No more hopes for No3 in Rankings... Really bad match by Elena. On the other hand Kata plays very impressive!!! 82% Winning on 1st serve! No room for Deme...

Srebotnik was just too good.She played very well, rushing the net etc...
She choked a bit in 2nd set (having a bp for a 4-1 lead and letting Elena comeback)but she was really the better player today.

She is now #21, 70 points from Cibulkova. Another win will put her at #20.

oh my gosh, it was true that Lena tuday sucked a little, not a good feeling on the ball, but Kata served really well and played a very aggressive tennis.
I'm just sorry because Lena lost chance to become n.3 in the world and maybe after this year of victories she really deserves that position

btw a period of not so good results maybe it's normal after her incredible last season.
we'll wait for you at YEC ;)

I like both players so much :( dunno who deserved it more in my mind... Hope she can win the title, that'd make it all worth it considering who is left in the draw.

that's why I think that a qualifier can reach the final tomorrow
She's got the strokes and the confidence to repeat the win against Kuzzie (it's just a few weeks away... )

Kata Srebotnik is has just played amazingly good and entertaining tennis both here and at the US Open. It is a big ask, and I'm not suggesting she will, but if, just if, Kata could sustain this level of play for an entire year, she would be top 10 for sure, and I wouldn't entirely rule out top five. Whatever, I really hope we see Kata play at this level a lot more over the next couple of years. :bowdown:

It was expected....Srebotnik > Dementieva

Srebotnik when she is on can play some wonderful tennis. I like her. But I'm not sure how one can make a serious argument that she is a better player than Dementieva.

Saying Srebotnik > Dementieva without providing a case to back up that argument is just lazy posting. Now if you want to provide a serious in depth argument as to why you regard Srebotnik to be a better player than Dementieva I would be all for it. At the very least you would be providing us with a most entertaining post in all likelihood. But it wouldn't be easy, stats like win-loss record, tournaments won, success in slams, rankings, success against other top players etc all favour Elena. No matter how one cuts it, this result was an upset, and any bookmaker would back up that opinion. Kata's win was very deserved but it certainly wasn't expected by most despite Kata's current good form. But I hope you will have a go trying to back up this interesting comment anyway. :angel:

Well done Katarina, I really didn't think you could do it.

She seems to have taken a lot of confidence from the US Open, which is nice to see. I hope she takes this form and runs with it; with her talent she deserves to be much higher than in the 21-30 range.
