Dementieva: Weakest link in top 10?

2 wins 2 losses in 2 slams

Currently based on Slam performances Martina, Venus, Schiavone and Vaidisova deserve to replace her in top 10.

It's not as if she defeated players ranked below her only..
She beat Justine, Kim, and a heapful of players in top 10 despite being the underdog.
If she beefed up her serve, who knows what could happen.

some signature

Almost 3 years in the TOP 10 . One of the m longest streak

Yes , Elena doesn´t deserve the TOP 10

Despite Dementieva's terrible results at Slams this year, I think Patty Schnyder is the weakest link in the Top 10.

I agree. Patty and Elena are solid players but I think there are players who deserve to be top 10 instead of them. Martina and Venus are the two I think should be there instead of them. Elena can play like a top player when she wants too. But she can also play like a player not ranked in the top 20.

She has a Teir 1 title (albeit at the weak Tokyo event) and a final at IW. Better than someone like Patty has done.

Yes but have you ever seen a more inconsistent player ?? And one with a weak serve ?? Put that togheter and this player won't even be in top 20 ... I think Lena's efforts should be appreciated...she's a great fighter and when she's in her game she can't lose...If only she could be this way daily....

Go LenaD !!

Yet, Patty has a 6-3, 6-3 win over Dementieva this year.

Not to mention, Patty has been much, much more consistent.

Losing early at Strasbourg or losing early at the Australian Open. Hmm, I wonder which could be more important.

I love Elena, but she is definitely the worst player in the top ten.
