Battle of the Blonde Russians: Dementieva vs. Sharapova

Who Will win this QF battle?

Is Grass Elena's worst surface? She did get the finals of a grass event last year?

Is Sharapova ready for her first "big" win?

If Maria beat Dechy 6-3 6-2, I can't see why she can't beat Elena.

Comon Elena.
PS: Grass is one of her best surfaces!

I am rooting for Elena. Maria already got her two big wins, plus her qualy wins. It's already been a fantastic tournament for her. But Elena needs to step up and re-establish herself as a true contender in any event she enters, and to do that, she's GOT to beat the rookie. Good luck, Elena!

Elena hates grass, but so did Steffi early in her career. Big flat forehands are perfect for grass. Elena will be vulnerable on backhand side though. I think it will really depend on the Elena attitude. If she will be willing to fight hard for this match, her experience should prevail at the end. I just don't see how Masha can be better than Alyona at this point.

I am really looking forward to this match! Rooting for the Russians is very stressful! They have underachieved as a group in my eyes. But hope springs eternal in tennis.

I am very pleased my 2 favorite tennis players Maria Sharapova and Elena Dementieva will be facing off in the Birmingham quarterfinals tomorrow! Sharapova is hungrier than Dementieva, playing better than Dementieva and she doesn't carry Elena's baggage from blowing matches and double faults. I think Sharpaova will win 6-4 4-6 6-3.

One thing is for sure. Grunts will be heard!

Happiness is like a cat. If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you. It will never come. But if you pay no attention to it and go about your business, you'll find it rubbing up against your legs and jumping into your lap. - William Bennett

I think Maria will beat Elena.

Go Maria spank Elena.... beat her ass.
