Will Dementieva do it again? Can she ...

... win her fourth title this year at the Kremlin Cup?
Legs is on a serious roll and is looking to make the best of her good play and the absence of three major players on the tour.



Now all she has to do is to work on that pedestrian serve of hers and Legs may have a long run in the top ten.

That and get a gameplan. She strikes the ball quite nicely...I wathed her 01(?) Final -v- Dockic, and she was serving much better than she has of late.

"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

I say one match at a time. If Elena gets this title, I'd be over the moon!

But Amelie is up next and you never know what you're gona get with Amelie.

I believe Elena is playing better right now, it being at home and all, so I believe Elena can take this victory!

Good luck Elena!!

PS - TeeRexx, if Elena does win tomorrow, she could be overtaking VENUS We need another Elena vs Venus match-up, I think their matches are very under-rated!

No if Elena wins this match she will be taking over the number six ranking, not Venus. If they were both active and she passed Venus in the ranking that would be "overtaking".

Legs has a real good chance for a 4th title this year, but true, no matter how high she goes in the rankings, Legs will not be a better player than the real 'legs' of the tour.
