|From the New York Post:
Russian tennis star Elena Dementieva will be hard to miss on the Upper West
Side, now that she's buying a Riverside Drive condo.
The willowy blonde - currently ranked sixth in the world - is one of the
Russian hotties dominating the women's tennis circuit. Sources say she's paid
$2.6 million for a high-floor two-bedroom, 31/2-bath unit in the Rushmore
building, overlooking the Hudson River at 64th Street.
Dementieva and Maria Sharapova were on Centre Court at Wimbledon earlier this

ice queen Sharapova turned her back on the antics, Dementieva at least smiled at
So Lena bought an apartment in New York huh? Hmmm... I wonder what that means. It could probably be her birthday gift for herself. Or maybe she's moving closer to her boyfriend Maxim Afinogenov of the NHL's Buffalo Sabers.
Anyway, the good thing if she really moves in NYC is that there's good access to tennis courts near her. It also won't be hard for her to look for hitting partners.
Davai Lena! Advanced Happy Birthday too!
