Dementieva Wins Match of Palm Beach Tennis Stars


Those are highlights from Saturday's match between two women who aren't natives of Palm Beach County but who both now live there part time. Elena Dementieva, who has a home in Boca Raton, beat Serena Williams, of Palm Beach Gardens, in straight sets, advancing to the finals, where yesterday Dementieva beat Maria Sharapova to win the tournament.

It was the only the fourth time in 12 tries that Dementieva was able to knock off Sharapova. But Serena's got bigger fish to fry. Or, to be precise, a bunch of pigskin-playing mammals.
