WTA Diary: Rogers' Cup
Shelby Rogers

Every week there's a lot happening on the WTA - on the court, off the court, by the numbers, even a few tweets... catch up on it all in this week's WTA Diary.

Party Pooper
Shelby Rogers clearly didn't get the memo about Eugenie Bouchard's homecoming party.

On Tuesday evening, the qualifier stunned Bouchard - and a packed Canadian crowd - over three topsy-turvy sets to reach the third round of the Rogers Cup. The key to her victory? Staying in 'the zone'.

"This was my first experience in an atmosphere like this - the whole stadium cheering for one person," Rogers said. "But I was just trying to stay in my little zone, zone it out. I knew she would raise her level after the first set. She has so many weapons. And she played amazing in the second set... In the third set I just took it one point at a time and stuck to my routines."

When The Lights Go Out
A power cut in Montréal took the Rogers Cup back to the old school for much of Tuesday afternoon, with players, umpires, staff and spectators robbed of their usual array of electrical gizmos.

¡Viva España!
Garbiñe Muguruza and Carla Suárez Navarro's doubles partnership may still be in its infancy, but a run of good results has thrust them into contention for a place at the BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore presented by SC Global.

Blue Is The Color
Petra Kvitova's footballing allegiance was one of several revelations to come out of the latest WTA Live All Access Hour presented by Xerox
