well i really think Elena has chance against them all ,she isnt the most consistant player out there ,and sadly may never be ,thats just how she is ,but when she plays well ,and today was one of those days ,she can beat anyone ,she has some of the most powerful and acurate groundstrokes I have ever seen and can run for hours and hours ,she can be mentaly tougher than steel and now shes serving better ,the huge weakness is becoming a lesser problem...shes gonna still have her silly losses ,thats Elena ,but she knows she can beat them all ,and there are times when shes the best player in the world bar none ,but she just doesnt have the same consistancy as the Belgians et al , but shes got the Talent.......i mean minus 12 DFs I reckon she COULD have buried kim in two! ,but as it is ,she dealt her a big blow in sets 1 and 3 ,she was so powerful in the last set ,people talk about Kuz forehands etc ,but believe me ,and i know ,theres NOTHING like a blistering Elena forehand ,its a thing of beauty when it works ,she has immense power behind it.
