Elena Dementieva def. Maria Sharapova 2-6, 6-3, 6-2

Elena won't be able to hold serve, Maria will have a letdown in the 2nd set, Elena will pick it up in the third.

Queen Elena will throw a spanner in the works of the Group of Death and triumph in straight sets 6-3, 7-5

sharapova will win the first set easily then dementieva will probably have an injury time out even though she isnt injured then have a bathroom break and come back with sharapova's rhythm disrupted, then she'll go a break up but will serve like a million double faults, capitulate and lose. 6-1, 6-3 to sharapova and sharapova to win the whole thing.

You have to trust that masha will win this one - it's indoors, she's in form and brimming (or should be) with confidence, on a roll and she (almost) owns lena (I know she lost the last one, but all the aforementioned circumstances were not in place).

could lena have a harder 1st match :help: she needs to find her form quick, i really really hope she can do it so i say lena in 3 sets coming from a set down :D

i fear lena will be crushed :help:
i hope sharapova loses her concentration or something, because lena has a chance to make the semis if she does well in her group

I just remembered that lena was the last person to beat Sharapova if you discount that Chakvetadze match which was a walkover

Elena can win but she can't afford one of her usual slow-start.

something is telling me that ELENA DEMENTIEVA is going to ACTUALLY WIN A MATCH this year...so if she's gonna pull it off, this is the perfect START FOR HER!!!!! she can look to My girl Mary Pierce's DRAMATIC WIN OVER KIMMIE last year AT the YEC for inspiration...we all expected Kimmie to prevail.

Miss Maria Sharapova get off to a perfect start & attack that WEAK SERVE!!!
NO UEs PLEASE!!!!!!!!!

If Maria will take the first set The rest is History.
If she has the first set right now no one can beat her. The 1st set is always important for Maria in a match.

IF Maria will see this Tournament like an Grand Slam she will win it very impressive.

Really, guys, you rock :wavey:

I think Maria will win this one. It won't be an easy one thought.

Maria will have to serve well. It will be important for her to get free points off that serve. This will then give her the chance to attack Lena's serves and force the bps and eventual break everytime Lena's on serve. Maria should be careful not to let Lena back in once she (Maria) takes the lead.

I think Maria will take this in 2...hopefully.

id say it will be tough and who knows with elena not being in the best of form. but shes been off now for a while and well rested and most likely prepared and its the first match for both players so who knows. i really hope maria can take this match in 2 sets but it will be tough! go masha! but that having said if maria was to lose to anyone id like it to be elena cause after maria i like elena as she is such a nice girl! :)

I hope Masha will win in 2, but the result also depends on Lena. She may to play GREAT one day and ugly - another day. So, with her, you never know...
Agree, the serve and return will be the key tomorrow, for both players.
I love them both, but for tomorrow: Удачи, Маша! :kiss:

if it would go three, it would be a close fight with maria winning. chances are more likely it will only go two sets 6-3,6-4 with maria winning.

Maria owns Dementieva right now even when she lost last time against her she recovered an 1-5 deficit in the 1st set and then saved 7 matchpoints , i like her she doesn't gave up that's her big quality!

yeah... and in contrast apparently some Masha fans aren't that confident in their own player's abilities... even when she's THE fave... :ras:
Had the Linz final taught you nothing, comrades? :wavey:

Im always worried when Masha plays Elena because she is such an inigma you dont know what Elena will show uo and that can change half way through a match. Good luck Masha

Of course Maria is the overwhelming favourite. But you have to know the danger in Elena. She, if anyone, can upset a top player on any given day.

Still I think Maria will take this. One tough and one easier set.

Good point.

Actually, I honestly believe that Elena and Martina, the two players who are the biggest darkhorses, are the most dangerous. No one quite knows what to expect from them.

elena def pova 6-7, 7-6, 7-6

Now, that's something I'd like to see: Elena defeats Masha by winning two tie-breakers.

I'm not saying that Masha can't lose. But there is NO WAY she will lose TWO breakers to Dementieva, given the way they each serve. :)
