Dementieva, the most boring player on tour to watch!

Nothing is happening, she is just running and hitting and nothing is happening. Some of you are always saying that her forehand is so awesome but hey, where is it?
Even Mauresmo is funnier to watch even though she's also just running and running....she is coming to the net once in a while.

Dementieva = boring and monotonous!

Yeah she seem to be a nice person.....but nowdays her tennis is boring. It's much funnier when she's going for winners. I remember amelia island for like 3 years ago when she beat both henin and davenport...so many winners. I think that would raise her game to a higher level to.

You will be killed for this by rabid Dementieva fans.

But yeah, you are right. She's not going anywhere with her current game because there's nothing special to it. She's too defensive and her game has too many flaws, the biggest one her serve of course.

I think it´s very exciting to see her play! You never what´s gonna happen with her. How is her serve gonna be (most of the time not so good, but sometimes it's pretty good and the other day just horrible)
Her groundstrokes are beautiful! I don't think she plays so defensive at all. Sometimes, when she has too, but a lot of times she is really attacking!
Very unpredictable player, but always fighting and she looks beautiful!!!
Elena Rocks!!!

She's also making more errors these days, and if you rely solely on defending you just can't afford that.

i agree about it being a little boring, but that's only now. when she's on though, she's absolutely amazing to watch. her match against mauresmo at the FO 04 was great.

She is just out of form right now, at LA she played great attacking loads but since winning that she is slumping a liitle, played decent at USO until the quaters were she imploded against Jankovic and last week was pretty poor shes just going through a bad patch

She is boring. But only coz she is in a semi slump. She is very entertaining when she is playing well.
