serve and looks together. Groundstrokes are known to the die-hard tennis fans only.

Lena D would be known to a lot people just for her serve...
..but those of us who have seen a lot of her over the last 6 years know Lena for her top class groundstrokes, lovely personality, courageous attitude and nice looks
Lena's performance at the USO hopefully gained her a lot more respect and showed a lot of people that theres a lot more to Lena D than an interesting serve

I gather that her teeth are well known in some circles, hence her nickname "The Snake". That said, I love me some Lena D.

I don't know. I like her, though wouldn't say she was really famous. Not anymore famous than any other player.

I'd say serve. The whole of the WTA tour and probably the ATP tour know about that serve. Whilst I cannot wait til she improves it, its also something that makes her very human (I'm not defending it btw).

There have been artciles and photo shoots about her looks too, so that could also help.

Her groundies and personality are not well documented at the moment IMO, but I'm sure if she continues her success, she can definitely become more famours for her game and personality too.

Udachi Elena!!

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

I noticed her ground strokes. The serve never use to be this bad.
