Its either a sign of the depth of the field or something less hopeful (failure of anyone not called Petrova to make a move?) but 13 of the top 32 did not play to their seeding into round 3. The players who might have got nearer to the top 10 on recent form or sheer ability like Bovina and Dementieva stalled out. The bottom of the top ten continued to look weak but the players behind them couldn't take advantage. Clay experts like Maggie and Ai have done better than people who actually like the stuff. Some players who have been off form like Eleni D have done better than the ones who were supposedly hot and some others will go on because their opponents in later rounds have fallen out of the draw. And, if you look at the heap of talent that was piling up in the late twenties and thirties in the rankings hardly anyone has made any real progress up the rankings. Unless your name is Clarissa or Monica, plus ca change, plus c'est la meme chose!

Sorry I was trying to be ironic (I think thats the word) describing Ai and Maggie as clay experts - its the fact that they are not and a lot of the people stalled or falling in the rankings are clay specialists that makes their success more surprising.
I see Ai has moved up again today. At this rate Lindsay, the other clay fanatic (irony intended) might win the whole thing.....(joking, poor Lindsay seems to have the additional problem of a non-working serve)
