cat,<br />what you say interests me. Lindsay, another big girl, took years to develop her wonderful serve. I hope Elena is working on that right now, as well as her movement and her mental toughness! <br />Although Elena's year ended badly with that disastrous Fed Cup match, at least she can take solace in those 2 doubles wins right at the end of the season. <br />What is her coaching situation? Does she have a parent-coach too, like so many of the young Russians?
