Okay, as long as she is not holding a two-week-long party to celebrate winning her first title ....

Elena had a respectable outing today, losing in 3 sets to the 9th seed, Farina-Elia. She is playing doubles with Bedanova here, a player she has won with before-- I hope they will go far!

A respectable outing isn't good enough, Janie!

And you have to question her preperation for the French. Why didn't she play for two weeks after winning Warsaw?

Exclamation

Of course Elena lost; she played someone who is better at tennis than she is right now! What do you expect? I don't hold it against her. It's not like she lost to CHRISTINA WHEELER, or something -- THEN I'd be annoyed at her!

Anway I am going to follow her in the doubles here, and then i will follow her in the grass-court season. Go EB! YOU are the Russian with a title in the new century! Ignore the cat and the egg!

Elena and Daja have won thair 2nd-round doubels match, this time far more easily than last time.

But don't they face the top seeds next? I think that will be the end of the road for them -- that's a tough draw.

End of the road indeed -- but they did take a set off the top team in the world!

Elena is in the Mixed Semifinals, with Mark Knowles. They beat the Aus Open Champions today (Hantuchova/Ullyett), so that is no mean feat!

A great experience for Elena, being in the 2nd week of a Slam. Now that she's been there, she will want to be there all the time. Good luck to Mark and Elena!

Good Luck Today in the Mixed Semis, Elena and Mark!

There is NO reason you cannot beat the top seeds! Just go all-out, have a lot of fun, and before you know it, you will be in the Final.

BTW, Elena, congrats on hooking up with such a great partner in Mark Knowles. Just follow his lead, and you will be fine.

I cam here to say, Good Luck to Elena against Qualifier in Birmingham -- then I remembered that Elena is still in Paris, learning what it is like to play on the final day of a Slam!

Okay, so win tomorrow in Paris with Mark, then off to Birmingham with you to beat up on your "Q"!
