Lena wins Moscow, comes back to Top 10 on her birthday
Vamos! Vamos! Vamos!

*clap clap clap*

What a wonderful day! At the start of the week, who would have thought that Elena Dementieva would be the one holding the Kremlin Cup trophy in today's final? Of course, us Elena fans wished and hoped that she will finally win her home tournament. Third time really is the charm. She got to the finals here in 2001 and 2004, and she finally got it this time around.

And she did not just beat ho-hum players. She beat a ton of in-form and talented players starting from Alicia Molik, to Patty Schnyder, to Victoria Azarenka, Dinara Safina and of course, the great Serena Williams who Elena has never beaten or even taken a set off before.

Oh, this is so sweet. This win will see her back in the Top 10 tomorrow, her birthday, when the new rankings are published. This is her 8th career title and her biggest one to date.

A lot of people have already written Elena off. I'm that they'll be thinking twice now before they say it again. Elena has once again proved that she still has the game to be one of women's tennis's elite.

Davai Elena!

Oh by the way, the score in today's match was 5-7 6-1 6-1 in favor, of course, to Elena Dementieva.

Happy Birthday Lena!

    Hey MJ,

    Welcome back. So its going to take a Tier1 win by Elena to bring you out of blogging retirement ;)

    What a fine performance by Elena. While it is wishful thinking, wouldn't it be amazing if ED won in Zurich and the Generali Linz (not sure if she is even entered) and qualified for the year ending championships?

    Let us ignore the wretched troll who posted before me. May it be consumed by the flames of hell.

    Enjoy and hope to see some more posts from you.
