Lena sucked and losted - Zurich

8 - Daniela Hantuchova vs Paola Suarez
Elena Bovina vs Qualifier/LL
Nadia Petrova vs WC - Marie-Gaďané Mikaelian
Bye vs 4 - Elena Dementieva

You can't ask for a better draw than this...

Qualifier in the 1st round... then Daniela/Paola just to get to the QF!

Then, possibly Lena D... who has to be getting fatigued both mentally and physically now. Or Nadya, who's playing brainless lately.

This is a wonderful chance for Lena to do well in another Tier I! That would be 3 straight!

But... one match at a time. Lena needs to focus for every match. She desperately needs wins to keep her ranking up... and to keep her confidence up.

UDACHI LENA!!!

Lets hope that Lena can keep her recent form up or otherwise the best draw is shit

Lena also plays doubles at Zurich. Like last week she teams up with "Grandma Elske"
1st rd: Bovina/Callens - Loit/Pratt

Udachi Lena

Lena also is defending her Zurich win last year with Justine.

Lena should take a lesson from Justine...

Stop playing doubles.

Winning these types of matches is probably just as important as beating Lindsay and Jennifer.
Lena can beat everyone outside the big four. Now, beat the players like Pistolesi. The good second level players. Lena will see at least two of them here.
And this tournament is one more step in Lena's rise to the elite.
GO LENA!

That is exactly true...

Lena needs to figure out how to beat the lower players, while not having her top game. That's the next step.

These matches won't be easy, either... she'll be facing a Top 50 player in the 1st round... then probably Paola, who will make Lena work for every point.

You're right about giving up doubles. If Lena does reach her second straight semi-final, it's too much of a distraction to be hanging around for a doubles match.
Lena is getting too good to play both.

I really want that Dementieva match this week. And the Sharapova match in Quebec.
With the Fed Cup coming up, Lena can remove any doubt about her deserving to be on the team.
With the Olympics coming next year, 2004 is perfect for Lena to break through.
And I love that two-handed backhand.

Udachi Lena.

SF's in Zurich.

Decent showing in Quebec.

You'll be Top 15 by the end of the year... and who would have thought that?

If Lena's healthy, it's Molik in the first round. The only time they've played is in New Haven two months ago. Lena won in two competitive sets.
Molik has had a good run in the qualifiers, beating Sveta and Granville in straight sets.

Good matchup for Lena... I'd rather her face Molik than say Serna or Pisnik.

Molik plays like Lena, except not as well... and even though Alicia qualified, she's not playing as well as she did earlier this year.

Lena plays well... she will win.

If Lena plays well, she's in the semis. Now, Lena, please play well.
