Re: Dementieva Fans: What would you prefer?

I am a Dementieva fan, despite loving Devilpova more.

I'd rather see her upset by Oudin. I don't like seeing my top two favourites go against each other. It's too hard to cope.

Oh, and it gives a potential free pass to the QF at least (Petrova in the 4R? Please.)

Re: Dementieva Fans: What would you prefer?

Such a bad draw for Lena D and Maria

Anyways, my vote goes to the draw magically changing placing Maria just a wee bit farther so that both my girls can win

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

In love with Martha.

Re: Dementieva Fans: What would you prefer?

This is going to be such an unfortunate third round. Unforutunately because of Maria's ranking they have to meet this early. This is one of those times you wish protected rankings were back into play. I can't even call the winner right now.

Re: Dementieva Fans: What would you prefer?

A more interesting question is ... do you prefer a win over Pova in a Premier 5 Final or a win over Pova in a third round of a Grand Slam ?

I choose a win in a Premier 5 Final cos it means a title , a win in a GS third round doesn´t guarantee a title

Re: Dementieva Fans: What would you prefer?

I'd rather see her lose to Sharapova. A loss to Oudin would be more disappointing after Lena's great summer.

Jelena Dokic - Justine Henin - Jelena Jankovic - Elena Dementieva
Zheng Jie - Li Na - Kim Clijsters - Victoria Azarenka - Agnieszka Radwanska - Venus Williams - Daniela Hantuchova - Melanie Oudin
Caroline Wozniacki - Vera Zvonareva - Sorana Cirstea - Sabine Lisicki - Ana Ivanovic - Ai Sugiyama - Anna Chakvetadze

Re: Dementieva Fans: What would you prefer?

I'd like to see Dementieva winning the US Open, just because she definitely deserves to win a GS! She doesn't serve badly anymore like some years ago and is very consistent in general (besides the French this year). She should beat Oudin and Sharapova as well!

DOKIC VERA Z. ANA CARO
HANTUCHOVA KIRILENKO MIRZA CHAKVETADZE REZAÏ BACSINSZKY
Good luck to: Pironkova, Karatantcheva, Peng, Krajicek, Dushevina, Vesnina, Cetkovska, K&A Bondarenko, Oudin, Cornet, Tatishvili, Cibulkova, Olaru, Niculescu, Cirstea, Kleybanova, Larcher de Brito, Robson, Zahlavova Strycova, Rogowska, Marino... Would be even more...

Sorry, I still prefer the third option: She beats Oudin and then McHale in 3rd round.

(if you really insist on only two above mentioned options - it`s not a shame losing to Sharapova ... but she should beat Oudin)

Jelena Dementjeva
Marion Bartoli
Patty Schnyder


Majerič, Hercog, Rampre, ...
Šarapova, Kerber, Kirilenko, Makarova, Robson, Pavljučenkova, Svitolina, Vekić, Putinceva, ...

Re: Dementieva Fans: What would you prefer?

Pfft. Demi will destroy Maria. Unfortunately, she'll fall prey to the unstoppable JJ in the SF. But she'll win Wimbledon next year, so it's all fine.

Re: Dementieva Fans: What would you prefer?

Losing to Sharapova even after 200 MP saved.
A third round is beyond the second, so that seems to be a better result.
And losing to Sharapova is not a disaster.
Anyways my hope is still intact.
Lena is not afraid of Maria anymore.
