Yeah, and if she would've won it, she would've been like "I've been waiting for this tournament for the whole year, I love IW!"

Re: ED did not want to play IW

OMG! Did you read her quotes? LMAO, where she says "I wasn't even excited about this match". If she were one of us I think she would have called in a mental health day today. lol. And it doesn't exactly sounds like she'll be in the mood to play Miami in two weeks either. lol.

Never chase love, affection or attention. If it isn't given to you freely by another person, then it isn't worth having.

Re: ED did not want to play IW

Very professional Elena.

The proper way to tank would be to lose 6-3 6-3 or so.

3 weeks off since her last match isn't enough rest?

Re: ED did not want to play IW

Well the first official tank of "The Road Map"

I fully expect Dementieva to have a press conference at Miami where she will say:

"I would like to officially announce that I am joining Venus and Serena Williams in their boycott of Indian Wells. What happened there 8 years ago was a disgrace to tennis and I was partially responsible. I want to stand with Venus and Serena in their fight against the evil bigotry and mistreatment they experienced there, and I will not return until they do. We girls have go to stick together. NO JUSTICE, NO PEACE. FIGHT THE POWER, and THIS WAS A FAMILY DECISION, between mama Vera and me."

Proud Blackjack!

Re: ED did not want to play IW

Elena definitely wanted to play IW ... would lose chance for $2M year end bonus if missed any of 4 premier tournies, plus 1000 ranking points if won it. Most players are tight lipped after a big upset, human nature.
