After the U.S. Open, there tends to be a bit of a let-down among tennis fans. All the majors have been played, a lot of players are injured, and maybe we're a bit tired, too. But this post-U.S. Open season has had plenty of drama. The Kremlin Cup has only just begun, and we still have the WTA Championships to be played. But consider, in this final part of the season, what has already occurred:
Petra Kvitova delivered a shockingly bad performance in the Tokyo semifinals.
Agnieszka Radwanska won both Beijing and Tokyo--just like that--making her the hottest player of the post-Flushing Meadows season.
Marion Bartoli, in a never-give-up attempt to get to Istanbul, won her second title of the year, in Osaka, and she beat Sam Stosur in the final to do it.
Petra Kvitova banished her clumsy doppelganger and won Linz "Kvitova-style."
Agnieszka Radwanska did the Petco Dance!
We still have few weeks to go, and we still have a Fed Cup final to be played, not to mention the events in Istanbul and Bali. Who knows what drama remains?
