Maria has a complete game. Elena.....she has nice groundies, and she can be very tough to beat when she digs in and fights during matches, but Maria has it all! And I think one of the WTAworld posters said it best when they said, "How can you call someone (Dementieva) a great volleyer when she only comes in to shake hands?"

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.

I think Maria will win, but Elena could suprise us possibly if maria is hitting error after error.

I think Dementieva is still a favourite - maria won today, tough, against a player who was in a bad form entire year. Dementieva pushed Kuznetzova in 3 last week and after i saw Svetlana play believe it must have been some kind of achievement!

If Elena D can control the df´s, we could actually have a match at our hands here...

Always bet on black!

well, she never slices, so you're right. but she has a big serve, a good forehand and backhand, a good return, and she vollies well. she is more well rounded than people give her credit for.

Good forehand, good backhand, good return and good volleys does not mean that someone has a complete game...

Having game includes knowing how to use your assets...she does not have a complete game, as yet...lets hope she lives up to her potential and develops one.

I think Dementieva will wear down Sharapova 4-6 6-3 6-2 for a comeback win. Elena is a much better athlete than Maria is and is much stronger than Maria is, too. And her physical superiority will play a major role in this match. And Masha has a minor leg injury which is somehting that could hamper her play. But Elena and Masha always seem to play close matches. Even in the Hong Kong exho. Good luck to both girls.

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

Dementieva - she pushed Svetlana last week and I think she is a better claycourter.
