6-4 1-6...bathroom break for Elena...end of the match.

Must admit Elena got lucky to win this match.

Down 2-4, somehow fought back to win the first set 6-4
Second set, not sure what happened, seems Elena loosen up a bit.

Final set was really poor quality. Elena was able to go up 5-0 thanks to Vera's continuous UEs. Vera then won 2 games thanks to Elena's errors :lol:

Glad Elena won this one :)
Good luck against Maria/Dinara :fiery:

Elena was bad. She did nothing.

In the first set she took advantage of Vera's errors.
In the second set Vera stopped making errors and won easily.
Then Elena took a break before the third set.
Vera made three UEs on the first 3 points of the 3rd set, then she started losing her nerves (she broke a racket at 3-0, making large marks on the clay :lol:), as usual :rolleyes: and making UE after UE until 5-0. She managed to win 2 games thanks to Elena's passivity but it was too late.

Elena has no chance against Sharapova playing like she did today. Neither against Safina, unless Dinara lose nerves too :lol:

Seventh slam quarterfinal. Two finals, two semifinals, three quarterfinals now. It's been so long...five straight slams without a quarterfinal.

Great win. She levels her record against the top 20 (11-20) to 4-4 this year.

I am just elated. Fantastic win. Keep up the wins, even if you play bad. Her BH (DTL) was working really well in the third. :yeah:

Congrats to Lena but this match showed what a headcase Bepa is. As soon as she misses a few shots or an opponent starts fighting she turns into a :baby: + :silly: + :weirdo: + :bigcry:.
She played brilliantly in the second set!

Lena played well in the third but Bepa should have fought better, should have changed something in her game. She needs to get it together!

Some amazing points in this match but overall not that great quality.

Elena has the hardest road of any one in the Sweet 16, but she's taken the first step.

Are you talking about previous matches?

I'd say playing Safina or Azarenka is a more daunting task right now than Vera, just my opinion though.

Anyway, I'm so proud of Lena! Back to the top 5 just in time for Wimbledon :spit:
I hope I get to see Sharapova play her. I'll be rooting for Sharapova, but only just. If there was anyone for Maria to lose to in the draw, I'd want her to be Elena-- so long as she'd win the title!

Vera started the year well in terms of her attitude but she's been something like her old ways over the past few tournaments I've seen her in which is a shame as she is way too old and experienced to behave the way she does.

Pretty even first set, Zvonareva then played a very good second set and in the third she was too impatient, she started missing too much and just collapsed. :yeah:Well done to Elena, :banana: back in top 5

Not exactly.Vera selfdestructed and lost her momentum after Elena's bathroom break.Elena was solid in putting the ball in play in that 3rd set and Vera made error after error.Horrible quality in that final set.

Good win for Elena but it's really a shame that Vera isn't tougher mentally.She had the game to win in 2 today but she fucked it up (especially in the 3rd).She should have stay focused despite the interruption between 2nd and 3rd set.She got frustrated after the first 3 points of last set and was kinda back to her old self.A pity really.

ChriS.
Jun 2nd, 2008, 09:12 PM
Machine beats human. Elena is too cool and calculating to lose a match like this. First set pretty poor, Vera on fire in second. Lengthy costume change (she likes to look her best) let Vera's fire burn out and she started to miss in the third while Elena stepped up her level until the human self destructed.
