What a match by Elena! :speakles:

Despite the 9 DFs she played an excellent match. :worship: Without those 9 DFs she would've won more than 50% of her second serve points :bowdown: :lol: :eek: Only if there could be a tournament in Russia every week. :sad: :p

Dinara :hug:

One of the worst matches I have seen Safina play - and that's going some.

Good stuff from Elena on the whole.

Absolutley ugly match from Dinara. 6 winner to 35 ue. Nothing, and I mean nothing went right. Still, good tourny, get back to the practise court.

Elena :bigclap: :banana: :woohoo:

I'm so happy for you. Final of Moscow again :bounce: Serve was dodgey to begin with, but it got going. Solid from the back, take the title!!

Very solid play from Lena !! :yeah: :worship: ;)
But Dinara's implosion also helped. Glad that she hit all those DF's in the 1st games of the match.

Nice revenge from Rome loss last year. :tape: :help: :p

Signs on the old Lena on court again, that's great !! Going for her shots and not only hitting crosscourt balls. ;) :)

She knows she had to start playing better again, if she still wants to play the Olympics next year.

Hope she can keep it up from now on, tho I really doubt she'll win tomorrow, especially if Serena wins the other SF. That's why I'm going for Kuzzie now. ;)

Vamos Lena !! :) :) :)

How on earth did Dinara manage to do 35 Unforced Errors in only a total of 13 games???

Brie Whitehead is somewhere celebrating this as I think Dinara's got her record

If she won't be too much nervous tomorrow, she is the favourite to win the title.

Sorry Dinara but that sorta play wont cut it I am afraid so therefore YOU HAVE BEEN DEMENTINATED!

Elena made very few mistakes. Out of 18 errors nine were double faults, and I believe about three or four of those errors came at the 61 40 game.

She came to net beautifully, only missed two shots at net. Strong smashes, good swing volleys, excellent drop shots to counter Safina's drop shots, and a few amazing reflex volleys. Her inside out forehand is just the best inside out forehand on tour now. :drool: Ivanovic, eat your heart out. :hearts:

Amazing to be in a final again. I'm so proud of her. Rooting for Kuzzie in the final.

2004 Peak Lena's FH inside-out is untouchable :drool: Better than anyone else's when on.

Do you think it's still as good as it was back in 04, or no?

Do you think it's still as good as it was back in 04, or no?

Early days ... it could still all end in tears (especially against the mighty Rena).

Can't think of a better way to describe it ....I have noticed new INTENT from LenaD the last couple of weeks. :cool:

Viktymise
Oct 13th, 2007, 02:51 PM
Do you think it's still as good as it was back in 04, or no?

Well i don't think she looks for the FH inside-out as much as she used to in 2004, i think Morozova really developed and encouraged her to use that shot, it really was the shot that helped her the most getting to the RG finals in 04. I think her FH is a bit more versatile now though which will work well against Serena ;)

Wow. I wake up, and it wasn't a dream.

Please Lena, win tomorrow. Taking a title from Rena would be so sweet.

But I can't complain regardless of what happens. A Tier I final with such convincing play. Keep it up and there will be much to celebrate in '08.

Prizeidiot
Oct 13th, 2007, 03:07 PM
WOOPWOOPWOOPWOOP!!!

Where's this been all year?

Great work making it to the final.. had it beem anyone other than Serena in the final, I'd probably be feeling more confident about Elena's chances. But hopefully she can pull it out, she deserves a Moscow win after how close she has come in the last 4 years or so.

What Have They Done With The Real Elena?


That's what I want to know. I got home expecting to see that Elena lost, and was shocked to see that it was such an easy match. :eek: If Elena doesn't get nervous, she can definitely beat a slightly rusty Serena. Honestly, other than the serve, there's no reason Elena should lose to Serena tomorrow. Elena better move Serena around. I'm not going to get my hopes up, but as a true Elena fan, I'll be crashing into walls if she wins.:lol:
