After today final I have to say how proud I am to be Elena fan . It is not possible to say about her that she is average girl. She is the one that has something special. Just look at her. Not more than 2 years ago you were wondering if she is gonna be back into top 10. She now proves what potential is in her. She remindes me of Monica in her fighting spirit and that makes me her BIG admirer. Beautiful game, smile and personality. GO ELENA! I will always cheer for you no matter what! And your US Open showing was . I was delighted with you. Good luck!
P.S. I am sorry for this thread but I am so excited with Lena. I think she is just great! Love this girl!
Happiness is like a cat. If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you. It will never come. But if you pay no attention to it and go about your business, you'll find it rubbing up against your legs and jumping into your lap. - William Bennett
Elena is a combination of beauty, talent, athleticism and power. It is so true many doubted her, but haters and fans all agree she is now a threat. She is not a player to ever be taken lightly. Simply because she fights so hard and never gives up.
Being speedy and having powerful groundies also helps too IMO
