Lena looks awful...

I understand Lena wants to be as fit as possible... but my girl looks unhealthy now.

Just looking at this pic brings tears to my eyes...

I'm fearing that Lena is turning into the next Daniela. She didn't seem as cheerful this winter, and I'm praying that she doesn't have an eating disorder.

I'd rather see her not play tennis... because she's lost weight constantly for 3 years now... and she can't afford to lose anymore.



And, if you're reading this Lena... please take care of yourself.

I don't think Dani has an eating disorder.
She is an athlete with low bodyfat. It's different.

I'm surprised Lena looks thinner than she used to. I hope it's because she wasn't feeling well and wasn't eating normally. I think Lena should be adding weight instead of losing weight. She has so much game and is so good looking. I hope Lena regains the weight she lost in the offseason and then adds some more weight and turns it into muscle. Then she'll really be a dangerous player.

Lena might be trying to get quicker. Let's see how the year plays out.

I hope that's all it is, GL. But it's going to be hard for a 6'3" tall woman like Elena Bovina to become quicker. Taking quick steps is not a strength of hers.

I got pics - lots! I met Lena once again at the Adidas Int, my sister said the same when watching her on TV - but then when I bought my sister with me and introduced her to Lena, she saw, that sure Lena is THIN - but looks healthy and YES she needs to gain some muscle, but she looks fine

I'll post the pics when I get home - but really she does look fine, nothing to be worried about. and her mother never spoke about any problems besides her sore wrists and sore right knee, thats been playing up lately!!

That's good to hear. And I love Lena's draw. But I loved her draw in New York also.
If Lena gets rolling, this could be her breakout major.

I don't know if Dani or Lena have an eating disorder... but whatever it causing them to look so skinny, has to be stopped.

Drew, I'm glad you got to meet Lena again. I hate to hear that her Mom is still worried about her damn knee/thigh. Lena might need some time off, because it was hurting her in Toronto... and it's been a problem since Tokyo, last year.

it's been said millions of times: she had mononucleosis and lost a lot of weight because of that.

Lena was down 5-3 in the third, and won the last 4 games. That means stamina.
You can't do that if you're anorexic or bulemic.

Well done Lena! But don't you think she's too thin?

I can't tell from those pictures. But Lena finished strong today. That's what's important.
