How will Elena fare at the 2007 US Open?
The final Grand Slam event of the year is upon us. On Monday, more than 200 tennis players will be crowding at Flushing Meadows, New York to try and get the US Open championship.

Elena Dementieva is seeded 14th in this event. This has been a disappointing year for Elena when it comes to the Grand Slams. She was eliminated earlier than she should have at the past 3 slams this year: 4th round at the Australian Open, and 3rd round at both the French Open and Wimbledon. Hopefully, she can make a good run at Flushing Meadows. After all, this is New York. The place where she reached her second grand slam final in 2004, semifinals in 2000 and 2005, and quarters last year. Nothing is impossible for Elena in New York.

I have to say, I'm not so happy with Elena's draw. She is in the top half where all the contenders are. Henin, Jankovic, Ivanovic, Venus, Serena. In her quarter alone, she has Jankovic, Ivanovic and Venus. But I still believe, nothing is impossible for Elena in New York.

Elena Dementieva will face frenchwoman Stephanie Cohen-Aloro who is currently ranked 94th in the world. Elena leads their head-to-heads 3-0 but I'm surprised to see that their last two matches (both way back in 2004) went to three sets. Anyway, they've never met on hardcourts and Elena will definitely be the heavy favorite in this match. I'm not expecting Elena to win this match easily coz I know she always has troubles during the first round of tournaments but I am expecting her to win this one.

If Elena wins her opening match, she will face Jill Craybas or a qualifier in the second round. Lurking in her part of the draw is dangerous mom Sybille Bammer, seeded 19th, who she might face in the 3rd round if the seedings hold.

If the seedings still hold and Elena Dementieva gets through her first 3 matches, the tougher matches will immediately start at the fourth round by the name of Jelena Jankovic. Jelena Jankovic is seeded third in this event if they meet in the 4th round, this will be a rematch of last year's quarterfinals. Hopefully, Elena will get her revenge (As I said earlier, nothing is impossible for Elena in New York). ;)

Either 5th seed Ana Ivanovic or Wimbledon champ Venus Williams will be waiting at the quarterfinals and then Justine Henin or Serena Williams in the semis. Wow, what a draw! I am hoping for a very long 2 weeks for Elena Dementieva.

I really believe that Elena can still pull upsets and make a deep run in New York. I really believe that nothing is impossible for Elena Dementieva in New York.

Davai Elena!

    In New Haven’s semifinal, at 12 pm, under a very hot sun and under the eyes of his boyfriend Maxim Afinogenov, Lena play finally very well and won the first set against Kuzn. At the end of firt set she speaked to refree for going to the bathroom. Then she started to feel ill. :( I think she could finish the match… but I think it was the first retire in her career, wasn’t?
    At the moment an importan question is in my head: has she started the “setting’s avenue”? I don’t want believe this.
    Forza Lena, nothing is impossible for you in New York! We want a semifinal at the U.S. Open!!!!

    What is the "setting's avenue"?

    Anyway, you are so lucky that you are able to watch tennis matches on TV. I am disappointed right now coz none of our sports channels are covering the US Open.

    Thank you for always checking this blog. I really appreciate it and means a lot to me. :)

    Sorry, but it’s not important. It was a wrong consideration but now I’m not thinking that… :)
    So, I will try to describe the matchs who I will see. I think they broadcast 1/8finals: so it depends by Lena…
    bye bye
