The 2003 Canadian Open!
Welcome to Canada! This is the final week before the US Open, and everything falls on the line. The battle for the top seed is once again between Elena Dementieva (the current #1, in her first week) and Daniela Hantuchova (the current #2, and who has been #1 since the Australian). Whoever does better this week should be seeded #1 at the US Open.

Other contenders are Venus Williams, who is playing her best tennis of the year in the last two weeks. Kim Clijsters has just come off a final appearance. Anna Kournikova is the Wimbledon champ. Martina Hingis has never won a title, but is very consistent.

Can Ashley Harkleroad, Lindsay Davenport, Tamarine Tanasugarn, Serena Williams and Monica Seles get their games together?

And Welcome Alicia Molik to the tour!

Singles Draw!

Anna Kournikova in Canadian Open


Anna Kournikova arrived on Saturday in Toronto, to start preparing and training for the Canadian Open. "I have been practising with Harold for the hardcourt season. I'm still not at my best like in Wimbledon, but I'm getting better and I think I'll be ready for the US OPEN. I'm also looking for some good results in the doubles with Monica."​

The Canadian Open will begin on Tuesday, due to the board being "closed"

Y'all have until Tuesday to send in points. For those who have sent points, I still have them, but if you want to change them send me a new points

Back to the first plan: Play will begin on Monday. A few people didn't send points, and it's not fair to walk over because the board was down. And others didn't understand the point system

Canadian Open will begin on Tuesday. :)

2 people have points to send in...and they are running out of time (the good news is I have their points from 2 weeks ago, the bad news is they really need to change their game plans)

What a close match! Both players had pretty much the same game plan. Kournikova just was a tad more consistent, especially late in the sets. I hope Ashley learns and comes out with a new plan for the US Open. Wimbledon champ moves on to face World's #1 in the quarters

Welcome to the tour Alicia! In her debute, she totally trashes Seles. I feel terrible for Monica though, as she finally changed her game plan. Alicia is going for the big bang game plan...and it will be interesting to see if it works against the "consistent" game this week. Monica can learn from this...she has to be MORE aggressive when she wants to. Don't give up Monica, you're almost there (despite this scoreline). Alicia will face Hingis in the quarters

Well despite the close scoreline, Serena was really in control of the entire match. Either she was VERY aggressive, or she let Tami do all the work. Serena seems content with this game plan. Tami was very consistent, but still has to be a tad more aggressive in a few games. Serena and Venus in the quarters.

Kim made the finals last week, while Davenport has been struggling, so I consider this an upset. Clijsters and Davenport had pretty much the same game plan...except Clijsters played HORRIBLE early in the second set. She'll have to correct that in the US Open. Staying mentally tough. But congrats ladies...it was a well played match! Lindsay faces #2 Dani Hantuchova in the quarters
