That being said, Lena still looks lovely as ever!
Ross and his report on the Lisicki match
Mikey, if I may offer a different, admittedly biased, perspective, ugliness allows us to appreciate the contrast of the beautiful things in this world even more(that can be standard, aesthetic ugliness or actions that are figuratively ugly,etc.). I don't consider Marion ugly, per se(more like normal-looking, with luscious lips and a nice smile), but Elena's beauty stands out even more when she's with someone whose looks have provoked Cap'n Ross to clash with the mods, right? Part of what makes the BGO special is that so few are like she is.

As for Marion's triumph, well, think of it in Macbeth terms where a faithful soldier-ette gets to be queen for a day...only without scheming and murdering the reigning monarch. She doesn't have nearly as many God-given physical gifts as so many underachieving players who were born with everything and have just pissed it away, so let her have her moment in the sun, Mikey.She has worked hard to get where she is, so she deserves that token Slam.

As for Elena's coaching, it would be awesome if she could lead one of her daughters--depending on how many she has and whether they grow to like tennis or not--to Slam glory someday. If one of the junior Elenas ever does that and reaches #1 to boot, then maybe we'll persuade Ross(though Lena is much MORE persuasive) to..........okay, I promised not to mention that anymore

Congrats on Number Three, Kim! We need more of you in this world

Re: Elena Dementieva Fans Club Vol 8

Lena has always, from the very earliest days of her career, said nothing means more to her than Olympic gold.

She has a gold and a silver. If she is happy, then I am happy for her, just as I am happy for my doubles specialists favorites Vania and Andi when they win their slams in doubles.

Part of what makes Lena so likeable is her cussed way of defining success her way, not someone else's. She made Olympic history as the first Russian gold medalist in tennis, and the first person to ever medal twice in Olympic singles. The haters are not worthy to lick one of Patrick or Rocky's turds from the soles of her most tattered and worn out sneakers.

This could be written for anyone. I'm the sour grapes here, but it just feels weird, abnormal and bittersweet (and I like Bartoli's game and quirkiness).

Re: Elena Dementieva Fans Club Vol 8

Well, it's not my place to tell anyone how to feel, but it's true of both sports AND life in general that acts of heroism often involve ordinary people who are given the chance to do extraordinary deeds partly due to a confluence of circumstances(others might use words like 'destiny', 'luck' or 'divine will'). Though I'm not a fan of hers, per se, I thought that it was very inspiring when Stosur overcame her tendency to choke in big matches by beating Referee Killer(RK) in the 2011 USO final, even though it was certainly a weird, abnormal result.

As for 'bittersweet', IMO Elena's Beijing 2008 triumph was even more impressive than Marion's recent crown, and it's often simplistic reasoning skills that lead someone to underestimate Elena's Gold as being somehow less than a Slam. The fact that the Olympics have six rounds instead of seven is kind of a stupid excuse because top seeds like Elena would normally get a cupcake opponent in the 1st round of a traditional Slam. Instead, every single one of Elena's six opponents had won at least one singles title in her career, and it's VERY rare that someone would face such a draw en route to a Slam final. The Olympics feature the best from every country, so the overall quality level is much higher than you'd find amongst the last 64 players who commence the 2nd round of a Slam, and Elena's draw wasn't really ANY easier by virtue of not facing some high-school-aged WC or qualifier in the 1st round to give her seven victims instead of six. If you go back to the 'dinosaur era', the very top seeds sometimes got byes for the 1st rounds of Slams so those eventual champions, too, beat 'only' six players. What's most compelling is that Elena defeated Serena on her favorite surface and, what's more, beat her in international competition where SW has almost NEVER lost if you check the Fed Cup records. Despite RK's common post-match whining that she gave the match away by playing poorly, Elena just TOOK the match from her with superior play, according to impartial observers. As Max posted, that Gold was her #1 tennis dream and she fulfilled it

Finally, I'll echo what Max posted about Elena living on her terms: I've read that pornography was huge in Russia, and there's no doubt in my mind that Elena has been offered VERY generous sums of money to pose for sleazy photoshoots for some magazine or another. Even if it wasn't always porno, per se, there were surely Russian versions of FHM and the like who wanted her to do push-the-envelope stuff that is typical of Kournikova and others. No question that Elena could've seriously fattened her wallet with such pics...but that's not who she is and, quite frankly, that's just one more reason why she's so beautiful in the eyes of so many

Congrats on Number Three, Kim! We need more of you in this world

Re: Elena Dementieva Fans Club Vol 8

Lena may be a model of chasteness and purity, but just thinking of her is enough to undo any mere mortal.

Perfectly stated, Max. We have a series of low-budget, mostly low-quality films starring one of our former masked luchadores, the late El Santo, such as 'El Santo and the Vengeance of the Vampire Women.' Even in one of THOSE wacky flicks, I couldn't picture Elena making herself cheap and easy by being the gf of some sleaze like, say, Verdasco. Even when you put aside the HUGE gulf in intellect and the fact that, after almost a decade on tour, FV speaks English about as well as a Mexican freight hauler, Elena just couldn't live with herself in such a shameful role. I remember when a hockey reporter tried to pry with her hubby a few years back(only about a year before the wedding, actually), and he immediately shut the question down by explaining that he did NOT discuss the BGO with the public.It was clearly utter respect from him...as you'd expect from any man who'd met Elena

Re: Elena Dementieva Fans Club Vol 8

I find our lack of faith disturbing.

Lena must have done something sweet, kind and adorable in the last week and we have failed to uncover and celebrate her awesomeness.

Well, reading your post in my inbox reminded me of her.......and that brought a contented smile to my face. Does that count??

Re: Elena Dementieva Fans Club Vol 8

I just found this:

Viktoria Kotova: "Вчера видела Александра Олежко,немного пообщалась с ним , он очаровательный еще лучше чем по телевизору! Завтра сьемка, очень волнуюсь. В жюри будет Анастасия Заваратнюк,тенессистка Елена Дементьева, Гузеева ведущая программы " Давай поженимся" и т.д"

and with a little help of google:

"Yesterday saw Alexander Olezhki a little talk with him, he's charming even better than on TV! Tomorrow filming, very worried. The jury will be Anastasia Zavaratnyuk, tenessistka Elena Dementieva , Guzeyeva host of "Let's get married", etc."

Re: Elena Dementieva Fans Club Vol 8

Ok, so this Aleksandr Oleshko is the presenter of a show called "A minute of fame" (Минута Славы, the Russian version of Xcountry's got talent) and apparently Lena will be a jury in it. They're filming today, who knows when exactly this episode will be broadcast, probably some time in the autumn TV season.

Re: Elena Dementieva Fans Club Vol 8

I wonder.....Will sweet Elena be candid enough to say it for those contestants who really DON'T have any noticeable talent?
