Let me guess. You just thought the youngsters needed some support? <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

Elke to the top...

She went down about 100 places this year and hasn't had any good results in the ITF-challengers this year

I really really hope 2002 will be better, cause if she fails again next year I'll have to give up on her! She's really making NO progress at all! The only highlight of 2001 was the doubles title in Pétange (LUX).

Yeah she's been bothered by back problems for a long time now. Physically she's not as strong as Kim and if they don't find a solution for her back probs I think she might quit tennis in the near future.... <img src="graemlins/sad.gif" border="0" alt="[Sad]" />

i'm sure she's multitalented enough to find her way in a life without tennis <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

i dunno if i would always wanted to be compared to "big sis" that must be annoying for her. I can understand why she'd want to make her own life, without trying to get out of the shadow of her sister in tennisenvironments. And at least her parents won't push her into it. That's cool of them. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

that's good news.

I think you see a lot of Kim in Elke (or the other way around <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> )when she plays, especially her backhand

And I'm sure she will have good results in the future, just give her some time.

Arrow Bump

I thought this deserved a bump as Elke is doing so well in juniors lately!

Good luck to her at the Banana Bowl!
