Elena D retires from her match

Defending champ retires...will that knock her from the top ten?

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

poor Elenka
Recover fast!
The shoulder must have really bothered her as she made 10 double faults in the first set

And what will her ranking be after AI pts are taken off. I hope she will still be in the top 10.

You think she's top ten material?
