What about a poll? Quarterfinal.

I hate to say it, but putting together an interpolation of her recent results, its gonna be first round, F-SF-QF-3R-1R :tape:

Of course, I hope this is a massive jinx :angel:

Thats a nice picture SamSam :hearts:

She's very consistent this year I don't see her losing before 4th round

QF or even SF is possible

I think she'll make the QF. I have a feeling she'll get an unforgiving draw.

QF and with luck maybe SF.

I think she should at least make it to the QF. But it`ll depend of her draw, maybe Mauresmo or Davenport (if she´s fit) could beat her before that. Or Radwanska in a 4th round...

I say 4thRound or QF. I voted QF though.

She may not win it but I consider her one of the big favorites this year and it has nothing to do with me being a fan of hers.

Semi-final.
Elena always tends to do really well at the US Open.

DragonFlame
Jul 15th, 2008, 04:08 PM
To be honest, anything worse then a quarter is unacceptable. Quarterfinal would be in the okay/slight dissapointing area. Semi would be a good result, and anything beyond semi would be a great result for elena. Her best slam has been the usopen and she should perform the best there. Especially after last years failure:o I expect her to have good results in the warm-up tournaments btw. of course i hope she does well at the olympics. elena winning olympic gold would be perfect.

Predictions and Elena do not belong in the same sentence. She could just as easily win the title as lose in the first round. You just never know with her.

I will make one prediction. I bet she keeps her mouth shut about "family decisions" at the US Open.

More like Quatertieva. Had to say, depends on the draw, we might have anthoer one like last year's ridiculous draw.

The organizers should bunch the Russians on one side and let them kill each other like they did at the French Open....and throw in Aga on their side of the draw.
Dementieva winning a slam is like saying Conchita Martinez and Patty are bosom buddies.

Sorana_Cirstea
Jul 16th, 2008, 03:56 PM
People should seriously grow up and get off of Elena's back.

I think QF, or SF. Maybe 4R.

I don't care what she says about Venus or Serena. I'm still a fan of hers, and you learn to look past those things. It's time other people do too. Because I guarantee no matter what you say, Elena isn't reading it, and Elena don't care.

THank you!! I just want Elena to go the distance for once. She somehow won the Kremlin Cup which she always dreamed of doing, so why not win a Grand Slam finally. :)

Elena can make the final again but might lose a 3 setter to Nadia, 06 75 64, for Nadia's first major

I've had a good feeling about the USO all year. I have to agree with DragonFlame, anything below a semifinal would be disappointing, unless she draws Sharapova in the quarterfinals. She should be able to squeak a three-set win over Radwanska in the fourth round if she draws her there. Something tells me she'll get exactly those two :o :o :o but we'll see.

Elena FTW. :shrug:

Julian
Jul 16th, 2008, 04:35 PM
if she plays like she did in Kremlin Cup...
champion!
but whenever she gets in the late stages of a GS she kind of...chokes! she needs that fearless attitude she had in the QF-SF rounds when she played them in 2004.
now the final is a different story!

kinseh
Jul 16th, 2008, 04:49 PM
And of course a pic of her and mummy Vera. ;)

I think Elena has a good chance at USO. I expect at least QF. SF would be great, and F would be just fantastic. :D

Lena and Mommy Vera. :hearts: Adorable.

I think she'll make the quarters, if she draws Sharapova, possibly semis. Aside from the AO, Sharapova hasn't made the quarterfinals of a slam in a year. Just my opinion. :shrug:

How can you possibly say until you see how the draw works out?

With her mental lapses she will lose to anybody like she did last year...

After the Olympic gold medal, Elena will win the USO '08.

It always also depends a bit on the draw. But I guess sthg. around QF. SF is also possible.

im a believer in patterns. dementieva's grand slam pattern this year goes: R4, 1/4, 1/2.....
which means she'll reach final, losing to kuznetsova (keeping the 'finalist from the previous year' pattern going ;)) I WISH!!! :lol: :sad:

I think a Semifinal is pretty realistic considering all of the seeds. She will be seeded 5 and thus has the chance to meet either Ana, Jelena, Kuzzy, or Serena in a Quarter. If she keeps up her level of play, I would not be surprised to see her beat one of these four girls.

Oh, what the hell, I am going to predict, "champion".
The USO is obviously the best chance she has for a slam, and she is confident and playing beautifully, the best, most consistent tennis of anyone at the moment...as long as she keeps her head together...and she deserves it.

Lovely pictures. These are why I admire and like Elena so much. Plus when I saw her at Eastbourne 2 years ago shw was gorgeous with the fans - allowing little kids to have their pic taken with her after she had just [B]lost [B] to the ghastly Bartoli!

I hope Elena wins the US Open.

That happened three times in four tries. That's hardly a pattern especially when the last time it happened was over three years ago in Australia where she's never even past the fourth round (which might make it her worst slam).
