Sydney Final: Dementieva def. Serena Williams 6-3 6-2!!

Well at least I got the first set correctly, didn't think Serena would go down this easily. But she always perform much better at the Slams and there might be some issue with her left knee as it was strapped (not too heavily though)

Dementieva did perform rather impressively. She was moving Serena left to right and hitting some ferocious groudstrokes that are steady yet penetrating, this can really unnerve an opponment. And she ONLY double faulted twice or three times I think, which is a key to her recent success for the past year or so.

Well that's too bad for Serena, but congrats to Elena Dementieva to her first title of the year!

Oh, and the Williams sister are on the same side of the draw at Australian Open AGAIN! Let's hope that Venus will get through the first week this year around. And the Belgians, Clijster and Henin are on the other half and might meet in the quarters, but Henin will first have to get past Dementieva in the 2nd round. Given Dementieva's form these past two weeks, it might be a bit of a daunting task for Justine Henin to beat this in-form top player of the women's tour. Again, we'll see, never say never in tennis...
