Does Riske remind anyone of Dementieva?

And where has she been, she has some serious game.

Re: Does Riske remind anyone of Dementieva?

She reminds me more of a Amy Frazier with the way she hits the ball, very flat.

Can't see the comparison with Dementieva, Elena was a much better mover and far more consistent, and Riske has a better serve and is much more willing to come to the net.

Re: Does Riske remind anyone of Dementieva?

I know Riske personally. Not that well, but she lives 20 minute away and is a year younger than me, I've seen her play and talked to her many, many times over the past 8-9 years. Never thought I'd be seeing her on Ct. 1 at Wimbledon.

Re: Does Riske remind anyone of Dementieva?

She has come to the net more times in this match than dementieva did in her entire career.

I like her game, but don't want her to win

Re: Does Riske remind anyone of Dementieva?

I think this is just another case of one of those classic matches at the beginning of a slam.
A young newcomer who has nothing to lose playing against a top player.

I feel like we see it once at a slam or once every other slam.

Re: Does Riske remind anyone of Dementieva?

Whatever happens here, it speaks volumes about her character to recover like this after losing the first set 6-0, especially given the fact that this is the biggest match of her career by a mile.

She has potential on grass though, remember her SF run at Birmingham last year?

I meant looks wise not game wise, their features are very similar.

But she volleys really well so far, which is more than what you can say for some of the newcomers.

Re: Does Riske remind anyone of Dementieva?

Riske is no slouch, especially on grass. She has beaten Wickmayer on it and taken a set off Sharapova on it. She won 3 75K's in Europe last fall back to back to back. She isnt a nobody and has showed she has game numerous times previously.

Definitely.

She doesn't remind me of Dementieva, though.
