    On Monday in Montreal, in the rain-postponed final of the Rogers Cup (aka the Canadian Open), this year's champion at Copenhagen and Ponte Vedra Beach, 20-year-old 2nd-seeded #3 (career-high: #2) Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark (residence: Monte Carlo, Monaco), defeated this year's Wimbledon finalist (and champion in Pattya City, Thailand), 25-year-old 8th-seeded #10 (career-high: #5) Vera Zvonareva from Moscow, Russia, 6-3, 6-2 (Caroline is with the Rogers Cup transparent racquet trophy; Vera is shown during her 3rd round win).

    Caroline's prize is $350,000; Vera's is $175,000.

    Caroline said: "I feel really good. It definitely gives you a lot of confidence, winning a tournament like this. It is such a huge tournament, almost all the top players were playing. It’s a great feeling for me to [leave] here as a winner." postmatch interview

    Both finalists played their semifinals on Monday morning. Vera said: "It was difficult [after] preparing myself to play against [Victoria Azarenka] the past couple of days. Vika and Caroline have absolute different styles of game... Against such a good player like Caroline, that makes you play a lot of balls, you have to keep your concentration level very high and it just wasn’t there today." postmatch interview

    Earlier on Monday in Montreal, in the rain-postponed semifinals, in a match that was begun on Saturday but stopped by rain after only 2 gamea and a point were played, Caroline defeated the champion two weeks ago in San Diego (and 2-time Grand Slam champ), 25-year-old 11th-seeded #14 (career-high: #2) Svetlana Kuznetsova of Russia (residence: like Caroline, Monte Carlo, Monaco), 6-2, 6-3.

    Svetlana said: "I have to give credit to Caroline. I think she played really well. She used a lot of her chances. In my game, I felt like it had been raining a week. In her game, I felt like she didn’t have any rain.

    "She played really well and I didn’t use my chances. I was a little slow. I think the games were very close. It was a good match before the U.S. Open... It was a good experience for me." postmatch interview

    In the other semifinal Vera defeated this year's champ at Stanford, 20-year-old 10th-seeded #12 (career-high: #6) Victoria Azarenka of Belarus (res: Scottsdale, Arizona), 7-6(6), 1-0 retired when Victoria could not continue due to a left foot blister.

    Victoria said: "My blister started in the warm-up, so I couldn’t have a proper warm-up. I had to play, it was a semi-final match and I knew that I would do the best I can. In the first set, I was managing, I was trying to not focus on the pain and try to play every point, point by point, but it was just too much.     "[I first noticed it] today, this morning. I’m surprised I could get a blister from sitting on my ass for two days... It is done and I just have to forget and try to move on and prepare for the US Open. My game was there; it’s just that my ability of moving was not there today." postmatch interview

    Caroline and Vera are now tied at 2-2 in career matches, but in their previous match Caroline had to retire due to injury, and in the one before that Vera's ankle was still ailing. Their only other meeting with both players healthy was on a Plexipave hardcourt in the quarterfinals last year at Indian Wells, when Vera defeated Caroline 6-4, 6-2.

    2009 US Open finalist Caroline is now 9-7 in WTA singles finals; she won at Copenhagen and Ponte Vedra Beach this year, and at New Haven, Eastbourne and Ponte Vedra Beach last year. Caroline has a 41-14 singles match record in 2010.

    2010 Wimbledon finalist Vera is now 10-14 in WTA singles finals; after she won at Indian Wells last year she tore ankle ligaments at Charleston, and had surgery to remove scar tissue in November. In January at the Australian Open Vera said it would still take a while before her ankle was fully healed; now she seems to be 100%. Vera has a 33-14 match record this year.

[The 2nd set] was 6-1, but I think every game was deuce. It was pretty hard. I just took a break and it worked for me." postmatch interview

    In the quarterfinals on Friday, Vera will face the champion last week in Cincinnati, Kim Clijsters. Kim leads Vera 5-1 in career matches, and all of their meetings have been on fast surfaces. Vera's lone win over Kim came the last time they met, on grass in the semifinals of this year's Championships at Wimbledon, when Vera defeated Kim 3-6, 6-4, 6-2.

