Question Jelena vs Dementieva - Who will win a GS first?

These 2 players are, in my opinion, the most unlucky of the Top 10 right now as they have not won a Slam yet... Elena twice the bridesmaid to Myskina (FO 2004) and Sveta (USO 2004), while Jelena seemed to get stuck at the SF stages for 4 times... against Justine (USO 2006 and FO 2007), Maria (AO 2008) and Ana (FO 2008).

In your opinion, who do you think will win a GS first?

I hope both win one.

Serena. Simona. Ana. Petra. Venus.

Re: Jelena vs Dementieva - Who will win a GS first?

Elena's finals were in 2004.
But besides the fact, I can see Jelena winning a GS first since she's been doing in slams better recently then Elena. But oddly enough, I can definitely see Elena reaching another final.

Jankovic will definatly win a Grand slam title before Dementieva, and she should win one real soon.

In all honesty, I think Elena's lucky to have even gotten to 2 finals. She's just not that great of a player. Jankovic, on the other hand, definitely deserves to win one at some point.

Re: Jelena vs Dementieva - Who will win a GS first?

Tough call.

LenaD has reached two finals but it's losses like the one to Dinara that suggests she may not repeat that feat. Jelena, meanwhile, has the game to win one but she needs to get a serve and also stop choking in SFs. She has time to improve (I think ) so probably her.

Oh and she needs to find a way to beat Ana. If she can't beat Ana on red clay she basically has no chance at all.

Waiting for Ana Ivanovic to just retire already .
Justine Henin. Amelie Mauresmo. Francesca Schiavone.

Re: Jelena vs Dementieva - Who will win a GS first?

Jankovic, because if just a few points in the 3rd set against Ivanovic had gone the other way, she would have been a GS champion today. The fact that she's not been in a final yet is just the luck of the draw as in RG07, AO08 and now RG08 she's lost to the eventual champion...

Dementieva's two finals OTOH were 4 years ago and since then hasn't really been a GS threat...

Novak Djokovic - AO 2008 champion
Ana Ivanovic - FO 2008 champion
Jelena Jankovic - USO 2008 finalist

Dementieva's time is done.

With Henin gone, Jankovic will win a slam. She's too consistent not to have a good draw eventually.

Re: Jelena vs Dementieva - Who will win a GS first?

Jelena...her time will come. The only thing holding her back I think is the mental side of the game...to quote some commentators she's got 'too much going on between the ears' in the semis of Grand Slams
