All Serve: Dementieva downs Pratt 6-2 6-2

Thought Pratt would make more of a match. Dementieva must have served better

According to the match statistics Elena served only 8DF's. It seems to get better

Actually Elena only served at about 45% which isnt good enough but she got on a roll, and I would have liked to see her win 6-2 6-0 cos she was realyl seemrolling Pratt from when she was 1-2 down in the first.

Next up is Anna Pistolesi, which could be tough, she just has to be patient and Im sure she can out power her cos Anna isnt going to hit loads of winners off her serve, and with Elenas returning powers, she should crush Annas easily misley serve.

WD Alyona, a very impressive win after a difficult 1st round!

Next is Anna, the real 1st challenge for Alyona in RG. If she keeps the 1st serve in, she will have real chances to advance, she just needs to do that, cuz Anna wont punish her with the serve, she'll only move Alyona a lot, but movement is not her weakness.

Good Luck Alyona, just keep positive baby!

Elena really improved her game, compared to her first round perfomance.

Only 8 df's this time. 2 aces.

22 UFE's and 26 winners.

I was surprised by this stat:

8 of 8 for 100% success on net approaches.

Go Elena!

LOL at the title!!

Good win for Elena, I would not like to make any predictions about her progress in this tourney though.

Women's tennis sucks.

Go Rafa.
