Elena vs. Svetlana on December 15th in Zaragoza!

in exhibition match in tribute for Conchita Martinez alongside Novotna and Maleeva...

Conchita Martínez se despide de la afición aragonesa el 15 de diciembre

Conchita Martínez se despedirá de sus paisanos el 15 de diciembre con la disputa de un trofeo en Zaragoza que llevará su nombre. El torneo contará con la presencia de Helena Dementieva, Svetlana Kuznestsova, Magdalena Maleeva y Jana Novotna.

a tenista aragonesa Conchita Martínez se despedirá de sus paisanos el 15 de diciembre con la disputa de un trofeo en Zaragoza que llevará su nombre.

El trofeo, de carácter benéfico y con vocación de perdurar en el tiempo, tendrá lugar en el pabellón Príncipe Felipe. En él participarán tenistas y ex-tenistas profesionales, como las rusas Helena Dementieva y Svetlana Kuznestsova, la búlgara Magdalena Maleeva o la checa Jana Novotna (retirada en 1999). También se espera la presencia de Virgiana Ruano, si sus problemas físicos lo permiten.

El trofeo, al que se accederá de manera gratuita, comenzará a las 17 horas con una demostración de las promesas del tenis aragonés de las categorías cadete y juvenil. A las 20 horas se enfrentarán Dementieva y Kuznetsova en un partido de exhibición.

Tras este encuentro, tendrá lugar un partido de dobles en el que tomará parte la homenajeada junto a Novotna, Maleeva y Virginia Ruano (que, en casao de no acudir, será sustituida por Janette Husarova -Eslovaquia-).

Al día siguiente, Conchita Martínez dirigirá un cursillo, el "Clinic Wilson", dirigido a niños entre 5 y 9 años, que jugarán en dos pistas de mini-tenis instaladas en la plaza del Pilar. Será entre las 10 y las 13 horas.


Ante la cercanía de la Navidad, se ha pretendido que el acto tenga carácter solidario, por lo que, en colaboración con la Casa de Guatemala y Um Draiga (Asociación de Amigos del Pueblo Saharahui en Aragón), cada persona que presencie el torneo y que done un juguete, entrará a formar parte del sorteo de un coche.

En la presentación, Conchita Martínez afirmó estar "muy ilusionada" por poder realizar el sueño de despedirse cerca de los suyos. "Quería hacer algo cerca de mi familia y decir adiós en Zaragoza, porque seguro que será muy emotivo", señaló la ex-tenista de Monzón (Huesca).

Conchita Martínez explicó que el acuerdo de patrocinio del Gobierno de Aragón y del Ayuntamiento de Zaragoza para el trofeo que lleva su nombre será, en principio, para tres años, aunque espera que sean "muchos más" para seguir vinculada a Aragón.

Probably.
Sveta said in Madrid that she was going home to St. Petersburg, then back to Spain to train.

Does this mean Conchita is involved in promoting this?

What are you talking about? They are playing in Hong Kong 2 weeks after this.
Lena and Sveta are going to be spending a lot of time together.

What happened? Are you talking about the cough syrup? Why would that cause problems between Elena and Igor?

i believe the tension began when Svetlana criticized on Dementieva's reaction after beating her somewhere in 2004 (after US Open of course) everything has gone worse @ Australian Open. Dementieva was asked about doping rumours @ Belgium month ago and she insisted her and Nathalie Dechy is clean but refused to comment on Kuznetsova situation. then the medias started to stir up by saying Dementieva had given a hint about Kuznetsova doping during that exhibition.

from that moment i thought they will never be friends anymore

That's not true. Lena would much rather have Sveta on the Fed Cup team than USharapova.

Re: Elena vs. Svetlana on December 15th in Zaragoza!

Lena has indicated in more recent interviews that she has a pleasant relationship with Sveta. I don't think they are best buds, but whatever bad blood there was between the two (and at one point ED made it clear there was) has been resolved.

I don't know how they worked things out, but apparently they did.
