And both Dementieva and Coria have a realistic chance at winning their respective titles.

Happiness is like a cat. If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you. It will never come. But if you pay no attention to it and go about your business, you'll find it rubbing up against your legs and jumping into your lap. - William Bennett

I should have known it was in the game where I was babbling on here, instead of watching the match.

She saved a match point on SECOND SERVE!!! She served to Venus' forehand right up the middle! I seriously doubt Elena will serve as poorly against Serena becase I (foolishly?) believe things go in cycles. She due for a good serve day and Serena is due for a bad serve day.

No one has mentioned how fit Dementieva looks. That woman has some tight legs! This will be a very interesting match to watch on a certain level, but probably boring at the same time with many errors.

I kinda have the impression that since someone named Seles hasnīt been playing, everything is boring or bad for a certain someone.

Always bet on black!

Off the ground Elena is top 5 material; maybe even top 3 at her best. She is really fit!

What are you trying to say? I was stating a fact...Dementieva served a 2nd serve to Venus' forehand to save match point. And Dementieva DOES have tight legs.

*sigh* Because anytime a big hitter is involved, Serena in this case, there will be a lot of errors. And we know Dementieva will have several double faults. Okay, I'm shutting up now
