China Open Wrap Up:  Players of the week 

Djokovic - good win for Nole over Cillic. Rain delay worked in his favor as he handled the hard hitting Cillic in 2 rather uncomplicated sets

Kuznetsova - a year ago, she had a knack for coming out the loser in finals. Seems to have turned that around in 2009. She came into this match the heavy favorite but more importantly, she actually showed up to play and performed like the favorite.

Around the tour:

2 consecutive wildcard major winners? - made possible by Justine Henin who was granted a wild card entry into the 2010 Oz Open. Gives rise to the debate" "who would you rather face in your 1st round: wild card Clijsters or wild card Henin?"

Decisions, Decisions:  Amelie Mauresmo pulled the plug on her season a few days ago and refueled the question of retirement. Hate to see her go, but the legs appear tired and will has seemingly disapated. One hopes, she will give it one more year. 

This week: 

ATP Shanghai - all major players show up to play sans Roger

Safin - looking good in his 1st round. We hope to see more effort from the beloved Russian 

Nadal - lost to Cillic last week, looking to rebound  

DelPo - still riding the emotional high, lost in Tokyo but like Nadal, looking for the rebound 

Will be posting on Shanghai throughout the week. Stay Tuned.
