Re: Dubai 3R: Defending Champion and Olympic Gold Medalist ElenaDementieva def. AMG 6
Lena is going to have to serve a lot better if she's to threaten Venus. Not much penetration on first and those double faults seem to be more in evidence, 5 dfs in 19 2nd serves today, 5 in 28 yesterday.
AMG just couldn't hold serve often enough to compete. Even when she broke back to 3-4 in the 2nd set, it always seemed more likely that Lena would break straight back and she did.
