Patty, if you can't beat Lena D on green clay at a tournament where you've had some great success...then just retire.

I hope she beats JJ, like them both but serena has a better chance against dementieva because there is a greater chance that dementieva wont bring her A game than there is that JJ wont

A clay match between Dementieva and Schnyder with 20 games over in little more than 1h20m. Surreal. As are the BP conversion stats.

Well done the big golden one! that was simpler than I thought it would be, 2 straight sets and jobs a goodun.

Clean serve stats today also.

Sorry Miss P Schyner, but, well this is nothing new but YOU HAVE BEEN DEMENTINATED!!

Lenas really getting it together, I am not saying shes going on an unbeatable terror run anytime soon, but I really think shes earned her way back to the top ten and is winning a good deal of matches now too.

It is only me but it was very quick match, it is seems that the points were very short. However, a win over Patty is not just win, and with good day on serve it is even better feeling. I don't see her beating Jelena but SF is not bad at all...

If you have to face JJ Fad again tomorrow, please dispatch her with "Supersonic" speed! :lol:

But you'll have to remember how to play against Jelena to do it. She's totally psyched you out, it seems. :sad: Now is the time to fix that!

Elena can't be all that bad on clay-- I mean didn't she make a FO final a few yrs back?

wtaworld thinks since patty plays with spin and elena hits flat that patty should win on clay, basically. however, patty rarely beats dementieva on clay courts. elena is not a very good clay court player, but patty isn't good on anything this year.

haha Me too Max. It's really nice to see Elena consistent instead of her big results spread out too far. I hope her Grand Slam success improves. I hope Vera beats Jankovic because bad things always happen when Elena plays Jankovic. I think Elena would have an easier time beating Vera. We shall see though. :)

WTF? how is elena not good on clay? she has a fed cup title, gs final, tier one final, two titles, wins over the top 10, what else could you want, really? she's really good on clay.

I mostly find it funny when people act like a loss to Lena is some kind of career-ending disaster.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and opine that a player who has been ranked in the Top 15 for pretty much the last 7 years of so might actually be pretty good.

No, she's not the best player of the 00s. But's she's pretty damn good.

Great win. Dementieva has been in great form, as of late. Zvonareva is beatable in the SF.

Patty was pathetic, that is probably the worst I have ever seen her play while Elena was hitting winners galore and hitting the baseline so many times with shanked backhands. :rolleyes: Lots of bad line calls that obviously went Elena's way. Just a pathetic match from Patty, she looked so lethargic, even moreso than usual.

I, Patty, and everyone else saw the mark out and the umpire walked up and found a completely different mark and called the ball in.

LudwigDvorak

I agree with iPatty. MANY balls that looked out for Elena were not called out, whereas many close calls with Patty were called out. Elena was hitting great passing shots, winners, and angled backhands, she was very good, but aside from 2-5 to 4-5, Patty was pathetic. She just tried to outslug Elena, and she can't do that...almost every time Patty hit a drop shot, she'd win the point, plus Patty was far too predictable in her groundstrokes, and Elena, early on, couldn't even anticipate where Patty was going to go with her forehand.

I liked this match very much, but Patty could have done a lot better. Still, GREAT win for Lena...16th of the year. :)
