U.S. Open Series

Elena gets going in Carlsbad, Calif., this week as the No. 4 seed in the Acura Classic (they say it's in San Diego, but that's not quite true ... you have to travel north up the California coast a bit from San Diego to reach the tournament site at La Costa Spa and Resort, which is in Carlsbad, but I digress).....

Elena has the first-round bye and then gets the winner of Jill Craybas and Ashley Harkleroad. This is the same quarter as No. 5 seed Patty Schnyder who just finished second to Kim Clijsters at the Bank of the West Classic. Meghann Shaughnessy is also lurking, maybe third-round rematch like at Wimbledon. This is the bottom half of the draw where No. 2 is Maria Sharapova.

Cheers............

Elena gets the victory over Harkleroad 6-2, 6-2

Next up is the winner of Srebotnik vs. Mirza, who have yet to take the court as of this posting.

It's three-set Thursday on the courts in Carlsbad where three of four opening matches of the third round at the Acura Classic went the distance (following a delay due to wet courts).

Elena got past Sanza Mirza 6-2, 3-6, 6-3 despite 10 double faults.

Next will be the quarterfinals against the winner of Schnyder vs. Suárez, which followed Elena's match on the Grandstand Court.

Elena's run in the Acura Classic came to a halt Friday with a 6-4, 6-3 loss to Patty Schnyder, who is on a bit of a roll herself.

This coming week is the JPMorgan Chase Open in Carson, Calif. Stay turned for updates.

JPMorgan Chase Open

Elena is up to a 3 seed this week for the JPMorgan Chase Open at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif.

She's in the same half of the draw at No. 1 Maria Sharapova.

After her customary first-round bye, Elena will play the winner of Julia Schruff or a qualifier TBD. Doubles partner Flavia Pennetta is a possible quarterfinal opponent.
