View Full Version : Elena Likhovtseva

Elena is out of Berlin - again in an early round. Yet her ranking is still relatively high.

Elena is rarely mentioned here - just wondering why she has so few fans. She can seem a little arrogant sometimes, but she does seem driven to me. I would say she and Dechy have the fewest fans for top 20 players. Are there any Elena fans at all?

Elena is such a sweet girl. I like her very much and also her copassion for the game.

I got to know her a bit after her victory over Farina Elia. I called Elena and she came over to the other side of the court, signed something for me and even asked me if I enjoyed the match. :) I really, really like her. :)

I seem to like players that don't have so many fans: Maleeva, Likki, Schiavone... :)

her ranking is going to follow Dechy's --> nosedive

Oh and Elena is sort of a player that has streaks of great tournaments and streaks of worse ones... Usually she starts to peak at a certain event and then the rest of her season is quite good...
So I'm not worried too much about her...

Likhovtseva is an ironwoman. She has played in 47 consecutive Grand Slams.

she is old and pretty much only remembrance of the dreadful weaponless players of yesteryears . But I guess she is a nice person and yes she has fans here, believe me :)

I'm not a huge fan, but I've liked her for the last ten years or so - she's one of those players who I like to see do well but I'm not hugely disappointed if she loses.

Yeah, I'm not really a fan, but I like her geometric forehand technique. It's rather straightforward looking.
