Wink Lena Dementieva Was Handed A Brutal Draw At Indian Wells 2007

have a look at Lena's potential path to remain a Top 10 player

2R: Serena Slayer Bammer
3R: Peng - In their last meeting on California hard courts, Shuai sent Lena packing in straight sets
4R: Ivanovic
Q: Petrova
S: Vaidisova / Kuznetsova
F: Sharapova / Jankovic

well we all know that Lena thrives under the pressure of difficult draws ... so maybe she will win this event

its not really that tough. she should get past bammer, but then, like usual, she could slaughter or be slaughtered by the rest of those opponents.

Lena is always a question mark. I can't see her beating Ivanovic though

This is my cool signature

Same. No doubt that she can though, she's having a tough year.

She does have a bad draw, but that makes me comfortable. When she beats all of them, then it will silence the haters.

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

Sadly, it wouldn't. Lena could win the three remaining Slams and YEC, find a cure for cancer, resolve the war Iraq with a just solution that works for everyone, discover a self-renewing, pollution-free source of energy, and sign autographs for every sick child on the face of the earth and there will still be slack-jawed troglodytes cutting and pasting "She doesn't belong in the Top 10 with her serve" (likely the only phrase they know) into a dozen threads every time the rankings come out.

I think she'll do okay with this draw, but I don't see her winning. I hope I'm wrong.

look at all those people who can actually take advantage of lena hitting 20 double faults per match. if she gets past ivanovic it will be a suprise
