I'll only be happy if Hingis loses all of hers.

Lena gets to the YEC every year, but she never gets the kinds of wins she sometimes gets at the US Open.

Seriously Lena, get your shit together for next year.

Why does she even show up?Because she wants to play ball, even if it means getting her arse kicked. ;)

It is the ONLY thing that let's her down always, everything else is world class - ITS TRAGIC :crying2: :sobbing:Her weak serve is as much a psychological problem as it is a technical problem; therefore, her head lets her down in matches a lot.

Why does she even show up?

making the finals is a Privilege :)

its not like any other tourn where you simply tick the entry box and you can play :rolleyes: :rolleyes:


if only Mattress Mac had bought these finals and they played it outside, would Lena be more effective.

No, it's not. It would be a tragedy if it were out of her control. It isn't. She doesn't deserve to do better until she improves. Which, realistically, she's not going to at this point.

Nov 8th, 2006, 07:08 PM
Poor Elena

She is a much better player than this.

AnnaK_4ever
Nov 8th, 2006, 07:08 PM
And furthermore. Lena lost in straights to 8 different players!

Wayn77

Her weak serve is as much a psychological problem as it is a technical problem; therefore, her head lets her down in matches a lot.

I totally agree. But a player with such a continually hopeless serve can still reach major finals and make top 5 in the world - how good is the rest of her game?

MisterMan
Nov 8th, 2006, 07:08 PM
wow, and to a different player every time ! That's versatility !!

Ah yes, just making it there's the point. :tape: It's great that she makes it there for like what, 7 years in a row? It's just dissapointing that she cant even muster up enough game to win a set in the last 8 matches, because even with her shit serve she should be able to.

franny
Nov 8th, 2006, 07:11 PM
The top players are just on a whole other level. I mean, in a way, it's pretty impressive that she can even have this streak. She hasn't even won a set. But at least she's trying, so that's something.

~Eclipsed~
Nov 8th, 2006, 07:14 PM
i say this every year, but i hope she doesn't qualify next year.

:smash: :help: :smash:

The comentator on German Eurosport said that she reached the semis in 2001 defeating players like Davenport!

But since I'm supporting her (mid 2002) I can't remember that she has played a decent match at the Championships. :o

She is usually playing great tennis at the US Open and after qualifying for the Championships in September or October she is hardly finding back to her form and then literally sucks at the Year-End Championships.:(

Maybe they should move the Masters to Moscow next year. :hehehe:

faboozadoo15
Nov 8th, 2006, 07:21 PM
i guess this format is terrible for her. she gets no time to get her game adjusted, and she isn't a dominant player. she can't play above the rim. her only hope to win any tournament is to play her game against players ranked lower than her and then have fabulous matches against maybe 2 top players who aren't necessarily at their best. she can't do 3... and in this format you need to do 4/5 top quality matches.

vutt
Nov 8th, 2006, 07:29 PM
it just confirms that over past years she's the weakest player among top 8

WIMBLY2004
Nov 8th, 2006, 07:57 PM
The betting odds of 25/1 for Dementieva look quite reasonable now.

MisterMan
Nov 8th, 2006, 08:00 PM
Being the worst of the Top 8 still shows unbelievable talent.

Nov 8th, 2006, 08:25 PM
given her record at the slams and other big events her record at YER really is pitiful, especially as she has played every year this decade. i guess it probably is the format. lucky for her the wta arent doing an atp style round robin trial next year

spencercarlos
Nov 8th, 2006, 08:34 PM
8th consecutive straight sets loss :eek:

Nov 8th, 2006, 09:18 PM
Elena is retard of some kind. :retard:, period. She should have freed herself from her mother long ago. But she stays marooned in time, her development as a player froze like shit of a mammoth. Mommy Vera is the root of all Lena's woes.

mike/topgun
Nov 8th, 2006, 09:24 PM
Lena - the stat is hideus. I can remember her run in 2000, it was terrific.
The last 3 year were:o tho.

kundalini
Nov 8th, 2006, 09:27 PM
Well hopefully she finally decides to make the changes that everyone knows she needs to make if she is to be competitive at the highest level. She is so close, and yet so far away. It's not just the serve, it's freezing on key points that was the killer today; how many unnecessary unforced errors on break point. It wasn't even as though she was going for a winner just a careless shot usually long.

