USO 4R: Unseeded Rezai stands in Dementieva's way
Elena Dementieva[4] will be facing unseeded French teen Aravene Rezai. Rezai steam rolled Maria Kirilenko in the previous round 6-3 6-1.

Most people probably haven't heard anything about Rezai and are surprised that she's in the fourth round of the US Open. Not me. Rezai had been improving tremendously the entire year and making big strides in her career. She reached the third round of the French Open in June where she upset Ai Sugiyama en route, then lost to Vaidisova in three sets. ANd in her way to the fourth round, she also upset 16th seed Anna Lena Groenefeld and Lucie Safarova. Rezai is currently ranked 96.

Dementieva and Rezai has never faced each other before. Elena is also probable surprised that she is not meeting a seeded player in the fourth round. Rezai is probable surprised with herself too. I haven't seen her in action ever so I can't really make any judgement about her game.

On paper, it looks like Dementieva will win this match easily. But we don't want to underestimate Rezai. She might be lower-ranked but getting to the fourth round of the Open is no small feat. The key here will be whether Dementieva would be able to continue serving well. If she does, Rezai would have no chance. Her return game has been good the entire tournament so I hope that continues for Elena as well.

Davai Elena!
