Absolutely wonderful Elena! She lost only 8 points on serve in the match.

Dulko had 10 double faults.

Lena won mixed at the AO, flew to Tokyo, got off the plane and won a doubles match, then the next day, won this match. She's working her way into good form now.

Lena :) A win! 1st time since Moscow. Why do you only play Top 30 style tennis on fast courts nowadays???

I don't know how'll do against Demented. She played well against her till the ankle problem at Wimby.

I'm guessing a loss.

Dulko's game is SO wrong for these courts, while Elena's is SO right.

Way to go Lena L. I've always liked and admired her. I hope she makes ome qtrs and semis on the single's tour this year.

Did anyone really think that Gisela would have done well on an extremely fast court in Tokyo?

It really seems stupid.
She should have stayed in Australia and joined Gonzo in Chile so she can get practice for Bogota and Acapulco (which she should be playing if she's not on the entry lists yet).
