Dementieva's new game plan?

She is coming to the net at every opportunity. Pin is allowing her but she better keep this up. It will help her if she wants to win usopen.

Bingo.

She's treating this like a vigorous practice match.

She's playing Pin. She could go out there with whatever game plan she wanted and still get the win.

Re: Dementieva's new game plan?

Dementieva is really limited by her net game and mediocre volleying skills. There are so many times she could end rallies if she would come forward and take the ball out of the air.

Re: Dementieva's new game plan?

I started a thread over the summer about how good her net play used to be and never understood why she stopped. I hope she keeps it up.

Re: Dementieva's new game plan?

I have only been impressed by Pin once. It was from 0-5 down third set AO 2007 R1 against Maria. Other than that, she is sooooo bad. No serve, no weapons at all. She is a poor man's Wozniacki (thought to be impossible)

Maria Sharapova
Jelena Jankovic
| Kvitova | Wozniak | Azarenka | Marino | Dementieva (always) |

In love with Martha.

Re: Dementieva's new game plan?
