Almost over
In-form Svetlana Kuznetsova powered past Elena Dementieva 7-5 6-3 in their match on Wednesday. Once again, Elena started slow and cannot hold serve during the first set.

It's almost impossible to see Elena getting to the semis of the championships so the season's almost over for her. Her last match will be against Kim Clijsters on Friday. Although it would probably be a no-bearing match, I hope she ends her season on a winning note.

Davai Elena!

Bad start in Madrid
Elena Dementieva served 15 double faults in her lost to Maria Sharapova in Madrid 1-6 4-6.

It's just sad! I thought Lena could at least take this match in 3 sets. Oh well! Better luck next time I guess. She'll be battling Svetlana Kuznetsova on Wednesday. Their H2H is tied at 3-3 although it was Kuznetsova who won their last encounter at New Haven.

Davai Elena! Win this match!

Dementieva-Sharapova Round 4
For the fourth time this year, Elena Dementieva and Maria Sharapova will face each other on court, this time at the Sony Ericsson Championships in Madrid. Sharapova leads 5-2 but Elena came away in straight sets the last time they met (Los Angeles).

Coming in to this tournament, Sharapova comes in as the slight favorite. But coming in to this match against Dementieva, Sharapova is the heavy favorite. Sharapova is currently on an eight-match winning streak, winning back-to-back titles at Zurich and Linz.

I'm not really sure about Elena's form right now. She battled a thigh injury in her last couple of tournaments so I'm not sure if she's recovered from that. The surface of the courts in Madrid is fast so I hope her serve works well tonight against Sharapova. I hope she wins tonight.

I'm a bit worried actually. Elena hasn't won a set in two years in the year-end championships. Hopefully, the new courts in Madrid favors her. Good luck Elena! I believe you can do it!

Davai Elena!!!

Dementieva on Madrid Ball Boys
Let's see what Elena has to say about the models/ball boys in Madrid:

"We were practicing the other day and I don't think they really know what they
have to do on the court because they are too busy watching the players," the
25-year-old Russian told reporters ahead of the Madrid event, which starts on

"We'll have to see if it will work out or not but I think it will be a distraction for them to do their job. I don't think that they realize what they have let themselves in for and that they will have to be very careful about what they are doing on the court. The players are so focused and sometimes they get crazy with the ball boys so they don't know what they will be facing in a couple of days."

They don't know what they will be facing in a couple of days. That line really cracked me up. Haha!

Justine Henin-Hardenne also said something funny...
"I'm very excited but I'm married so I can look but not touch."

I didn't expect that from Justine. Hehe!
