Elena back in action at Luxembourg
After 2 weeks of rest, Elena Dementieva goes back on court as the top seed of the Fortis Championships in Luxembourg. The Fortis Championships is a Tier 2 indoor hardcourt tennis tournament. Nadia Petrova, Patty Schnyder and Dinara Safina join Dementieva as top seeds of the tournament, each of them receiving a first round bye.

This is Elena's debut at the Fortis Championships and her opening match will be either against Anne Kremer or Samantha Stosur. If Elena wins this match, she will have a QF showdown against either Venus Williams or Ana Ivanovic. Williams is coming off from a wrist injury while Ivanovic suffered an opening round loss in Bali two weeks ago. It looks like it'll be a tough QF for Elena, but if she gets through, Schnyder is probably waiting for her in the semis. But Schnyder is not really a great indoor player so we might see Francesca Schiavone or Michaella Krajicek instead of Schnyder in the semis against Elena. The bottom half of the draw contains Safina, Pierce, Golovin, and second-seed Nadia Petrova.

This is the second-time this year that Elena has been the top seed of the tournament. The first one was at s'Hertogenbosch where she reached the semis. I hope she lives up to her seeding and get her third title of the year and solidify her place in the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour Race to the Championships here in Luxembourg.

Davail Elena!

Doubles news

When Flavia Pennetta withdrew from this tournament, I thought Elena won't play doubles in this tournament. Imagine my surprise when I saw her name in the doubles draw. She's partnering Michaella Krajicek in this tournament. In the first round, they will face the Bondarenko sisters. Let's see how their team will hold up.

Davai Elena and Michaella!
