now it's official: Dementieva Qualifies for Doha



ST. PETERSBURG, FL, USA - Elena Dementieva has joined Jelena Jankovic, Serena Williams, Dinara Safina and Ana Ivanovic in qualifying for the Sony Ericsson Championships - Doha 2008, where the world's Top 8 singles players and Top 4 doubles teams from the 2008 Sony Ericsson WTA Tour season will compete for the season-ending title at the Khalifa International Tennis Complex in Doha, Qatar, from November 4-9, 2008.

Dementieva, a champion at Dubai and the Olympics this year and most recently a semifinalist at the US Open, is currently ranked No.5 in the Race to the Sony Ericsson Championships with 2,855 points. With five players having secured their ticket to Doha, only three more spots remain in the singles draw of the prestigious year-end event. Maria Sharapova currently sits at No.6 with 2,515 points, followed by Venus Williams with 2,106 points and Svetlana Kuznetsova with 2,022 points.

"One of my goals has always been to get as close as possible to the top and to make it to the Sony Ericsson Championships," Dementieva said. "Making it to Doha just shows me that I've been doing a few things right this season, so I am just very happy about my qualification. I have played very well all year and I will certainly try my best to finish the season on a high note."

"Elena has had a fantastic 2008 campaign, and she has certainly earned her place at the year-end Sony Ericsson Championships," said Larry Scott, CEO of the Tour. "Elena has had an amazingly consistent presence at the year-end finale, a testament to the strength of her game and her amazing competitiveness."

"Elena's game has gone from strength to strength this year and she is sure to be a strong contender in the 2008 Sony Ericsson Championships in Doha," said Aldo Liguori, Corporate Vice President and Head of Global Communications & PR at Sony Ericsson. "The calibre of talent like Elena's throughout the Tour this year has been phenomenal and has placed women's tennis firmly on the map."

Re: now it's official: Dementieva Qualifies for Doha


This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.
