Dementieva captures her first Slam in epic

Elena Dementieva has just became the Legend of the NTT as she won her first Grand Slam tournament in Melbourne. Just to say it was Elena's third tournament ever in her young career. Earlier this year Dementieva managed to get Brisbane crown and finished as runner-up in Sydney where she lost to Robson.

During the whole week Elena played like a true champion, without dropping a set before final. However unfair linesmen decisions and Karolina's netcords saw the russian being 0-1 down in her main match of the life. Dementieva took shower break and appeared on court more concentrated and more inspired. She built quick 4-0 lead in second set and choked less than usual. As a result the match went into third set.

Karolina Sprem, Croatian player, one of the true talanted players on Tour, was huge favourite for the last set as she was 2-0 and 5-4 up. But Championtieva hit winners in crucial moments which allowed her to get match point at 7-6 which she converted with beautiful forehand down the line. After that Elena screamed and fell on the ground in joy while Karolina attempted to shoot herself just to be stopped by umpire.

"I am so happy" said Dementieva during her speech. "You know it's so pleasant the whole stadium was cheering for me. I played pretty well today but all credit to Karolina by making this match exciting by her beautiful game. Special thanks to Mommy Vera, my boyfreind who is a hockey player if you know here what it means, and to my coach Yuran who made great job by working out game plans."

Dementieva will now break top 10 in next week's ranks.
