Is Amelie really self destructing? Their stats are very similiar. Looks close if I go by them.

She's always had good groundies, its a matter of her playing a total game. I was impressed with her game as well, she's just so streaky.

streaky like Christina Aguilera's highlights?

She has no serves but watching her against Davenport was impressive.

ELENA :silly: You need this kind of play in every matches and go and fix that serve, everyone would be :scared: when they draw you.

apparently she can... no one is really taking advantage of her weak serve on a consistent basis...

Cariaoke
Jun 1st, 2004, 04:25 PM
they take advantage of Vee's weak second serve but can't take advantage of a weak FIRST serve? how retarded is that? :lol: :haha:

Vincent

apparently she can... no one is really taking advantage of her weak serve on a consistent basis...:lol: I have a question, I know Elena's second serve is weak, but look at the stats..Amelie's second serve speed is 132 km/h while Elena's 128 km/h, :cool: not that bad, although her placement is :tape: :lol:

it's actually pretty difficult...so much slice, and heavy conditions...it doesn't bounce that much :scared:

Cariaoke

but Elena has had some good wins under her belt the past year and two months... Davenport TWICE, Venus and almost Amelie... it wasn't windy and rainy on all those days. :)

You would think Elena's best surface would be clay since it would be harder for her opponents to really pound her second serve. Well she has won her biggest title on clay. Her groundies look magnificent today.

6-4, 5-2 :yeah:

SJW

ALLEZ Alyona

make me 1-3 instead of 0-4 :o

It would be sad for the woman's game if the grand slam champion had a bad serve. They struggle for respect as it is...However, if Elena D was to win it hopefully she'll do it having a good serving day. ;)

Elena d's serve is very effective...its giving amelie fits...its so inconsistent that she is barely putting them back in play...plus elena is manhandling amelie off the ground

best best better
Jun 1st, 2004, 04:38 PM
On the one hand I'm so pleased that Elena D has finally acted like she really WANTS and NEEDS success, rather than as if she didn't mind if it came her way (something which I felt she was guilty of in the past). It's so ironic that her serve has been so Godamn atrocious, AND that she really should have been beaten by Smashnova.


As for Amelie, I thought she couldn't play worse than she did against Serena in the QF last year. She hasn't, but she's not doing a whole lot better so far.

Surprisingly, her serve was nearly not a factor in the match. She was not serving great in terms of variety or pace, but her serve did not fall apart..

She can. If she serves like today (except for her game at 6/4 5-2), she probably will.

Geoffry
Jun 1st, 2004, 04:53 PM
I still can believe she's in the SF after I saw her match Friday against Smashnova. If Anna hadn't had cramps, I think Elena would have bowed out in no time.
BUT I have to admit she has proved herself after that off day, so congrats Elena!

Elena played awesome. I'm gona take it one match at a time, Paola is a clay specialist and this could be difficult for Elena, however I'm sure she'll talk strategy with Olga, plus she's beaten Suarez on clay before.

I hope she continues to progress! Udachi Elena :D

If Elena can continue at this Level, and No One challenges her Serve...She'll definately be a threat in the finals.
