Dementieva takes Luxembourg title
For a long time--even when she was serving poorly--a three-set match against Elena Dementieva generally meant a Dementieva victory. But lately, even with an improved serve, a three-set match against Dementieva has meant a Dementieva loss. Dementieva turned that around today, defeating Caroline Wozniacki, 2-6, 6-4, 7-6, to win the 2008 FORTIS Championships in Luxembourg.
In the doubles final, the team of Sorana Cirstea and Marina Erakovic defeated Vera Dushevina and Mariya Koryttseva, 2-6, 6-3, 10-8.
