Elena Dementieva tops Serena Williams in Baltimore exhibition


Russian Elena Dementieva beat American Serena Williams 6-4 6-4 at Pam Shriver PNC Tennis Classic, an exhibition event held in Baltimore.

The 23rd PNC Tennis Classic raised $150,000 for the Baltimore Community Foundation.

“We’re here to have fun,” the second-ranked Williams said before the match. “We’re not going to take it Grand Slam final serious, but at the same time, we want to give the people a great show.”

“Baltimore is not a tennis destination, so it’s a great opportunity for people here to come and watch two great tennis players,” the world No.4 Dememtieva said. “I’m proud to be a part of it.” (source: Baltimore Sun)
