Oz Open: Dementieva through to the 3rd round
Elena Dementieva survived a scare earlier today, beating Martina Muller 7-5 3-6 6-0. Unlike her 1st round match, Elena seemed a bit out of it today, especially in the second set. It was a bit obvious that her serve was far from being on today as she served 16 double faults. And I also don't think that her groundies were really working today as well, as she committed 54 unforced errors compared to only 15 winners. But winning inspite of all this only tells us how much of a fighter Elena is. Even in the worse times, she finds a way to win. And what about that bagel in the final set? Just Amazing!:)

Next up for Elena is Maria Elena Camerin of Italy, currently ranked at no. 55. Their only previous meeting was in 2004 Hasselt which Elena won in straight sets. Her best showing at a Grand Slam was last year her at Oz where she reached the third round. She matched that this year and she will try to go to the fourth-round, in the way of Elena.

Camerin bested Elena Vesnina today 8-6 in the third. It was a good test for her but with all the heat in Melbourne, it might affect her on Friday. But whatever, Elena should pull out this one and move on to the fourth round.

I noticed that Elena has been coming to the net more often and I think that's a good sign. Remember in 2004 when she was coming a lot to the net? Yeah, she reached 2 Grand Slam finals that year. But after she split with her former coach, Olga Morozova, the net game was gradually phased out. I'm actually glad to see her net statistics here at the Open. Though she may not be the best volleyer on tour, she definitely have a decent volley and her footwork is very good so I believe it's good for her. Keep it up Lena!

Tomorrow, Elena Dementieva and Flavia Pennetta will face Akiko Morigami and Aiko Nakamura in the first round of the doubles tournament. The pair reached the third round last year and I hope they can improve this year. Flavia's wrist is still suspect but I hope she gets back on form soon so she can win on singles as well. And I wish them all the luck tomorrow. I hope they finish their match (with a win, of course) quickly tomorrow so Elena would have a lot of time to rest and prepare for her 3rd round match.

Davai Elena!
