Lena in Berlin

Lena plays Zi Yan, who is 19 and ranked about #170. In doubles, Lena stays with her Warsaw partner -

Ruano Pascual / Suarez vs Bye
Peschke / Rittner vs Dementieva / Sprem (WC)
Pratt / Sharapova vs Tarabini / Tu
Bovina / Chladkova vs Callens / Mandula

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Udachi Lena! But it's too bad she doesn't like to play doubles with one of her compatriots.

Lena said "I'm good friends with all the Russian girls, we are like one big team."
That was in Estoril. But I guess she's better friends with Chladkova and Callens.

Lena is fortunate again to get another winnable 1st round match.

Then, a loss to Sveta.

Sveta had a bandage on her left thigh today. I will not be surprised if she withdraws.

Sveta is so thick and strong and plays so much tennis that she's going to suffer from alot of muscle strains in her legs in her career. She just needs to know when to pull back and take some time off.

I hope Bovina gets to play Kuznetsova in Berlin. If Lena could pull off the upset that would do wonders for her confidence.

It won't.

Lena already has 2 wins over higher ranked players this year (Serna, Dokic) that were "right place, right time" scenarios.

She'd need another week like Moscow or Filderstadt, to build the confidence... but she'd just get injured again in a month, so it's a moot point.

Actually, this is a good draw, for a Tier I. Sveta might withdraw, and Lena D. hasn't played. Lena can do well here. If she plays decent tennis.

Last week, Lena's seed in the 2nd round withdrew.

It didn't work out so well.

Schiavone beat Mauresmo. So she was playing well. This could turn out to be a soft section.
It's certainly better than being in the top half.

Good luck in Berlin. At least to be seeded at RG seems more than a possibility.
