Kateryna Bondarenko beats Venus Williams in the second round of Rogers Cup

Third seeded player Venus Williams has been beaten at the hand of Kateryna Bondarenko by 1-6, 7-5 and 6-4. This defeat came in the second round of the Rogers Cup which took place in Toronto. Her opponent player Kateryna Bondarenko is now number 64 seeded player. For the first time, she took part at this tournament since 1997. It was obviously an early exit for Venus Williams. She was top favorite player in this tournament. So, her early exit means that this tournament has lost half of the excitement. However, 11th seeded payer Ana Ivanovic has moved one step ahead after beating the Magdalena Rybarikova by 2-6, 6-3, 6-2. Ivanovic is one of the most favorite and probable players to have won the trophy.
