De Villiers finally makes a popular decision

Anna Chakvetadze
Safarova won, Fish won, Benesova won, Chakvetadze won, Cornet beat Hantuchova and Karatancheva crashed out of Open qualifying.

Good wins for the Woz against Bartoli and Cornet against Dani.

De Villiers finally accepted that the ATP is not a Mickey Mouse organisation and stepped down – he’s not likely to be missed. He annoyed all the doubles players by trying to get rid of them, then annoyed the tournaments by keeping the doubles. Now the singles players are sick of him resulting in the top three, Federer, Nadal and Djokovic taking seats in the Player Council to oppose him. His time was clearly up from that moment. Apparently he has modernised the game and made it more fan-friendly which sounds like nonsense. He taught those Germans a lesson though...
