Dementieva starts with Granville today
Elena Dementieva will face American Laura Granville at the first round of the US Open today. Their match is second at the Armstrong Stadium.

Here's a little preview from the US Open website:

This is a brutal first round match for Granville, who has made some
progress as of late, but now must face a Russian who has been a threat at this
tournament every year since she stunned the world by reaching the semifinals as
a teenager back in 2000. This is the Slam that 2004 finalist Dementieva feels
she has the best chance of winning, and after she knocked off Maria Sharapova
and Jelena Jankovic in succession to win L.A., it's hard to disbelief her.

She's the most tireless player of the top 10, almost never getting
injured and willing to run down every ball. Her serve is still a mess, but in
order to be able to attack her swerving slice, you have to be able to read it,
and fewer players can.

Former NCAA champ Granville has admittedly underachieved and may not
have the killer instinct necessary to crack the top 20, but she has good enough
skills to be able to pull off a few big upsets in her career. She just has to
convince herself of that. But it's not going to happen here, as Dementieva is a
very good bet to make a strong sprint into the second week. Dementieva in two

I don't think Granville is a threat to Elena. But given the jitters Elena usually has during the first rounds of the Grand Slams, nothing is so sure. Elena has to start well today. Let's all wish her the best of luck.

Davai Elena!
