LOL Apparently they only started the draw about 4:30, hour & a quarter ago. Hope they get it up quick.


Some stuff starting to come out:



TORONTO - Vancouver's Rebecca Marino learned at Friday's women's Rogers Cup draw who her first round opponent will be.


The No. 41-ranked Canadian will take on No. 42 Ekaterina Makarova of Russia when the main singles draw gets underway Monday at Toronto's Rexall Centre.


Marino gained direct entry into the main draw when Romania's Alexandra Dulgheru withdrew due to injury. It will be her first main draw appearance at the tournament.


Canadian wild card entries Eugenie Bouchard of Westmount, Que., Stephanie Dubois of Laval, Que., and Aleksandra Wozniak of Blainville, Que., also learned their main draw opponents.


Bouchard is set to meet No. 11 Andrea Petkovic of Germany, while Wozniak will face No. 21 Shahar Peer of Israel. Dubois faces a qualifier in the first round.


Americans Venus and Serena Williams were on hand in Toronto Friday to assist with the draw. No. 34 Venus Williams will take on No. 18 Ana Ivanovic of Serbia in the first round, while Serena faces Ukraine's Alona Bondarenko.

Yea me too!! I remember during the AO 07 matches we were going back and forth on tournament thread and I suggested a chat function would be good thing! I guess someone was listening out there!!! Now if only the shoutbox would not make my computer crash! That would be rockin'!!


 Draw should be up soon, but I know they are doing the men's first and then the women's, so it may be a while yet before they post it up. PLEEEAAASSSSSE NO SERENA IN EARLY ROUNDS!!!!!

Masha is my #1!!

Well, there are certain threads running through this that smell other than random.


That said, we've seen a lot worse.

Decent draw for Masha!!!! No Serena until the semis, but Vika in the QF's. It would be nice to beat Vika, without her retiring this time. I'm stoked, gonna watch a lot of tennis on this vacation!!!

Masha is my #1!!

mariasharapova

Hello from Toronto, we arrived yesterday and had a good day of training today. I always forget what a nice city Toronto is and how nice the people are. They always seem so appreciative that the players have come to their home town. Do any of my Canadian fans have any restaurant suggestions? 2:16 AM 8/07/2011

Between court assignments & broadcaster bounce between Toronto & Montreal ATP, the streams projected so far today are only:



Monday (08 August) EDT 

11:00 Stosur - Morita (WTA Toronto)

13:00 Voskoboeva - Bartoli (WTA Toronto)

19:00 Jankovic - Görges (WTA Toronto)

Ah! BRITISH Eurosport will also show 2. Galina Voskoboeva vs. Marion Bartoli (NB 13.00hrs) 3. Simona Halep vs. Svetlana Kuznetsova (NB 15.00hrs)


 


Obviously Eurosport does not reach to the evening feature. http://real-tv-sport.com/channel-4.php


Monday 8th August Day 1 British Eurosport (16:00-21:45 BST) 


However, TTC does, thus live stream of JJ v Gorgeous. (TTC encores twice over the following 14 hours--if you get them in the States or else locate a Veetle or other TTC stream that continues to flow.)
There may also be some Canadian based options that are not visible as yet.


Still gotta wonder at this Anglo-American-German attitude. "Well, Görges may be the real draw, but she's just boobs, is all. And Petkovic may rank, but she's all weird & political & we're not sure she ain't really some Balkan freak. So y'all gotta accept the real German deal is nutjob Lisicki.


What's wrong with that picture?
