Only two second round matches were played today in Toronto, and both resulted in major upsets. Sam Stosur defeated 6th seed Svetlana Kuznetsova 6-4, 6-3, and qualifier Kateryna Bondarenko defeated 3rd seed Venus Williams 1-6, 7-5, 6-4.
Kaia Kanepi had another "good" loss, this time going out 6-4, 7-6 to Lucie Safarova. Kanepi is having a poor season, but her last few matches have been rather competitive. Yaroslava Shvedova slipped past Daniela Hantuchova, 7-6, 7-6, and Shahar Peer played a typically long Peer match, lasting three hours. She defeated Monica Niculescu, 6-4, 4-6, 7-6.
In doubles, 7th seeds Anna-Lena Groenefeld and Patty Schnyder served for the match twice in the second set in their first round competition with Vera Dushevina and Anastasia Rodionova--and twice they were broken. Dushevina and Rodionova won the match 3-6, 7-6, 10-7. Yan Zi and Zheng Jie were defeated by Agnieszka Radwanska and Caroline Wozniacki, and 8th-seeded Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Nadia Petrova were upset by Alisa Kleybanova and Ekaterina Makarova.
