Lena in Cincinnati

Lena is 4 wins away from her 3rd title.

Ever since the Cincinnati tournament was announced earlier this year, this has been the one I've been waiting for.

I sat through all the Slams, Tier I's, Tier II's... knowing Lena had no chance of winning.

But, for Cincinnati... that all changes.

Call me crazy for being so excited about a pathetic lower tier tournament... I am. This is where careers are made. Tier III tournaments are where a star was born in Maria Sharapova. Tier III tournaments are where we all enjoyed so much success with Lena in 2002.



Awww... so cute.

Don't let me down, Lena Bovina...

The time is now.

I don't want to win Tier III's. I'd much rather make the quarters of a major.
Or like Lena L., the semis of a Tier I. Lena isn't Henrieta.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Please, focus and play hard in this tournament, Lena.

Winning feels so sweet.

Isn't Vera going to be there? She's playing as well as Lena.

Yes, Bepa is still on the entry list.

However, she withdrew from New Haven already, so there's a shot she won't play.

And besides, it's not like Lena can't beat Bepa on hardcourt.

Do you think Lena stays in the U.S. next week. Or does she go to Spain? Or Russia?

Lena lives in the US now, so I doubt she'll change.

I think the Spain deal was just for clay season.

I have a constructive poem -

Lena is tall. Lena is strong.
Lena's fans are never wrong.
Lena has style. Lena has flair.
Lena's good luck kitten is over there -

If you loved me, you wouldn't use a rehashed poem.

If I was smarter, I wouldn't repeat myself. I have to wait for the creative magic to flow through me.
