Based on Elena's interview after her loss, she's not coming to LA....

"It's not the end of the world. This past season was very good for me and I did everything to make it a successfull one. As for this match, my opponent played really well. It was a very difficult match. Now I'm going home. I'm free now. It was a very long season and I feel I got tired from travel and training. I just need some time to spend with my family".

--------

So has she decided not to come to LA?

Maybe she will go home and then see if she qualifies

But I hope she realizes that she will probably have to go to LA (as an alternate)

she probably knows she won't qualify now. it's probably a good thing for her confidence because if she was playing this poorly, sharapova, davenport, and clijsters would be hanging batgels all over her. i'm saying this as a dementieva fan. she needs to get it together for next year.

So many of the girls on tour have such a negative undertone in their comments as of late. They (Juju, Momo, Lena_D) all sound beat-up, tired, and relieved the season is over.

They are all taking the fun out of the Championships this year. I swear if it wasn't for Kim I wouldn't even go this year...

its been a long season for everyone ,the Championships in LA are dismal anyways ,last year the schedules were ridculous and the crowd grey and apathetic ,the players are weary and most will have to make yet another long haul flight to LA.

Elenas played solidly almost every week since USO ,and gone deep into most of the tournaments ,its been a lot of tennis to play ,as have a lot of others ,but kims had a few weeks off ,and Sharapova too ,so i think it best for Elena to start her vacation now ,they need a rest ,god knows I do and I am only watching!

Hopefully she can have a good 2006 and maybe make a big one ,who knows ,she knows what she needs to do..i will support her come what may ,as far as HAVING to go to LA ,fuck it! Elenas a millionaire several times over! pay the fine and stay home ,the only way she should go to LA is if she was to play.

Captain of the all new SS Dementieva

Speaking for myself, the YEC will be much more interesting if Dementieva is there; much less if she is not. She is inconsistent, but more likely to beat the very best players than most of the alternatives. I don't think there's a player who starts licking her chops when she knows she's going to play Dementieva. She's very dangerous.

She will be fined heavily if she doesn't go.

She'll go if she qualifies. You can bet the ranch in it.
