Elena, the tenth seed at the Sony Ericsson Open in Miami, Florida, faces Kateryna Bondarenko in the second round--probably to be played on Saturday. [^o)] Well, she handily dismissed sister Alona in Dubai. Hope I can catch a stream. [H]


Should Dementieva win her second round, Francesca Schiavone, Yan Zi, or Dominika Cibulkova loom in the third round. She is 4-4 against the wily Italian and has never played against either Zi or Cibulkova.


The top ten seed she drew, Anna Chakvetadze, could meet her in the fourth round, if Tamira Paszek doesn’t have anything to say about that. She leads Chakvetadze 2-1, but lost their most recent encounter in the ‘06 Moscow semifinals 75 36 60.


Elena with Willis McGahee


Key Biscayne, Florida (March 26): Elena Dementieva posed for photos with Willis McGahee of the Baltimore Ravens of the US National Football League after a friendly game of tennis.

Dementieva's got a decent chance in miami. i mean the way she booted ivanovic and kuznetsova at dubai was impressive.

She defeated K Bondarenko 60 64. Next up will be Dominika Cibulkova, who she's never played. Now that match I'd really like to see!  [H] Eurosport coverage begins on Monday, so I'm keeping fingers crossed for scheduling that may result in a stream.

If she plays at the Dubai level, y'all may be right. The way Mauresmo & Jankovic both just barely squeezed through today does make the way to the final look quite do-able. [H]

So Elena bageled Dominika in the first set in about 15 minutes and was on her way in the second when the damned rain interfered [st] Though they didn't stop playing for long, I think it threw Elena off. Then we got the double faults and all that and the next two sets (she dropped the second in a tiebreak)  was one of those long, tedious battles over two hours. 60 67 64.


Hot, muggy, slow and tedious seemed the rule there today--which is Florida as I know it, plus it stinks of swamp & dead fish. [:P] As late as things have dragged on, I don't know if Chaki will get to play tonight or not.


Chaki is playing. She won't get off the court until after midnight Florida time.


Well, pfffff! Chaki lost. [:(] Crappy weather, endless delays--just a bad day all around. While most of the Russian girls got through, I think they all had difficulties. Anyway, Elena will then play Sabine Lisicki of Germany.

And dismissed Sabine forthwith: 63 62 with only four double faults--and that with some fairly problematic wind.[H] However, only 49% first serve percentage--need to bring that up to confront JJ. So now, thanks to the screwed-up system down there (which we're supposed to just accept) unless they figure they've gotta cover JJ 'cause their pet Serb lost, Elena is through to the quarters without being seen on TV one damned time! [:@] That's just wrong. Hey, FSN, ATP, y'all "masters" this! lol


Good luck also to Vera Z tonight, after which half the quarterfinalists would be Russian, yah, yah, yah.

Good Luck to Elena as well! Jankovic needs to drop her first serve percentage and let the pathetic second serve in though. Just try not to think about the fact that Elena only won 6 games in her previous 2 matches with JJ.
