Dementieva fails to reach the quarters
So how do I start this? I just finished watching the match and I'm a bit depressed. Okay, here it goes...

Nicole Vaidisova did a very good job today, beating Elena Dementieva 6-3 6-3. She did a very good job returning and breaking Elena's serve. It was really heartbreaking. I just don't get it why all of Elena's second serve goes to the forehand of her opponent. I wish Elena could really improve her serve.

Here are my other observations...

Is it just me or did Elena lost some weight? She seemed thinner to me and her muscles in her arms are gone. And it seemed like she's not hitting the ball as hard anymore.

Vaidisova had a much better point construction today. Elena was just hitting the ball back to Vaidisova for most of the match.

Maybe Elena just woke up on the wrong leg. It was just really disappointing that she had to lose today. We were just a step away from the quarterfinals... Oh Elena... Anyway, I still love you. But I really, really hope that you can do something about your serve.

Good luck Elena for the rest of the season. We have a lot of time ahead of us, ou can still show everyone that you can really win a Gand Slam. Be hungrier, be more feisty. You can do it Elena! Vamos!
