When Elena Dementieva lost to fellow Russian Anastasia Myskina in the French Open final in June, she could barely hold back the tears.

But, despite suffering a second grand slam final defeat when she went down to another Russian, Svetlana Kuznetsova, 6-3 7-5 at the US Open on Saturday, Dementieva was upbeat and confident her day would come.

"I'm not really disappointed about this," said Dementieva, who beat Amelie Mauresmo and Jennifer Capriati on her way to the final.

"It's been a great tournament for me, I beat some great players and had some very tough matches," she told reporters.

"I did everything I could here and feel like I was playing some good tennis. I am satisfied."
