Tough road lies ahead in Berlin
This week, Elena Dementieva flies to Berlin, Germany to participate in the Qatar Telecom German Open. This is one of two Tier I clay tournaments in the WTA Tour.

Last week, Dementieva fell to Venus Williams in the 2nd Round of the Warsaw tournament but she comes back this week with some matches under her belt. But another tough road lies ahead for her.

Her injury saw her ranking slide to number 13 so she only got to be the 10th seed this week. Because of this, she did not receive a first round BYE. On her opening round, she will face 31st-ranked Mara Santangelo of Italy. Interestingly, the two never faced each other before. Santangelo is a good player and can pull an upset but I think Elena will be prepared for this match.

If Elena wins her 1st match, the following are her possible opponents in the next few rounds:
2nd round: Meghann Shaughnessy or Tathiana Garbin
3rd round: Nadia Petrova
QF: Svetlana Kuznetsova or Shahar Peer
SF: Jelena Jankovic, Li Na or Justine Henin
Honestly, I think Elena can go as far as the quarters. If she plays well, even farther. Her quarterfinal possible opponents are very beatable.

Davai Elena!
