Actually she shouldn't. Lindsay's gotten shit calls too, and even if Elena won that point, it would still be deuce because of the double.

Actually no because then it wouldn't be deuce. I love Lindsay as much as the next person and I'm glad she's doing so well and so positive, but she's complained about calls that were shown in and as a result the chair is going in her favor.

Elena already won that game.

Exclamation

So far, Elena has been getting more bad calls than Lindsay, epsecially in the third game of the second set.

ITA. She's apparently questioning some of these calls to break Dementieva's rhythm and to catch her breath. She shouldn't worry tho, she's got this tournament all wrapped up.

I'm glad they switched the linesmen, too, it was becoming quite annoying. Poor Lynn Welch would need skates to cover the whole court with them not doing their job.

Actually when Elena was up 40-30 it should have been 30-40 because Lindsay got a bad call earlier in the game on a forehand. Therefore when it became deuce it should have been game Lindsay so it didn't matter either way.
