Smile Send Corina a Welcome Back message!

I decided to start this thread to give posters a chance to send a message to Corina, who will be playing her first WTA tournament next week at the Acura Classic. I will print the pages out and give them to her, hopefully at the beginning of the week so it will encourage her She is such an inspiration, let her know how glad you are to have her back and how much she was missed.

Corina,

I was so devastated when I heard of your illness. It really put life into perspective for me, as I'm sure it did for a lot of people. I sent you a card to encourage you while in the hospital and imagine my surprise to get a card back from YOU! What an incredible gesture in the midst of your illness. I am soooo happy first that you are healthy, but also that you are back on the tour. Good luck in your return to the tour, but mostly I pray for continued good health and a complete recovery.

Corina,
You are, and have been, one of my all-time favourite tennis players. But even more than that, I've admired your strength and determination to fight your demons and return stronger than ever before. Your story has been an inspiration to me and I wish you all the best in your return to the tour.

Can't wait to see your backhand on the court, by the way

A true fan... MiKe C.

Corina,

I can't believe what you've done. I can't believe the enormous strenght you've shown troughout your illness. Never giving up! You're truly the comeback of the year! You've shown to us that if there is a chance you must give it a go and I will always remember your strenght to carry on. You're truly an example for real professional tennis. I admire you and hope you'll have fun on the courts again with Lindsay!

With love, Kristof

No you can’t help it if you have been tempted
By fruit hanging ripe on the tree
And I feel useless
Don’t care what the truth is
You will be here come the day

Corina,

I'm so happy you come back to tour!! You know, I was so upset with the illness you had. Here in Belgium there's an association that collect money for the research about leukemia. It's called "Televie" (TVlife in english!!). All the Belgians are involved in it!!! I'm so happy that you'll play again!!! I miss you!!!! Now, let win some more Grand Slam with Lindsay and win some more titles (why not a Grand Slam in singles, to stop the williams' domination LOL). But, for me, the biggest win of your career will be your win over the illness!! That's the most important one!!!

Come back stronger than you were!!!
