Sweet Sweet revenge! :devil:

Great result for Lena !

Bartoli served for the second set at *54 but Lena broke held and broke for the match.

Into the Qf's where she will face either Jankovic/Kirilenko.

Good luck lena!! :hearts:

Finally!! Elena hasn't been able to string 3 victories in a row since Istanbul, how nice this 3rd win comes at the expense of her french conqueror! :)

Way to go :)

Cant say I am overly surprised. I think the rain really helped Marion get as far as she did at Wimbledon. She played one crazy ass set against Henin though.

NIcely done Elena.

Against Janko it will be much needed.

Serve was Terrible though....just happens Marion's was worse!

miffedmax
Aug 2nd, 2007, 07:26 PM
Hopefully this will give her some confidence for the rest of the tournament at the US Open Series. A much-needed win against a Top 10 player.

Bartoli still leads 2-1 on the year, so I can't gloat very much.

Aug 2nd, 2007, 07:26 PM

Good win for Lena. But the real confidence-booster would be win over Jankovic which is inlikely.

Marion, get you together for USO!

Viktymise

Bad loss.

Im sorry, but Dementieva is not a scrub :o and its not like it was a drubbing

Beny
Aug 2nd, 2007, 07:29 PM
Well, Lena will have to step it up in the next round.
I don't want to see another 61,62 to jankovic. If she plays her normal game,it is likely to happen.
Lena has to play her best tomorrow.Hopefully,she'll have her best match of the year tomorrow.

Kirilenko will be tough definitely,too.

Nobody beats the Blonde Goddess three times on the spin - I hope the gateaux-munching Frenchwoman learnt her lesson today. :drool:

well done the Golden one, a great win over a top player indeed.

This is Lenas home turf, its where she often pulls good wins and Bartoli wasnt gonna make it 3 times in a row..

Sorry Bartoli, a good match and we all feared the worst but it wasnt to be, this time I have to inform you as the SS Demetievas CO that on this day, the 2nd of August in the year of our lord 2007, I hearby declare, YOU HAVE BEEN DEMENTINATED!

But great to see Elena D into the quarter final.

Elena's only had one top 20 victory this year, and it was a retirement. This is a big win for Elena.

Poova

Not really. Dementieva is not a bad loss. The only thing I'm pissed about is that Marion played one crappy match and couldn't even hold serve most of the time. :o

goldenlox
Aug 2nd, 2007, 07:41 PM
Players are going to take Bartoli seriously now. Especially Justine and Jelena.
So it will be harder for Marion to get top 20 wins.

OMG!! :eek: I checked the Eurosport scores and I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me. I officially want to see this match now. I expected Lena to lose, so maybe I'll keep doing that, but in my heart I always want her to win. She's going to have to take it match-by-match. :) :worship: I guess the surface does make a difference.

Hopefully this will give her some confidence for the rest of the tournament at the US Open Series. A much-needed win against a Top 10 player.

Bartoli still leads 2-1 on the year, so I can't gloat very much.

That sounds so weird to say, but the fact remains that Lena is no longer in the Top 10. Lena will be back there in time. :)

Aug 2nd, 2007, 08:07 PM
i did not see that coming. although bartoli was maybe still a little bit injured, i really thought that she would beat lena d due to the fact that she dominated her in the last meeting. anyway, way to go lena. please beat makiri or jelena now.

Thanx4nothin

Lena had only lost to Marion twice. First two meetins went in favor of Lena. Head-to-Head is now 3-2 for Lena.
