Dementieva's new coach!!!

Third seed Elena Dementieva had a slow start this year. "I need some more time. My new coach and former player Olga Morozova will help me to reach a higher level. My main ambition is to reach top five, in the long run I even aim at the number one spot. The Olympics are my main objective this year, for me they're even more important than the Grand Slams".

from the diamond games website

im intrigues... olga morozova, argueably the best russian player coaching elena, the current #2 russian... i think thats its good for elena, to get another opinion than her mother

elena has a stevenson like problem, but elena isnt as stubborn as alex

glad that shes getting a new coach!!!

This is great news. Elena has needed a coach for so long. She did well last year, winning three titles, but I am happy to see that she recognized the need for a coach to get to the next level.

I'm shocked that Olga is Elena's coach...its a great development. Last summer, I saw Olga at the Open and we chatted several times and we especially talked about Elena as both her and I thought that Elena had the most potential and weapons of all the russian players...she talked about how Russian Federation coaches had talked to Elena over and over again about needing a coach but she would not listen to them...its quite ironic that Olga ends up as her coach...I hope Olga can help her fix that serve, because if she evers get its fixed...the tour will become even more interesting at the top...

Great move by Dementieva, she needed this.

Can't wait to see how she goes with Olga, imagine how good she would be if she had a serve like Davenport.

I am so glad Elena works with Olga. She needs some time to adjust her game and serve, but this will pay off.

Hopefully this is the start of a huge rise for Elena. She is right up there in talent stakes with Clijsters, Henin and Dokic, she just needs someone to help her harness it!
