Not What I Think of as a Russian Tank

Posted by gauloises1 on May 21, 2010

According to this article and the translation supplied on tennisforum.com, Elena Dementieva may be questioned by the WTA after her 75 46 64 loss to Tsetvana Pironkova in Warsaw yesterday. Polish Eurosport alleges she had a plane ticket to Paris booked before her match.

I don’t believe it, if only because I don’t feel like a torturous early loss for Demmy is an unusual enough event to require any kind of special circumstances to explain it. But there’s definitely something up with her, and I won’t be expecting too much from her in Paris. (Of course, that’s traditionally when she comes up with the goods.)

Speaking of Roland Garros and low expectations, Caroline Wozniacki was forced to retire a set down to Li Na in Warsaw today. She’s reportedly optimistic about playing in Paris, and I’d be stunned if she didn’t. Still, it’s a worrying thing to happen the week before a Slam.

So … all in all, Warsaw not going too well for the top ladies.
