you know what? i'm not happy with this match but lena is an incredible fighter. she was down 1-4 in the final set and she won the next 5 games in a row to win the match. you guys can make fun of her DF's but she has the makings of a great player...she refuses to lose.

now lena fix that serve PLEASE

Lena, any more matches like this and you'll be the least popular player on the tour--'cause all your fans will be dead from heart attacks!

shes an awesome fighter for sure. and the fact that her serve is a sitting duck makes her even more incredible.

amazing effort elena, incerdible, she has the fighting spirit even when she is playing horrible she never gives up, she refuses to lose.

I don't think she was serving shit, I think wind severely affected her.

Justine was struggling too, so I knew Elena would be a bit shaky. But to come back from a double break down shows her nerves of steel and dedication when required.

Elena is a tough tough player. She just needs to get that motion sorted even more to ensure on days like this, she doesn't go walkabout.

Good luck Elena tomorrow :) (heart attack over)

I think that covers just about the range of emotion during that match.

Sometimes you have to win ugly, and thats what Lena did today (well as ugly as you can get with Lena :hearts: )

Well Lena ,only you could get away with 17Dfs and still win ,we cannot question your fighting ability at all!!

Well Srebotnik u sure put up one hell of a fight thats for sure ,no doubt helped by Lena handing over a heap of free points but still ,sorry love but YOU HAVE BEEN DEMENTINATED!!

indeed Max, i'm sitting with a bloody soaked wet t-shirt here now, got nearly a heart attack indeed.....

OMFG I am sooooo happy that Lena has won this, i just knew Lena wouldn't give up and come back and win from the moment i popped in to follow Lena's match...

It didn't look good when she went down 4-1 in the third...I thought for sure she had punted the match. But I should have known better than to give up on Lena. But her serving was quite a contrast from her five-ace performance yesterday.

What were the weather conditions like?

Great comeback from Elena. I thought she was done for sure. She really cleaned up her serve in the final set. Only 1 double. She will need to play better tomorrow if she is to get to the final though.

17 doubles faults ... :help:

But at least Elena fought back from 1-4 down in the final set :yeah:

Congrats! :kiss:
And tough luck for Katarina. Still, she had a good tournament and should be proud of managing to push a tough challenge to a top-5 player :)

There must be something about that wind!

Justine was double faulting like crazy.

So. Did Elena win the 3rd set, or did katarina choke?

Again her serve dissapeared. I don't know what happened. She wasn't hitting as hard. She wasn't moving as well but when it she was down 4-1 in the third set. She just held on for dear life and let Katarina give her the match. Katarina played a good match though. She moved dementieva around. She came to net. Her angles on some the winner even Dementieva couldn't run down. She just got tight at the end and it cost her.

17 doubles.... was she slicing the serve or hitting flat?

Either way, a win's a win, and after 2 relatively comfortable matches, I hope no one expected Elena to deprive us of her trademark give-everyone-heart-attacks-3-setters. :p

Semifinal is a good result and she has a good chance, although Patty will be an unbelieveably tough opponent. She's kinda snuck through the draw unnoticed, despite some really good results.

I seriously hope you can take the title now that Lindsay is out. It would be great to see you win your first Tier I! :)

She did good, but now she needs to really focus against Patty. I genuinely believe Patty is the favourite.

Elena needs to be ready to work her groundies well and work for the points, it will not be easy.

For Lena to make a run at #1, it's important to win a Tier I semi against an opponent like Patty.
