Elena lost, again. That's her semis chances gone, barring withdrawals. It has not been a kind tournament for our Elena. Poor draw, and even poorer form... but in her defence, it has been a long season. So, some tears for Elena's final tournament of the year.
To the bright news. We still love her, no matter the scores, no matter her form. As well as being a long year, it has, overall, been a good year for Elena, a career high year ending ranking of 5 (Is it possible for Maria to pass her? I don't think so, but I'm not sure) We also know she'll work hard on the serve, come back a newer, and better player, and go to Australia with minimal points to defend.
So, here's to the new year, in which we have much to look forward to (now where is the beer smiley?!)
P.S I know it's only October, but it's the end of the year in regards to Elena playing tennis, which is good enough for me
