I thought her mother was her coach. She really don't have a terribly pretty game, but the "ugliest" shot she has is her serve. (Not as bad as Aniko's maybe) She is not tossing the ball high enough at all. It's purely an arm serve with little pace. I do not understand why she ranked at 9. She is very lucky the rest of her game is solid. I haven't seen the famous Dewonder, but I wouldn't be shocked if her serve is better.

ELENA DEMENTIEVA: Yes.

Q. And who is your coach?

ELENA DEMENTIEVA: Sergey Pashkov. He's in Moscow.

Q. Does he travel with you?

ELENA DEMENTIEVA: No. I'm travel with my mom always.

Q. If you need some help at a tournament, who do you go to?

ELENA DEMENTIEVA: To my mom.

Q. Did she play tennis, your mother?

ELENA DEMENTIEVA: No, she's not, but she's love tennis. That's why I'm here

It would appear that her mother has more say that her coach. (Wasn't she caught coaching at the Open this year?)
