Re: The Elena Dementieva ONLY Fan Club vol.7
Lena's brilliant travel schedule (Moscow, Luxembourg, Doha) plus the fact she couldn't train much due to her injury (which she also said) would make it hard to acclimate, especially given how much she hates the heat. But she's been spraying excuses like a sprinkler since that match, very unlike her usual tightlipped demeanor.
I still take YEC even less seriously than Lena, so I'm not going to get to worked up about it either way, but I hope she gets her act back together in the off season and finds another "hitting partner" because right now her game and her attitude are not where they need to be. I disagree with Ross--I think she wants to play through 2012, but she needs to get her game back on track if she wants one more shot at making the OG, let alone another medal. She can do it, but she needs to be realistic about retooling her game at 29.
Pass the duct tape and super glue. Lena's done broke my heart one last time.