At least Svetlana was trying to win the points. Lena spent the first set hoping that Kuz would miss and she did rather too often.

So bring in a top coach, get the serve sorted out - not some ridiculous compromise, and look to take the initiative in the points more often. Then she might have a decent chance of winning a Slam.

mike/topgun
Nov 8th, 2006, 09:31 PM
and Lena played much, much better when coached by Morozova!!!!!!!

soccerjock
Nov 8th, 2006, 09:46 PM
How come Elena sucks so much at YEC?
She should maybe miss it next year and get ready for Australian Open, cos she is never ready to play their either!

Nov 8th, 2006, 10:11 PM
geez poor lena, suffer another loss at the YEC once again :sad: she's got 2 step it up these type of players like maria & sveta on a consistent basis rather than just beat them once in a while in big events like the YEC. she's got 2 believe in herself more & has 2 trust herself 100% 2 win these type of matches.

her serve she needs 2 work on where she can win some cheap pts becasue some of her matches just go way 2 long plus her mental capability she needs 2 develop in order 2 stick with the top players in games. her groundies r very good but it's just the serve & the mental ability that is stopping her from being a consistent top 5 player & obviously winning a match at the YEC.

lena, 2007 is your year 2 improve. plz don't waste it.

Havok
Nov 8th, 2006, 10:26 PM
Dementieva usualy sucks vs top players (sometimes gets those really nice wins, but for the majority she goes down quickly) and now she's stuck playing the top 8 straight off the bat and her opponents are fresh and not tired. Elena has always sucked at the YEC. She only had one decent run way back in 2000 I believe and that was it no shock.

manu32
Nov 8th, 2006, 10:30 PM

Sadly, I think that will only become nine if Kim plays well and Elena STILL serves like this... :o :help:

lecciones
Nov 9th, 2006, 12:13 AM
She is just nervous im sure. Someone should give her more morale support I'm sure she deserves to win at least on set!

goldenlox
Nov 9th, 2006, 12:23 AM
These are the best players, and usually Lena comes in tired, from trying to get enough points to get in.
I still think her best chance to win a major is RG, even though she was very close at the US Open.

Veritas
Nov 9th, 2006, 01:01 AM
At least she won 8 games instead of losing 5 of them for the 5th time in a row :rolleyes:

I guess it's power to her she's made it to the YEC for the 7th time in a row, but it's amazing how she hasn't even won a set since...2003! :help:

Her serve shouldn't be an excuse. If it was, she wouldn't have made it to Madrid in the first place. And I don't buy the "it's all in the head" one as well because Lena's fought through matches when she was down by a mile.

She always gets a breadstick from Sharapova.

She always loses in straight sets to the Belgians.

She loses more to her fellow Russians than the other way around.

Where's the "fighter" spirit she's so well known for? I'm not saying she's a horrible talent, but if she goes through the entire year gathering the YEC points, then she's expected to perform. There's no point in turning up when she could've done something productive like take an extended break or go through more training, etc.

Elena has actually lost 12 of her last 13 matches at the YEC in straights.

blumaroo
Nov 9th, 2006, 07:47 AM
There's a reason why her h2h is negative against most top players. Her game is simply not consistent and/or good enough for the rest. It's not just the serve. Even her groundies can get very predictable. Powerhitters who can hit just as hard or harder can get the better of her and push her behind the baseline. Plus she makes many errors herself as well. Still, it is quite pathetic that she can't even win a set. Even Schnyder would have done better.

parn2257
Nov 9th, 2006, 08:36 AM
well I'm happy that she made it to this point every year but still this is very sad elena got so many chance and maybe more than anyone else too. I just hope that elena can in the loss aginst kim.

not that I don't like kim....I love kim but elena seem to need it more.

Nov 11th, 2006, 09:31 AM
She won 2 matches in her 1st participation and after that she only won a match in 6 participations in YEC.
