Which will be the first Tier I Elena wins?

I have a gut feeling that it might be Pan Pacific '06. Elena hasn't gone past the QF there (yet) but despite the serve, I think the fast carpet surface will ultimately favour her big groundies. Plus she's athletic and has great cardio - point in case, her run through the US Open 2004 - so the returns from her opponents probably won't trouble her much

So which Tier I tournament do you think will be Elena's first to win?

Hmmm, I think it could be Moscow or Charleston. Lena got good results at Moscow in the past years, and I have a good feeling when i hear that she will play Charleston. This year I thought she could make it to the final at Charleston, and...surprise, surprise, she did it!
Miami or Indian Wells are possibilities too.

Elena Dementieva
Maria Kirilenko

Patty Schnyder, Anastasia Myskina
Marat Safin, Lleyton Hewitt, David Nalbandian

I'd say Moscow. She usually plays well there and It would be great to see her win in Mother Russia.

The woods are hopeless. Don't waste your time, they will be destroyed. So will the marsh. It is a losing game mankind has played for more than a century. Sadness is what you are, do not deny it. The universe is a lonely place, a painful place. This is what we can share between us, period.

I hope it will not be Moscow. Why? Because it's so late in the season, I hope she will win a Tier I tourney before that and then win in Moscow...

No.

sigh. I hope it is not going to take forever anyway, with reference to Lenamania 05', the greatest chance to win a tier I is still MOSCOW.

Well, Charleston or Miami I think. And Moscow would be the cherry on the cake

Thank you, Elena
