Elena Just WON!!!!

YES!!!
Dementieva just defeated Schiavone 7-6, 6-2. If I'm right I like she plays Henin-Hardenne in the next round!!!

There is no possible way Elena can get into the top 5. If she improves her serve, i still dont see her getting into the top 5. Her groundstrokes are like pity pat, her backhand is strongl, but thats it. Jelena has much more potential

Elena's forehand is better than her backhand in my opinion. She creates much more damage off that side anyways. I'm glad Elena won and I hope she can go far at this tournament!!! Good luck Alyona!!!

elena's backhand looked pretty poor when she played serena at wimbledon imo, her forehand certainly is her weapon. she could get top 5 if she improves that serve, i think to get top 5 she may need to improve that backhand a bit as well as the serve.

good win elena, schiavone has been playing well recently.

good luck against justine!.

Go the aussies! stosur!!!
and good luck russians: dementieva, safina, kirilenko, sharapova, kuznetsova, bovina, zvonareva, dushevina.

also good luck to: azarenka, lucic, sprem, vakulenko, vaidisova, safarova, ivanovic, groenefeld, mirza, krajicek, kvitkova, larcher de brito, lisicki.

Yes, I noticed too that Elena's only weapon is that forehand, and probably her quickness too. The backhand of hers is strange, its also weak and sets up winners from her opponents. Her serve also needs to improve. but when she's on, that forehand is really dangerous. This won't be a cake walk for Justine....but I still think Justine in 3 or 2 tight sets. GO JUJU

Her backhand was awesome at Amelia Island.

Go Elena!

Seriously Jbone, what do you have against Elena!!
And by the way, I've seen Elena play in person before, and I think her backhand can be pretty awesome too! So, I think both her forehand and backhand are weapons, her forehand, of course being the better one
