    On Monday in Montreal, in the rain-postponed final of the Rogers Cup (the Canadian Open), 18-year-old 13th-seeded # 19 Ana Ivanovic of Serbia (residence: Basel, Switzerland) defeated 25-year-old 7th-seeded # 12 Martina Hingis from Trubbach, Switzerland, 6-2, 6-3 (Martina is shown during the match; Ana is shown with the see-through trophy after the match).

    Ana is now 2-0 in WTA singles finals; she won her previous title in Canberra in 2005. Martina, who has won 41 WTA singles titles (including 5 Grand Slam tourney titles) wanted this one very much; she is not content with having won only a single title (at the Tier I Italian Open) in 15 tournaments since her return to the WTA Tour after 3 years away due to ankle injuries. Despite the loss, former # 1 Martina's WTA ranking will be back in the top 10 this week for the first time since her injury layoff.

    Ana and Martina will now have a week to rest and prepare for the 2006 US Open.

    It's the bat!: Ana, who formerly chopped with a Wilson nTour axe, switched after Wimbledon to the Wilson nBlade bat, a control racquet with a 98 square inch head, which is slightly heavier, slightly stiffer, and balanced slightly more head-light than the nTour. It is the same model that Flavia Penneta uses.

    Montreal: The main draw for the Rogers AT&T Cup has 16 seeds, with 8 1st-round byes. There are 12 qualifiers and 4 wild cards in the main draw. Early round play begins at 11am local time; qualifying finals are on Sunday).
    Montreal (daylight savings) time is GMT (UCT, ZULU) minus 4 hours. That is Eastern Daylight Time in the US, =PDT plus 3 hours.

   
Early round play at Montreal begins at 11am local time.
This tourney has live scoring, including qualifying.

    The Rogers AT&T Cup, also known as the Canadian Open, is played alternating years in Montreal and Toronto. When the WTA is in Montreal, the ATP plays their version a week earlier in Toronto, and vice versa.

    Centre Court, "Uniprix Stadium," has seating for 11,437 people.

On Sunday in Montreal, Martina Hingis got in some serious practice time. Later on Sunday, 2005 Montreal champ Kim Clijsters, Sania Mirza, and Canadian wild card Aleksandra Wozniak goofed off at the players fashion show. And on Monday Nicole Vaidisova, in the players lounge, showed all the symptoms of being pretty, 17, and a top-ten player.

Cambodia-born former WTA #28 Patricia Hy-Boulais, who became a Canadian citizen in 1991, reached the Canadian Open quarterfinals in Montreal in 1992, and won her last Canadian Open match in 1995, 11 years ago.

    2005 US Open champ Kim missed most of the 2nd half of the 2004 season due to left wrist injuries. Since then, Kim said: "I definitely have days where it feels a lot stiffer, but not in a way where it restricts me. I warm it up, and then that's fine when I get out there-- but not like this." Kim won 9 tourneys in 2005.
    Kim said: "Halfway through the first set I just started feeling my backhand, I couldn't get down with my racquet. I couldn't produce the spin that I normally do. It was fine because [Stephanie is] not a hard hitter, it didn't have that big of an impact. But then I started slicing and just trying to protect, it kind of got worse and just stiffened up and then I called the trainer out. Obviously with the history that I have with my wrist, it's something that really worries me. These next few weeks are really important for me. Falling on it definitely didn't help, either. I'm going to have some more tests done tomorrow, too, and I'll get to know more." postmatch interview

    (Aug 18, 2006) 2005 US Open champion and WTA # 2 Kim Clijsters will miss the 2006 US Open because of a left wrist injury. Kim will be out of action for at least several weeks, and possibly two months, which means she is also likely to miss the Belgium v Italy Fed Cup final in September.
    An MRI exam and X-ray showed the injury is worse than originally believed. Kim is returning to Belgium for more tests. AP story

    Nadia won three substantial tourneys in a row during clay court season, at Amelia Island, Charleston, and Berlin. Then she was sidelined by injury, and has struggled since, losing 4 matches in a row, two of them to Anna Chakvetadze. Hopefully Nadia will "find her rhythm" again soon. Petrova record

    Nadia said: "It's really hard for me to hold my concentration from the beginning to the end. I started making some unforced errors, which is very unusual for me and I'm getting quite disappointed about it. I started thinking 'what's happening' and that takes so much energy away from me and also it takes my focus from the match."

