Re: WWW Dubai QF:  Elena Dementieva vs.  Venus Williams?
Venus loves playing players like Elena who hit with some pace and power from the baseline. She has been on and off during her past two matches.
* Venus leads the overall H2H against Elena 7-2.
* On hardcourts Venus leads the H2H 4-2.
* Venus has won the last 4 matches that she and Elena have played.
* Elena's only two victories against Venus have been tough three setters winning 7-6(5) and 7-6(3) in the final set.
* Venus won their most recent meeting in Doha (YEC) last year 6-4 4-6 6-3
Venus in 2, unless she just decides to spray errors everywhere like the first set today.
