So ... guys ... as I wrote in the fan club, I'll be in Moscow in December and will meet Olga Morozova and Anna Dmitrieva. I also suggest that you write letters to Elena, and I'll pass all these letters to her.

You can send your letters to verba_tanya@yahoo.com or verba_tanya@mail.ru (write in your topic that it's a letter for Elena)

Hi everyone!

I was at Elena's practice today. It happened unexpected , so I didn't have your letters with me (and I also didn't have a camera with me). But we decided that I come tomorrow to her practice again and give her your letters.

She's such a sweet and a nice girl!!!!!!!!!!!! She thanked me for all the words I said to her. I talked to her for about 10 minutes after her tennis practice while she was waiting for her fitnness coach Zhuk.

I talked to Olga for about 40 minutes - the last 10 minutes, when we were waiting for Elena, we chatted about my PhD program and about my economic research paper.

I don't have here much access to the Internet. So, I'll write you more details later.

Have a lot of fun. Wait for your news


Hope that the S.S. Dementieva don't miss you to much, and my pics also too.....well I think that it don't miss you at all because you can see Elena in real. LUCKY :eek: :p

Hi everybody!

I overslept today ... so I just saw the last 20 minutes of Elena's practice but that was enough to get that her game was just off .... She was so mad at herself ... I GAVE YOUR LETTERS PERSONALLY TO HER after her practice... SHE THANKED YOU, GUYS...and I wished her good luck in Belgium... She looked disappointed (because of her poor game today) and she was in a hurry (because she's leaving to Belgium today) so I decided not to take an autograph.

Then I talked to Olga about Lena (not much - just a little).

More to follow...
See ya!

Dec 16th, 2004, 11:20 AM

SHame Elenas practice was off today but thats how it goes ,good and bad ,thats what practice is for ,ususally in my experiance shitty practice is often followed by good performances ,so lets hope she has fun in Belgium ,i really wanna her to enjoy herself more than anything ,this is and exhib after all not a GS final!! so she really has no pressure ,she can play her game and have fun ,try new things see how it goes....

Hi my dear friends!

My brief report.

1. Elena looks great right now (not so tired and exausted as at the YEC)- she looks as if she had enough rest

2. Max Afinogenov is her boyfriend (100% certainty)

3. When I told Lena that these are the letters from her fans, who already wrote her 3 times this year, she looked confused (so, I have a suspision that mommy Vera, probably, didn't pass our previous letters to her).

4. Her serve. She doens't serve better in practice. The percentage of the serves which are in is pretty low - 40-50%. The toss is fine (not far to the right)

5. My uncle who knows Lena since she was 12, watched her practice with me and said that her practice now is much-much better than it was with Pashkov (Lena's former coach) - it's mucn more interesting and productive (thanks to Olga)

6. You are not gonna beleive this but I saw Mommy Vera just once. She came with Elena on Wednesday and right after that left, so she wasn't at her practice. I didn't see mommy Vera onThursday at all.

7. I talked to Olga a bit. She said that there is some room for technical and tactical improvement. She also said that Lena is very demanding to herself (and also to Olga). After the USO Olga was so exausted that she spent 3 days in her bed doing nothing.

8. I got to know Lena's fitness coach Zhuk (he's a great friend of my uncle). He finds sparring partners for Elena. This week she played with some 20-year-old Sergei. Honestly, I think they could find a better sparring partner... I guess they don't pay anything to Sergei.

9. Her practice is of 2 parts. The first part lasts for 2 hours - it's tennis practice. They practice serve in the beginning (startnig fron the half-court and then gradually moving to the baseline) and in the end. Only flat serves, of course. Then they have lunch. The second part is fitness part (Olga and Zhuk are both there).

10. Olga is great, guys. She's so open, she's so communicable.

11. Elena isn't very concentrated during practice - she's looking around sometimes, watching guys palying on the nearby court.

If I recall something else, I'll write.

See ya!!!!

AKTW
Dec 18th, 2004, 12:10 PM
Tanya, thank you very much for your report! :D :D I enjoy reading it very much.

2. Max Afinogenov is her boyfriend (100% certainty)
:eek: :eek: :eek: Why didn't Lena admit it before??
This is the most shocking news!!!
Tanya, did you see him?

3. When I told Lena that these are the letters from her fans, who already wrote her 3 times this year, she looked confused (so, I have a suspision that mommy Vera, probably, didn't pass our previous letters to her).
Thank you for that.
Oh Mommy Vera really didn't give our letters to Lena.
Why was that? :confused:
Now I want to know how many times Lena has received our letters.

4. Her serve. She doens't serve better in practice. The percentage of the serves which are in is pretty low - 40-50%. The toss is fine (not far to the right)
Myabe we have to see how Lena will do in the exo.

5. My uncle who knows Lena since she was 12, watched her practice with me and said that her practice now is much-much better than it was with Pashkov (Lena's former coach) - it's mucn more interesting and productive (thanks to Olga)
It's nice to hear that. :)

6. You are not gonna beleive this but I saw Mommy Vera just once. She came with Elena on Wednesday and right after that left, so she wasn't at her practice. I didn't see mommy Vera onThursday at all.
Now Mommy Vera is really confusing me...

7. I talked to Olga a bit. She said that there is some room for technical and tactical improvement. She also said that Lena is very demanding to herself (and also to Olga). After the USO Olga was so exausted that she spent 3 days in her bed doing nothing.
Even Olga was so exhausted, Lena...:sobbing:

9. Her practice is of 2 parts. The first part lasts for 2 hours - it's tennis practice. They practice serve in the beginning (startnig fron the half-court and then gradually moving to the baseline) and in the end. Only flat serves, of course. Then they have lunch. The second part is fitness part (Olga and Zhuk are both there).
Lena is really practising hard. Can't wait for the 2005 season! :bounce:

10. Olga is great, guys. She's so open, she's so communicable.
I am glad that you're having a great time! :D She's probably told you a lot about Lena.

11. Elena isn't very concentrated during practice - she's looking around sometimes, watching guys palying on the nearby court.
Was Lena looking at some cute guys? :lick: Lena, you already have Max! :hehehe:

1. Elena looks great right now (not so tired and exausted as at the YEC)- she looks as if she had enough restThis is good news ... in deed :bounce:

2. Max Afinogenov is her boyfriend (100% certainty)This is bad news for guy fans in deed :lol:
but me isn't very satsified..:o
Max isn't handsome..but he seems to be kind and very supportive..:)
he is also a quite famous sportman..
they should understand each other and he should make Lena happy...:angel:
Do ya know how long they have been together?!
Maybe even before FO :lol:

3. When I told Lena that these are the letters from her fans, who already wrote her 3 times this year, she looked confused (so, I have a suspision that mommy Vera, probably, didn't pass our previous letters to her).:eek: :eek:
Or Lena forgot it?!
Cos' Lena remembered it when K-LinaSpremfan asked her in San Diego..:confused:
but the last 2 were given to Mommy Vera :lol:
OMG Mommy can't do this to us.. :rolleyes: :mad:

4. Her serve. She doens't serve better in practice. The percentage of the serves which are in is pretty low - 40-50%. The toss is fine (not far to the right)If the percentage is low but her toss, motion, direction, and speed are improved ...
then me ok :)
cos' Justine has a low percentage of serve but it's damn effective

5. My uncle who knows Lena since she was 12, watched her practice with me and said that her practice now is much-much better than it was with Pashkov (Lena's former coach) - it's mucn more interesting and productive (thanks to Olga)Damn love Olga now...:hearts:

6. You are not gonna beleive this but I saw Mommy Vera just once. She came with Elena on Wednesday and right after that left, so she wasn't at her practice. I didn't see mommy Vera onThursday at all.Mommy Vera didn't go to some tournies with Lena this yr..
my guess...she is exhausted and wants to spend time with Lena's dad..
Did ya see Lena's brother?!

7. I talked to Olga a bit. She said that there is some room for technical and tactical improvement. She also said that Lena is very demanding to herself (and also to Olga). After the USO Olga was so exausted that she spent 3 days in her bed doing nothing.I saw Olga at USO also..
she seemed to be a relaxing person..unlike Mommy Vera..
me thinks the seriousness of Mommy Vera and Lena wore Olga out :lol:
and when Lena played doubles which aren't sooooo important..
mommy Vera was still very serious about it...
Olga seemed bored sometimes :haha:

8. I got to know Lena's fitness coach Zhuk (he's a great friend of my uncle). He finds sparring partners for Elena. This week she played with some 20-year-old Sergei. Honestly, I think they could find a better sparring partner... I guess they don't pay anything to Sergei.Oh.....Lena should also have a sparring partner when she is in such tournies..

9. Her practice is of 2 parts. The first part lasts for 2 hours - it's tennis practice. They practice serve in the beginning (startnig fron the half-court and then gradually moving to the baseline) and in the end. Only flat serves, of course. Then they have lunch. The second part is fitness part (Olga and Zhuk are both there).:)

10. Olga is great, guys. She's so open, she's so communicable.Olga is damn nice...
me likes her more and more :D:D:D

11. Elena isn't very concentrated during practice - she's looking around sometimes, watching guys palying on the nearby court.Oh...:(

Thankgodness that the toss is fine :) Maybe that serve % is low because she had that bad day.4me the toss and serve speed and direction is the most inportant.

I am interested Verba to hear the reactions of Elena and Olga to this win for Elena. And if they feel they are making even better progress.

E.Dementieva it is not nice to say such things about Elena's mother. Imagine is some of her people read your message, Elena would be very upset.

You must not get so angry!! Just enjoy Elena and her tennis!! :D

Besides the beer, Ireland has great pubs, much better than Belgian café's.

Yep, every beer needs his own glass.

Drinking Duvel not in a Duvelglass is a sin in Belgium. ;)

Never drunk other irish beer, a friend of me said that they have also great beerst in Ireland wich you can compare with Belgian beers. But i only drink foreign beer when i'm on holiday in that country. So for British beer Ireland of Britain, i don't thrust Brittisch beer. :lol:

Yes, you can get Harp in the U.S. Sadly, most of our popular beers are merely okay at best. So you either have to drink imports or microbrewery beers (which are often as good as the imports, but just as expensive).

My favorite stout is Thomas Cooper's from Australia. But I haven't seen it in the U.S. for years.

Do they still make the stuff?

I can't imagine a good Russian girl like Lena not imbibing the occasional vodka. Or, given that she's seems to be a bit of Francophile, a glass of champagne.

In fact, let's hope Lena has an excuse to pop a cork or two in Australia, Paris, London and New York in 2005!
