ASB Classic

Hey guys,

Unfortunately she lost, but there are new photos of Lena from the ASB Classic over at Getty Images. Just search for "Daniilidou" or click on "Sport" and scroll down to "NZL: ASB Classic - Day One".

Also, there's a video clip from TVNZ. Copy and paste this URL directly into your Windows Media Player (in case it doesn't work from your browser): http://images.tvnz.co.nz/tvnz_video/...20106_128k.asx

New nose ring?!?!?

Enjoy!

hey, thenks for the info about pics on Getty but I can't get the video to work either way

I could see on the photos at Getty that she's wearing a nose stud...I guess that's new.

You should have an option in WMP to "Open URL" under FILE. Hope that helps.

Eleni was using a Wilson racket for the match - am I right in thinking she was using Yonex last year?

Thanks, I managed to see the match highlights this time. Unfortunately I couldn't get a great feel for the match from Daniilidou perspective as I felt that the highlights only showed Eleni's errors.

Seemed she's making a lot of errors on the backhand slice. Eleni appears to be using the backhand slice a lot, even when she's on the offensive, perhpas she should try and hit a few more top spin backhands because given the chance, it's a good one! Having said that, I haven't seen the whole match and the highlights were edited so most of the points shown were Eleni errors.

At one point I thought to myself, "oo, the serve's better" but then when she was under pressure the old serve came back where she's not quite sure what to do with her feet...she still has 12 months to be implementing the new changes fully

Hopefully, Eurosport will show her in action at Sydney!

In other news, Eleni and Jasmin went down in their first round doubles match, 6-3, 7-6 (4).

Still, they are a new team and hopefully they will develop.

Roll on Sydney.....I persum that's where Eleni is headed next.
