I Feel A Major Upset Coming On...

This kid, Linetskaya seems to be taking advantage of Dementieva's poor serve. She has broken her twice already. That might be a big blow to Dementieva because she's defending finalist points. I'm keeping my eye on this one.

Dementieva is a FIGHTER!!!!!

I'm sure she will take this match - she has the experience and the skill and the nerve to hold out on tight and hard matches.

Linetskaya is strong for sure, but I prefer Elena.

Exclamation

I wouldn't be so quick to predict an upset. Linetskaya might have broken twice, but she was also broken twice. I say Demetieva wins this one, but she will not defend her finalist points.

It's not like Linetskaya has the best serve on tour, eh? Dementieva's fastest serve was at 109MPH while Linetskaya's was at 100MPH.

It's been a break-fest so far. I hope Dementieva gets through.

ugh...i love lena but i wish i could just expect her to win matches like serena

then again, linetskaya is top 20 bound so lena just got a hard draw. hopefully she'll pull this one out...and geez, lena is serving a LOT better, what do you guys expect? her fastest is 111 mph!

ROCK ON:
elena dementieva, serena williams, caroline wozniacki, ana ivanovic
david nalbandian, rafael nadal, andy murray, gael monfils, jo-wilfried tsonga
