What's your expectation for Lena in 2005 ?

I just saw a delayed telecast of the Kremlin Cup quarterfinal match between Lena (Lena won 6-1 6-3) and Sveta and goodness me, Lena served very well with zero doublefaults in the match. Her toss was right most of the time which shocked the Eurosports commentators as they were expected to mock at her serve again. After watching this match, I think there is some reason to look forward to next year with optimism.


Since right it's the off-season, let's discuss on what do you hope for Lena to acheive in 2005.

Firstly, I would dearly want Lena to win the French Open at last and give a wonderful and truly happy speech in French this time.

Secondly, she should be involved in the Fed Cup next year and be part of the winning defending champion.

Thirdly, let's hope that this time next year, her serve is no longer an issue.

i) No more crappy serve, no make more than 5 DF in a match, stronger 2nd serve

ii) No more GS 1ST ROUND LOSS

iii) Win at least 5-6 titles (some GS probably )

iv) Qualify for YEC (and do better there)

v) Year end Top 10

well these are my expectation, below are my dream in 05 :

i) win the Elena Slam

ii) world no.1 !

iii) winning streaks (more than 25)

iv) most popular female tennis player in the world
(i have to say the most popular now is MaSha :retard: , when people think of women tennis, they will say: "Sharapova! oh sharapova! Sharapova is stunning! I wanna fuck!")

v) The BF

Well i wanna Lena to play her best , stay healthy and above all be HAPPY that all i realy want ,a happy smiling Lena more than anything else and of course i wanna see her win a slam ,I really feel she can do it ,she came so close twice so she has a great chance.
I wanna see her serve improved like everybody else and less first round loses ,we cannot expect her to win Everything ,thats just unreasonable but she can get some more titles this year.
I get so much pleasure just from watching her and seeing her beautiful smiling face i am happy just to see her playing.

You know I can imagine something like that in the news paper

-January: Semi-final in Australia for Dementieva...New serve for Dementieva, be good she is here
-Febuary: Win French tournement Open Gaz de France, and defeat Sharapova in semi final and Serena William in final
-March: Two semi-final and again a title in Miami) for the new Dementieva
-April: Two final ( Amelie island, Charleston) and a title in roma for Dementieva, she is getting close from the place number 1
-May: The incredible story of the new number 1 in the world after her win in French Open, Roland Garros, winning Myskina in the Semi final. First Russian girl for the number 1. How can the world can not be in love with Dementieva ?
-June: Everybody said that Dementieva don't play well in Wimbledon...So a semi-final is a good result and a win against Sharapova in quater final after a big match during 3 hours.
-July: The Russia is in the Final of the Fed Cup. Two won match for Dementieva, and a incredible double team with Dementieva and Myskina (Who can beat them?)
- August: After win San Diego and final in Los Angeles and New Haven, Elena Dementieva win her second Grand Slams in the year at the Us Open after an imbelliveble tournement winning against Mauresmo, Henin, and Williams. She is the number 1 and she diserved it.
- September: Russia win Fed Cup with the Unbeatable Dementieva and Myskina (the two diabolic sisters). Dementieva give the last point of the victory for Russian team.
- October: Final in Filderstadt and win Kremlin Cup and Hasselt. How did she do?
- November: The win of Dementieva in the Championships in Los Angeles. The story of this sweet woman, warriors, generous, funny, always a smile on her face, the (little) woman who the public love her but stay very discrete and simple. Number 1 in WTA tour and Number one in all the Heart of public. Last year some people laugh about her serve but this year she show that her new serve is a new arm.



Maybe I dream but it's allways good to dream

I think Elena will make (and hopefully win) one GS final this year. I also expect her to win two or three titles.

I like her odds at the FO best, as the clay makes her shaky second serve less of an issue and lets her rely more on her groundstrokes.

I also predict better doubles results as she settles into a partnership with Sugiyama.

-I would really like it if she win a Grand Slam. Finals were great this year, but it was even worse to see her lose in them.
-I want her to have a good record in finals.
-Find a way to beat Nastya!
-FIX THE SERVE!
-anf finally take over the #1 Russian spot.

just a better 2005 season than 2004, that means a Grand Slam (or two) more titles, and less first round losses, or unexpected losses, and the highest ranking ever (#3, #2, #1) That's what I expect/wish/dream/hope

Elena Dementieva

you're my favourite - how lucky can any man be?

I'm expecting:
More consistency (less first round losses)
Improvement on the serve (less double faults, bit more depth, variety and pace)
Those things are almost a given from my perspective

Now, I'm wanting:
A GREAT improvement on the serve (rivals Davenport and Serena)
A GRAND SLAM win
World Number One
That's not likely to happen soon, but who knows? Maybe she will come out of nowhere and completely improve her serving and consistency next year? Let's hope so

me hopes ... :
1. Lena will play more consistently in her first and second matches of each tournies...another word no more 1st round loss.
2. Win 3 titles up with at least 1 tier I title...or even GS
3. move up in ranking by at least finishing yr 2005 in top 5
4. At some pts of the yr...be in top-3
5. Beat higher ranked players quite often...
6. Beat Ana...Masha and Serena at least once...
7. Play FedCup and win it as Lena deserved this yr...
8. Has her own officially website which let us have more access on Lena regarding Lena's tennis stuff...
9. Most importantly me wishes Lena is healthy all yr long..(with healthy and happy Mommy Vera and Olga )

me omits SERVE issue...
I dun want to hope much...
Butttttttttt if Lena gets better serve with less DFs and more speedy 2nd serve...me'd be over the moon

"Logan Tom" is the best!!!
