Lena in Zürich

draw is out:

in the 1th round Lena has a bye, in the 2th round she plays ag. the winner of Molik-Farina-Elia, tough match but Lena has the chances in her recent form.
Possibly QF with Petrova or Raymond also tough but as said Lena can beat them...
then a SF with Momo, also winnable but again tough....


Good luck Lena , beat some top 5 players here, and show your form!!, and hopefully you can finish as the world no.4 this year

Elena Dementieva Forever!

i think the first half of the draw is a lot easier than the lower half.

Lower half there are Linzzz, Venus, MaSha (& serena belongs there also, but wd)

SOOOOO LenaDD plzzz DOOOOOOOOOOO your best HERE!!!!!!!!!!

I hope Elena will draw Anastacia early on. It looks as if Elena has no problem beating other Russians as long as the match-up isn't in a final.

Err... don't get too optimistic.

Molik will be a tough first opponent... Athens anyone? I am not a fan of Molik at all, even though I'm aussie, but I do know she has improved a lot this year and has beaten some good players...

And let's also not forget Lisa Raymond beat her a week ago in another first match.

I would like her to get past all these obstacles and beat Myskina this time... pref in a final.

Yeah, she'll definately play... she's second highest seed so she'll have a break till tuesday. The draw isn't too bad, just a typical Tier I draw

Good news... due to withdrawals from Davenport and S. Williams, the draw has changed. Elena no longer plays the winner of Molik/Farina-Ellis, as Zvonereva now plays them.

And Lisa Raymond is now playing Nadia Petrova.

Dementieva plays either Elena Bovina (whom she defeated in the Moscow semifinals last week) or Francesca Schiavone (a Moscow quarterfinalist).

Biggest threats to Dementieva in Zurich are: Mauresmo, Marsha, and V. Williams. That's not to say no one else is a threat of course.

Yes looks like its Bovine time again!!
Well starting to get bored with this but ho hum maybes Franco can beat her in rnd 1 its possible ,but anyways it really will depend on what frame of mind Lena is in ,if she is "on" then she will beat Bovine again BUT if she is "off" well who knows ,I think she will be "on" ,she has a good chance to go far again and make the latter stages and well maybe even win the sodding thing ,I expect she will not dwell on sundays loss ,she did loose in a final to a top 3 player after all not Rnd one to a 102er!!
So not a total disastrous loss at all,just dissapointing.

Elena is fifth in both the WTA Tour rankings and Porsche
Championship Chase standings. The top four in the Porsche list have
clinched spots in the season-ending event with four more spots up
for grabs. This may be Elena's final event before the big one in Los
Angeles (she's not entered in either event next week in Austria or
Luxembourg), so look for her to put in a solid effort this week to
lock up a spot in L.A.
