This is the cheering thread for the beautiful Elena Tchalova.
Lena won 3 10k tournaments in 2005
* Krasnoarmeisk (Russia)
* Rebecq (Belgium)
* Lleida (Spain)
she pushed her ranking from 852 at the end of 2004 to 400 at the end of 2005
her biggest win was beating Zsofia Gubacsi (#211)
Elena has trained in the TennisKing Academy in the german city Ellental. Thats why she plays many tournaments in Germany and is best on clay.
I saw her in Horb last year and she has big groundstrokes (especially her forehand was impressive) and a solid serve. I think she needs to improve her mental abilities as she was not very focused in her doubles match and made some lousy errors!
But she will go further in the rankings. I am sure about that
Lena also is gonna play $25,000 Patras (GRE), which starts on April, 10th because she withdrew from one of Italian ITFs and the reason is she playing in Greece
It's definetly good signs of life of Lena
