Russia's Elena Dementieva remains doubtful for this week's Australian Open after succumbing to 'heat illness'. Dementieva pulled out of the Sydney International on Friday after falling victim to the Australian summer when on-court temperatures soared towards 50 degrees Celcius (122.00F).
The French and U.S. Open runner-up spent two days in bed trying to recover but was still unable to hit a ball by Sunday afternoon.
"This is the first day I've been able to get out of bed," she told Reuters. "I feel like I'm getting better but I'm still not 100 percent."
Dementieva, seeded sixth in Melbourne, is due to play Ukraine's Alyona Bondarenko in the first round on Tuesday but said she would not make a final decision on her fitness until Monday.
"It depends how I train tomorrow. I will decide then," she said.
Dementieva was not scheduled to practice on Sunday but went on one of the outside courts for an impromptu session with her coach Olga Morozova.
She spent about 40 minutes on the court, running and stretching, and throwing the medicine ball to her trainer
