Jan 8th, 2005, 07:14 AM
Congrats Elena!!!

Venus, alot of errors today, hope you're okay, stay positive for the AO!!

Wish it could have been a more entertaining match.

Jan 8th, 2005, 07:16 AM
That was an ass whooping alright

Go ED !!

Jan 8th, 2005, 07:16 AM
That was a typical non-rhythm-day for Venus :o . At least she beat two TOP 10 players. :)
Congrats Elena.

Jan 8th, 2005, 07:17 AM
AWESOME ELENA... i was rooting here with you on a shitty scoreboard and a shitty webcam the whole time... great job

venus did not play well at all today, but i kind of expected that to happen, its her first real big match in a while in a final and she must have been tired from kuznetsova

elena... you could not have started out the season in a better way and you really made my night

Jan 8th, 2005, 07:17 AM
Lena D :yeah::smooch:

Jan 8th, 2005, 07:17 AM
But I'm very disappointed cuz the webcam and the scoreboard is crap!

Jan 8th, 2005, 07:17 AM
its ok venus, i still love ya ;)

Jan 8th, 2005, 07:18 AM
. At least she beat two TOP 10 players. :)

Doesn't count . Exho's aren't official matches :)

Jan 8th, 2005, 07:20 AM
Doesn't count . Exho's aren't official matches :)
ok so this match doesnt count then! :D

Jan 8th, 2005, 07:21 AM
Good Job Elena!!!:yeah:

Jan 8th, 2005, 07:22 AM
Doesn't count . Exho's aren't official matches :)

But they DO count for the confidence ;)

Good job for Lena, I saw her playing against Justine on the Bel. TV and she was impressive. I hope both Elena and Venus have a good year.

Jan 8th, 2005, 07:30 AM
Oh my, that's pretty impressive... wow, that'll give you some confidence

Jan 8th, 2005, 07:31 AM
Doesn't count . Exho's aren't official matches :)
Aha. Are there Roboters on court or what do you think? :o :lol:

Jan 8th, 2005, 07:32 AM
Woohoo. Udachi Lena. :yeah:

Jan 8th, 2005, 07:39 AM
Rest up and take good care
of that leg Venus! :wavey:

Great exhibition for her

BTW, please let her
pull out of the doubles final! :cool:

Jan 8th, 2005, 07:40 AM
Good job Elena!

Better luck next time Venus!!!!!!

Jan 8th, 2005, 07:43 AM
YeaH!! WD Elena :hearts: :hearts:

Jan 8th, 2005, 07:46 AM
Well done Lena :clap2:
Hopefully she can take some good form to the AO :)

Jan 8th, 2005, 07:47 AM
Well Well Lena!! Well done ,sorry Venus but you did your best but i am afriad youve been DEMENTINATED!!..
I think this week as been good for both Venus and Elena ,Who ever said these matches did not count is talking crap ,yes they dontcount for rankings etc but they do for confidence and they are a good test ,I feel Venus had a good week here so Vee fans u have a lot to be happy about, we had glimpses of the real Vee back again the won who won many GS,s so its seems to me that Vee could be headed for a good year!!
As For Lena, wel lshe has really come out firing with a much improved serve and shes gonna be a real threat again this year it seems her returning is simply the best there is and shes the fittest and strongest out there ! So back to the Bridge of the SS Dementieva I go , got get over to Sydney PDQ!! Thank you Vee for a good match and i am sure you will be back!! Well done BOth GIrls!!

:bounce:Congrats Lena :D

Jan 8th, 2005, 07:53 AM
Congrats, Elena!! :D :yeah:
Beating Maria & Venus here!! Even though its an exhibition tournament, still a huge confidence boost for her to carry into the AO!!

Good performance by Venus as well!!! I can see that she treats this exhibition quite seriously to see where she is at. She gives a good fight in both matches against Vera & Svetlana!!! Maybe today is just not her day, but that's her style of play, just keep swinging; If its in, its a winner; If not, an unforce error!!!

I hope both of them will do well in the AO, to add more sparkles into the first Grand Slam of the season!!!!

Jan 8th, 2005, 08:00 AM
Way to go, Elena! :D

Jan 8th, 2005, 08:05 AM
it's not NBA but I love this game!

p.s. you need to watch faces of Sveta & Venus yesterday once again before to say "an exhibition tournament"
The true is Venus has nothing to add to her game. Sveta has not Venus.

Jan 8th, 2005, 08:36 AM
Great win for my lieutenant general: lena's biggest obstacle isn't any one single player, it's consistency. She can beat anyone, then turn around and lose to anyone. I love seeing her focused and her keeping her 'eye' on the prize- if she keeps her focus this season WATCH OUT!!!

Jan 8th, 2005, 08:41 AM
Great Job you did Lena, all your fans are proud of you :yeah: :woohoo: :worship:, and me is very confident about your tournaments in Sydney and the AO!!!!! :yeah: :yeah:

C'mon Lena and get the opposition Dementinated now :yeah:

Jan 8th, 2005, 09:13 AM
Lena D :yeah:

Jan 8th, 2005, 09:19 AM
I was hoping she would win, but if her leg was sore after playing all those sets (including doubles), she played it smsrt by not putting to much effort into this final, especially now that she will be seeded eight in the AO. I'd rather see her win that.

Jan 8th, 2005, 09:36 AM
Well done Lena!

Great start for the new season :)

Jan 8th, 2005, 09:41 AM
Elena :yeah: :)

Jan 8th, 2005, 09:44 AM
Congrats Elena! :D Anyone see the match?

Venus made errors, but how was Elena's serve? Attackable?

