I used to mock Serena for how she pretends to be such a holy-and-religious J.W. who doesn't celebrate b-days--and yet she'll threaten to murder a lineswoman for looking at her the wrong way......but I've gotten used to it now so it wouldn't bother me at all if she won RG again.What DOES bother me,just a little, is that Elena retired from tennis under the premise of her first foray into motherhood......and she hasn't re-produced her superior DNA to make any Lena Jrs. as of yet

Re: The SS Dementieva, New Horizons

Well, 'little Elena' won her 2nd career singles title today, and her first Premier, on the heels of a Grand Slam doubles crown in Paris. I never heard much from "T.O.E." back when our BGO Elena was playing, but at least one of the posters here was a huge fan, and pretty much everyone spoke well of Elena V. What really struck me these last couple days was how charming, natural and relaxed she sounded in her post-match comments, in stark contrast with her 1st-round victim who is one of the phoniest, almost puke-worthy Gal Smileys in women's sports history.'Li'l Elena' did everyone a favor by taking out that garbage so early in the tourney.

Anyway, it made me nostalgic to see an Elena doing well on the WTA circuit again.Even if it wasn't our BGO, it was someone in good standing with her and the SSD staff, and that brought back even more memories of our unforgettable Queen

Re: The SS Dementieva, New Horizons

No outstanding, unresolved conflict between Elena and our current Wimby champion...right??

Thanks for the input, Mikey; I think that it normally takes a lot more than that for our BGO to hold a grudge against another player.

During Elena's days as an active player, Cap'n Ross would frequently make comments about gals whose weight he considered excessive, so I was sort of expecting some subtle, non-bannable insult about our Wimby champion....Then again, I imagine that Cap'n is quite pleased that Jehovah's Referee Killer Witness didn't win at SW19 again, so maybe everything's all right

Re: The SS Dementieva, New Horizons

Welllll, Bartoli could never be acused of having Elenas Magnificent Physique but then who can...

Not aware of any bad blood between the two of them.

Was hoping we coulda had Lisicki over on board as the Champ as she did so well beating the world number one and number 4 plus other good players on the way to the final whereas Bartoli just had to eat cake and stay in there, but alas, the blondie simply collapsed like an Ikea wardbrobe under the pressure...... all sounds quite familiar don't it!!

Anyways Bartolis ok.... good to see a new winner...

Lisicki is lovely on the outside but there's a real phony, painted-on quality to her smile. Calling her "German Ana I." would probably sum it up best

For personal reasons, I'm glad that Marion hasn't drawn your ire at all and, by the way, her pre-eminence in my sig is only temporary.I'll move Elena back to the headline in a couple weeks when we have legit tourneys again....Which reminds me of another reason why it's good that Marion doesn't provoke the same sentiments in you that Sveta has brought about.It was a bit uncomfortable for us to explain your unscheduled, temporary absence to a perturbed Lena during one of her more demanding moods

Re: The SS Dementieva, New Horizons

Activity's been a little light on board lately; I hope that the food service provider hasn't been taking an extended vacation...you know, just in case Elena starts getting a bit demanding

....And yet Elena's always so lovely, feminine and graceful whenever she's smacking Mikey around, isn't she?

Re: The SS Dementieva, New Horizons

As from tomorrow will be on my usual sabbatical to the You Ess so, everyone needs to behave, haven't chosen a tempory captain, you can choose amongst yourselves.

Just make sure Lena doesn't wreck everything...

I echo the sentiments but, since you're here, maybe YOU should be temporary Cap this year. As you are essential personnel, Elena might be far less inclined to inflict damage upon you than she would be with many others
