Dementieva to face Bammer in US Open 3rd round
Elena Dementieva's match against Petra Cetkovska in the 2nd round of the US Open is a much enjoyable affair for Elena's fans as she blitzed through her opponent 6-3 6-2 in an hour and 12 minutes. She served pretty well and fired off winners from all over the court.

Elena will have a very tricky opponent in the third round as she face the popular tennis mom Sybille Bammer. Bammer had a fantastic year so far by cracking the Top 20 and having scored a win against Serena Williams in an Australian Open warmup event. Bammer is seeded 19th in this event and she must feel that she has nothing to lose when she faces Dementieva later this week.

Interestingly, Bammer and Dementieva has only met once in their entire professional career in tennis. What's even more interesting is that their only career meeting was in 1998 in a qualifying round for a tournament which Elena won in 3 sets. Dementieva was ranked 285th then while Bammer was 400th. I'm pretty amazed that they haven't played each other in 9 years. So this head-to-head match doesn't really say anything about what might be the outcome of their upcoming match.

Anyway, Dementieva will be coming in to this match as a slight favorite but Bammer is a very dangerous opponent especially when she gets on her stride. But I still think that the US Open is Elena's turf so I'm pretty psyched for this match. Nothing is impossible for Elena in New York. She'll probably pull this one off and we'll see her again in the second week of the US Open.
