Welcome to Los Angeles, California for this week's stop. Last week saw Alize Cornet crowned as champion for the second week in a row. Can she continue her hot streak here and make it 3 in a row, or will someone else emerge victorious?

Peer :sobbing: I always lose to her. Personally, I think she needs gender testing - but Chris refuses to go down there! :p

:weirdo: Why?!!

You retire and want to be removed from ranking and the race too? :(

Justin SW
Aug 29th, 2009, 03:07 PM
Venus is the best and Serena needs a big SIS :sobbing:

Bartosh

:weirdo: Why?!!

You retire and want to be removed from ranking and the race too? :(

yes :) you can leave her ranking so she'll try to play at YEC

but she can barely win matches these days :) it's disgusting for best world No.1 in the history ;) Vee may return for all tournaments in the next season but now she clearly needs a break :)

Sean.
Aug 29th, 2009, 03:31 PM
She's just copying her idol, Cornet :shrug: Don't worry Vee will be back before long!

By following in Alizé's footsteps she's hoping one day to be able to reach Alizé level. ;)

champion88
Aug 29th, 2009, 03:54 PM
Evn if you lose every 1st round at least you are still getting some points on the board - surely that's better than zero..... and some new points may help!! :ras:

omg I hope my fat sister Serena will take my place in the draw :inlove: family decision :inlove:

Daniela belongs to No.1? :spit: Venus' helping hand is the only way to make Daniela No.1 again :)

Vaidisova def. Azarenka 6-0 7-5


Well done to Vaidisova who claims the Los Angeles title this week, taking out the #2 and #3 seeds in the process. She will be looking to build on this for the US Open. This week was somewhat of a resurgence for Azarenka who has really struggled this season. Could she be playing her way into form just in time for the US Open in a couple of weeks time?
