Oz Open: Elena through to the second week, Vaidisova next
Elena Dementieva did not wast any time today and just needed an hour to put herself into the fourth round of the Australian Open 2007. She demolished Maria Elena Camerin 6-1 6-3. She only dropped her serve once during the entire match and that was when she was serving for the match at 5-1 in the second set. She had a pretty clean match today as she only served 4 double faults and hit 21 winners compared to her opponent's measly 3. It's good that Elena won pretty easily, she should have some confidence coming into the second week.

This marks the third time that Dementieva has reached the fourth round of the Australian Open. She reached the fourth round here in 2002 and 2005 but hasn't gone past this round. Elena Dementieva has reached the quareterfinals or better of all slams except the Australian Open. She will try to do it this year but tenth seed Nicole Vaidisova awaits her in the fourth round.

Only once in their career had Vaidisova and Dementieva met. It happened last year at Tokyo, Elena won in 3 sets after losing the first set. But that match happened before Vaidisova entered the Top 10. Although Vaidisova is only ranked 12th right now, she has a lot more experience now than last year.

Vaidisova has a good serve and a good baseline game. This is actually a very interesting matchup. Elena should clean up her game and stay away from making a lot of unforced errors if she wants to reach the quarters. Vaidisova is a tier higher than those that Elena faced in the previous rounds. So let's hope that Elena does herself justice on Sunday and show everyone what she's got. Let's make it to the quarters Lena!

Doubles news

Yesterday, Elena Dementieva and Flavia Pennetta defeated the Japanese duo of Akiko Morigami and Aiko Nakamura 4-6 6-3 6-4. It was a pretty workout for them and they will face Tsevetana Pironkova and Martina Sucha tomorrow. Their match is second at Show Court 7. Let's go Elena and Flavia!

Davai Elena!
