Re: YEC RR: Svetus Williamsova def. Dementieva 6-3 6-2

Lena was abysmal. Sveta played well but each of the breaks of serve was down to horrendous play from Lena, gifting Kuz virtually every point. 3 dfs in one game. I suspect the return of Kim and now...

Re: Venus Williams Can Still Qualify For SF YEC (SCENARIO 7 ADDED)

One slight problem: scenario 7 results in Lena progressing to the semis because she won the head to head in this tournament. If both are 4-5 while Sveta is 3-5 then Lena qualifies.

Re: (The Demska Curse) Caroline Wozniacki Def Elena Dementieva 75 64

Abysmal display from Lena. Even when she started playing ok, she'd get upset at one poor shot and would talk herself into a spell of shocking unforced errors. Caro got the ball back in play and...

Re: IW R2:Petra Cetkovska upsets Elena Dementieva 7-6 2-6 6-1

So Lena recovers to win 6 games in a row to take the second set then falls to pieces in the third. She had control of the match and just gave it away without a fight; that's abysmal. I wonder if her...

Re: Dubai QF: Wimbledon Champion Venus def. Defending and OG Champ Elena 6-3 6-3

Venus played well. Lena double faulted twice when break point down, otherwise serve wasn't so bad but two costly double faults in two of the games where she was broken. And on her only break point...

Re: WWW Dubai QF: [4] Elena Dementieva vs. [6] Venus Williams?

Lena hasn't been playing that well recently; very disappointing against Amelie, more than enough chances to take the first set yet her forehand deserted her and her two displays in Dubai have been...

Re: Dubai 3R: Defending Champion and Olympic Gold Medalist ElenaDementieva def. AMG 6

Lena is going to have to serve a lot better if she's to threaten Venus. Not much penetration on first and those double faults seem to be more in evidence, 5 dfs in 19 2nd serves today, 5 in 28...

Re: Dubai R2: Elena Dementieva d. Sybille Bammer 75 62

Lena seemed to struggle with the (change of) conditions. But more penetration on the first serve so that was a good sign. She'll need to raise her game a lot if she is to retain her title.

Re: Paris F: Mauresmo d. Dementieva 76 26 64

Rubbish display from Lena. Far too many wild forehands and no penetration on first serve. Expected a lot more than that.

Re: WWW Paris F: Dementieva v Mauresmo

I suspect Lena will have too much power for Amelie. If Mauresmo serves well then that could make it a close match. So far this week Amelie has done exceptionally well at saving break points (17/22),...

Re: Carla Suarez Navarro: lucky player in 2 GS or future top 20 player?

Top 20 sure. Top 10 probably at some stage. Beyond that I doubt it. Her height puts her at a serious disadvantage. She has some nice looking shots but she doesn't look like another Justine to me. I...

Re: AO QF: S.Williams [2] def. S.Kuznetsova [8] 5-7 7-5 6-1

Sveta's attempt at serving out the match was wretched and even then she had a straightforward volley to get back to deuce but missed by miles. After that the wheels came off completely and Serena...

Re: AO QF: [4]Elena DEMENTIEVA (RUS) def. Carla SUAREZ NAVARRO (ESP) 6-2 6-2

Mixed display from Lena. Serving was horrible: first serve percentage and the double faults. The rest of her game was solid. Not afraid to come to the net, a couple of wild volleys but generally a...

Re: AO R4: Elena Dementieva easily into QF, 6:2, 6:2 over Cibulkova

The execution wasn't quite there from Lena but the strategy was more aggressive than we tend to see from her. Looks like Lena is under orders to attack the net more, even behind drop shots! Domi's...

Re: SEC RR: [5] Elena Dementieva def. [2] Dinara Safina 62 64

Solid display from Lena. Serve was ok and kept the unforced error count low. Dinara went for the big shot with mixed success; devastating when she hit her target especially during a brutal return...

Re: DOHA RR: 7- Venus Williams def 5- Elena Dementieva 6-4 4-6 6-3

Lena that was atrocious. Some of those misses were just unreal. Why the need to drop shot again and again when she just doesn't have the touch for it? Even an ordinary display would have been enough...

Re: Benesova def Robson 1-6 6-2 6-3

Laura didn't quite look ready for that level of opponent. Once Iveta woke up it was all rather too easy. Expected more penetration on Laura's first serve but her serving seemed slightly too safe. The...

Re: Jelena "You shall not bagel me" Jankovic pushes aside Dementieva 0:6 6:1 6:0

Lena that was hopeless!

Barely any cheap points from the serve in the last two sets and nearly all those were unreturned 2nd serves, contrast with JJ who produced some decent serves at key...

Re: Www Shrewsbury Qf Teenager Vs A Very Old Woman Laura Robson Vs Tzipi Obziler?

The title of this thread is pure genius. Agree with ChrisCHorse's view above. Tzipi's career is extraordinary in so many ways and certainly worthy of admiration.

Go Laura!

Re: USO SF: Jelena Jankovic def Elena Dementieva 6-4 6-4

Lena couldn't cope with the wind. Her serve lacked the penetration it has had in earlier rounds as she cut the pace and the second serve was back to the bad old days of wondering if she was going to...

You've mentioned her 2 losses in the semis and as you pointed out, once past the quarters (lost 10 times) her success rate is ridiculous. 8 wins to 5 failed to win (3 runners up, 2 semis).

Re: US Open QF: black widow JJ strikes again: paralyzes and kills rabbit Bammer 6-1 6

Sybille couldn't cope with the occasion. Ahead a break in the second set at 3-2, she hit the same routine backhand shot down the middle of the court over the baseline four times in a row. She went...

Re: USO 4R Elena Dementieva def. Na Li 6-4 6-1

Patchy match. Na Li started very slowly, missing the lines by some distance to go 4-0 down. Then she came alive, taking 3 games in a row with some impressive deep hitting. At least two shots right on...
