From the picture she doesn't look healthy.

The temp at FCC was unusually cold, and muscles become very stiff.
It seemed to a problem for everybody this week. I don't think it's
a major problem.
Cross our fingers for a nice mild Sunday afternoon. :)

i think its more precautionary for dementieva cuz she was recovering from a strained hip last week

elena is miss straps of the tour.
i have never seen her without a meter of strapping at least :lol:
as some people said here - it's a mix of pre-caution and taking care of her hips and groin that she tends to injure slightly almost all the time (not enough an injury to retire, but it bugs, a bit like blisters).
at any cost, she moves amazingly well, so i really don't think you need to be worried.

The Russian Fed Cup team needs her healthy next week.
So am I rooting for a win today, and I want Lena to walk off the court with no limping.

Justine had tape on her left leg also...and on some missed first serves she bent down as if her leg was bothering her :(
I hope they're both healthy and able to produce a fun Finals match!
