Good match for both teams, just lack of a little bit luck as Kohlschreiber said. Congrats Russia

I was hoping Elena would bring back some of her doubles skills. Old videos suggest she wasn't to shabby back in the day.

Lena is a two-time GS doubles finalist (too bad she didn't win one of those or she'd have a slam ), and former YEC champion.

I'm feelin' they jealous, like I'm Monica Seles.

Partial redemption for the Big Golden Delicious!

So she lives to fight another day. Please find some form.

And yes, Lena can be a very good dubz player. Hell, I'd take a mixed slam at this point. Anything!
