Yep, UE upon UE and I stayed up to watch it...

Disappointing but glad she had a good tournement. Don't think she is much of a clay court player so probably won't expect much from her there. Hopefully we will see something good in Wimbledon. A last 16 or even QF will be very nice!

Go Bally!

Justine Henin

Thank you.

farina-elia played really well and looks in incredible shape

You have long been my goal, been my chasing, been my soul. I have hung out on the edge. But I just couldn't let go. There's a time to forgive. There's a time to forget. Close your eyes, get ready, set. Walk me down this fall I'm taking but don't let me go yet. Oh let me go, sweetheart, throw me, around you, like you know me. And remember me too. Remember me too from a dream i had of you. Mary Margaret O'Hara | Dream I Had | Apartment Hunting | 2002.

At least Elena will not need to rebook her plane ticket for the 6th time
