player Dinara Safina and then she loses to Kleybanova?? I saw both matches and I can tell you that Aravane wasn't the same player on Thursday. She missed a lot of easy balls in the 2nd match. Very weird. I thought she would be more confident after a huge win.
