(Yes, it passed from my thoughts. I feel and I believe that I can give more...that's why I continue!! I love very much what I am doing and I will keep doing it until I will get tired mentally or bodywise.)
Bobby from the US:
Switzerland is about same size as greece in terms of population. how come they have such tremendous players and greece doesn't? are you coming back?
Tennis in Greece is not so big. the last few years it became way better so I just hope and wish that we can have some players coming up!! I am still struggeling to come back after my knee injury. I hope to come back to key biscayne soon as I have some great memories over there!!
Mike from Australia:
What has been the most memorable match in your career and why?
I had some great matches but ofcource the 2 most memorable matches were...in Wimbledon beating justine henin the number 1 in the word. It’s always very special to play the number 1 in the world and even more special to play it in Wimbledon!! the other one was in greece at the olympics, in front of my crowd playing Anastasia Myskina, number 2 in the world, by being injured, central court, night match!!

When i participate in all the olympic games!!! as I played in Sydney, Athens and in Beijing. It’s very very special moments!!
What is your goal for the rest of the year? Who are your best friends on tour? Where do you see yourself in five years? Will you still be playing? Will you open up a tennis academy when you retire? Do you think in Greece there will be a WTA tournament soon?
andrew...I will answer to all your questions!!
My goal for the rest of the year is to stay healthy as I am now!!
My best friend on tour is Jasmin Woehr.
In 5years?? I hope to be healthy and to keep playing...I love this game!!
About the academy?? it's too far to think about it but I love the sport and I want to help the sport so...everything is possible!!
About a Wta tournament in Greece?? I hope and I wish that we can have one!!it would be really great!!
If you could replay one match from your whole career (even a very difficult one) which one would it be and why?
It would be at the olympics games in Athens!! the match with Anastasia Myskina. I was very sharp through all the week, playing and feeling realy well. the match before this, I got injured. so next day I had to play her and of course I was not ready. it was a match to go to quarter-finals!!!
Themis from New Haven, USA:
At this stage in your career what adjustments in your game do you think will help you reach your full potential and perhaps get in the top 20 again.
To stay healthy with my body,get fitter and get back my full confidence!!!
