She's one of my favorite doubles players, too bad. Good luck

(and what a run she had at the Rogers Cup in 2006!)

Lena won her 1st singles title October 17, 1993, 15 years ago yesterday

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Her game wasn't one of the greatest but her personality definitely was.

Good luck for the rest Lena L.

Re: Elena Likhovtseva. End of Career?

I was annoyed not to see her on the Olympics entry list when she was convinced to keep playing to participate in them. She was originally planning to retire last year but did win a round at the US Open two months ago. I will be sad to see her go, I always liked watching her play, especially in doubles.

Re: Elena Likhovtseva. End of Career?

yes, she's but such a professional competitor over the years. i still remember her upsetting pierce at the 1996 Australian Open IIRC. she's was borderline top-10 at several points in her career and stellar in doubles.

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.

Sad way to go, no farewell tournament, nothing.


Even though I could have easily hated her the year Silvia retired I couldnt because she has a lovely game especially on grass and was one of the nicest players I have ever met.

I hope she has the child she wanted very soon!!

When she was fighting really hard she was able to inspire me somehow! she had many nice matches... Sad to see her go so quietly.
