Hopefully the tournament will be there for more years to come... because its a fantastic tournament on a fantastic place

I would advise you bruce if you are ever in europe.. visit the alps
Thanks. My mom went there with my stepfather so I've heard a good testimony. Never got to see Elena play live but the Alps trip might be do-able

Re: Elena Dementieva Fans Club Vol 8

I skied in Bad Gastein years ago. It's a very pretty place.
Hey Mr. Goose, Eugenie Bouchard is not arrogant at all. She is a very confident young lady who has her eye on the top of womens tennis.
If you want arrogant try Maria Sharapova. After she beat Bouchard at the French she called Bouchard my opponent instead of calling her by her name.
Sharapova is as obnoxious as one can get!

Maybe you're right, Fred. I don't ever wanna be one of those spineless people who are too scared to admit when they made a mistake, and I sort of backtracked on Bouchard in an earlier post. At first, she certainly came off as cold, arrogant and aloof, but she has shown some humility in some recent interviews, so my first impressions may have been wrong.

She definitely has lots more potential than Max's 'Jo-La', who was serving for the match today with ardent support from her home fans...then Larson-ed the match away, as usual. However, Bouchard is still no more than a makeshift stopgap for Elena's absence, and she has a long way to go before she can fill the BGO's tennis shoes

Re: Elena Dementieva Fans Club Vol 8

You forget she's only 20 years old. Lots of growning up ahead for Genie.
Plus the WTA is already pushing her to the forefront of womens tennis.
She has made the semi's of all three majors this year which nobody else has done.
I think she is well grounded by her family and I don't think success will go to her head.
At least I hope not!

Well, you see that Cap'n Ross wants to sell the Crown Jewels so that we'll have funds to build an SS Bouchard and SS Lisicki, too. The biggest problem with building a boat for Lis-quit-cki is that, like the player, it would be too fragile. It would spring huge leaks and start to sink every time that it collided with a school of plankton

But you could be absolutely right about abundant future success for Bouchard, and she impressed me with her deeds at the year's first three Slams. However, it's not Elena's ON-court success that makes her stand out from other players, it's who she is as a PERSON. So far, Clijsters has been the only one I've seen who was/is in Elena's class

Re: Elena Dementieva Fans Club Vol 8

Who is this not-Lena you keep wasting your virtual breath on?

I want to know if Baby Veronika can sit up yet. Or maybe she's just discovering her feet. It's been so long I can't remember what infants are like except in a very general sense.

And of course Baby Veronika is no doubt a prodigy, and well ahead of any normal developmental stages anyway.

Okay, NOW you're making sense to me, Max. Baby Veronika is definitely the hope of the WTA for the 2030s and 2040s decades...FAR better than anyone from the Swedish Fed Cup team

Well, to be fair, Jo-La will be my age in 2040.

I wonder who yells at Max if he doesn't do his share of changing nappies--Lena or Mommy Vera?

Re: Elena Dementieva Fans Club Vol 8

Maca, a female poster told me that it was just over 10 years ago when Elena first started chatting about her new bf with her buddies at RG 2004.....I hope that the fresh new bloom of love didn't leave her distracted for that final
