Re: Elena Dementieva Fans Club Vol 8
Long time no see.
I think its brilliant that even in retirement, Elena's fanclub is still going strong.
The past year has been a strange one for me as a tennis fan. Without Lena it just is not the same. I went to Wimbledon but without the prospect of seeing her play, it just wasn't the same.
This year I have started rooting for Petra. She's obviously not in the same league as my all time favourite but I like her game and personality. She's modest, hard working and erratic as hell. Not as erratic as Lena was but still.
"And thanks to all the people around the world for supporting me, and my fan club, I could feel your support no matter where I was in the world. Thank you for your devotion. Most importantly, thanks to my family, especially my mom. You've been very supportive, encouraging, inspiring... you were always there for me. It was a long way and we did it together. I love you mom. It's so emotional. It's so hard to say goodbye. I'm going to miss you so much"
