Schiavone, Bondarenko & Sharapova score upsets in Toronto

In the first day of Rogers Cup play, three seeded players were eliminated from competition. 15th seeded Amelie Mauresmo lost (again) to Francesca Schiavone, 13th seeded Marion Bartoli lost to Alona Bondarenko, and number 8 seed Nadia Petrova was defeated by Maria Sharapova.

Bartoli, who won the Stanford tournament--the first of the U.S. Open Series contests--lost to Kim Clijsters in the first round in Cincinnati last week.

Anabel Medina Garrigues, who has not done well at all in singles this season, also went out in the first round, to Patty Schnyder.