    Martina said: "I don't think it was an easy match from the beginning. I've never played [Mara] before. I knew what she was going to be like, but it's not so easy to always try to control those wide shots. And she served very well, a very high percentage and it was hard to break her. I think overall it was a good match to win in straight sets."

    Martina trailed 1-4 in the 2nd set--then Mara took a medical timeout. During the break Martina asked her mother and coach Melanie Molitor to come on court, which is being permitted during breaks in this tourney for the first time as part of a WTA trial of on-court coaching, which is normally prohibited by the rules.
    Martina said: "It was just to loosen up. [My mother] knows my game inside and out and sometimes when you have an overview from the outside, it helps. She told me just try to play your game."

I still have a long career ahead of me. I'm 17 and my health is my No. 1 priority."

Martina serving, Svetlana's primary weapon, her forehand drive, Martina's backhand, and after match point

    Martina said: "[Svetlana] played some unbelievable points, then she had a few lacking shots; that gave me hope over and over again to come back into the match. I knew I had to come up with the best in me so I did. Sometimes, she was looking for too much of a risk because she knew she had to go for the winner otherwise I would keep hitting it back."

    It was Svetlana's first tourney since Wimbledon. In her Montreal player's blog Svetlana said: "If I had closed it out in the first set it would have been a different match. But I wasn't really seeing the ball that well, it was also my first night match in a while, so it was tough...
    "I think Martina is playing really well. Even though when I play her it depends on me a lot, she's playing very consistently, and it's very interesting to play her. It's good to have her back. She's really friendly and I get along well with her.
    "So to wind down tonight I might just have a glass of wine and relax, then have an easy day on Saturday, and leave for New Haven. On Sunday I'll start practicing for New Haven. I'll probably play my first round on Monday because I'm up against a qualifier."

    Dinara said: "I'm glad that I could keep my nerves inside and play really solid today. The next match is going to be really tough; it will be a good match. And I'm going to have a look a little bit to see how they are playing."

    It was 33-year-old Nicole's first Tier I quarterfinal. Nicole said: "I'm very proud of my achievement this week. Unfortunately, today I just didn't have much energy out there and I was really struggling to get out for every point. But, all credit to Dinara. She didn't really give me a chance to get into the match."

    Anna said: "I wanted to retire in the end of the set, but then I felt okay, so I tried to play; but if something is bothering you, you can't play. I felt it yesterday and I had treatment but it wasn't bad and in practice I felt okay. But in the start of the first set I felt something wrong with my hand. It was really stiff and hurting when I served and hit forehands.
    "I thought I could win; if I didn't, I'd never go to the court. And I told Martina that the next time I'll be ready, and it'll be a tougher match. I'm really sad because I knew that I could be in the finals."
    About a few people booing when she left the court, Anna said: "People are upset because there were so many withdrawals this week. I know it was not personal. I wish I could have played until the end, but I just couldn't." post-match interview

    Martina said: "It's kind of disappointing to win a match like this, but [Anna] continued, so you still have to keep the focus, because you don't know how much it's hurting and how much she still can play. I had never played her before. And those down-the-line backhands were really quite impressive."
    About her potential opponents in the final, Martina said: "[Dinara and I] played in the finals of Rome, we've played also in Indian Wells on hard court. Both times I was successful. So definitely if I would play her, I'm looking forward to it... And against Ana, I've never played her; a very good player, a very high potential. She's impressed definitely this week. You can see that she's training hard, she has the fitness and a new coach and it must be working for her." post-match interview

The match did not resume until 4pm, and Ana then won three quick games in succession to finish the match in front of almost empty stands. The final was postponed to Monday at 2pm.

    Ana said: "We had to be here the whole morning so I think it was a little bit hard, but it was the same for both of us. I'm really happy the way I played these three games because it was important and I'm just happy I took the opportunities I had and I could win this match. It feels much better."

    (Aug 13, 2006) # 4 Maria Sharapova withdrew from the Rogers AT&T Cup late Saturday (due to general fatigue), causing a major rearrangement of the drawsheet. Maria is tuckered out after 9 matches in 13 days, and wants to be ready for that festival in Flushing Meadows.

    (Aug 11, 2006) # 1 Amelie Mauresmo (right shoulder strain), # 3 Justine Henin-Hardenne (right knee), # 8 Patty Schnyder (reason unknown), # 13 Mary Pierce (foot?) and # 30 Venus Williams (left wrist) have all withdrawn from the Rogers AT&T Cup--but there is still a good field.
