Elena through to Tokyo QF
In a match full of service breaks, Elena Dementieva defeated Elena Likhovtseva 6-3 7-5. The eight double faults she served today probably made the match close. But I'm just happy to see her in the quarters. This also means more blogging for Elena! Woohoo!!!

Elena will next meet unseeded Italian Roberta Vinci. Vinci is currently ranked at no. 119. What concerns me right now is that in her match today, she only had 44% of her 1st serves in. That's a pretty bad stat. Vinci on the other hand, steamrolled Severine Bremonde 6-3 6-0 in the previous round. Interestingly, Dementieva and Vinci last met at the 1999 Italian Open Round of 16. Dementieva won that match 6-2 4-6 6-2. Dementieva was ranked 144th at that time while Vinci was at #648. Hopefully, the match tomorrow would have the same result. Though it'd be really nice if Elena could win this easily.

Doubles news

Unfortunately, Olga Savchuk and Elena Dementieva lost to Lisa Raymond and Sam Stosur 7-5 6-2. Well, I'm not really expecting them to win and I'm just glad that they gave the top seeds a work out. Although it would have been nicer if you won, well done guys!


According to Lena's blog, she went to the sumo wrestling tour. Looked like she had fun with that! Keep up the good work with the blog Lena!

Davai Elena!
