The HK Exhibition

how many of you would come to the exhibition?

This is an exhibition and surely the players' mood do matter to what they will show. It seems that the whole crowd is going to support Maria. It's quite bad to Elena especially 'vs. Maria' is the opeining match. From what I saw in years, Elena played better when somebody's cheering for her, played quite bad when nobody's support her and somebody's teasing on her DFs.

I do hope I could see something new and powerful from Elena in such meaningless exhibition. But I'm afraid if the crowd is not for her, she may just give up and practise nothing which harm her AO practise.

Could someone give ideas about how to cheer for her? Probably we may be the only group to support her

I will go.

At least I won't be cheering for Maria! Please don't worry. I just hope Lena enjoys it.

Hope she plays great in Australia!

SHE WIIIIIIIIIIIIINNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN 6-7 (2/7), 6-3, 6-1
Here a little article about her match.

Dementieva upsets Sharapova in opener
Russian world number four Elena Dementieva upset Wimbledon champion Maria Sharapova with a come-from-behind 6-7 (2/7), 6-3, 6-1 victory to make a winning start in the Watsons Water Champions Challenge on Wednesday.Dementieva didn't let the loss of an opening set distract her as she won the all Russian encounter in just under two hours with her brand of power tennis.Dementieva, 23, who reached last years Grand Slam finals at the French and US Opens, said she was pleased to have beaten Sharapova having lost to her rival three times from four previous encounters."I think it's a very nice start for the year, especially against a good player. I did a lot of positive things today. I did pretty good for my first match," said Dementieva, who is making her fourth visit to Hong Kong."My serve needs improving and I think it was probably the weakest link of my game last year. My game is improving. It (my serve) really helped me today and it was nice to play like that.
