Berlin: Dementieva sneaks to 3rd round
Would you call it a Dementieva match if it was not a three-setter? Most likely not. Today was no exception. Another thrilling three-setter from Elena Dementieva. This time, her victim is Meghann Shaughnessy. Dementieva rallied back from a set down to win the match 5-7 6-3 6-1. After dropping the first set, it was pretty much all Elena. She even served much better today. Only 6 double faults and very good service percentages. If she carries on like this, I won't be surprised if she beats Nadia Petrova in the 3rd round tomorrow.

Nadia Petrova had an easier match than Elena today. Petrova beat Severine Bremond 6-4 6-2. Petrova and Dementieva met 9 times previously, Petrova leading 6-3. It's hardly a basis of what could possibly happen tomorrow as their last meeting was way back in 2004 where Elena bested Nadia in straight sets. It's weird that both girls have been together in the top 10 for so long but they never really faced each other when both were top 10. Petrova is still there at number 9 while Elena has slipped in the rankings because of her recent injury. Both are experiencing far from stellar years this season but tomorrow's match can change all that. Whoever wins that match just might start a good swing. I just have a feeling....

Anyways, I hope it's Elena who reaches the quarters. She really needs it.

Davai Elena!
