Player of the week: Elena Dementieva

Elena Dementieva enjoyed a fantastic week as she captured her 9th WTA title in Doha. 2007 wasn't a good season for Elena, as she missed part of the season due to a rib injury and was dropped out of the Top 10 after 186 consecutive weeks in it. But season ended with a hopeful victory her home tournament in Moscow.

And on 2008 things seem to go better for Elena. After her victory in Doha she's back on Top 10 and what's better, she feels she can beat the top players. At least she did in Doha, where she defeated world #2 Ana Ivanovic and world #3 Svetlana Kuznetsova. She made it in her own style, coming back from a set down in the quarters, semis and final against Ivanovic, Schiavone and Kuznetsova respectively. A real fighter that truly deserves our Player of the week title.
