That's from her interview, yes it's in Russian. ;)
She also says she continues to work with Krajicek on her serve! :)


Российские теннисистки скучают без своего тренера
6.07.2005 20:33 | "СПОРТ-ЭКСПРЕСС"


На сегодняшней пресс-конференции в Москве, посвященной предстоящему полуфиналу FedCup, журналистов интересовало, как сборная чувствует себя без своего капитана: Шамиль Тарпищев сегодня находился в Сингапуре на сессии МОК. Теннисистки - Елена Дементьева, Анастасия Мыскина, Динара Сафина и Вера Звонарева - сказали, что скучают без него, однако в команде хороший тренерский состав и на подготовке отсутствие Тарпищева не отражается.
Кроме того, у Елены Дементьевой поинтересовались, кто теперь является ее личным тренером. "Мы хорошо поработали с Ольгой Морозовой, - сказала Лена, - но после Уимблдона наше сотрудничество прекратилось. Тренер по ОФП у меня сейчас - Алексей Жук, а над подачей продолжаем работать с Рихардом Крайчеком".
На вопрос, как Дементьева относится к отсутствию Дэвенпорт, она сказала, что, конечно же, нашей сборной будет легче. А затем с улыбкой добавила: "Победительница и финалистка Уимблдона в одной команде - это, пожалуй, слишком".

I don't know if this is good or bad. I don't think Olga travelled with her much, so maybe it's no big deal. Stay with Krajicek, hon, anything to help that serve!!!

At today's press conference in Moscow devoted to forthcoming semifinal FedCup, journalists interested, as the combined team feels without the captain: SHamil' Tarpischev today was in Singapore at session MOK. Tennisistki - Elena Dementyev, Anastas Myskina, Safin's Dinar and Belief Zvonareva - have told, that miss it, however in a command good trainer's structure and on preparation absence Tarpischeva is not reflected.
Besides at Elena Dementevoj have taken an interest, who now is its personal trainer. " We have well worked with Olga Morozovoj, - Lena has told, - but after Wimbledon our cooperation has stopped. The trainer on OFP at me now - Alexey Zhuk, and above submission we continue to work with Rihardom Krycek ".
On a question as Dementyev concerns to absence Devenport, she has told, that, certainly, it will be easier than our combined team. And then with a smile has added: " the Winner and finalistka Wimbledon in one command is, perhaps, too ".

My Russian is horribly rusty, but it sounds like she's going to work with someone named Alexei Zhuk, although she's still working with Krajicek.

She has been 'working' on that serve for like two years and still no improvement!!! Lost cause i'd say!

I actually watched her 2nd or 3rd round match agianst I cant remember who, the one she won 9-7.. and I was one row behind her mum and Olga, and then was shocked to see Richard sit down with them as well.. She also had a pair of fat old russian blokes in her camp.. was surreal to be sitting next to these people Ive only seen on TV!!

This could be a wrong decision. :sad: Olga has brought Dementeva soo far over the past 18months :hearts:

Olga is a smart coach. Hopefully another Russian will get her. :bounce:

No, that's her fitness trainer. She has Richard for the serve.

Thanks a lot for the interview, Lady!

I think Olga did alot for her confidence & getting her to believe. When did they start working together....It was b4 she had her success last year wasn't it.

@ least she is attempting to fix her serve:) Some other players should see that its 'OK' to ask for help from an expert...

Elena will have better serve if she continues to improve. I am glad that she takes it seriously. What a nice things that Richard does for her! ;)

That's part of coaching nowadays. You have to get along with the player, and her traveling parent.

This is from last summer -

Davenport says she has a heck of time returning the Russian’s sidewinder slice serve. "You always know it’s going to the forehand, but you never know if she’s going to hit at 105-mph or 50-mph," Davenport said. "But from the baseline, she’s one of the toughest groundstrokers out there."

100% true Lindsay :)
However Lena's servestarted going to backhand sometimes, and there are no 50 mph shitty serves ;) at least now...

Were you implying that Olga hasn't got along well with Vera?


By the way, thanks a lot for that lovely picture of Lena!

If it's Vera who had something to do with this latest "development" ... :help:

Anyway, I think it's a bad decision. Olga has done a lot to help Lena improve her game and confidence. Lena, from 2003, was a completely different player to the 2001/2002 version when Olga came along.

Only time will tell whether it's bad or good.

Yes, she has done a lot.

But maybe Lena wants to improve even further, and Lena might think that to continue working with Olga would lead to nowhere?

Maybe. Though I wonder just how well Lena knows her own game, since she really hasn't made much improvement to her weak links since she made her debut back in 1999.

Off course she did.
I read here people were saying that she basically had no backhand in 2000.

Lena knows it perfectly! Otherwise she wouldn't have been in the top 10 for so long.
since she really hasn't made much improvement to her weak links since she made her debut back in 1999.
The only weak link is her serve. But Lena can't do much about it because she has had problem with her shoulder.

Yes, it's true that Olga has done a lot for Elena, and I am a little disappointed... but maybe change now is a good thing? Maybe a coach with a different perspective can work on her serve and volleys more effectively than previously possible with Olga.

Just a thought... I hope I'm right :)

I think Lenas problem is not how to play tennis,even her service is o.k. as long as she is in front by 6-1 4-1.there are no doublfaults in this moment.
the problem is the mental strength,she would need some killer instinct and change her character to become much harder. but this is not what a usual trainer can give her.
and first of all:who really wants her to do this?
me not,I like this lovely person that she is.

I still believe Lenad can win a slam with or without that serve of hers. She just needs to stop listening to everyone tellling her her serve is a liabilty, she could work on her stengths instead.
Have people forgotten that when Jen won all her three slams her serve was nowhere near what it is now, she was the queen of double faults and three setters but her return game always won the day for her.
