elena dementieva reaches the semis in tokyo

Elena Dementieva is through to the semifinals at the Toray Pan Pacific Open after taking out second seed Vera Zvonareva 7-5, 6-2. Up next for Elena is Francesca Schiavone. On the other side, Caroline Wozniacki advanced to the semis after Agnieszka Radwanska retired with a left foot injury; the Dane’s slated to face Azarenka. (Draw: Singles)

Meanwhile, Dementieva’s shed that muumuu everyone groaned about (from the US Open), replacing it with separates in the same shade but with a shiny layer of fabric to help accentuate her shape.

Update: This set won’t be available for sale stateside. Our next Yonex option will be what Lena’s wearing for the 2011 Australian Open.
