Elena comes back with a win, Venus next
First off, I'd like to apologize if I wasn't able to update this site much earlier. I was planning to make a post last week about Elena Dementieva's comeback this week but my dial-up network sucks. I just had my DSL connection today so I could promise you that I'm blogging in this site again. I'll post results and previews as soon as I can.

Let's get down to business.

On Tuesday, Elena Dementieva narrowly won her match against Meileen Tu (USA) 6(5)-7 6-0 7-5. Both women had difficulty holding their serves and making them. It was really a bad situation for both girls as they played with long pants and long-sleeved shirts because of the cold weather. It even snowed at one point in their match. It's a pretty nice win for Elena. And what a roller-coaster ride for us fans it was.

At the post-match conference, Elena mentioned that it was her 3 broken ribs that kept her off the tour for more than 2 months. I knew it a rib injury but I didn't think that it was that bad. Obviously, this injury is still affecting Elena, especially her serve. In tonight's match against Venus Williams, she could not let this affect her.

Venus Williams and Elena Dementieva has battled 6 times before where Venus leads Elena 4-2. The last time they met was during the 2nd round of FedCup action where Venus creamed Elena alive 1 and 2.

We all know that Dementieva has some problems facing the Williamses particularly because of her weak serve and Williams has a pretty good and effective one. It will be harder for her to break Venus because she serves really good especially when she's on her element.

I still think that Elena has a good chance of advancing to the quarters tonight. The present Venus is not yet the Venus of old. She's had a good comeback winning Memphis but lately, she showed that she could lose to good players. Although Elena lacks matches, Elena showed us on her previous match that when push comes to shove, she still knows how to win.

I really hope Elena does well tonight. I know she can.

Davai Elena!

I'm just happy to see her back on the tour. It's not the same without her.
