Lena had to save SP at 56* but fortunately she saved it and then won the tiebreak.

50th win of the year. :hearts::bounce:

- Malek falls to 12-30 in her career v. top 100 players.
- Dementieva improves to 50-15 this year, 9-7 in TBs (8-2 outside slams).
- Was down *0-3 and 4-5* in the tiebreak. :o
- 398 MD/Fed Cup wins this year. Just a SF here necessary to get 400.

My notes about anything pertaining to this match. Three-set win or standard Dulko loss next round.

This was one of those days where you just want to smack her upside the head with a 2x4, but she won.

Dulko is always tricky, so good luck Lena. Mommy Vera may want to stop by the lumberyard just in case . . .

Lena should bury Dulko. It depends how much she wants to play

a little rusty at the start, but now she shouldn't have any problems with Dulko

Hmmmmm The choking was average play for Demented.

Hmmmmm The choking was average play for Demented.

Except "Demented" did not choke at all today. Of course, bitterness would prevent a simpleton like you from seeing that.
