Fairly good draw, untill the Quarters where Mauresmo will give her trouble.
Let's hope for another Alyona/Juju semi, and another Alyona win

I hope Elena will win as well. First of all, take one match at a time. Elena seems a bit tired, so not sure if she will play well. But, we all always believe in her, right?

The seeding is quite good for her. She will rest a day and start with new motivation to defend her title. Come on, Lena!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Its not too bad. Mauresmo is coming back from injury, so she may not be a top form (plus Smashnova could drive her mad), so Elena could be quite lucky and make it far. OTOH she could be tired and slip.

But I feel she will be motivated, this is her 1st title and I'm sure she wants to do well.

Good luck Elena

Yeah, Elena is so proud of AI title. She always says the title changes many things in her career.

I am sure now she has motivation on improving her serve and her game. She should know by now she could play with Serena equally only if she fixed that serve. I look at her bad loss in a positive way. If she had won over Serena or lost in 3 tough setters, she would have thought working on serve isn't important anymore. What she has is enough to be a champion. Now, she realizes what she needs to do. And, I am sure Olga can help her. Elena seems to respect Olga a lot. And, most importantly, she believes in her coach which is very important. I think she is on the right direction to be a better player.

Good news, Alyona isn't playing doubles this week.

This will give her some more time to rest, and more time to concentrate on winning another title

Yeah! I agree. Elena cannot play 2 matches a day. It's too much. AI is a one-week tournament. If she played both doubles and sigles, she would run out of gas in the important match like Nasdaq 100. It's a wise decision.

Elena will play Kostanic tomorrow. It's not gonna be that easy cuz Kostanic has played some matches here already. Elena needs to get used to the surface. However, I believe she can do it. This tournament is her good memory. She will do her best. Good luck, Elena.
