Re: Where is Dementieva's best chance to win a slam?
AO or the USO.
The French Open she has sucked at since 2004. She's not a great clay-courter at the best of times. She was miles better on the stuff circa 2003-2006.
The AO over the past couple of years has really been her best chance IMO. She seems to prepare well over the off-season and looks ready by January.
She has made two Wimbledon semis, but as long as the WS are around they will consistently be better than her on grass and they are the ones who you need to beat at Wimbledon.
As for the USO, I'd still say that's a good tournament for her, despite last year's result. Her 2004 run to the final is the main thing that convinces me that she is Grand Slam-winning material
