she lost the slam finals she was in mainly because problems in her mental game i guess. i mean myskina and kuznetsova are winnable matches for dementieva. but she did have somewhat good draws or luck to reach those finals so although i'd like to be confident enough to say her game is good enough where it is, i think she could do with a bit more improvement, it would make matches easier for one, secondly the tour is getting better all the time anyway so she has to get better with it and thirdly shouldn't all players try to become the best player they can become so i don't know why she wouldn't want to try and improve her game anyway. plus a win against serena in an exo i don't think means that much.
