Luxembourg 2R: Dementieva vs Stosur
Top seed Elena Dementieva will have a tough task of getting to the quarterfinals of the Fortis Championships as she faces reigning Doubles No. 1 Samantha Stosur on the second round. Samantha Stosur has been making big strides in her singles career in the past few months and is now No. 30 in the world rankings. This match will be Dementieva's debut match at Luxembourg.

The only previous meeting between these 2 girls was at Los Angeles last year where Dementieva triumphed over Stosur 6-4 6-3. But a year has passed and both girls are playing better this year. Stosur has a good serve which could make life more difficult for Dementieva. Dementieva has to show up well-prepared in their match or she might be upset by Stosur.

I'm actually anxious to see how this match will be like. Elena is coming off from her quarterfinal run at the US Open where she was upset by Jelena Jankovic. Clearly, that loss was very painful to Elena so I want to see how that has affected her. She's been more consistent this year, but that loss against Jankovic clearly affected her if you base it on her post-match conference.

Anyway, I hope that that loss will motivate her more and take her to realize that she needs to step up another level. I know she can do it.

Davai Elena!

Elena Dementieva and Michaella Krajicek had no problem of dispatching the Bondarenko sisters 6-3 6-1 in the 1st round of Doubles. They will probably face the 4th seeded duo of Groenefeld/Huber in the quarterfinals.

Davai Elena and Michaella!
