We all know Elena is inconsistent, but she's more than just that.
It's almost like she's two different people. I call them "Iron Maiden" Elena and "Princess" Elena.
Iron Maiden Elena is the tough-as-nails, never-say-die fighter who comes back 2-5 down against one of the best players in the world, who never says die. The girl who, when it goes to a third set you can just look at her and know she's going to pull it out.
Princess Elena is passive, withdrawn, looking like she's waiting for her knight in shining armor to come rescue her.
Even though she's not on TV that often, I almost feel like I can start to tell which Lena has shown up for a given match based on her body language during the first few points.
Has anyone else noticed this contrast? What do you think needs to be done to get more of the Iron Maiden and less of the passive Princess? Is she just plain schitzo?
I'd love to hear what other Lena fans have to say on the topic.
Pass the duct tape and super glue. Lena's done broke my heart one last time.
