It's really shitty what's gone on with her.

But when she gets healthy, she's a force to be reckoned with.

Iroda Made An Impression

Saw Iroda play a doubles qualifying match a couple of years ago. She was partnered with Bovina against 2 very low ranked Americans. It became apparent after a few games that the Americans were actually scared of Iroda. Whenever Iroda got a second serve to her forehand (the Americans had weak serves), she would plaster a return directly at the server's partner at net. Both of the Americans were afraid of that shot. The were sort of jumping out of the way while attempting to make desparation, stab, volleys. Iroda and Bovina won that match easily.

In their next match, against 2 Japanese girls, saw Iroda drill a hard forehand right into Bovina's butt! Elena screamed pretty loudly. It was kinda humorous. Would definitely like to see Iroda play live again.

I actually prefer Iroda carrying a bit of extra weight - as it seems from the attached pics that it goes straight to her chest (yum!)

She turned 22 on Jan 7 - although I reckon she's more like a 44 around the chest!
