Re: Elena Baltacha has died
This is indeed very tragic and shocking to me. I had read that she was ill but I did not expect it to happen so quickly. When I read articles about her I am AMAZED that this woman achieved a top 50 ranking and won a singles title despite being diagnosed with a liver disease at age 19 and having suffered multiple injuries. To achieve that level of success in tennis with those cards stacked against you is beyond admirable. I hope her friends and family know how many people are grieving alongside them.
