Elena Dementieva was the 12th seed at the 2010 US Open and made it to the fourth round before falling to Sam Stosur in a third-set tiebreak. Elena’s still rusty after that calf injury that kept her out of commission for two months.
She and fellow Yonex-er (and fellow Elena) Elena Baltacha wore the company’s New York Dress, with gold piping across the upper chest, a wrap skirt, and an embossed plaid design on the fabric (loves!).
And Baltacha lost in the second round to 27th seed Petra Kvitova 6-7 (5), 3-6.

On the men’s side, Lleyton Hewitt nabbed the last seeded spot but fell in the first round to Paul-Henri Mathieu 3-6, 4-6, 7-5, 6-4, 1-6. And David Nalbandian, as the 31st seed, made it to the third round before falling to Verdasco 2-6, 6-3, 3-6, 2-6. Both Hewitt and Nalbandian wore the same kit.
