Re: Elena Baltacha has died

I'm beside myself that I found this out right now... Elena, may you rest in eternal peace.

My thoughts are with her family at this time, I only pray they can find some semblance of strength. RIP

Re: Elena Baltacha has died

Just wow. No words. RIP Elena. All the best to her friends and relatives She really didn't deserve it.

To all the people who now have her avatar. JUST MAKE IT LONGER THAN A WEEK and do it because you really care, and not just to be cool on a fucking online community.

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.

Re: Elena Baltacha has died

Have to admit I was quite surprised when I heard she had died. Such is life.

Re: Elena Baltacha has died

How terribly sad for all those who knew and admired her. She was a great ambassador for British tennis.

Terrible news. I'm so sad. I'm close to her family. It's incredible how nothing couldn't be done
