Re: Elena Dementieva Fans Club Vol 8

Quite amazing to think its almost 12 months since Lena retired and here we all still are, her fanclub is still busier than a lot of the active players

Like I said months ago, Lena didn't fall off the planet when she retired, she's very much still here and we still get some info and pics etc from time to time.

Let's keep up the good work and well done guys and gals, proud of you all, let's continue to make this thread sit near the top , Lena rules forever, on and off the court.

Captain of the all new SS Dementieva


Once a Lena fan always a Lena fan

Re: Elena Dementieva Fans Club Vol 8

Oh, Lena is amazing She's giggling so much, the guy was telling a joke about his car/driving experience, but I didn't get it and also joked about Maxim, but I didn't get that either . We definitely need a native speaker to help us with translations of the program.

It still feels surreal that we will have regular Lena videos!

everytime I see Lena speaking in Russian I say to myself: YOU HAVE TO LEARN RUSSIAN, NOW! well, that's not gonna happen soon so I have to save all these videos for that day
I think I better look for a Russian boyfriend and then I convince him to translate this for me

Re: Elena Dementieva Fans Club Vol 8

Google translate + my corrections of the link itzhak posted:
http://www.sovsport.ru/gazeta/article-item/483563

- Elena, why did you decide to go into sports journalism and didn’t become, for example, a coach or a manager?
- I'm in my third year at the Philology Faculty of Moscow State Pedagogical University, formerly named after Lenin. My profile is journalism. But I've never thought that I would immediately have my own program.
- Was it your idea?
- No, I got a call from CHL, was offered to try. I thought, why not.
- What about the name "Kitchen"?
- I’ve give hundreds of interviews during my career and still felt a bit reserved/shy whoever I talked to. That’s why I set myself the task of talking with hockey players in an informal atmosphere, so that they can open up. I wanted to discuss not only hockey, but everything else - hobbies, personal life, how the guys spend their free time.
- Did you succeed?
- Unfortunately, it not always possible for a guest to open up. After all, I meet some hockey players just a few minutes before filming. And when we’re on air, I do not know what kind of person sits in front of me, what approach is necessary, whether he is talkative or reserved/shy. You have to experiment on the moment. But you see, Denis Tolpeko, who was my guest today, turned out to be a very jolly and open guy. I almost did not have to ask him guiding questions. He gladly told funny stories, different hockey stories.
- Do you have a strict script?
- I have room for improvisation, which means I can ask questions that pop up during the conversation and ask about what's interesting to me. It’s not just reading a piece of paper and blindly following the script. Or even worse, being a beautiful doll and just smiling and opening my mouth.
- Isn’t it unpleasant that the program is just 13 minutes, but shooting takes hours?
- That's how TV works! I remember when I was a player; a very short, 30-second TV commercial sometimes couldn’t be completed in one day! I had come into the studio on the next day, shoot hundreds of takes. But if you want to do something well, you need patience.
- Is the program going to be on air on CHL-TV once a week the whole season?
- So far, I do not know. How can you make long term plans when even the first edition isn’t cut. But, of course, I would like to present the program as long as possible.
- Are you more tired than after a workout?
- They shouldn’t even be compared! After a professional sporting career everything else in life seem so easy - and Elena charmingly laughs – But still, I miss tennis. I’m used to training, playing, working a lot since my childhood.
- Is it easier now?
- What, no, I don’t have a single minute free time. It appears to me that all my errands were only waiting and just piled up on me when I retired.

Re: Elena Dementieva Fans Club Vol 8

I just remembered that some of you find it strange that the program is named “Kitchen”. In Bulgarian (and apparently in Russian) there is a phrase (and derivatives of it) that literally says “news from the kitchen” and means inside information. So the name of Lena’s show makes perfect sense in Russian .


The above interview is accompanied by a descriptive article:
http://www.sovsport.ru/gazeta/article-item/483546

“Do you love hockey like I do? If so, then I'll introduce you to the players of the CHL. My name is Elena Dementieva.” No, you heard right. That's how every Thursday morning the program "Kitchen" on CHL-TV will begin.

One can not immediately figure out who is the protagonist of the program - the guests, well-known hockey players, or the presenter - Olympic champion, the famous tennis player in the past Elena Dementieva. A correspondent of "Soviet Sport" went on the shooting of the pilot episode of the program and once again was convinced of the truth of the proverb "If someone is talented, he is talented in everything."

"Silence on the set! Recording! "- Director's sharp voice broke off in a flash all the whispering in the hall of one of Moscow’s restaurants, which was chosen to film. But the filming space is a tiny cubicle. All of the remaining space is packed with high-tech equipment: HD-cameras, fancy sound panels, spotlights. The impression it’s not TV show shoot, but a movie one.
(skipped irrelevant sentences)
A few seconds prior to recording, Elena’s hairdo is fixed, apply hairspray on the golden curls, put makeup. But Dementieva looks good even without it. She's in great shape.
- Why Vyacheslav Kozlov was not invited? – she complains.
Turns out, Kozlov - a good family friend of Dementieva. When Elena's husband Maxim Afinogenov played in the NHL for Atlanta, Kozlov was his teammate. He invited Maxim and Lena a couple of times to visit his home. They became friendly families. Elena then even helped Kozlov’s son play tennis.
Finally, Elena Dementieva and her guest - "Dynamo" forward Denis Tolpeko sits in the chair. The presenter is in a chic gray dress, Denis raises an eyebrow: "Lena, it looks great on you!"
Lena is very serious about their work. She picks up clothes and shoes, finds out what color the studio is, so that all is in harmony.

A conversation begins, and indeed it’s a home feeling. It’s clear right away why the program was called "Kitchen". It is very cozy in the studio - the walls in pastel colours, soft chairs with cushions, tea and fruits on the table, above it - wicker lampshades. Denis says what cakes his mother bakes for every goal. Elena suddenly makes a sharp turn in the conversation:
- Dennis, people say that in America you’re called a Russian Playboy. Why didn’t you come back with a bride?
Tolpeko rushes thoughts in his mind for a moment and gives a painfully familiar answer: "No I'm not a playboy, no time for fun, we play every other day." But Lena is not fooled: "Your defense doesn’t hold up, Denis", - she smiles slyly. But extorting an answer from the interlocutor isn’t working. Seeing that the hockey player is not in the mood to talk about his personal life, Dementieva instantly changed the subject.

Shooting is in its third hour and it's time to ask for a timeout. But even for a five-minute break, Lena has no time to drink water. Again, makeup, hair ... the hairdo is a very different and this will irritate the viewer. "We'll have to reshoot the program" - the director gives a harsh verdict.
- Really? – Dementieva is horrified. - We just finished up, it was an intimate conversation. It will not be the same if Denis has to retell.
As a result, the presenter takes a willful decision: go back into the dressing room and ask to have her hair done as before.
Lena tries to be as relaxed as possible. There are no worn-out cliches in her questions. "Denis, we're both Muscovites. When will our capital’s club win the Gagarin Cup? "- She turns the conversation to hockey topic. Tolpeko just shrugs: "We will do everything to this year. And the champion will be only "Dynamo"! "

But it's still hard to me not to see her in yonex clothes
perhaps a visor on the set will do, right? (for the spotlights )
