Lena is not in Key Biscayne

Good luck Lena in Miami. I read this-

I also saw Bovina with her her Coach and it is a big difference. Bovina`s Coach, also female and from russia is much more rude and demanding.


Demand that Lena play every match like it's against Capriati.

I hope Lena has good results immediately in her comeback from her injury. But it might take a couple of tournaments before she finds her form. GL, I want Lena playing her take no prisoners style of tennis that gives powerhouse Jennifer Capriati such a hard time.

Udachi Lena!

These big fields, like Indian Wells, mean a good chance to meet a non-top 50 player in the first round.

Much more rude and demanding than Joe?

I'm afraid that's not possible.

GL and Cat, unfortunately, Lena cannot play at the level she did vs. Jen. So there's no point wishing for it.

Can she play like Gala?

No... she doesn't have the crafty left-handed game that Gala does.

Lena is incapable of playing the powerful tennis that controlled most of the points against Jenny. That's all I meant.

Keep the faith, EV. I can tell you really like Lena and are passionate about her tennis. And if she stays healthy she has a chance to become a force on the WTA Tour in the future. And what if the Williams sisters have played their best tennis and Kim Clijsters never becomes a great player? Then there will room for Lena and other Russina's to try to make a run at the top of women's tennis. keep thinking big. I think big for Big Masha. And why not? The worst I see Sharapova becoming is a top 10 player. But I expect much more from her in terms of being a top tennis player. If Lena can get it together and play the kind of dynamic tennis that she has shown flashes of then she will become a top tennis player.

I think Maria is going to play well here. I think this is a good time to beat Nastya. She never plays well at IW.
I can see Maria getting to the semis, and playing Justine. And Sveta showed that Justine is beatable.

I don't like the "if" game.

There's just no positives with Lena now... I can't say "Oh, at least she's looking in better shape" or "She's working hard on her game".

Well, there may be one positive...

She's going to be Top 40 for the next 8 months, even if she's always injured and/or has terrible results. She has time to turn it around.

I like the way you think, GL. Most of the time.

Atleast you're more positive now, EV. If Lena has that burning desire to be a top player she will become one. Her power game fits right in with today women's tennis.

Injuries are a part of the tour. And Lena is out now. When she comes back, we will find out.
I want Dinara to come back in Miami also.

Injuries are very damaging to the WTA Tour. And the same players seem to get injured over and over again. But I hope Lena can stay healthy the rest of 2004 and find her form.

Good night.

No word that Lena has withdrawn yet.

Let's hope she wins a match.
