Dementieva and Safina on course to meet again in s'Hertogenbosch
Dinara Safina beat her in Berlin, and she beat her at Roland Garros, but soon, Elena Dementieva is likely to have a good chance to reverse her fortunes. The two will probably meet next week in the semifinals of the Ordina Open. They are both clay specialists and do well on hard courts, so meeting on grass could challenge them both. Safina leads 4-2 in their meetings, but this will be the first time they have ever played each other on a grass court.
