Can Elena Back Up Her Claim To Be GS Champ By Taking Out Kim?



If Kim plays the way she did today, she is going to be pummeled by Elena

beating kim does not make elena a grand slam champ.
anyway, if kim continues this sorry form, i'll say elena wins in straight sets.

Kim Clijsters always in my heart

With everybody either injured or out of shape... Elena has a good chance for the Aussie Open... but... She could be in trouble if she draws either the Auckland, Gold Coast or Sydney winner in her quarter...

Consistency is the key...

Even if Elena wins, it'll mean nothing. This is an exhibition. Dementieva has one of the most similar time change to Hong Kong nex to all the other players, I'm sure a lot of them are just tired.

If she thinks her serve is good enough to win her a GS title, that's one person who does.

Elena needs to stop it with the grandslam crap and just let her raquet do the talking when she is playing in a semi-final, quarter-final or final. Right now nobody is going to take her seriously because of her past choking, bad errors and horrible serve.

If this tournament were a grand slam, Lena wouldn't have to talk about winning one.

She is my favorite player, but until she gets her head problems figured out and wins a final that matters, she's just giving the haters fodder and teasing her long-suffering (but fanatically loyal) following with these kinds of statements.

Pass the duct tape and super glue. Lena's done broke my heart one last time.
