Re: Dementieva's matches
I agree with roof-shadow/light transition point loss for the german: the point should be replayed (these things NEVER happens on women matches...)
Elena found a rough start: Barrois is at her best career high so she's in top confidence mentally and for sure it helped her to do better. The hot temperatures provided also some minors adaptive problems to Elena.
I think the new coach gave her more confidence & reliability.
