Good job. Peer now, Dementieva has struggled with her in the past, should be interesting

Wasn't impressive as the scoreline suggests. She'll get better

No. 4 can't really be a dark horse, can she? :P I mean it's nothing suprising to get a Top 10 player getting deep or even winning a slam.

She hasn't even gone past the 4th round before.

BUT since she will probably be a top4seed, she has a good chance to make the quarters this time... (she shouldn't lose to a 13-16 seed ) I'm not expecting ANYTHING beyond that. Cause it's just pure hope and imagination.

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

Yes she can, she hasn't even gone past the 4th round there, it's her worst slam. But someone of dementieva's caliber should at least have a semifinal appearance at all 4 slams... So we'll see, if we look at form the last year is the best she ever played, so...

I just watched the second set of this match, it wasnt bad quality. Elena was pretty impressive. I would have liked to her to have been pushed a bit harder at the end of the second set, shame about marina's injuries. I thought marina played pretty well apart from her serving I hope she is fit in time for Hobart and AO

Saviour of NZ Tennis Marina Erakovic

My fave forever Justine Henin

Daniela Hantuchova, Andrea Petkovic and Ana Ivanovic
