The sweetest revenge
Elena Dementieva's Grand Slam revenge continued as she upset her Wimbledon conqueror Maria Sharapova 7-5 6-2 in the semis of the JP Morgan Chase Open. Earlier in the week, she also avenged her Australian and French Open losses to Julia Schruff and Shahar Peer.

Sharapova, the top-seed of this event, came out as the heavy favorite coming in to this match. But Dementieva came out firing with all cylinders surprising Sharapova. She raced to a 5-1 lead in the first set but battled some late set jitters which allowed Sharapova to level at 5-5. But Dementieva wouldn't let her next chances slip away as she broke Sharapova to love to take the set 7-5. Aside from the last game, the second set was pretty much all about Elena. Sharapova saved 6 match points and on the seventh, she sent her forehand long on the baseline.

This win is the sweetest one this week and in quite a while. I'm pretty sure that this will give Elena lots of confidence coming in to the finals where she will face Jelena Jankovic. Jankovic defeated Serena Williams in the other semis today.

In H2H, Elena and Jelena are tied with a win each. Both previous meetings were in 2004 and in hard courts, and both matches ended with a 6-1 6-4 scoreline. Jankovic upset Dementieva at the 1st rd of the 2004 Australian Open while Elena won their last meeting at New Haven 2 years ago. Elena is looking for her second title this season and I fancy her chances of doing so. Another good day tomorrow would be truly fantastic.

Davai Elena!!!
