Re: Www: R1: Elena Dementieva V Venus Williams (day 1 Match 2)

Elena can't hit through Venus, nor is her defense up to snuff to handle Venus' bludgeons.

Five winners in Dubai, three winners in Stanford...she hit like 12 in their first match and around 15 in their Miami one. Think it was 13 or 14 in the Doha match last year.

Basically, Dementieva is screwed.

Re: Www: R1: Elena Dementieva V Venus Williams (day 1 Match 2)

If Lena still had bangs, Venus would slap them clean off.

It's like the tournament directors said, "Let's plan an entire event around making Lena D. look at bad as possible." I hear they offered Msykina a couple million to come out of retirement just to beat Lena, but Myskina's answer was so contradictory and confusing they gave up and just gave her a first round match against Vee instead.

Re: Www: R1: Elena Dementieva V Venus Williams (day 1 Match 2)

My two favs against each other, I hope that both will qualify bor SF, but that is just not realistic!
If Venus doesnt play horrible tennis, she will win this, Elena hates the game of Venus, it got even worse over the last years.

But last yeah in Doha it was a pretty tough fight, and if this will go over 3 sets, Elena will have definetly an advantage!

Re: Www: R1: Elena Dementieva V Venus Williams (day 1 Match 2)

Elena has to face venus first AGAIN? Just like last year... I was hoping for elena to build momentum and face one of the others first, guess that won't be happening...

Venus in 2.

Re: Www: R1: Elena Dementieva V Venus Williams (day 1 Match 2)

depends on which Venus shows up.

even with this 9-2 score im always afraid of this match-up , but then again any 09 Venus match sends me straight into Coma
