Win the title now. :tears: Finished it off what a spectacular DTL winner too.

Fran was very clearly tired from her battle with Kanepi though, she had great fight at the end.

She got so tight at the end:tape:
No matter how many times Lenas been in that situation, she still gets tight closing out a match:help:
But yay! Two top 10 wins back to back is a great result for her after the season she's had.
She's put herself at the forefront of contenders for the last spot in Doha.
But more importantly, win title 17!!!!!!:bounce:

Great 2nd set. Lena nearly had a repeat of her USO fail. Now win the title Lena!

Oct 1st, 2010, 09:15 AM
Almost choked it away. Lena :bounce: Take the title and grab the YEC spot! :)

Oct 1st, 2010, 09:15 AM
Very entertaining second set

Lena played great, so the win is well deserved.
Too bad for Fran though :sad: she made way too many easy errors.

Oct 1st, 2010, 09:16 AM
Glad to see Lena pull it through in 2 sets:banana:

Lena. :hearts: Win the title.

The only person I think about right now is Vera Dementieva, poor lady...

Elena in 2nd Tokyo final after 2006 :woohoo:

This match had some really nice rallies. :drool:

Elena should cut down her double faults while serving for the match though.

Good luck in the final!

Entertaining match

Never in doubt.

Nice win for Elena, some good points here and there but still too passive in general and serve was pretty bad today (not even 50% first serves in) and again she had big mental problems after 53* in 2nd set, I just hope that this win gives her some confidence back, she will have chances against Wozniacki, I just dont hope that it will be similar like last time they played :o

Oct 1st, 2010, 10:07 AM
Oh Lena! :) Well done! :) :woohoo: GL in final!

Oct 1st, 2010, 10:08 AM
With this win elena is back in the race for YEC. Now win the title and pass jankovic! :bounce:

one more :cheer:

Wozniacki generally has enjoyed some good success against Dementieva, even before her break-through. She defeated her multiple times in the early 2009 season. I think her game provides Elena with some trouble. That coupled with Wozniacki's confidence, and the fact that she will be vying for her 5th title this season probably gives her the edge. Elena winning is not out of the question if she plays as well as we know she can, but I think it'll be Caroline in two.

Lena :woohoo: Just 1 more.

Davai Lena!

Order restored.

This shows what could have been at the French if Elena were not injured.

I doubt it. Francesca at French open was amazing and better than today.
We will never know that.

^ at first I though that way too so I looked in their h2h found out that they have really tight h2h before french open Lena led their h2h 6-4b so we'd never know what would happen for sure

Oct 1st, 2010, 02:19 PM
If Lena had beaten Fran at RG, she would have been run over by a bus as she left the stadium after the match.

There are two things Lena is never meant to do. Bear my children and win slams. :bigcry:

Oct 1st, 2010, 02:21 PM
Go all the way, Lena :cheer:

Oct 1st, 2010, 02:27 PM
Take the title!!!!

Good job Elena :yeah:
Fran, please make yec or I will be very, VERY upset. :mad:

Oct 1st, 2010, 03:25 PM
