Incorrect, other than Amelie and Kim, she is the best active player without winning a slam.
It might be confusing to see Russians doing so well on clay, but clay is where the power of the sisters is absorbed. You are wrong to count her out. With a serve, she can win a lot more.

1. It was on clay, where her serve hurts her the least.

2. Her 1st 2 opponents were terrible.

3. Smashnova was crushing her in round 3 before getting hurt.

4. Davenport (R16 opponent) never plays well on clay and was not 100%.

5. Mauresmo (QF opponent) always chokes.

6. Suarez choked even more than Mauresmo in the SF.

How the hell could Sharapova win Wimbledon?

The easy answer is that both, Elena and Masha had two really good weeks, are both brilliant players and in those two weeks only one person was better and in Masha´s case she was the top player of those two weeks...that´s it.

It´s such a pity you have disabled reputation, I can´t imagine why you did that in the first place...

Could someone please delete this thread?

And I don't want to diminish what Dementieva did. They say luck is when preparation meets opportunity. Sure, she didn't play the greatest clay court, Grand Slam opponents. But she did beat them all, which doesn't always happen when a player gets easy draws.

Dementieva is #6 in the world. She also reached the Key Biscayne final. And made the semis in San Diego and L.A.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

simply, dementieva has some of the best groundstrokes in tennis and fights very hard for all the points.
