omg Dementieva hit a 124-mph ace!

did you guys see that rocket down the middle? what the hell happened to Lena's 1st serve?!

she is hitting it so much harder (although it only went in a few times during the whole match )

2nd serve is still the same

Lena is built solid. She's a very strong woman.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: omg Dementieva hit a 124-mph ace!

she seems really motivated to play well here in Moscow. I think lack of motivation has been a problem for her this year, along with that rib injury.

But why couldn't she do that before? She's always been a strong woman.

The radar was supplied by the Russian mob. But if it's true good for Lena.

I didn't count as an ace as Dinara just got a frame to it.

Re: omg Dementieva hit a 124-mph ace!

Shoulder injury she got in Australia in 2001. She didn't want to leave the tour cuz she AFR and learned to serve differently, turning into the monstrosity we grew to love the past few years.

In 2000 she had an alright serve, but she was 18, developing her game and all. Which, unrelated, is why I'm so at the people who say Sharapova's shoulder injury is nothing. It certainly affected Dementieva negatively in the long run.

Its never been a problem of strength, Lenas 6 feet odd tall and having seen her live myself I can say she is VERY powerfully built but her technique was all to pot, now shes slowly sorting it out and she can now put her power to good use.

I doubt it will ever be consistant enough to be a major threat, but it IS way better and the consistancy is improving albeit slowly.

Captain of the all new SS Dementieva
