her best matches are when she hits 5-8 DFs I remember in San Diego this year she had 1 or 2 DFs against Patty Schnyder, but she played like crap and lost

Re: Has Elena Dementieva ever played a match without a DF?

it's a shame ... because she is such a good player and gives her all ... it makes me sad and I'm not even a fan .. I like watching her, but she's not one of my fave's. I think it's

Re: Has Elena Dementieva ever played a match without a DF?

she really needs a serious serve coach if she's ever going to get higher. The top players know how to deal with her serve, and she needs to improve I hope she does, because she really loves the sport and does her best.

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Been around the world, copped all 4 thrice.

I can't understand how someone who plays tennis for a living and who is ranked in the top 10 in the world, yet they can't learn how to control their double faults. That's just shameful!

Back in 2000 her serve was pretty decent actually. The motion looked a million times better than the mess she's making of it these days.

Re: Has Elena Dementieva ever played a match without a DF?

it's a mental issue for her, the commentators say she serves wonderful during practice but on court it's a different situation.
