Silly question but I'd like to know... :)

I am watching Elena's final against Davenport here and I am realizing how pretty she is. What's the essential difference between her and Anna? Why is Anna getting all the attention? Doesn't seem to be a logical reason? They are both gorgeous, talented, etc...
Does Elena have a bf? Did she ever have one? There seems to be so little known about her private life...

I am just curious about her...

And I really hope that in an hour or so we have one more beautiful blonde Russian WITH a WTA-title

GO ELENA!

JUSTINE H-H: 39 WTA-titles and counting...!


Good luck to K-lina Sprem, Venus, Tati Golovin, Daniela, and Lena D

Yeah Elena did (maybe still does) have a boyfriend, but the main difference between her and Anna (apart from the title) is that Anna publicises herself and Elena doesn't. Not internationally anyway. The only difference is public perception which is dictated by media coverage.

When asked in Zurich last year if she had a boyfriend, she blushed a lot before answering "No, I haven't right now".

When we were younger, if I lost to her I wouldn't talk to her for a couple of days, but now I play against Russian players almost every week, so I'm kind of used to it. (Elena on Myskina)

I think the reason Anna is so popular is the "annatude".
Guys see her as rich and famous, and they feel inferior. It's a submissive thing.
Anna acts like she's too good for them, and it plays into their fantasies.
There are so many players who would look great with a professional photographer, and lighting, etc.
But once you get famous as a sex symbol, all these guys know they can't have you, and the fantasy just builds, imo.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

You're right, Goldenlox,

And Elena is so shy and discreet that she does not try to appear on every magazine cover...
