Re: Los Angeles 2007

Such a good fight, from an ill Eleni.

Even better, I have photos of our girl SMILING. Yes, SMILING!








And the sad photos...retirement. She was ill. Coughing, seemed
like her chest was hurting. She called the trainer, who called the
doctor (a guy named Jarod or Jerrod or something like that--I know
him from my tennis club! Next time I see him, I'm going to ask him
what Eleni's chest sounded like through the stethoscope...)




It was a great fight, especially considering Eleni's illness.
It was so good to see her smile, as well. Some of the smiling photos
are from a part of the match when Sharapova challenged a call that
was clearly out (the call went in Eleni's favor.)

I'll try to give you a more coherent report later. It's late here.

Re: Los Angeles 2007

Wow, Mary These smilining pics are worth a milion Lovely, really lovely and indeed, she had a haircut, looks very cute with such a short hair As for the match, great fight, she made me proud and I hope it's nothing serious as the US Open is coming up.
The score : Sharapoca def. Eleni 7-6(5), 3-1 RET.

You know, there is some strange relation between Eleni and my fave female volleyball player, Maggie Glinka. Sometimes, when something happens, it happens to both of them on the same day...Last year during the USO when Eleni injured herself and had to retire vs Na Li and withdraw from doubles, Maggie had an argument with the national team coach in China during a World Grand Prix and he banished her from the national team. Now, almost a year later, Eleni got injured again and Maggie, again in China for World Grand Prix, was close to a tragedy when during a training, a screwdriver fell from the roof (it had 30 cm, a big one) and stuck deep in the floor next to Maggie's head....They say a Chinese worker left it there but for God's sake, I can't even think about what could have happen without shiver...

Re: Los Angeles 2007

Eleni and Jaz are scheduled for court 4 later today. Good luck girls!

There is a new entry on Eleni's website, from yesterday. So nice of Eleni to update us with her conditions just after the match.

Re: Los Angeles 2007

Oh poor baby I hope the new medecine works well and she'll be soon recovered I'm a little worried about her health at the moment How nice of her to update her site just after the match.Eleni,that's one of the reasons why we love you so much She seems to be such a sweet,caring person

I love your photos Mary A huge thanks!!!! You are so lucky to see Eleni live I'm jealous.


Good luck for doubles!!! (Will she be ok to play? I don't think it's a good idea to play when you are ill.It would be wiser to be fully rested for Toronto next week.Well,she knows what she does )Good luck if you play it

Re: Los Angeles 2007

I can't make the doubles match today. So many matches I would
like to see. But I have some meetings at work, and duties/responsibilities.
But I can't really complain--yesterday was wonderful. (And I have to thank
Nadia Petrova and her coach Lars most of all, tho' I doubt they read this forum:
they gave me the really-great ticket to the night session.)
