Elena IN Topspin 2?

I remember we had a thread about Elena not being on the list of players featuring in Topspin 2.

But there is a Top Spin 2 article and pics posted in GM, and Elena is in one of the pics. Anyone have a clue what's going on?

Could she be a secret/hidden character?

Pfft, Smash Court Tennis Pro Tournament 2 for PS2 rules all the way!
Elena was the first player I created. Unfortunately, back then, I had no idea what the various skills stood for.

E.g.: 'meet' Had no idea what that was about. Now I know it enables you to hit sharp angles.

My ignorance resulted in the stats not being completely adequate. Her groundstrokes are not really that big, she hits 180km/h serves ( ), barely double faults ( ), but she does have great stats for volley and slice and dash.
But what do I care! It's Lena!

Thank you, Elena

Cool.... so no one has any explaination as to why she is in the picture but not on the player list?

Anyway, as if Smash court is any good. It doesn't have Elena.

Maybe she was a late add or they just forgot to name her. Game development goes through sooooooo many changes before the end product comes out.

The woods are hopeless. Don't waste your time, they will be destroyed. So will the marsh. It is a losing game mankind has played for more than a century. Sadness is what you are, do not deny it. The universe is a lonely place, a painful place. This is what we can share between us, period.

Well, you can always try to track down an old copy of WTA Tennis like I have.

Sure, it's nearly unplayable and the graphics, while decent are badly dated.

BUT . . .

it has Lena.

In fact, it has Lena with baaaaaaaaannnnnngggggs . . .

Well, I'm little disapointed with graphics - it's not great

Compared to what you see in other games you're right, in some sports games you can actually see the players sweat! They look REALLY real. Here it just looks like video game Lena.
