Tokyo 2R: (3) Lena Dementieva Begins Title Defense Against Lena Likhotseva

I wish I could say that I am confident Lena D will win this match in straight sets but my mind tells me that is very unlikely ... if Lena loses this match she will lose close to 300 points in her ranking, which would not be good, so she has to win. Hope she channels the energy of those sumo wrestlers she watched and overpowers Lena L

LenaL can be one to watch out for. She gives alot and she's taken LenaD to 2 long 3 setters.

Although LenaD leads 4-2 H2H, Likhotseva shouldn't be under estimated.

Above all that, LenaD in straight sets.

Re: Tokyo 2R: (3) Lena Dementieva Begins Title Defense Against Lena Likhotseva

If Lena plays average tennis, she`ll win. This is a surface that suits her(I`m talking about Dementieva ). But if Lena has a bad day.....bye bye Tokyo defence

Re: Tokyo 2R: (3) Lena Dementieva Begins Title Defense Against Lena Likhotseva

Polls asking about Dementieva winning a match are dangerous. I refuse to take part in them anymore.

I just hope it's a good match. Not like I'll ever see it, but hey.
