Elena kicks off 2007 season against Sugiyama
First off, I'd like to say sorry for not being able to update my blog for quite a while. I was going through a lot of personal stuff the past couple of months so blogging here was briefly interrupted. I was supposed to go to Hong Kong where Elena played last week but due to personal reasons, I wasn't able to attend the tournament.

Anyway, Elena Dementieva is seeded sixth in the Medibank International which is held at Sydney. She will face Ai Sugiyama in her opening round match on Monday. Hopefully, Elena would have little problems with Sugiyama tomorrow. Even though she didn't win Hong Kong, she had terrific three-set matches against Vaidisova (which she won) and Sharapova (lost unfortunately). I wasn't able to catch the matches on TV but I hope she's in a good form.

If Elena succeeds against Sugiyama tomorrow, waiting for her in the 2nd round is Na Li. Possible quarterfinal opponent is 2nd seed Svetlana Kuznetsova. A tough draw for Elena but certainly not impossible.

Elena is defending only a single point until the Australian Open so there's definitely a lot of chances for her to improve her ranking. Let's start this year with a positive note! Let's go Elena!

    i watched her match on tv .... Elena did quite well in Hong kong...her groundstroke is there ..just that her serve is letting her down again especially during her match against Maria who served well...hope lena can focus more on the serve :)
    GOOD LUCK elena for 2007!
