Dementieva on clay???

How far can she go at the French Open after this brilliant week?
Could she beat the top seeds she might be in top 10 by then and a huge threat.

Elena is the hottest player on clay now... and previous history suggests that she'll lose 1st round then.

Elena's game is ideal for any surface, even grass.

On red clay, we'll have to wait and see. She made the Acapulco final and RG 4th round, so no reason why she cannot progress further.

She just needs to take a rest IMO and play only 1/2 warm-ups before the French.

I believe in her chances, go Elena!!

Smile Demmy!

Elena came through like a real champ when she whipped Lindsay D. I was greatly impressed by her strength and enormous stamina. Obviously she is in superb physical condition. Seems to me like her best is yet to come. She still needs to use her full body when she makes her serves. Good hip rotation, extension, and follow through will enable her to ace her opponents especially when she plays on hard surfaces. I predict that Elena will be the next WTA SUPERSTAR! Your thoughts, please.
