Elena Dementieva Heads to the Australian Open With a Perfect Record and Big Passion.

Elena Dementieva Jan09 You go girl!  Elena Dementieva heads into the Australian Open having won two for two this year. Pictured left she wears her winning combination from both Auckland and Sydney, January 2009.

The dress and matching visor are from Yonex and are part of the company's new spring collection. We've been told it won't be available until April, so we'll have to just watch the line in action a bit longer. Seems the fiery red dress has channeled some burning passion for the Russian.

Elena's 2008 Yonex dresses are still available at Tennis-Warehouse: Melbourne, Paris and New York. Her stick is the Yonex RDS 001 Midplus.
