Will Bartoli jack Daniela's spot? (Updated Version)

Daniela has been working so hard, playing a lot of tournaments, getting 70 points there and 50 here and occassionaly a 110 point pot and bigger.

It seems like she was in firm command of the #9 YEC race spot as Bartoli suddenly developed her infatuation with 1st rd losses in the last few tournaments

Anyways, in 1 week, Dementieva scores 430 points and is now approximately 60 race points behind Daniela. That is WAY too close to comfort! Dementieva is not only within striking distance, but with her serve now reaching the mid 120 mph/200km, there's no telling what her Russian ass could do. Bartoli made the quarters of Zurich and is now 50 points behind Daniela. Will Daniela hold on to the #9 YEC race spot?

Discuss.

Re: Will Dementieva jack Daniela's spot?

if elena manages to qualify for the YEC after this abysmal year (minus today) i would crack the fuck up.

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

Re: Will Dementieva jack Daniela's spot?

Elena has a shot if she plays well in zurich(hopefully a final, win probably won't be possible with justine in the mix) and gets a linz wildcard. Daniela will not go further then quarters at most at zurich(justine) but she's playing linz AND quebec. She can gain a lot of points there. It's hard to say, if elena does well in zurich and daniela gets upset by safina elena has a pretty good shot.

All-Time-Great
Justine Henin

Elena, thank you for all the joy you gave me, you will always remain in my mind.

Re: Will Dementieva jack Daniela's spot?

It's hard to saw because they might both lose early in Zurich and make it an easy-in for Maria. Can Elena beat Serena outside of her home city? It will be even harder for her in Zurich, especially if the court is playing faster and Serena is serving well. But who knows, maybe Patty will be inspired like she has been in the past in Zurich and upset the American before losing to Lena?

Re: Will Dementieva jack Daniela's spot?

Daniela will play Linz also (Elena not!) and that is her best chance. Also in Zurich Lena.D will play against Serena already in 2nd Round... Serena played in Moscow day after day 4 matches before down in 2nd set of final, but in Zurich she will play only one match before Dementieva!

But for Elena or Dani at YEC Maria (or Venus) must withraw from Madrid at first.

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

Wait, Daniela doesn't even have her spot yet. Maria has to withdraw, because there's a very slight chance that Daniela will pass her.

Re: Will Dementieva jack Daniela's spot?

I'd love it if she did because she is clearly the best out of those 3 and would give everyone a run for their money at the YEC apart from Justine.

RIP Elena Baltacha, thank you for dedicating your life to a sport we all love. You'll be missed but never forgotten.

She's 0-9 in the last three years, 3-13 overall.

Re: Will Dementieva jack Daniela's spot?

the only way i see daniela going winless in the group is if she gets henin, serena, and venus all in the same group

Re: Will Dementieva jack Daniela's spot?

I think we should wait and see if any of them pass Sharapova in the race. So I voted for the "Get it together" option.
