Patty would be better than Elena

She would have more chance of winning a match (her last match against Maria was good) and we could finally see the Swiss missus showdown.

Re: Patty would be better than Elena

Patty could have proven you right, had she played better all year and qualified fo the YEC

Patty's a good player, but based on her results this year there's no evidence to suggest that she would have done better than Elena. She's beaten Henin-Hardenne once this year, and her only other wins over top-ten players were over Dementieva herself.

Re: Patty would be better than Elena

A 'better chance' doesn't translate to actually winning.

Re: Patty would be better than Elena

Lena is playing very well. If she had caught Sveta on a bad day, this would be an important match.

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

Re: Patty would be better than Elena

I find Elena better, but at this tournament she isn't playing well.

Kim played really bad in the first, but still won it. So that's says enough about Elena's game at the moment.

Good luck for the 2016 season:

• Ana Ivanovic
• Kiki Bertens
• Michaëlla Krajicek


Maria Sharapova, Caroline Wozniacki, Angelique Kerber, Serena Williams, Petra Kvitova, Jelena Jankovic, Flavia Pennetta

Re: Patty would be better than Elena

patty has the trickier game so she could trouble the other players more. elena has been playing very uncreative tennis for the last 2 years. hitting back the same ball 100 times isn't enough to win against top names.

Re: Patty would be better than Elena

Why are people saying 'no'? You think Patty would have done WORSE than Elena did ? Look at the scores of her matches !! Patty clearly would have won more games at least.

Re: Patty would be better than Elena

And this year she didn't play well enough to qualify...nor did she get lucky enough to have someone pull out of the tournament. She might have won more games, or even a match, she might not have. The important thing is we'll never know because she didn't put herself in a position to even have a chance
