Classic Elena. I think that break in the middle of the year has served her well.

Lena was too good out there :( Vera lead 5*-3 and didn't hold serve again.

Hope to see her win the title.

Lena played very well, Bepa buggered up the first set, have to hold the odd serve and less DFs when playing a very good opponent to have a chance.

Lena is just a bad matchup for Vera - she is more athletic, more consistent and generally has more power in her shots. NID

Good match from Elena, she is playing well for some time (just not winning...), Mommy Vera was happy in the end, that was nice to see after the previous heartbreaking matches...

BTW, Bepa is kissing now every player in the end of the match? Elena was surprise when she saw Bepa kissing her...

Vera is just a worse Lena's version. Now prove that you are better than Flukesca.

I was expecting quite a cold handshake but it was good to see a (sorta) warm reception.

She does, sometimes. Just not consistently enough. :sobbing:

Anyway, again, a nice score to wake up to.

Elena just does not lose repeatedly to Russian players.:bounce:
(unless they're Myskina, Sharapova, Petrova, Safina or Kuznetsova that is:sad:)

Vera had a lot of problems holding her serve after being up 42.
That was a key to this match

Results that seem so obvious but glad that its happening. Zvonareva should never be reaching slamfinals, pretty obvious.

Good fight in first set from 35 to 75, played more aggressive from that point , which is important for her game, in 2nd set she almost choked it away, she still isnt as confident as she should be was lucky that Vera gave her the break in the end with a few UEs in a row...hopefully she can beat Schiavone now. who should have lost today already anyway but Elena needs to stay aggressive, she will lose if she plays too passive again!

Even though I find Vera very sympathetic and respect her for her GS results this year, this is a very fair result because Elena simply is a much better player overall.

This 2010 has been a very strange year. The better players were either injured or not in form and thus players like Vera, Fransexa, Stosur stepped up and took advantage of the situation. Props to them.

But an in-form Elena would have beaten Clijsters in the US final this year IMO.

While it's all good to be congratulating Lena on her good play and win, all this much better player, order restored, Bepa only wins matches because the opponent breaks both legs sort of crap does start to be a bit pissing off. Bepa was on top till serving at 5 3, and then did go off , give a fair few DFs, and Lena upped her game and was the better player from then on.
She deserves her ranking place as much as any other bugger,but I suppose all this sniping at her means she is doing well if nothing else.

That's almost endearing. Supporting Dementieva outside the GS.
