Re: Who is Greater? Elena Dementieva or Francesca Schiavone?
Lena--and for some reason I feel like going beyond my usual knee-jerk response--was rated ahead of other, more distinguished one-slam wonders and slamless #1s than Fran on most list of the best WTA players of the decade, including Ivanovic, Myskina, Safina, Jankovic etc., all of whom rank ahead of Fran even on the one-slam wonder list.
Look, no one would love to see Lena on that one-slam wonder list more than I would (well, except maybe Mommy Vera) but with all do respect to Fran she will have to back this up with a pretty strong kick down the stretch of her career to be considered a better player than many of her slamless contemporaries.
Pass the duct tape and super glue. Lena's done broke my heart one last time.
