7 Comments for Serena Leads Full Cast at WTA Rogers Cup in Montreal

Humble Rafa Says:

It is not right to name a tournament after a current player. I can see naming a tennis tournament after greats like Brugeura and Costa after their immense contributions to the game.


Jack Lewis Says:

There is actual tennis being played in Washington… who knew?


Eric Says:

How is Ivanovic still outside the top 10? Women’s tennis is a mysterious land.


patrick chiazor Says:

Humble rafa, before u say what ur not sure of, do some research. Rogers cup was named after the company sponsoring the tournament, not Roger Federer.


Wog boy Says:

Ana is back in top 10 with this result.


SG1 Says:

Roger is very democratic about the tournament named after him. He allows others to win it quite often. Very humble of him. Don’t you think so HR?


SG1 Says:

Interested to see how Genie will do in her hometown. The field is really strong and assuming the top seeds don’t suddenly develop a rash of “mysterious” injuries, I believe that Genie will be tested early. She’s a tough cookie though and I expect her to be there at the end of the week.
