Benesova Beat's JJ

The No.1 seed at the Rogers Cup will not be holding the trophy this year, after Jelena Jankovic lost out to Iveta Benesova in her opening match at the $2-million tournament.

Jankovic, ranked No.3 in the world, has been working her way back from injuries the last few weeks - she hurt her back at Wimbledon and sprained her ankle in Portoroz - and the lack of match play showed, as she squandered a 5-3 first set lead and eventually went down to Benesova, a qualifier into the draw, 7-6(3) 6-3.

"I wasn't on my game, especially on the return. I couldn't stay in the points long and made a lot of errors. I just didn't feel like myself out there," Jankovic said. "I haven't been playing well for the last couple tournaments. I did my best out there."

In the other two night matches, No.8 seed Vera Zvonareva cruised past Yaroslava Shvedova, 6-2 6-1, and No.9 seed Li Na beat Jarmila Groth almost as handily, 6-3 6-2.

I had JJ having a good summer and there goes my predictions again haha. I think JJ rushed coming back from the Wimbledon injury and now she is paying the price. Her tendencies are to play a lot of tournaments, I would suggest JJ no more tournaments until U.S. Open. Yeah, like she will listen. I think the New Haven tournament is left.

"The Big Stuffed Bunny" is playing doubles with Dani H. I don't view her as a good doubles player. I hope Dani is giving "The Bunny" tips on doubles and modeling.

I have Pennetta upsetting "The Big Stuffed Bunny" in the third round.

Dani H. and "The Bunny" lost their doubles second round match. I'm not surprised.
