Re: Elena's Worst Slam Match?

No
She has lost to Schruff and Jankovic before.
JJ before she was a top player

Definitely Safina. I honestly believe if she had converted that matchpoint, she would of won the whole thing.

Re: Elena's Most Dissapointing Slam Match?

The match today was the most dissapointing, not because of the score or if she choked.. but the fact that she was riding on such a high from the Olympics and I thought for sure that win was gonna remove that mental block she had. So to see her go back to her old ways, I now know all hope is lost for her to ever win a slam.

Re: Elena's Most Dissapointing Slam Match?

no Elena didn´t choked....

RG 2008 will always be the most painful defeat for me... I´ll never get over it/stop hating Dinara because of that match....

and USO 2005.....

Re: Elena's Most Dissapointing Slam Match?

The one that sticks out is the Venus def. Elena won, since all of the others, Elena was somewhat considered the favorite to win the match

Re: Elena's Most Dissapointing Slam Match?

Today was disappointing, sure. Earlier this year, RG QFs against Safina I think was the worst. She would surely have made the final had she won that match. In 2005 she had many incredibly close matches (Australian Open, RG, Wimbly) which she all lost in the 4R having been in positions to win.
I think it really depends on how you look at it. Based on importance of match and various other aspects taken into consideration I think her loss to Myskina really stung for a while.
But I feel she really should have won today. She played sublime tennis for 6 games and then couldn't win 2 consecutive points. I really thought this was hers.

I'm amazed - Elena looked in control of this match and just seemed to throw it away in both sets - I don't understand why.

Re: Elena's Most Dissapointing Slam Match?

I'd take RG '08 or USO '04. She could have had 2 slams now.
