Russian Showdown: Dementieva vs Zvonareva

Who will win?

I'll be rooting for Vera. She's been good this hardcourt season. Would love to see her make the QF's at least.

Why is it that the world never remembered the name of Johann Gambolputty de von Ausfern-

this will be tough but I feel Lena D will do it in three she is moving well and apart from the serve (which seems to be getting better) her game is good right now,but she will have to bring her proper game to the court!

Vera hit 40 winners against Zuluaga, and I'm convinced that she will be able to outhit Lena from the baseline.

If Vera holds serve, she will win.

I'm thinking Vera will do it, but both being inconsistent, it could really go either way.

Well, I walk into the room
Passing out hundred dollar bills
And it kills and it thrills like the horns on my Silverado grill
And I buy the bar a double round of crown
And everybody's getting down
And this town ain't never gonna be the same.
Cause I saddle up my horse and I ride into the city
I make a lot of noise
Cause the girls, they are so pretty...

All
ez Amélie!

All Russian affairs are tricky. There are a lot of other factors that suddenly become involved. On form, I'd give it to Zvonareva, who has the better serve and some blistering shots. But anything can happen here.

If Lena wins she's more points than last year @Us Open. She's now on 118 points last year she'd 122. Last years Bali points are coming off too. She's in total 335 points to defend.

Im not sure, Vera isnt looking at her best in the other two rounds but with Elena D you never really know what your going to get...It should be a good match if both play to their potential (which is highley unlikely). Im giving the edge to Elena cos she is the mor older and more stabler of the two and if it comes to the crunch shoudl be the one who pulls it out.

LenaD knows if she wins this she maybe near to hit the number 5 after so long she's been talking about it..so she may play really well..and the hunger to play singles..cos she got a walkover...so im sure she wants to be on the court and hit really well..
but zvonareva WOW..she really impress all of us this summer..

lets just hope we get a good quality match from both girls as they are both capable of playing brilliant tennis when they want to! Vera has the edge on serve, Lena has the edge on movement and groundies.
May the best girl win they are both great ,i will be rooting for Elena Obviously but if she
loses it will not be a disgrace!

I voted Elena in three. Cera is talented enough to take a set off Elena, but Vera has underperformed against the top players at times.

She played some of her best tennis earlier in the hardcourt season, whereas Elena's is still yet to come I feel.

Plus Vera gets extremely emotional on court. Elena's serve and Vera's nerves will be the biggest factors here. Going ourely by experience, I hope Elena pulls this out.

Good luck Elena!!!!
