Matthew Cronin wrote something nice about Elena today. You can find it here.

Do you know what I love about New York (and other than The Open, Broadway and that it's close to Connecticut, there's not much anymore), that Elena Dementieva is always a factor here. I love that because she puts her chin strap on week-in, week-out and competes hard. I love that she rarely gets hurt and, for the most part, plays hard. I love that despite the mockery that her second serve has been put under, that's she's a Top-5 player.

She and the Buffalo Sabre express (boyfriend Maxim Afinogenov) arrived in New York and promptly dismissed Laura Granville. She very comfortable in the Big Apple, having reached the ’00 semis and the ’04 finals.

"I love New York," she said. "New York reminds me of Moscow a little bit. I really love big cities. I like to feel this energy. I like city full of people. This is a very unique city. Even when you're driving to the court it's nice to be in the car and just look around, because every building is huge and it's unique."

What would be even more huge is for Dementieva to prove once and for all that she can win a Slam, serve be dammed. "Once you are in the final you're never satisfied with the final again. You're just looking for something more."
