Elena can't hit through Venus, nor is her defense up to snuff to handle Venus' bludgeons.

Five winners in Dubai, three winners in Stanford...she hit like 12 in their first match and around 15 in their Miami one. Think it was 13 or 14 in the Doha match last year.

Basically, Dementieva is screwed.

If Lena still had bangs, Venus would slap them clean off.

It's like the tournament directors said, "Let's plan an entire event around making Lena D. look at bad as possible." I hear they offered Msykina a couple million to come out of retirement just to beat Lena, but Myskina's answer was so contradictory and confusing they gave up and just gave her a first round match against Vee instead.

hrmm.... Venus owns Dementieva..... Dementieva has only won matches at the YEC once..... Its not looking good for her.... Venus can be in bad form and still manage to whoop up on Lena.... (standford)

My two favs against each other, I hope that both will qualify bor SF, but that is just not realistic!
If Venus doesnt play horrible tennis, she will win this, Elena hates the game of Venus, it got even worse over the last years.

But last yeah in Doha it was a pretty tough fight, and if this will go over 3 sets, Elena will have definetly an advantage!

Elena has to face venus first AGAIN? :o Just like last year... I was hoping for elena to build momentum and face one of the others first, guess that won't be happening...

Venus in 2.

Venus in two for sure. Can't wait.

depends on which Venus shows up.

even with this 9-2 score im always afraid of this match-up , but then again any 09 Venus match sends me straight into Coma :rolleyes:

A 9-2 head to head record does not automatically give Venus the win here because she's trying to come back from a knee injury and therefore no one knows how she's going to play.

It just so happens that Venus in recent years has always played well against Elena not allowing her to take control. Otherwise Elena has a game that can disrupt anyone.

Anyway it depends on Venus and how healthy she is and how well she plays. If she's so so, Elena would do good to take advantage.

So Venus in 2 if healthy.

Elena in 3 if not.

if we go by venus's tweets, she is hitting the ball really cleanly and playing well, so another smackdown me thinks

Vee in 2,

V-MAC
Oct 26th, 2009, 04:31 PM
This should just be the confidence boosting match that Vee needs right now. However, if she is still playing subpar, expect Elena to sweep up. I really can't wait to see the outcome of this match :bounce:

we can' go by that, Venus could be in the hospital getting ready to go under the knife and id bet that she'd say the same thing :lol:

i hope that she feels confident because confidence is KEY to Vee

I know Venus is struggling but I can't bet against her, she will win in 3.

Whatever the result I expect it to be a two set affair. I hope Lena can do this just to have a chance at a 2nd big title.

Lena will win, Venus in bad form

Venus was in bad form in Stanford and still beat her 6-0, 6-1. Lena :hug: good luck in your other two matches.

VIKA?

Hopefully Elena:)

I think both times Elena beat Venus was in three sets. In additon to not having beaten Venus since 2004 is a bad sign.

Probably Venus in 3. It seems hard for her to lose to Elena because Dementieva hasn't had belief she can beat Venus the last few times they've played.

dsanders06
Oct 26th, 2009, 08:22 PM
Venus is so low on confidence that probably all Dementieva has to do is defend moderately well and will draw a mountain of errors from Venus. With that said, Dementieva, knowing this, will most likely screw it up and end up making a mountain of UEs herself and lose.

Venus has been sucking up a storm since beating Lena in Stanford! Hopefully Venus finds her game and beats Dummy!

Elena in three or Venus in 2 easy sets... but losing to pavlyuchenkova twice is a bad sign for vENUS

hankqq
Oct 26th, 2009, 08:36 PM
hopefully Venus, but really we shouldn't expect anything from her :lol: She somehow managed to reach a new low this season by losing to pavlyuchenkova 2 times in a row in consecutive weeks :tape: :o so a loss to Dementieva wouldn't surprise me :lol: and we know Dementieva is going to try her absolute hardest to win, especially after the 1-sided loss in stanford.


then again, Venus can have periods of terrible play and then out of nowhere suddenly start kicking butt again :spit: hopefully she's in butt kicking mode this week :p :cool:

If Venus blows a Match point and it goes to a third set tiebreak, Elena has a chance.

Venus in 2. :rolleyes:

I actually think Venus must hate Lena. For some reason no matter how badly she's playing leading up to their matches, she always finds the time to lay a good classic Venus beatdown on her. :help:

She probably still remembers when Elena said she thinks Richard decides all the sister matches. :lol:

Anyway, i think Dementieva has a chance. Vee hasn't been playing that great lately.
But as always i go with Venus :hearts:.

oooh so torn - but hope these two can finish 1-2 in the group and make the SF :)
But im going for Elena - she deserves a YEC and can see her beating at least 2/3 of her opponents if she wins this

Dementieva in YEC :haha: her record is 3-13 since RR started .......... first match she won in 2003 against Chanda Rubin then in 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 didn't win a single set until last year :spit:

She should win but Elena isn't so bad that she can't beat a hot mess Venus.

for lena, anything more than a loss is being too wishful.
but i still wish she finally scores this 1 win after 5 years.
If she plays aggressively and goes for her shot
though unlikely.
