You dont need to be that much of a fighter to win the 3rd set against players like Cargill and Cohen Aloro.

Elena is a big fighter!!!!! What the hell is your problem with her, did she beat one of your favourites. Elena D is a very sweet girl, and i wish her all sucess in the future, and hopefully someday she can get a slam which she deserves!!!

Elena has made the finals of 2 out of the last 3 majors. In 2004, she's the only player to reach 2 slam finals.

The match against Smashnova was never completed. But she ran Anna into the ground.

Elena used to lose a lot of 3 set matches, I'm glad she's improving this statistic. Its all down to experience!

Good luck Elena! :D

Elena is definitely a fighter and exciting to see when she comes back to win after losing a set. But some of those matches should have been a straight win for Elena.

A top player with a serve of Elena,s is really a huge fighter.

No player is a fighter enough winning on breaking her opponents, and surviving a play she can't even hold a serve.
Remember that Elena wins majority of the points in her matches in long rallies.
She is really a fighter!
of course second to Justine. ;)

Just because I disagree that shes a fighter suddenly I must have a problem with her :rolleyes:
Some people are way too sensitive! Not everyone has to continuously praise Elena, if you want to hear that go to Elena's forum, not GM.

Or maybe cuz you'll never like her and will always find an excuse (mosf of the times stupid excuses, btw) for saying bad things on her and never admiring her qualities, as if she didnt have any :rolleyes:

And if you dont like a player, just skip this thread or go to your favourites players' forums ;) :)

But have you taken into consideration the fact that she needs not be fighting out there. A player with her abilities should not be losing a set to love to Ansley. She is too good a player, who needs not enter into dog fights. What should be routine straight sets win is compromised by that atrocious serve. God I get embarrassed for her when she serves! She could be the number 1 player if not for that serve!

Elena tends to fight more when she is behind in the score and that explains all those 3 setters. Plus she is usually a slow starter, needs a set to warm up :p

Elena, U rock girl!

i totally agree that Dementieva is a fighter. that is quite simply the best word to describe her IMO.
TC
____________________________
Women's Match of the Day

Hasselt - Final
Elena Dementieva (1) def. Elena Bovina (3) 0-6 6-0 6-4

The truly astonishing thing about this match is, it was even stranger than the score. The two finalists didn't just trade bagel sets. After they split the first two, Bovina went up 4-1 in the third, and had triple break point for 5-1. But she lost that game, and the four that followed -- and then had break points on Dementieva again, but couldn't convert.

Talk about a match where Russian Blonde Disease was the biggest single factor!

Or put it another way: This match went 6-4 in the third, and lasted only one hour and 32 minutes.

Nonetheless, after three blown finals this year (the two Slams and Miami, and nothing smaller than Miami), Dementieva wins her first title in just over a year, since Shanghai 2003. Her record since the Olympics is an impressive 12-2.

In terms of points, though, this didn't mean much for Dementieva. It's only a Tier III, and the top player she beat was #17 Bovina. #6 she was, and #6 she remains, and she'll need another title, somewhere, if she is to move above that. The good news is, she's #6 in the Race also, and with more than a 400 point lead over the #9 player. We don't know when the WTA's oh-so-conservative calculations will qualify Dementieva, but as of now, we say she has qualified -- assuming the WTA doesn't plug in a wildcard. (Which, as of right now, would mean pulling Maria Sharapova out of the Championships to replace her with Jennifer Capriati or Venus Williams. Hm.)

Bovina, too, finds herself right where she started, at #17. But it's more important in terms of her year-end standing. Bovina has a lot to defend in the next few weeks (207 points at Filderstadt, 102 at Zurich, 48 at Linz). In the Race, she still stands below #20. This dramatically improves her chances of ending the year on the good side of that number.

In the strange footnotes department, Dementieva has been bageled four times this year (Sydney vs. Cargill, Roland Garros vs. Smashnova, Olympics vs. Molik, and here). In every case except the Olympics, she won the match.

Elena was playing much better in the third.

It wasn't a great match, but it showed who is the stronger mentally of the two and who is the more aggressive and can keep it in the court.

Bovina needs to mix up her groundies to keep them in. Elena D just battled and took charge in the third! :)

Elena is definately a great fighter. (Except in some finals :rolleyes: )

When she was pl;aying agaionst Maria in the YEC, even when she was hopelessly down in the final set, she wouldn't let a point go by without putting her all into evry shot, she made every single point a battle. The same against Kuznetsova at Indian Wells. When she's in that mood you have to battle to beat her.

Actually, that's one of the new rules. Everyone is required to praise Lena now. It's really easy once you get the hang of it.:)

When you get yourself in trouble, you have to fight and find a way out of it. Therefore in my book, she is a fighter.

I however totally agree, that she shouldn't get into such predicaments, but her injury and weather conditions did affect her game yesterday. She pulled through so props for that Elena! ;)

Good luck against Patty!!
