Dementieva and Sharapova gets LA rematch
A year ago, Elena Dementieva snapped her losing streak against Maria Sharapova at the semifinals of this tournament en route to the title. Tomorrow, they will once again face off each other, this time for a slot in the semis.

This will be their 9th career meeting with Sharapova currently holding an overwhelming 6-2 lead against Dementieva. Earlier today, both played and won their quarterfinal matches in very different fashion. Who would have thought that Elena Dementieva would cruise in her match against Daniela Hantuchova while Maria Sharapova would have a grueling 3-hour match against Michaella Krajicek? If you told me this earlier, I'd tell you you're crazy. But this is tennis, anything can happen.

Tomorrow, anything can also happen. Sharapova is probably the overwhelming favorite but I would not count out Elena just yet. Elena has been playing better and it looks like she's getting more confident every match. Sharapova on the other hand just came from winning a title in San Diego last week and she must also think she has the upper hand against Dementieva.

All I can say is, Elena has a chance to upset Sharapova tomorrow. She is probably fresher than her opponent so she should take advantage of that. Good luck Elena!
