Elena Dementieva wins in Toronto

24 08 2009




This tournament with almost all of the top players had some great match-up’s ending with Dementieva beating Maria Sharapova 6-4 6-3. I am not a big Sharapova fan, but it’s good for women’s tennis that she is back in finals of big tournaments. She is still not 100% since her long injury but getting there slowly. She changed her serve motion to put less pressure on her shoulder but since then her serve, a one-time weapon is more liability now. And her movement is still not very good either. Dementieva played a very solid game though yesterday and proved her win against Serena Williams in the semi-final was not a fluke. Kim Clijsters played some really solid tennis as well in her second tournament back after 2 years off and beat top 10 player Azarenka before falling to Jelena Jankovic in a tight three setter. All this and the news that Mary Pierce will make a comeback next year shows the WTA tour has a great 2010 ahead.
