(4) Elena Dementieva def. (19) Aravane Rezai 6-3, 6-3
6-0 vs Rezai!
Didn't see the match but from the stats Lena absolutely ripped into Aravae's 2nd serves.
It's a pity that Lena's likely path to the final will require her to overcome Radwanska, Woznicki and Jankovic, 3 players who absolutely give her fits with their retrieving.
I don't think she's playing well enough to blast her way past those 3 players but fingers crossed. Nice to see Lena doing well at a big event again-its been too long..
"And thanks to all the people around the world for supporting me, and my fan club, I could feel your support no matter where I was in the world. Thank you for your devotion. Most importantly, thanks to my family, especially my mom. You've been very supportive, encouraging, inspiring... you were always there for me. It was a long way and we did it together. I love you mom. It's so emotional. It's so hard to say goodbye. I'm going to miss you so much"
