New Haven: 2r Elena Dementieva (RUS) def. Ashley Harkleroad (USA) 6/1 7/6(6)

amazing job elena

only 7 DF's, but no aces!
She lost her service only twice at 4/0 and 5/3 in the second
She saved 3 of 5 BP's
Elena breaked Ashley 5 times
but the choke at the end of the Match was Ashley came back from 2/5 to 5/5!!
at least a 2 set victory!

Ashley

Finally, this match should have been 6-1 6-2, but you can trust Lena to make it interesting Keep going

This was Elena's 30th victory of the year. Let's make it 31 tomorrow.

What a thriller at the end! She should have closed the match at 5:2.


But a win is a win. Congrats Elena!

Re: New Haven: 2r Elena Dementieva (RUS) def. Ashley Harkleroad (USA) 6/1 7/6(6)

a huge lead. needing five match points. against harkleroad.

pretty much sums up the match.
typical elena sloppy second set, but good job for toughing it out.

ashley from 1-6 1-5 to a tiebreak with venus at the french and 1-6 2-5 to a tiebreak with elena here.

dementieva + sharapova + bartoli + chakvetadze

Was worried when Elena lost her grip of the second set, and when Ashley saved four matchpoints in the second set tiebreak, but Elena came out of it the winner!

If there is no little (or even better, big) Drama in the match, it is just not fun for Lena...Next: Marion, take 4...

Congrats Elena. Could/Should have gone easier, but wat is the joy of winning a drama-free match... Was it loss of concentration of Elena at the end or a nice fight back from Harkleroad?

ohh so typical Lena match
she was serving for 5-0 in the second...
anyway, good luck against Marion in the next round!

the Russian elite: Dementieva | Kirilenko | Chakvetadze | Sharapova

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