She had five double faults at 4-0 in the third, and an ace on a second serve in that game as well.

She served two aces closing out the first set and was only broken twice, both times in the second set.

Just...so typical of Elena.

BTW also, she had six aces, which may be a new record for her! I'd only seen her hit five in one match before (USO 06 1R against Granville).

6 aces overall
too bad for that second set

also rooting for the upcoming stars: Safarova | Pironkova | Golovin

Now if that wasnt a classic Lena scoreline and match, what was. The girl is an utter enigma, starts well, hits few DFs although low 1st% ,hits a bunch of aces and cruises, has a brain fart in 2 and loses it before completely stamping on the gas and destroying Mara in 3 and hardly dropping a point until the crazy game at 4-0 5 DFs, yes 5 DFs and an Ace but still holds, dear oh dear, what a girl...... and another bagel served.

Anyhow, down to business, sorry Mara ,you tried hard and it looked as if you could be comming back at the start of the 3rd, but the Big Golden One had other ideas and therefore YOU HAVE BEEN DEMENTINATED!!

Captain of the all new SS Dementieva


Once a Lena fan always a Lena fan