    Vera said: "I think we always had tough matches, a lot of three-setters or very tough ones. I never managed to beat [Kim] and finally, at Wimbledon, I was able to play consistently.
    "I always believe I could beat anyone on the other side of the net. You have to come out there and not only know the game plan, but be able to execute it. It is very important to play your best to beat someone in the quarterfinals in such a big event."

I thought I served really well. I thought I stepped in and took the balls early and dictated the game. I thought that those things paid off today." postmatch interview

    Francesca said: "[Caroline] played very well, particularly with the serve. She served very good. And then I think I was not in very great shape physically... I was playing very tough matches. Today, I was not at a high level, physically, strong. Here, if you are not at 80% it’s tough. She played good." postmatch interview

    After the score reached 3-3 in the 2nd set, Vera won the next 8 games, taking the 2nd set and a 5-0 lead in the 3rd. Between those sets, Kim called for the trainer and had her left leg strapped.

    Kim said: "I don't like to give up. If something really bad happens, if you twist your ankle. But I was still able to move, still able to hit the ball, so I don't believe in giving up...
    "It's the hip. I was trying to get an MRI this weekend but the hospitals here are full, so I'm going to get it done at the beginning of the next week in New Jersey."

    Kim still leads Vera 5-2 in career matches, but Vera's two wins over Kim have come the last two times they have played. In their previous match, on grass in the semifinals of this year's Championships at Wimbledon, Vera defeated Kim 3-6, 6-4, 6-2.

    Marion led by 2 mini-breaks and held 4 set points at 6-2 in the 2nd set tiebreaker—but Victoria scored 5 straight points to win the match.

    Victoria said: "[Trailing 2-6 in the tiebreaker,] I thought I had to keep fighting and try to win one at a time and see how it goes. There were no other thoughts. Keep fighting and try to win and try to bring as many balls back as possible...
    "I think I played pretty good, especially in the first set. The second set was tougher. She was serving better, it was tough to get the rhythm. Overall it was pretty good. A little bit too many double faults. It was tough to adjust to the lights. I was playing all the matches during the day, and I had to adjust to the lights. Tomorrow I will be more consistent." postmatch interview

    Svetlana said: "[Jie] getting better and better. Before you could beat her easily but the last few times it's been harder and harder...
    "Winning matches makes you a totally different player. Without matches, you struggle a lot. Maybe you know what to do but you're not confident with some shots. There's only two or three points difference, but it makes a huge difference." postmatch interview

    Rain stopped play on Saturday in Montreal, with only a little more than 2 games played. During the delay, Caro and Sveta played a little soccer on center court to amuse hardy fans waiting out the light rain. The rain did not stop, so they were unable to continue the match. It rained all day on Sunday, so play did not resume until Monday at 10am, with Caroline leading Svetlana 2-0, 0-15.

    "I'm very happy we won this match. It was a tough match. As you can see from the score, it was really tight. I'm so happy to win another tournament with Flavia. It's unbelievable. We surprise ourselves every week.

    (August 12, 2010) 2006 Montreal champion, 2008 French Open champion, and former #1 Ana Ivanovic has declined a late wild card entry to the Rogers Cup due to comments made by the tournament director.
    Ana requested a wild card weeks ago, but was at first refused one. Tournament Director Eugene Lapierre, according to an AP story, then told a Montreal newspaper the 62nd-ranked player didn't deserve a wild card. On Tuesday, Lapierre changed his mind, but Ana declined the late wild card.
    At her website, Ana said: "“The fact that my original request was turned down isn’t really an issue: I would have been happy to play qualifying, but I felt that they kind of stepped over the line with this interview, making public our correspondence and even misrepresenting it. Unfortunately I don’t feel welcome at this tournament."
