I'm waiting for the blog...

"Today I discovered something new: I can serve well.
In the end I did 2 DF's just to remember the regular days...
55 minutes? usually it takes me one set...perhaps I ate too much sushi or served like sumo wrestlers..."

Wow! :eek: well done the golden one!

Good try Vinci ,you had a good week of solid tennis ,you were enjoying riding a runaway train there for a while ,the only problem with runaways is ,sooner or later ,they will either derail or hit the buffers , you ran into the buffers in the shape of a big golden goddess , but there we go , it had a sort of doomed inevitablitiy about it really ,so , please stay back everyone and return to your homes ,theres nothing to see here , YOU HAVE BEEN DEMENTINATED!

easy win for Elena it's not like Roberta had a real chance ! ;)

That's encouraging. The fast surface has treated her slice serve well the past few years.

Orion
Feb 2nd, 2007, 09:47 AM
interesting Dementieva note: she's played in the YEC for the past 7 years. No-one else has done that.

Now, if only she'd win a match...

that's a relief. i was so worried that lena would underestimate her.

i don't remember a match where she's served this many aces and won, so that's a good sign. :yeah:

5 double faults and 11 aces in two rounds. :eek:

Great score Elena! :bigclap: :bigclap:

2 more steps to title defense... :angel:

Yeah I know, and Lena better not get intimidated by Sharapova because Lena is the best. I just want to shake Lena and tell her, "You're the better player, you're the veteran and you're faster than Sharapova's wobbly tall ass." I think she'll be very motivated if someone told Lena that. :)

agreed, but we have to worry about hingis first.

Lena had a great draw to the semis. I'm glad she did it quickly.

Lena D. never has any problems with net rushers (and it's usually the same with big servers), and I thought that Vinci, who isn't the fittest of players, should be running out of steam by now. Still I expected a slow start by Lena D. to allow for a more typical Vinci score such as 7-5, 6-0.

Congrats Elena for the win and for the excellent serve stats. Unbelievable, in this week there is a blonde, tall, Russian girl in Tokyo that is making a lot of double faults but her name is not Elena Dementieva. :lol:

Robertina, well done anyway! A QF in a Tier I is not bad.

Cool. Maybe she touched one of the sumo-wrestlers. I once heard that doing that brings you good luck. The tale goes that it gives you power and fortune. Let's see how the match against Martina goes. After that I may know if I should give meaning to that tale...
