excuse me... she didn't just win a title, she came back in 2 matches against two top 5 players... if this is not showing mental strength, what else?

I concede that it depends on the confidence, but with Lena, how much did she have going into this tournament? in her case it be the opposite, mental strenth will help confidence to be regained again.

I want to clarify what I meant when I repled to tenn_ace that yes, I have changed my mind regarding my first post.

What I meant, and should have said, was that I've changed my mind about what I said in the beginning portion of that post:
"I think we can rule out those two players immediately in this discussion" (referring to Elena D. & Anna K.).
(Though I still believe we can rule out Anna, until she proves otherwise.)

In other words, I did not mean to imply that I suddenly believe Elena D. has vaulted to the top spot among Russians in mental strength. I DID mean that it is DEFINITELY no longer the case that she can be ruled out of the running before the discussion even begins.
