P.O.I. - her highest rank is #15 in 1999 - so she is nearly there again! Well done Elena!

I noticed. There are 8 Russians in the top 16, and Elena belongs there.
She earned over $750,000 in 2004 prizemoney.

i have!
i'm always talking about her bieng old school tennis of the best kind, and that she's almost #15 again.
now kim as on her back, so i suggest she get's some clay wins and maybe, just maybe - she can improve her career high.
she never has great years as you said.
she's not a big-game girl. she just doesn't lose 1st and 2nd round, almost. she always seems to be in the QF, never winning the big girls, but always getting the furthest she can with what she's supposed to win.
i really like her, she's a great athlete and one of those "i've been here since the dinosours left" type.
i also wish that this year she get's one of the slams in doubles. she's been in the YEC for doubles for like 6 years and a row and never won i think, and the slams haven't been kind to her as well.
only the best of luck elena!

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

I notice

A lot of people follows Lena Likhovtseva
And i'm so proud of her
Last year she was on 3 in doubles ranking right after Vivi and Paola (the previous best was #4 in 2001) and she won Fed Cup
Simply waiting when she will be back on 15 place or high (hope this year)
Seems she need to do it this mounth cos then she will need to

Shonami Slam , BTW, she already have GS Mixed title

Lena beat Dulko 6-4 in the third.
Lena and Ai play doubles later today.

I'm very proud of her. I hope she can get a new career high ranking. She will probably need a good performance at one of the slams to do it though. But I believe in her abilities.

I'm happy for her. However she will have lotsa points to defend this summer cause last year she was simply on fire during the american hardcourt season.

Elena.

She is my favourite Russian.

It's a bit surprising given by the not so good start Elena had in the very beginning of 2004.... She has really stepped it up since!

Thank you for all these moments over the last years! Supported you until your final point!

Well done Lena.

And now she plays a slumping Vera, and Molik's out...
