Dementieva:32 service games=35 double faults

Pathetic!

And she expects to win starting 0-15 down every service game against Lindsay, one of the greatest return of servers to ever play...don't think so.

This girl's serve sucks, I guess she never did ask her little sister for help improving her second serve.

Exclamation

I can't see Elena going any furhter than she already has. She is fortunate that Anna (who was leading to start the third set) had to retire with cramps or else she'd probably be gone. Here's hoping that Lindsay will do us all a favor and send Elena home on Sunday. If she doesn't, you might as well give Amelie a free pass into the semifinals (assuming she wins on Sunday).

You're dreaming TBE she has beaten Lindsay with a decent serve in the past, but now that will be almost impossible
Usually i'd be cheering for her, but i wanna see Lindzi challenged Momo. Alyona would be destroyed by Momo.

Agreed. Elena and her serve have just turned into a big joke, she was very, very, very lucky today...

Come back EVENTUALLY Cappy!! Ok this clearly was written back in a day when I still had faith..

Mind you, she was 0-2 against Smashnova and thoes two losses relate to her "decent serve" period. And she has beaten Lindsay with exactly that pathetic serve and exactly on clay for her first title. And that serve had driven Davenport nuts.

yea, um, im also a believe that she's gonna take out davenport. she's always hated that serve, and elena's groundstrokes are really really nice for the clay. anything can happen.

I have to disagree with Eggy here.

When Elena beat Lindsay at Amelia Island, her serve sucked, but the rest of the game was perfect, great returns, dominanet play from the baseline etc.

Right now, her serve still sucks (maybe even more), but she's struggling with everything else as well. Especially her confidence is low. She's just in much worse form.

I expect Lindsay to win this. And I hope it will be a comfortable win.

who knows...
Definitely, definitely not. One second serve was under 50mph... and it was a fault
