Will Dementieva win a match at YEC?

And it's not a bold question!
Personally, I think she will but...
... She lost all matches in straights in 2004 and 2005. She has 3-11 overall record at YEC and 2 of 3 wins came on her debut in 2000. She won only 6 sets at YEC having lost 25 sets! In fact, her every win was a three-setter and her every loss was a straight-setter.

2000
R16 DAVENPORT, LINDSAY 2 W 3-6 7-6(7) 6-4
QF CLIJSTERS, KIM 19 W 6-4 2-6 6-4
SF SELES, MONICA 4 L 6-1 7-6(4)

2001
R16 CLIJSTERS, KIM BEL 5 L 6-3 7-6(2)

2002
R16 HENIN, JUSTINE BEL 4 L 6-3 6-3

2003
RR CLIJSTERS, KIM BEL 1 L 6-2 6-2
RR MAURESMO, AMELIE FRA 6 L 6-3 6-2

RR RUBIN, CHANDA USA 10 W 4-6 7-5 6-1

2004
RR DAVENPORT, LINDSAY USA 1 L 6-0 6-1
RR WILLIAMS, SERENA USA 8 L 7-6(3) 7-5
RR MYSKINA, ANASTASIA RUS 3 L 6-3 6-3


2005
RR MAURESMO, AMELIE FRA 4 L 6-2 6-3
RR PIERCE, MARY FRA 5 L 6-2 6-3
RR CLIJSTERS, KIM BEL 2 L 6-2 6-3

Elena is well rested for the YEC this year. She's ready to do some damage in Madrid.

If Clijsters makes it to the final in Hasselt Lena and Martina will be in the different groups, otherwise they could be in the same group.

They can't both lose all their matches if they are.

Im thinking the same thing, last year she played way way too much at the end of the season in order to guarantee a position at the YEC and by the time she got there she was exhausted which is why she didnt win more than 3games in a set in her 3 matches, in 04 the whole yr had taken so much out of her getting to 2 slam finals and she was in the toughest YEC group of all that yr and in 03 she was visibly tired, this yr she has played just 3 indoor events and was upset early on in 2 of them and upset later on in Moscow, she hasnt really been in form on the carpet and has really had to fight to win the matches she has won and when you look at her career lena's best results come after shes had a rough patch for example after losing the 1st round of Aus going onto in her next tournie to win her 1st tier 1 i think she is going to surprise everyone this yr at the YEC i have a feeling, shes gonna win a few matches at least this yr anyway i think

Re: Will Dementieva win a match at YEC?

Re: Will Dementieva win a match at YEC?

i'm hoping for the best. i feel like in 2004, she was mentally burnt out from losing all of those important finals. in 2005, she literally played every week...so she was definitely burnt out.

this year, she has won 2 out of 3 finals, she won her first tier 1, she has beaten a red hot clijsters (in straights!), henin-hardenne, sharapova (in straights!)...i think she can do it. she's also defeated hingis...hasn't played mauresmo or petrova yet this year.

ROCK ON:
elena dementieva, serena williams, caroline wozniacki, ana ivanovic
david nalbandian, rafael nadal, andy murray, gael monfils, jo-wilfried tsonga

Re: Will Dementieva win a match at YEC?

Elena has had a slump and injury problems throughout the indoor season.

If she is fit, refreshed and serving adequately she is capable of beating anyone. Very much a form-girl, if she wins her first match at YEC Ms Dementieva could cause some real damage

Re: Will Dementieva win a match at YEC?

Knowing how unpredictable she can be she'll probably exceed everyone's expectations and win the whole thing.
