I think they will actually make a very good pair, they are both excellent doubles players, Anna has proved it with a number of partners, and Dementieva has also had some really great results!!

Be young.... be foolish...... but be happy

RIP Elena Baltacha, thank you for dedicating your life to a sport we all love. You'll be missed but never forgotten.

i think it is good for everyone. elena and anna are very similiar so they won't be holding there partners back with their erratic play, and chanda gets a partner in babsi who plays at a consistant level. i am really happy to see chanda and babsi playing, although i am a little scared because babsi may dump patty for chanda in the future, i know i probably would.

go anna/elena
go chanda/babsi
go serna/serena

OMG!!!
Elena is the last person I can think of to team up with Anna!



So this is love, Mmmmmm
So this is love
So this is what makes life divine
I'm all aglow, Mmmmmm
And now I know
The key to all heaven is mine
My heart has wings, Mmmmmm
And I can fly
I'll touch every star in the sky
So this is the miracle that I've been dreaming of
Mmmmmm
Mmmmmm
So this is love


A dream is a wish your heart makes when you're fast asleep, in dreams you lose your heartaches, whatever you wish for, you keep

I have reservations aout this pairing. If Anna's serve goes off, can Elena imbue her with confidence, the way Martina could? Can Elena help Anna to relax at crunch time, the way Natasha Z or Chanda sometimes could?

If Elena is the one who struggles, will Anna be able to give her the encouraging word, to let her know "I have confidence in you"?

So I don't see a future of greatness for this team, but they do have a good draw to the semis, and even that would certainly feel great for both of these players right now.

I think Elena will return from the deuce court and Anna from the Ad. The will be FANTASTIC returner!!!
