Acapulco: Asagoe d. Dementieva 5-7 6-3 6-3

Shinobu

Elena is pitifully inconsistent

She needs to get her act together

Shinobu beat Myskina in last years French Open. She has also beaten Schett in 2 sets this year.

The thing with Shinobu is...... she is more dangerous to players ranked much above her..... but to players ranked below her .....

I wouldn't be surprised if she losses to an easy opponent in her next match.... then beats another top player the week after!


Also..... remember she has beaten Coetzer before and taken Seles to 3 sets.
Well done Shinobu - now please follow it up with a win!

Shinobu is quite dangerous, but Elena's results have been terrible this year. It seems to be a trend among Russian players. They will have one or two good seasons, then the pressure gets to them and they are never able to follow up and find any consistency.

Will Dementieva retire b4 Hingis?

"I told her, `You don't want to get into a hitting battle with Sharapova, because it would be uneven for Sharapova, because Sharapova only has one good side and that's her backhand,"'. "`You don't want to get into that for the simple reason you would win. So try to hit some balls to her strong side, to her backhand, and that would help you with your match for tomorrow

I'm trying to decide whether that was a pathetic attempt at a joke or venusfan just being naturally stupid

As stated several times on this board, in the single-name "hierarchy" of the WTA, the name "Elena" was effectively surrendered to Bovina last off season (even B4 she passed Dementieva in the rankings). The relative direction each was going was clearly visible.

Man, elena was once thought to be a major power, but she is dropping like a rock in her skill and in the rankings.

Geez! I can't believe the anti-Dementieva sentiment She's a really nice girl. At least give some encouragement for her...she didn't lose on purpose you know.
