The first round of the womens and mens tournament will conclude in Cincy today. The highlights so far have seen Andy Roddick fall to Jeremy Chardy, Jelena Jankovic end up on the wrong side once again of a total epic as she wasted five match points against Peng Shuai, and Venus Williams edging Maria Kirilenko in three sets, having served for the match twice in the second set.
So far my predictions have been solid; unfortunately I have lost 2 quarter-finalists from the womens draw (Kirilenko and Wickmayer) but apart from that, successfully predicted first round wins for Ekaterina Makarova, Camila Giorgi, Peng Shuai and Daniela Hantuchova.
