Wow, I see that you are going to visit a lot of events.
Unfotunately I don't have enough money, so I only may be in Sopot - but Lena rather will not be there.

Cool! What do you think are the chances of her playing a grass event other than Wimbledon in the UK? I bet you are praying that Lena will be scheduled on Tuesday then :D As long as she isnt on centre court or court 2 then your sorted :D :wavey:

hehe indeed!!

but of course there is always the practice courts too!!

Lena is already aware of the SS Dementieva and her crew ,courtesy of a fellow crew member of ours giving her some letters!!

So if I introduce myself as Captain Dementinator ,it will be interesting to see her response ,on second thoughts ,hmmmm ,maybe not ,shes bigger than me!! and as much as i cant wait to see the legendary Forehand myself ,i would rather it not be straight in my kisser!!

Incedently Lena did play Edgbaston in 2003 I believe!!

She played s'Hertogenbosch in 2003 if I remember correctly. I think it depends on how she goes in the French Open. If she goes really deep, she'll miss the grass lead up events and give herself a break like last year.

I'm done for 2005, I get the Australian Summer, then I have to sit back for the rest of the year. I'm wondering though, what is Wimbledon like? Is there an aura around the place? It's one of my life goals to attend Wimbledon one day....

But Court 2 also has some space for standing if you do not have a court 2 ticket. This year I think I will have time only to go to Wimby so I hope Lena does better this year. Last year I only saw her on the practise courts.

Wimbledon def has a fantastic Aura ,I have been many times and the atmosphere has to be experienced ,its superb!

On a couple of occasions it has rained and I hardly saw any play ,but somehow you can still have fun!!

Eastbourne is nice too ,has a feeling all of its own and if you want to actually stand a chance of talking or getting a signiture or pic from a player its much easier there tna Wimbledon ,its more relaxed!

One more thing ,a tip ,Join the LTA ,wether you play or not ,as this puts you into the automatics LTA ballot for wimb tickets and you have a much higher chance of getting any I have had about 6 lots now in 10 years..

It costs around £25 and you get ACE magazine every month too!!

If you join the Famous Wimbledon Queue (line) at around 7.30am ,you WILL get into ground and some of the best matches I have seen have been on outside courts ,you get up real close to the action ,be careful of Lenas Forehands tho!!

Yes, I have had LTA ballot tickets every year that I have applied. And this year I have also public ballot tickets too. But also I am working again for the Securicor Security again this year so I get paid to watch it ;). It is a very excellent job if you get assigned a good position, but probably very boring for the people who must stand in front of a door for two weeks.

Thats good news about court 2 anyway! It certainly gives me more options although Im weighting my tennis days more in the French Open than Wimbledon.

For Lollipop - Last year Lena did play Filderstadt but she lost poorly to Lisa Raymond in the first round (0-6 5-7). She has played there in 1999/2002/2003/2004 so Id assume she will this year. We wont know for a few months though.

Lena did enter Strasbourg in 2003 but again lost poorly in the first round to Emile Loit 3-6 6-2 3-6. I doubt very much she will enter it as its only a Tier 3 event. I havent come across an entry list as of yet though.

Just a question, I just want to get ACE magazine did I have toautomaticly join LTA ???

I will be in Roland Garros normally the weekend just before the first day so i hope to see her trainning, and I will have some ticket for the final......so she know what she had to do for see her "famous" photographer ;)

Ive bought the magazine a few times and it says in there that if you subscribe then they give you a free Advantage Membership of the LTA - which means you can be entered in the Wimbledon tickets ballot.

I wish I could go and see Elena play, but I have a horrible condition that's known as 'No money'.
Luckily it's not contagious though, so any of you planning to see Elena play this year shouldn't worry.

Hey, E.Dementieva, didn't you see Elena's matches when she played in HK this year?

Likewise, I also hope she'll come to HK again in 2006 and let's go see together!

Hmmm! I should start writing letters to Elena too!

I've been to the past three US Opens and plan to go this year ... hopefully Elena will still be playing in the second week while I'm there. I also have tentative plans to see the Acura Classic in Carlsbad, Calif. Elena has played there before so I'm hoping for a repeat showing. Of course I'll pack my camera.
