59 is nothing for Lena.
This is how she plays her best. Like Miami 2004.

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

???

Does anyone believe that if she serves 15-20 DF's against Justine, Martina, or Maria that she would win? The obvious answer is of course no...However I have a feeling she won't serve that badly today, if she does it will be a straight set buisness like match for Justine, P

I'd like to see what Dementieva could accomplish if she had an average serve. It's almost scary to contemplate.

Sorry but yesterday I was watching her match against ivanovic and was thinking who is the n°8 seed here???

this serve was just horrible and against a young player like ivanovic that can be OK but against a player like justine henin, no way for her to win or perhaps if henin has a problem in her stomach or something like that.