Glad Venus recuperated to win the doubles :)

I'm so happy for Elena, she has just been winning all her matches and as a fan, that is simply enough :) Now take the AO.

Jan 8th, 2005, 10:10 AM
great result Lena :D :) :banana:

it was entertaining enough for me ;)

Jan 8th, 2005, 10:15 AM

Jan 8th, 2005, 11:11 AM
great, Elena..keep it on to AO.

Jan 8th, 2005, 11:16 AM
wow... an impressive start of the year from Elena... usually she's very slow to start. it gives us, Lena's fans, a lot of hope.

stay injury free (it seems like this should replace good luck these day), Lena! :kiss:

Jan 8th, 2005, 11:20 AM
very impressive indeed!! :yeah: :yeah: :) :woohoo: :worship: congrats lena :aparty: :aparty: i'm very proud of ya!! good luck for sydney and oz open!! i'm sure you'll cause some damages there!! :bounce:

Jan 8th, 2005, 11:51 AM
I pick Elena D to be my fav to win AO.
She played great in single and double. Her serve is improved<I hope that she will continue doing so> :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:
Other players'd better WATCH OUT !!! :lol:

GO GET THE AO ELENA!!! :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

Jan 8th, 2005, 11:55 AM
Venus wasn't going full speed today. She is cleary a little tired, and Elena only had to play one singles match. The tourney didn't think that that would be unfair? Anyway, Venus didn't want to kill her leg today, so I'm glad that she didn't push it. Might as well save it for the Aus Open and kick some but down there. No reason to kill yourself if you're not 100% in an exhibition final.

Jan 8th, 2005, 12:49 PM
Vamos Alyona :kiss: :bowdown:

The crowd always support her :).

Jan 8th, 2005, 01:04 PM
Vamos Alyona

The crowd always support her
How about yesterday, whom did the crowd support more - Venus or Sveta?

Jan 8th, 2005, 01:27 PM
well done elena!

Jan 8th, 2005, 01:30 PM
its ok venus, i still love ya ;)
hell yeah :worship:

Jan 8th, 2005, 01:30 PM
Well done Lena :bounce:

hope my video will be up tmr :D

Jan 8th, 2005, 02:30 PM
Well done Lena. She might be the best in the sport right now.
She wasn't fit for the US Open final.
We'll find out more in Australia.

Jan 8th, 2005, 02:34 PM
Great job Elena!!!!!! :yeah: :yeah: :)

Jan 8th, 2005, 02:36 PM
wtg elena! maybe this year she's the full package... the real deal. no longer will she barely squeaze through draws and be a cinderella finalist, but maybe she'll kick some ass and get those titles!

elena, you rock!

well done venus, too. no shame in losing to a player like elena.

Jan 8th, 2005, 02:39 PM
Vee still looked amazing, and this week did great things for her!

nice match Elena!

Jan 8th, 2005, 02:47 PM
That was an ass whooping alright

Go ED !!
I would have to agree. This was a huge upset for Venus and will deliver a severe blow to her confidence.

Jan 8th, 2005, 02:50 PM
Doesn't count . Exho's aren't official matches :)
Yes, you really are a Williams hater aren't you?

Jan 8th, 2005, 03:03 PM
Well done Elena :D

Jan 8th, 2005, 03:35 PM
I would have to agree. This was a huge upset for Venus and will deliver a severe blow to her confidence.

Yes, it was such a huge blow that she the suppoedly injured Serena went on the court to play doubles and beat Svetlana and Aranxta 6-4, 6-0.:rolleyes:

Jan 8th, 2005, 04:24 PM
Great Exo for Venus :hearts: Good Luck to Venus and Lena at AO :yeah:

Jan 8th, 2005, 04:31 PM
Yes, it was such a huge blow that she the suppoedly injured Serena went on the court to play doubles and beat Svetlana and Aranxta 6-4, 6-0.:rolleyes:

Excuse me but isn't Aranxta retired?

Jan 8th, 2005, 04:31 PM
nice preparation for Elena going into AO. hope her thigh is completely healed!

Jan 8th, 2005, 05:51 PM
Congrats to Elena, but also Congrats to Venus for such a great showing. Continue on Venus with that comeback!

Jan 8th, 2005, 05:59 PM
Good Going Venus! Better Luck next time....rest that thigh.

We knew after two long matches two days in a row it was going to be hit or miss if Venus was going to come out tired or not. Elena beat her....Venus didn't have it today...No sweat.

but watch out I have a feeling 2005 is going to be great for Venus. :cool: :yeah: :yippee:

Jan 8th, 2005, 07:36 PM
Good job Elena! I smell your first slam coming up....

Jan 9th, 2005, 01:36 AM
Congrats on a Great week Elena!! :worship:

You are getting better & better!! :bounce: :bounce:

Jan 9th, 2005, 03:50 AM
welldone demented ;) :kiss:

Jan 9th, 2005, 04:06 AM
Too bad for Venus but she had to be worn out. Great tourney nonetheless. :yeah: :kiss:

Go kick ass in Oz! :fiery: ;)

Congrats Elena :worship:

Jan 9th, 2005, 04:33 AM
Congrats to Lena!! I can't wait for the Aus Open!!!!!

Jan 9th, 2005, 05:55 AM
Congrats LENA :yeah:

Jan 9th, 2005, 06:07 AM
Where was this??

Jan 9th, 2005, 06:14 AM
not really suprising.

Her movement seems to be hampered this tournament so far.

and after singles tennis matches going for a combined 3.5 hrs in 2 days we knew eventually something had to give.

Now she has 1 week or so to rest before making a all out assault at Melbourne park
