Although it might sound foolish to comment about a person that you haven't met,you can tell a lot merely by observing someone's body language in how they interact with people.Elena seems to be a gentle,down-to-earth soul--as opposed to a conceited diva--and I'm VERY happy to see her back on tour
.Even though she's lost her last two matches,she is FAR more competitive now than when she first returned,so she's making progress.
Elena's beauty is AMAZING
;she is a giantess next to most women yet her features make her as feminine as a lovely flower.Her only possible physical flaw is that her buns aren't quite as shapely as,say,Serena's or some other gals'--but even these aren't too bad.
I only wish that Elena could use her stature more effectively to overpower some of the smaller players.She could probably beat up Henin in a fight if she had to,but on the tennis court it has been a different story.It's frustrating
that every match with Justine turns out the same way...despite the HUGE size disadvantage,Henin uses her speed to QUICKLY tie Elena up in knots,then the little spiderwoman measures the helpless,tall blonde victim and smothers our girl from head to toe in her silky web(E.B. has had trouble with other small,fast players,too).If Elena can just return to the form that she had prior to injury,then perhaps she'll have the confidence to go a few steps further and join her Russian sisters in the Top 10
