Dementieva meets Perry in 4R action
Elena Dementieva will try to score her career-best performance at Wimbledon this year after failing to progress past the fourth round in 2002, 2003 and 2005. Shenay Perry is on her way to her first quarterfinal at Wimbledon.

This could be Elena's best chance at reaching the quarterfinals as she was stopped bu former Grand Slam champions in her previous fourth round defeats: Justine Henin-Hardenne, Serena Williams and Anastasia Myskina. She was a point short last year of making the quarterfinals as she held match points in the second set against Myskina. I'm sure that the memories of this match was very painful for Elena so I hope that this motivates her rather than haunt her in her match against Shenay Perry tonight.

Shenay Perry is currently ranked 62 but her ranking doesn't say much about how well she's been doing lately. Despite the disparity of their rankings, Shenay Perry is a very dangerous player and her serve could bother Elena. Elena's return game should be on today if she wants to make sure of a quarterfinal slot.

The key to this match is Elena's return game. This could be an easy match if Elena could serve very well throughout the whole match. But if not, Elena should press Perry and be more aggressive. I noticed that Elena is very hesitant upon coming to the net in her previous matched and I think that she has to come to the net more often to shorten the points. Dementieva should do her best to finish this match as quick as she can so she can have more rest if she is to play the quarterfinals her at Wimbledon where she can face Maria Sharapova.

Davai Elena!


After their respective fourth round matches, Elena Dementieva and Flavia Pennetta will take on the new team of Michaella Krajicek and Sania Mirza in the 2nd round of doubles action tonight. Dementieva and Pennetta should win this one quite easily and with less drama as they are clearly the more experienced and more talented team. Krajicek is a good volleyer but the same cannot be said for Sania Mirza. So given their talent and experience, Elena and Flavia should win this in straight sets.

Flavia will face Maria Sharapova in the fourth round today and I really hope that she gives challenge to Sharapova and beat her if she can. It's time that Flavia makes a breakthrough in a Grand Slam. If she does it and Elena also wins in her match today, they will meet for the first in their career in what could be a quarterfinal at Wimbledon.

Davai Elena! Vamos Flavia!
