Dementieva faces Srebotnik again in Zurich
This week, Elena Dementieva is playing the Zurich Open at Zurich, Switzerland. The Zurich Open is the last Tier 1 tournament this season and will also be Dementieva's last tournament prior to the Madrid Masters.

Dementieva is seeded fourth in this tournament, following Amelie Mauresmo, Maria Sharapova and Svetlana Kuznetsova, and had a first round bye. Waiting for her in the second round is Slovenian Katarina Srebotnik. This is the second time in three weeks that the 2 girls will face each other and third time this year too. Just a couple of weeks ago, Elena Dementieva battled cramps and poor serving to get past Srebotnik at the 2nd round of the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart, Germany. Dementieva won all her previous meetings against Srebotnik (6-0). But notably, their last three matches went into three sets and the last 2 was won 7-5 in the third.

People are saying that Srebotnik is due a win against Elena. Of course I hope not but I think not as well. Elena is probably tired as this is the fourth straight week that she's playing but knowing that a good result here will qualify her for Madrid is motivation enough for her to do well in Zurich. So, I'm expecting another difficult match for Elena tomorrow. But when push comes down to shove, I believe Elena will win once again. If she's playing really well this week, a title on Sunday won't be a bad birthday gift for me. ;)

Davai Elena!!!
