Dementieva pulls out of Indian Wells, Top 10
In a very sad turn of events, Elena Dementieva has withdrawn from the Pacific Life Open at Indian Wells this week due to a right rib case injury. This injury will keep her from playing for at least 6 weeks according to reports. This means that she won't be playing Miami and the Fed Cup tie in April is not a sure thing as well. Being sidelined is a very bad news for this will cause Elena her Top 10 ranking. This may be the last week of Elena being in the top 10 (for now, but she'll surely come back later) unless Anna Chakvetadze fails to reach the quarterfinals of the Pacific Life Open.

Elena Dementieva has been a fixture in the Top 10 since 2003 when she won her first career WTA tournament at Amelia Island. Since then, Elena has never dropped out of the Top 10. Despite her serve, she's been very consistent in posting good results. In 2004, she was the first Russian woman to reach 2 Grand Slam finals by reaching the French Open and the US Open. Her career-high ranking was at No. 4 after the US Open fortnight.

According to reports, the inury is quite bad and will take time to heal. Elena said she overpracticed in Moscow, and she even has a hard time sleeping because of the injury. The injury also makes it difficult for her to breathe.

Let's all wish her the best of luck and that she may get well very soon. Hopefully, she'd be ready before the French Open.

Davai Elena! All of your fans are here for ou during this most difficult time.

    You're the first Pinoy Dementieva fan I've encountered.

    Hopefully, Lena can overcome all the barriers in her game and start winning big tourneys when she comes back (coz I'm really sick of Sharapova and all the younger Russian tennis players getting all the attention).
