I was just wondering.
Elena is one of these players, everytime Justine (my ultimate fav) has to play her, I'm quite worried, because I find it hard to figure out a strategic plan that works well against Dementieva.
Hitting hard: n,ot going to work
Moving her around: go ahead, she'll bring it back deep and hard
Don't give her angles: She doesn't have a problem with creating her own (especially witht hose FH's she takes on the rise)
Play with a lot of effect: She doesn't seem troubled by it
You see my point? Of course you can try to attack her serve, but that's only a first step. I just feel as if -for a lot of players- Elena is maybe the trickiest player to play against, because on top of all of that she's very strong mentally too.
I think (hope) Justine-Elena could be a very interesting match.
Do I make sense?
Would be nice if we could make this into an actual tennis-thread; you know, about tennis
Anyone have any ideas on how justine (other player) should play Dementieva, and what Elena should do against justine in their SF?
