Does Chakvetadze have a chance against Dementieva?

I've never seen Anna C. play but didn't know if she would be a threat to Lena D.
I was impressed with her upset over Myskina at the U.S. Open last year - could she upset another top seed?
I guess it depends on how Lena plays as well.
I'd be happy with either winning - but it would be nice to see this girl have another Grand Slam upset.

Vesnina...de Vroome...Shvedova
Lucic-Baroni...Arruabarrena...Lim
Hantuchova...Dellacqua...Cetkovska
Mattek-Sands...Uberalova...Hsieh

She is good, and could be a threat so if the match is clsoe I wont take it as a bad sign for Lena.

Chakvetadze showed at USO that she is a very dangerous opponent, esp for Russians, and Lena D fans should definitely not take anything for granted here. If Lena is at less than 100 percent i think she will be beaten today.

After the Olympics, Anastasia went into a slump.
But she pulled out of it to win Moscow, and make the YEC semis.
Lena should win. But Anna will compete well.

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

I hope Lena stomps Anna into a little puddle of goo.

But I wouldn't go so far as to predict that. Lena and Nastya are both streaky, capable of beating or losing to anybody on the tour.

It's the start of the year. Anything could happen. It depends on how Anna handles the Dementieva second "slow ball". She handled Myskina's second "slow ball" very well at the US Open, but those were under different circumstances. I think Elena will win.

if Anna can keep it close early on she's got a chance
she plays very much like Nastya

You never know. She's the game the trouble the top players. Considering the results of Vera D & Zhenya. She might have.

Chakvatadze was very tricky against Myskina, a crafty player I would say. She's def got a chance - it depends on how well she performs on that day
