Now the really tough match is next. If she wins her quarterfinal, she re-enters the top ten. :unsure: :scared:

But, good demolition job to set up the tough match. Alona is terrible in singles this year, and Elena comprehensively exploited the weaknesses in her game right now. :yeah:

Wins over #12 and #23...numerically, this is a very good tournament for her already.

Elena played better in 2 service.:lol:

Much easier than expected. :) Hope Lena hasn't used her good match of the week.

Next match will be tough, Ana or Nicole. Now the tournament really starts!

Ok, I think we all just had us a good ol' Dementinatin'

Well Done Lena! A nice solid win, fair stats, clean serving and a real beat down to a pretty decent player, dont get to be top 25 by being a nobody, so its a good victory.

Sorry Alona, nice try, but same old, YOU HAVE BEEN DEMENTINATED!!

Like happy guy, I fear she may have used her good match too soon.

This is similar to the way she teased us at the AO. And in Paris. If she wins her quarter, I'll very happy. Actually, though, with this draw I'm glad she made the quarters.

Oh don't get me excited. :) She'll definitely re-enter the top ten at some point. She obviously just has to be more consistent. It was understandable why Elena left the Top 10 in 2007, but I think once she makes it to #8 then she'll stay in the top 10.

Still, you have to admit that Sharapova was just unstoppable at the AO. Henin was even bageled by Sharapova, so that's why I don't feel so bad about Elena's loss at the AO. I think she could have definitely gone deep in the AO if not for Sharapova. And I don't think she's used her good match of the week. If she had bageled Alona, I would have been concerned. haha ;)

Yeah... That's probably the reason why Alona already has got one Tier II title and another Tier II final in her pocket!!!

Still, well done Elena - hope you can advance to the semis in order to get back to the Top 10:worship:

Wise words, and a bangin' avi to boot.

Still, well done Elena - hope you can advance to the semis in order to get back to the Top 10:worship:

Luxembourg '06:
1R - def. #18 Pierce 63 63
2R - def. #25 Srebotnik 46 64 63
QF - def. #36 Dechy 57 64 60
SF - def. #73 Peschke 63 57 75
F - def. #14 Schiavone 63 62

Warsaw '07:
1R - def. #21 Srebotnik 63 46 61
2R - def. #43 Radwanska 06 64 63
QF - def. #61 Vakulenko 62 31 ret.
SF - def. #5 Kuznetsova 62 76(4)
F - l. to #1 Henin 61 63

Those were very good runs each, yes. Unfortunately she has one TI QF and two other TII QFs along with those two solid TII final day runs. In general, she does her best at the low events, so while what he said was tactless, it wasn't untrue.

Still, that doesn't mean a top 25 win isn't accepted with open arms. :yeah: Solid win, very very solid.

Her title was ages ago and she faced weak opposition. Fact is she rarely challenges anyone ranked higher than her. Her only notable victory was vs. Kuznetsova last year when Sveta played terribly. She also beat a slumping Mauresmo, a slumping Pierce, a slumping Molik, a 17yo Golovin. That's it. Those are her only top 20 wins in her career. Alona is perfect for Tier III and lower.

Well, I can only imagine Alona is only winning her matches when the opposition is slumping or playing terribly. Give her a break. I've seen all her matches in Warsaw (apart from that monday's final). She played really smart against Sveta and also recorded a great comeback victory over Radwanska. Bondarenko is really one tough cookie, so give some credit to Elena, who gave a great account of herself.
