Beautiful pictures of Rita, Elske. Thank you!

Can you please give us a brief summary of the match as you saw it?

well we didn't see the whole match. We sat next to her parents and her brother and they were so annoying so we left after one set and came back in the middle of the third. It was a good match, long rallies, not a lot of errors but in the end paola just started to play better and deserved to win

rowdy Italians huh?

I have Italian bloodlines but I'm not a pure bred. I like to call them passionate.

It wasn't her parents or brother, just friends. She only has one brother, that's Vincenzo and he now works at Club Med in Italy as a tennis coach, so rarely travels with her now. She travels with her fiance who is also her coach, he's a very nice guy but quiet.

Rita is seeded 6 in Vancouver this week, she has a tough 1st rd match against Els Callens, fingers crossed as Rita needs to win a few matches to get her ranking away from 100.

Rita beat Els Callens 6-4,6-4 then trounced poor Jennifer Hopkins 6-2,6-2 to earn a quarterfinal berth.

Keep going Rita!

wow Rita!!!!

I got so consumed by what was going on in Athens that I completely forgot Rita ws playing today. Terrific win! Takes a bit of the sting out from what otherwise was a sad day for me.

Rita played way too defensively against qualifier Linetskaya and lost the match because of it. She had opportunities to attack her weak second serve and instead retreated to the baseline. Better luck in the doubles with Flavia hopefully.
