Re: Birmingham

Smashing win and an impressive start into the grasscourt season - time to turn things around from anger to shining results.

Every time I crawl past your door, I been wishing I was somebody else instead.

Daniilidou v Granville

Eleni always amazes me, some of the shots she was coming up with, particularly off the backhand, were total junk, sort of thing you see from a 10 year old - however it was very effective and Laura made a fair few errors of them. Other times her shots were the kind that reminded you how she was once in the top 15. She's a bit slow at times and can be seem a bit like she can't be bothered, but generally she showed lots of variety and touch. Laura looked tired.

Re: Birmingham

Eleni just won the first set 6-4 Pameeeeee!!!!!


Oh she updated her site today from Birmingham.Here is what she wrote:

Hi guys!! I will update you short...I am since Saturday here in Birmingham. I had 2 days of great practice with my coach. We tried to play a lot of points!!! It feels so good to be back on grass even if the surface is not the best here. We had a lot of bad bounces and a lot of smiles and fun!
My first round match against Laura was great. I started very good with a break and after I could hold my serve...in the second set she raised up her level and it was a very tough and close set. I was 5/3 and 3 set points down. I could come back and finish the match in the tie-break. I was moving very good and with the support of my coach and my doubles partner, I could make it happen in two sets and save some energy for today. Next match is against Dellacqua around 3pm. I'm looking forward. She's a good player on grass. Cannot wait to be back on court!
Press your thumbs!
Your ELENIIIIII
