What made you become a fan of Elena?

I first saw her at the 3d round of the 1999 Australian Open. She was up against Martina Hingis and eventually lost 3 and 2. During a particular point towards the middle of the match, Elena hit a ball long and she shrieked (literally). She immediately covered her mouth with her hand and looked a bit shocked and embarassed by it. The whole stadium loved it anyway. So did I.

I had all over my mind after watching the match. Elena seemed very sweet and somewhat "innocent". She's the perfect antidote to all the bitchiness that goes on in tour.

What about you guys? How, when and why did you Elena?

I love her sweetness too and her inteligence.
I also happen to hate serve dominated tennis 15-0 30-0 etc etc so Lena's game is
just my cup of tea! Perhaps a few less Dfs would be nice though!!
She is also the most naturally beautiful girl on court and is an enigma ,she looks so
sweet and innocent and shy,yet has the heart of a lion and her body is so strong ,I'm
a bloke and wish I was that strong, you kinda forget she's almost 6ft tall .
She just carries herself so well and I have never seen her moan and complain she is just a fantastic girl and I love her to bits and her smile brightens my day!!
There thats me!!

Hmm. I believe Elena would much prefer having a serve-dominated game just so she can breath easier from any DF nightmares.

I get the impression that Elena's a bit introverted. But that is what I like about her - attention and sponsorship publicity plays second fiddle to her tennis career.

I became a fan of her in 1999 when she was playing Davenport in the State Farm tournament, I think. I was just super impressed with her guts to attack every ball that Davenport hit. And Davenport didn't seem to overpower Elena at all. That's when I first started noticing her. Not long after that, she became my favorite player!

I became fan of her in 2000. The year where I decided to watch tennis on TV again. It was one of the first player I saw and she impressed me with her style of play because she has a strong game without having a bodybulder's body.
Now, i saw a lot of players and like several of them but Elena is always in my favorite players.

Year 2000, saw her semi against Lindsay and thought she was good. Then I heard she won the silver medal, but it wasn't til the YEC at that year in the 1st round when she defeated Lindsay that I REALLY REALLY likder her. She was hitting the ball so hard and so accurately and saved a MP too.

Since then I've been a fan of her beauty, her game and her personality. She really is a great combination on court. I hope she can do wonders this week!!!

I like her because she seems so nice, a little shy, but feisty. I admire her athletism and grace (except when she serves!).

I like rooting for her because she's good enough to compete, but not so good that I feel like I'm jumping on a bandwagon (like a lot of fans of a certain other tall, blonde Russian). Speaking of which, 5'11' and blonde is a good thing.

And last, but certainly not least, Elena may just have the most shapely posterier on the planet.

well i became Lena's fan back in '98, when she was becoming pro, i also followed her when she was a junior, at that time she already played wonderfully great, first time i saw her as junior, was when i was following a junior-tournament in '96 or '97, when i saw her score and profile i was immediately, attached of her, and when i had heard a couple of match report on the site of the tournament i was immediately attached of her. I couldn't find her anywhere in junior tournaments in '98 so i thought, how strange, so when i found out her in pro tournaments, i became an even bigger fan of her ( i like it so much the she became pro )
At that time a was quite a young fan of Lena, i was only 15, (i had also favs at that time, the first time i saw a tennis match was when i was 9 or 10 since then i'm a big tennis fan) i felt in love with her positive attitude and her game, and offcourse cuz she is beautiful!!

Elena Dementieva Forever!

me became Lena's fan in 2002...damn late
The first time me saw Lena was USO when she played doubles QFs with Janette..
Against Meg/Kim...
Actually..me didn't intend to see Lena..
Buttttttt me read her name wrong...

me thought.."OMG..my fave is gonna play"
How the hell she is playing doubles..
Ok...it's good anyway..cos' I wanted to see my fave..

When all players came out..
I thought "where the hell is Lindsay?!?!"
And why this pretty girl played with Linds' name?
OMG OMG...it's not Davenport...:retard:
It's "dementieva"

Butttttttttttttt I continued to see the match..
and I liked Lena a lottttttttttttttttttttttttttt
Then...I followed Lena's results which were not that good..
But Lena made it at AI 2003 beating my other fave...
But I was damn happy...
I love Lena more and more..

I'm damn proud to be a Lena fan..

"Logan Tom" is the best!!!

Hehehe, funny stuff. But Davenport and Dementieva?? LOL!!!!

She has done wonders this week, but I want to see her win two more singles matches. And I really believe she can do this!

Good luck Elena!!!

What about you guys? How, when and why did you Elena?
I first saw Lena D at exactly the same time, at the AO 1999, and Ive been a fan ever since
I remember that match well - she was really belting the cover of the ball.
..and youre right about her being really sweet and innocent.
At the time I saved a few pictures from that match but I they are on my other computer, one day ill dig them up.
