HAHAHHAA of course she's winning didnt you see the scores... here come the excuses already! LOL!

Face it Elena barely got by Venus and ran into someone who didnt have as many serve problems as she does.

Elena played poorly, in part, due to fear and pressure. Rena hit enough of her serves and shots to remind Elena that she was playing against "Serena." The rest is mental history.

Someone is quietly turning back the clock...to them bulldozer dayz...

Always on the lookout for a great tennis match.

Kinda, Serena is hitting her serve well and doing the key things right. Elena was a UE and DF machine.

Never mind, Elena can only learn from this.

Good luck next time Elena!

when i looked at the stats i expected about 20 more errors from Elena than Serena, but she only had 8 more errors. If you take away her 9 double faults, you would see that from the groud She made the same amount of errors that serena did out there today.

It was all really about her serve. Her ground game in my opinion wasn't all that bad, and when you play against serena everyone knows serena is all about serena she doesn't let you dictate or really play her game. In the end it was the serve that const Elena.

I didn't get to see the match so I can't comment on who played well or who played badly, but obviously Serena did what she needed to do to produce a humiliating loss for her opponent.

I was shocked at the small number of winners Serena had by 3-0 in the second set. I don't even think she had ten yet, and Dementieva had about 8. That was truly shocking to me considering the Williams' ability to hit huge numbers of winners, especially when you've got a scoreline of 6-0 3-0.

I saw Serena vs Eleni and I could see she was struggling and I thought she'd have to put up a fight to beat Elena. What a disgrace!

As Serena says she goes out there and takes care of her business. That's exactly what she did. Congratulations Serena!
