Who is Lena's rival?

Oh, of course, I know. Lena has no rivals, no competition, she is just the best. Yet they still compel her to play matches rather than just handing her the trophies she deserves. Who do you most like to see Dementiated?

Gisela Dulko: two big upsets of the Golden Goddess

Hingis: provided us with two special Lena moments: Filderstadt and Tokyo

Nastya: Friendly rivalry between players and fans, loooooooong history makes this one special.

Sveta: Maybe they've made up over "Medicinegate" but US Open loss still stings

JHH: bad habit of beating on Lena makes it sweeter when she wins

Mary Pierce: US Open '05. Fed Cup was only partial revenge.

Masha: TOB can only compete with Lena on the court

Venus: Got Elena's gold medal, but Elena has had some good wins against the big WS.

I am going for the queen of darkness ,Nastya ,to me thats the match up that makes little sense ...I mean ,Davenport ,Kim ,Justine etc ,when they are fully on they are almostimpossible to beat ,so losing to them is understandable..Nastya on the other hand is a great player and I would expect her to beat Lena now and again ,but not the amount of times she has ,Lena has way way to much firepower ,she should be winning 7 times out of 10 ,so thats the biggest rival I think..

I guess they are close friends and thats what makes it special ,but i dread Nastya looming up in lenas quarter ,although shes been redressing the balance a little lately with wins in Moscow and Tokyo..

Hm ...tough....Nastya would be a direct choice but the history with Mary Pierce can't be forgotten...so I guess ... hmm .......really tough...But I'll go with Mary Pierce because I don't like her at all ....she's not a fair player ...{sorry for those who sustain her }

Go LenaD !!

I voted for Nastya, but honestly I think that Lena herself is the biggest opponent

Maria Sharapova.

Happiness is like a cat. If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you. It will never come. But if you pay no attention to it and go about your business, you'll find it rubbing up against your legs and jumping into your lap. - William Bennett

How can it be anyone other than Nastya? So many matches such intense drama in many of those matches.

Next would be Pierce in my eyes due to the US Open stunt. I'll go to my grave believing that Pierce wasn't injured in any way. I'm not sure if I've ever been so angry while watching live tennis then that match. Even my roomate who doesn't watch tennis except when I am hates Pierce now because of that match.

This works for me.

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.
