Re: Predict Elena Dementieva 2009 French Open Performance

It's hard to predict before the draw is out, but Elena reached at least the semifinals of the last 3 majors and the Olympics and YEC.
At least the semis in all 5 and no one else reached the semis in more than 3 of those 5.
So I expect her to be at least in the semis

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

That scream you just heard was me reacting to this jinx thread.

The next scream you hear will be when Elena does her usual job of cutting my heart out of my chest using the butt cap of her Yonex(r) tennis racket.

Pass the duct tape and super glue. Lena's done broke my heart one last time.

There was a thread about predicting Lena's 2009 Australian Open performance too.

Re: Predict Elena Dementieva 2009 French Open Performance

In all reality, even though she's not really tipped as a big favourite by betting odds, this might actually help her. Unlike Melbourne, she really is going into the French Open just one of the pack. In Melbourne she was tipped by many to be the winner. That pressure is now on Dinara's shoulders.

She has just as much chance to win as any of the top girls. I voted 'Champion' because that's what my says.

Re: Predict Elena Dementieva 2009 French Open Performance

I rank her up in my top faves. I think she will either be a SF+ or a R16, I cant see her losing in the QFs, dont ask me why
