Red face Dementieva's Solution To Injury: Play 4 Straight Weeks Before Roland Garros :help:

Lena Dementieva will make her debut at Istanbul Tier III
while this is good news to fans in Istanbul, I am not sure if I agree with her strategy ... yes, she has missed 4 big tournaments (IW, Miami, AI, Charleston) and I know she is eager to get back onto the court and to return to the Top 10

but I am not sure if playing Warsaw, Berlin, Rome and Istanbul right before French Open is the solution ... her ranking has dropped that she will not have byes in those tournaments and she will be suspect to another injury before RG

Well, it's a good solution for the boredom of her fans.

I think she might have to withdraw from an event if she goes deep into the previous tournament. If she loses early then she won't have to wait too long in between events.

Re: Dementieva's Solution To Injury: Play 4 Straight Weeks Before Roland Garros :help:

Well she's not playing 15 out of 16 weeks like Jankovic.
It certainly could be worse.

She is likely playing 7 straight weeks though with this schedule.

Unlike many softies, Dementieva is there to play tennis without crying about injuries. She's a fighter, she plays with injuries. She wants to be fully prepare for RG. She will kick many soft juicy asses in these warmups before the big dance. She will outclass many hypers like vaidi, Ivanovic and That joking pova. She will take this soft tour by the horns and drive it right down main street.

As a professional, Dementieva will do what she's paid for, play tennis. That whining stuff is for soap opera divas like (you know them)

Re: Dementieva's Solution To Injury: Play 4 Straight Weeks Before Roland Garros :help:

she's had at least over a month for her injury to heal so i don't see the problem with playing that many tournament. Granted she might lose early in her first tournament back because of lack of matches but she will eventually peak in time for the French......i hope

Re: Dementieva's Solution To Injury: Play 4 Straight Weeks Before Roland Garros :help:

well actually if lenas playing 4 str8 weeks doesnt mean she will end up playing for 4 whole weeks.. I love lena but its a fact that she generally has an off tournie once in a while and i would rather if she has it before RG than at RG..Anyways allez Lena..Get well soon..cant wait till she comes back!!
