    MOSCOW, October 11 (RIA Novosti) - Russian tennis star Yelena Dementyeva said Tuesday that nothing is standing between her and the number one spot in women's tennis rankings.

    "I believe nothing can stop me from becoming the world's number one player," she said at a news conference at the Kremlin Cup. "Certainly, I have to improve some elements of my game, but I gain confidence every year defeating great players."

    She also said her main goal this season was to compete in the Women Tennis Association (WTA) finals.

    Dementyeva, seeded fourth in the Kremlin Cup, will face Sesil Karatancheva from Bulgaria in the second round.
