Tribute to Boris Yeltsin

Just a nice pic as a tribute to the Late Boris Yeltsin, who did a lot to promote tennis in his country...



RIP

Captain of the all new SS Dementieva

Re: Tribute to Boris Yeltsin

Yeltsin left Russia in ruins
I would think his alleged support of tennis would not be so important in that case.

And how did he support tennis so much? by sitting in the benches of the Kremlin cup?

I am unsure of the details of his support for Russian tennis, but I know that even with his mere presence at Fed Cup ties, Davis Cup ties and at Moscow, he made a difference.

It's terrible and shocking to me that he is dead, at just 76. God rest his soul.

I agree, Yeltsin was an alcholic who ran Russia into the ground in his latter years. He embarresed Russia and himself many times and had no respect from this pairs.

Inspite of this tho, RIP.

Don't make me cry - it's hard enough as it is! If you want to abuse a dead man who had problems and an exceedingly difficult job, please go somewhere else
