Toronto: Cherchez La Demmy

Posted by gauloises1 on August 24, 2009

Congratulations to Elena Dementieva, everybody’s favourite headcasey Russian. Well, she’s got to be in the top five. Anyway, she beat Maria Sharapova for the Toronto title. Niiiice.


Very nice run for Sharapova to the finals though. I believe with this win she will be up to no. 30 in the rankings or thereabouts, which means she will be seeded for the US Open. Now who out of the top 8 wants this in the third round?


Probably about the same number that want Kim Clijsters.

This is a great win for Dementieva though. I choose to honour it in the best way I know how … picspam.


“Y, God?! Y????!!!!”


If there was a powderpuff somewhere in this shot, it would be everything you need to know about Elena Dementieva’s tennis career in one photograph.

I’m just saying.


How do you like your crystal eggs in the morning?


I like mine with a kiss.

    I can only hope that the further she gets at the USO the more they’ll show her boyfriend.

    I have SUCH a crush on Lena for some reason. Always have. Too bad she’ll never be able to do this in a slam.

    But seriously, I don’t think she gets nearly enough kudos for her consistency throughout the years. I’d look up some stats, but I’m too lazy. But I’m sure they’re noteworthy. She’s always in the picture even as her contemporaries have retired and floated in and out of the top of the game. I’m so glad she at least has that gold medal.

    Decent match, once you get past the horrible serving (which is something you always have to do when watching a WTA match, I find). There were some incredible rallies pitting Maria’s offence against Elena’s defence.
