Is it just me or is watching Lena win the best thing ever?

Even though I’ll probably be a hopelessly devoted Elena Dementieva fan until the end of days, I’m not terribly excited about the semis. I’ll just focus on the good things so far. Like how she managed to not choke up a cakedraw like she always does. And how she miraculously defended her semifinal points. I’m just very proud of her and I think it’s already a win making this far. Congrats, Lena!

Okay, from her presser:

Q. People might be expecting an all‑Williams final. Do you think we can have an all‑Russian final instead?

ELENA DEMENTIEVA: Can we play just two finals instead?

Best idea ever? And we can give each winner a trophy. Come on, you guys. I believe this idea should be taken in consideration and also mine of doing a huge Natinal Tournament in Moscow — mandatory for the Russians.

1 1 Safina, Dinara 27/04/86 RUS 9801 19
4 4 Dementieva, Elena 15/10/81 RUS 6591 21
5 5 Kuznetsova, Svetlana 27/06/85 RUS 6191 19
7 7 Zvonareva, Vera 07/09/84 RUS 5360 24
10 10 Petrova, Nadia 08/06/82 RUS 3520 25
29 30 Pavlyuchenkova, Anastasia 03/07/91 RUS 1708 21
30 31 Chakvetadze, Anna 05/03/87 RUS 1681 21
31 26 Kleybanova, Alisa 15/07/89 RUS 1665 22

37 38 Vesnina, Elena 01/08/86 RUS 1399 22
46 46 Makarova, Ekaterina 07/06/88 RUS 1295 20
49 52 Dushevina, Vera 06/10/86 RUS 1279 22
59 58 Kirilenko, Maria 25/01/87 RUS 1008 25
60 59 Sharapova, Maria 19/04/87 RUS 990 12
70 68 Kudryavtseva, Alla 03/11/87 RUS 929 27
117 118 Diatchenko, Vitalia 02/08/90 RUS 569 16
121 122 Rodina, Evgeniya 04/02/89 RUS 548 21

The best 16 players from Russia in four groups, four players each. EPIC TOURNEY IT WOULD BE. It could be only two groups but then we would leave out Lena V., Kiri and Sharapova. I don’t know if people would like that in, you know, my head.

Yes, you can tell I have too much time in my hands when I come up with insane shit like that. But, eh, I own a blog called “Fierce Tennis”, so what else is new?

    Lena is super boring IMO, sorry. Dunno, she’s just not… interesting… and can be frustrating to watch. However, all Russian best of 16 tourney? HELL YEAH
