Elena if she's on should win in two sets, if she's not so good, then three.

If she's off, she'll lose.

hmm..if we can probably be sure of one thing,then that it will be a very long match,maybe even a 3 setter(which is,at least for lena,not unusual..),because both are very enduring and top-conditioned players,as well as versatile.but as patty is one of my big favs,of course i hope she wins!! :kiss: :kiss:

id go this far and say:even if she gets her game on,there will surely no "easy" sets at all,because patty does not give the slightest quarter away,thats for sure...and without wanting to sound unfair:the "flattering and bounce"factor is easily on lenas side,so....but hey,the best shall win,right?? :kiss: :kiss: patty-baby!!

She gave quite a few quarters away in those semi-tank jobs at the USO R16 and the AO quarterfinal, though, don't you think?

Elena if she's on should win in two sets, if she's not so good, then three.

If she's off, she'll lose.
Same view.

i think, you know, the problem is not people saying stuff on message boards, but what people are actually doing in the streets. It's a big difference. On this board for the most part people respect each other. It's good to be concerned with civility but overall the board is a reasonable place for discussion and arguing.

Lena could end up 7th at the end, but it also depends on how Nadia does in this tourney. :)

:haha: Patty loves the net. :scratch: She's not very good at the net, where did you get the idea she was good?

Anyway, I think Patty will win in three. :drool:

i don't like that lena's the glaring favorite :scared:

Patty likes the net and Elena love do pass shots ;)

if Patty comes to net Elena would be better advised to hit the ball to her than go for a passing shot :lol: Patty has great touch at net at time but technically she's a pretty poor volleyer - she rarely puts the ball away.

The surface is definitely in Dementieva's hands. I feel like she's developed a mental edge over Patty of late as well - but mainly it's been well documented and stated by Patty herself that Elena's game doesn't play to her strengths because the relatively weak sliced serve goes to Patty's pretty average backhand.

Patty needs to take the initiative in this match or simple hope Elena is due for a lapse and just put the balls in case.

Patty has so many matches against certain players that could produce the constrating results.
