Elena is clearly not the player she was a couple of years ago. Obviously she has been a great asset to the game for a long time. It wouldn't be nice if she can't get any wins in singles in her final year on the tour. Actually I think and obviously very much hope that she can still get some wins. But in truth it will require some easy draws against either relatively weak opponents or strong opponents who are unfit, out of form or not fully motivated. Na Li unfortunately doesn't appear to fit the bill. Hope Elena can get a more generous draw next time out.
It's a shame because Elena Likhovtseva is more talented than Na Li, and should not be losing to her 6-1 6-1, it's just she hasen't found her game yet this year. I expect a similar scoreline to last week, but I hope Elena does have some wins this year. She has lost 1R in Paris and Antwerp doubles aswell.
