Thumbs up

A good start for Elena in the Qualies. She just has to get over that hump ... I hope this will be the week it ahppens! I hope she has been inspired by Alex Stevenson's success.

pretty good win but she should be putting players like Eva Bes away especially indoors much easier

go Elena go, time to get into gear

Egg,

I think Elena's confidence must be at rock-bottom right now, so for me, any victory at all is a good one and an important one.

If she starts to LOSE matches like this one, she could become the next Mirjana Lucic!

Good luck in the 2nd rd, Elena! I will always pull for you! Even if Eggy and I are the only ones!

Me too! Or is it me three? Or me four? Actually, Elena is so good looking and she plays such exciting power tennis, that if she can ever make to top 20, she'll have plenty of fans. I just hope Elena can regain the fine form she had last spring. Where did it go? It also may be time for her to return to Bollettieri's.

That's a great idea, cat.

And thank you and fresh2flash for joining in to support Elena when things are going kind of bad for her.

I am a much happier supporter of the Russians now that I have learned to accept them as great kids, whatever level they are at, instead of constantly expecting too much, as I did last year.

In other words, I am becoming more like Eggy.

Elena did not lose a set in the qualifying- hard to tell if she was having trouble closing out, but she managed, and that's what counts!

Question

Ouch! I didn't realize Elena had a MATCH POINT against Elena D, till I read Annafan's in-person report!

It sounded like she played a great match, really. I hope her confidence is rising after this week. Where does she play next? I hope she is playing one of these Tier 3s.
