Li and Stosur have confirmed


World No.5 Li Na & World No. 6 Sam Stosur have both confirmed that they will play the Rogers Cup next August!

“It is hard to believe that this will be my first time playing in Montreal. I have heard nothing but good things about the city and the tournament, so I am anxious to get there,” commented Stosur. “I had a great run to the final last year in Toronto and I hope to give myself another shot at the title in 2012.”

64 QD

how is this going to work? if the QD is 2 rounds that is 16Q :scratch:
they must be making it a 3 round QD this year in order to give lower ranked players a chance to play Q :oh:

It works according to the table presented at p 44 in WTA 2012 Official Rulebook:

If the MD Size is 48 (= all 16 seeds R1 bye) then QD Size is 64 with eight Qualifiers [2011: MD Size 56 (= eight top tier seeds R1 bye); QD 48 (12 Qualifiers)]. As a consequence, there are only three (regular) [WC]s (p 62) and 37 MD direct acceptences (37 Direct Aceptences + 3 [WC]s + 8 Qualifiers = 48).

Hearing from a few people that multiple players are planning to skip Canada after Olympics and just do Cincy as their only US Open warm-up.

Montreal got screwed again.

Who's choice was it to swap the week's around, Canada or Cincinnati? (talking about playing the third and fourth events of the US Open series) Montreal has had disaster written all over this year. I don't think they will get the top 10 commitment at all. Players won't be interested, quite a few 'shock' losses.

Was actually thinking of going but it will be a waste of money. Going to San Diego (wasn't planning on going to the tournament just taking a holiday there but might as well go a couple of days).

Makes sense really. Montreal obviously decided to start the tournament as late as possible in order to encourage players who went deep at the Olympics to compete here and also decided to leave announcing the draw until the last possible minute, being aware that it is probably inevitable that a couple of players will pull out regardless and it is better to hold the draw back until at least they know who is and who isn't going to turn up here.
