Well done Elena, you are going better and better with every match. Next is Aravane Rezai. :p

Jan 8th, 2009, 12:00 AM
Rezai is a strong girl who Lena can move around. This is good preparation for Melbourne

Elena had Shahar 2nd serve for lunch once she got going. If Elena stays in current form, she may be the one to win her first Slam instead of Jelena. I know she is scheduled for Sydney next week to face the stiffer competition but Elena competes very well against them.

As much as it pains me to say this, i think dementieva is going to be a threat at AO. i think she's going to suprise everyone this tournament. hope i'm wrong though.

If Lena wins this tournament, does she move up from #4?
Anyone know?

So, Elena will get a Top 4 seed in Austrailia right?

Jan 8th, 2009, 02:34 AM
I want to say that Elena will be the 4 seed for AO no matter what Ana does this week.

Jan 8th, 2009, 05:34 AM
Nice job Elena:hug:

good job!!!

Jan 8th, 2009, 06:16 AM
Elena :yeah:

Jan 8th, 2009, 07:28 AM
Sad for Shahar :sad: Couldn't do much against Lena... I saw the first set, well, nothing really bad. Shahar was hitting the ball pretty well but it wasn't sparkling enough. Elena hit way harder and could put her into trouble pretty easily. This 2nd serve also is such a burden for her game, it gives too many opportunities to the opponent and since she is not very reactive, the point was lost since the very beginning :lol:

Good to see Elena in form though! Now another meeting with Aravane...

Jan 8th, 2009, 07:34 AM
At least Shahar is winning more games each time. :shrug:

2 and 0 in AO last year
2 and 1 in Wimbly
3 and 1 this time.

Should be 3 and 2 next time. :o

Jan 8th, 2009, 08:26 AM
:yeah: Elena!

Jan 8th, 2009, 01:54 PM
Lena won't be playing anyone in the top 20 this week.
Too bad Nadia got ill

Jan 8th, 2009, 04:32 PM

Jan 8th, 2009, 06:16 PM
Elena always a threat, to me in ever slam!
