Warsaw SF: Can Elena beat Kim twice in a row?
Elena Dementieva defeated Agnieszka Radwanska in a very dramatic but effective manner 5-7 6-3 6-1. Now that she's through the semifinals, the question now is: can she beat Kim twice in a row?

Before I answer that question, let's see what happened to the QF match earlier. Elena committed 8 DFs (which is about average) but had 42 winners during the entire match. In the first set, Elena did not play bad at all. Radwanska played intelligently and she was hitting the balls really clean. But after that set, it seemed that she can't play that consistently when she's a little tired. Dementieva, being as she is, can get back a lot of balls most players can't and she did that well tonight. It was a good game for Elena and probably, it's good that she had to struggle today before she faces Kim in the semis tomorrow. Anyway, kudos to Radwanska. She did her country very proud and the WTA has truly found a new upcoming player.

Let's now go back to the question I raised earlier. Can Elena beat Kim tomorrow? Absolutely yes. But all depends on which Elena and Kim shows up tomorrow. If the ideal Elena and Kim plays on the court tomorrow, then we'll all be seeing a great match tomorrow. Kim is a great player and a good champion at that. Elena has to play her shots consistently and confidently. The way she played Kim in the FedCup two weeks ago, she has to do the same tomorrow. Kim is no pushover, we all know that. But if Lena serves well, she will absolutely win this one. It's safe to say that this match is up for grabs and tomorrow's match will be dramatic. Whoever is more aggressive will win this one.
