do you know that lena doesn`t like this alyona nickname. who invented this bullshit? but, anyway i just want to tell you that she sometimes takes a look at this forum. best wishes, and thank you for supporting her.
Anywho I watched her mixed doubles match yesterday with Sarge, and they played great. Elena was hitting the ball cleanly, and her serve was also better from the last time I saw her (Sydney '04 QF).
The match was played in great spirits, with all four players laughing and joking around. Then after the match I went to get her autograph, and this moron said (after he had gotten her autograph) ''can I have your number as well?''. Well Elena just gave him a foul look and walked off and refused to sign anymore autographs
Thanks for the report Kimmie's_Boy . It's indeed good that Elena won even in the mixed doubles cuz she will get her confidence back somehow. I hope she keeps improving her serve, so that it will pay her off in next tournaments.
BTW, that guy was a bit rude to Elena . He might be joking, but I don't think so. He got Elena's autograph, but he made others not get it. Shame on him .
