Also, if I recall correctly Serena won last year in rogers cup that is why I find it interesting that she wanted to defend a small tournament like stansford and not a bigger one like Rogers cup.
Apparently Serena said Stanford had more sentimental value, as it's where she first won a title after the horrible time she had after Wimbledon 2010.

Re: Hard Court Season - Rogers Cup in Montreal

These hard courts are fast no? So I would fancy her chances if she can be fully motivated. If she carries her grass form on to the hard courts she can do very well as she won't have odd and low bounces. McHale will be a test IMO, at least that's who I'm assuming she'll play first. The rest of the players in her quarter are struggling now.

Not sure how I would feel about playing Cinci as well. The season is long and realistically Maria has played and won enough matches this season that she could probably do without any warm up tournaments. Not that she should be thinking like that of course.

I'm still not sure what to expect, I get the feeling she loves playing in Cinci but she won't play 3 weeks straight and I don't want a half-assed showing here considering how amazing and consistent the year has been.

Don't you think Maria is eager to erase Olympics final with good showings in both Montreal and Cincy?

Playing 3 weeks in a row shouldn't be a big deal, especially now Maria is back to her home turf of North America.

Thursday night session would be my guess. Maria played both night sessions last year in Toronto.

I would really like to help you

When I bought tickets for Rome (6 months before the tournament lol) I just had to guess where she would play and I picked the CC... When I discovered the day before that she was going to be on the other court I DIED FOR 3 SECONDS but then the next day I found out that my tickets were valid for that court too. So... isn't there such a thing in Rogers Cup? If there are 2 main courts you should be sure she's on one of those, and my guess would be night session for the first rounds they'll keep all the most important players for the night.
Plus, she'll probably play vs McHale, I know it's not USA but I guess she has more attire than some european player: another reason to go for the night session?

I'm 100% sure she'll be on the Center Court. It's just the day and session that's an issue.

Meanwhile Galina has been kicked out from Rezai, we're not having the rematch.

Re: Hard Court Season - Rogers Cup in Montreal

After her first match it's an excellent draw to the SF's at least.

Hope she isn't too tired, and really goes for it.

Once again, I have to say this... one match at a time. Dont consider anything as a given. Maria is not yet in the semi final and Vika isnt herself as well.

In fact I would just advise everyone to hold the expectations to a low... most players are tired coming to Montreal so anything is possible and understandable.

Nothing is written in stone. Maria has lots of matches before she is facing Vika and the same applies to Vika as well and they may not meet at all.

All I hope for is that Maria has enough fuel in the tank to play her best tennis and do well. Davai Maria!
