Hi All,

Just thought i would tell ya that Eleni is no longer with Judith Sprenger and is looking for a new coach. Hopefully a new coach will take her to the next level as she is to talented to be someone that ranks around the 50 mark.

I believe this is good news as it shows to me that Eleni wants to really make a mark on the tour and needs a coach that will test her and fix her weakneses (serve) This is long overdue in my opinion and it seemed that Eleni didn't have the courage to look for someone else, Obviously that has changed.

Also Eleni has a official website (www.daniilidou.net (http://www.daniilidou.net)) with all the usual stuff which also included a photo of her boyfriend called Tom.. The fellow is quite a looker!!!

About time she made a change, she really is too good to be down there.

And she has a boyfriend?

There are some to die for photos in off court gallery :drool: I really liked Judith, hope she will find a new player to coach and that Eleni will come back to where she belongs, a top 20 that is.

Tom is ok although not my type really. Eleni is quite a looker herself too ;)

Not a bad idea at all. After all they were together in Aussie Open mixed doubles final a few years ago :)

They are very good friends I hear ;) ...reguardless of who it is....what a player to work with!!!! Has the talent to reach heights I doubt she thought attainable.

She is definitely a top 10 material if only stays healthy and works with a coach who can push her a bit and do something with her serve. The girl has 182 cm of height, her serve should be her killer weapon. And really, Eleni has such a natural talent, she really can be one of the best in the world.

I still don't get what the fascination is with WTA players and their sexuality.....I'd be testing a few for testicles before questioning their sexuality.

I mean seriously!!! Sam Stosur plays doubles with Lisa Raymond...and months ago everyone thought that made her a lesbian. Sex education needs to include more than "putting a condom on a carrot" obviously.

Pls!! Not hacking you personally, I think you are a nice poster, just over the issue. ;)

Fact is unless you are an American or Russian tennis player (Belgium excluded because both have been public with guys)....you are considered a lesbian if you don't have a cute guy on youre arm in every picture taken. Those non-air brushed and earthy types can be straight too :wavey:

In 2004 Daniilidou was interviewed by the Greek Newspaper "Kathimerini" in which she revealed that she was lesbian.

I liked Judith as a coach, but maybe with a new coach she can get herself back in to the top 20/30 :D

Kalisperaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!
Kalispera means Good afternoon. I am at the bar, at the hotel, watching soccer and i was just thinking of you guys!!!
I would like to inform you about my coaching situation, as you could see even in Paris, i stopped working with Judith. After 4years, we both wanted to have a change :bounce: . So at the moment i am trying to find the best solution, i am trying some coaches, so lets see... About my tournaments so far...??
We lost here with Anabel the doubles, was not a good match but also the draw was not helping . I had a short hit after the doubles just to feel again better on court.
Today was a new day and i am so happy...
I played a great match, the level was very high and i was on with my serve!!! A big help for my game!!!
Tomorrow vs Gisela, a tough match, i am looking forward because she has an intresting game. I will give everything to win,i need this matches, i really want to WIN!!!
Kisses to all,

Eleni call Brad Gilbert....he can help learn how to get the most out of poor movement like he did in his career plus I think Eleni needs help with the strategy and Brad is very good at that. :yeah:

Going to check out Eleni's boyfriend pic. :bolt:

Good move for Eleni I think :yeah:

PS The only reason I, personally, am surprised that Eleni has a boyfriend is because after seeing her at Birmingham I kind of assumed she was seeing Jasmin Woehr since they went everywhere together/watched each others matches etc. But if Eleni has a boyfriend then good for her :)

Change is good, it can become all too easy with the same coach for a long time, so I hope when she finds a new coach that it does her good. I like her, I think she has more potential than her ranking currrently shows.

I don't think her longtime coach was the issue with her game. Eleni needs to part with her longtime overweight issues and noone can make her do that except herself.
She's a talented player but her fitness has always been questionable.

Its amazing how fast wta players get labelled lesbians if they "look" a certain way.

Didn't Eleni have a consistent, strong serve when she first came on the scene, and it was a back injury that wrecked havoc with her serve??

I don't think she has a certain look, she's drop-dead gorgeous :drool:
And I think you are right about the serve, it used to be much better a few years back.

woweeeeeee, Eleni! :eek: Cute Boyfriend. :yeah:

I think what people mean by Eleni's look is that for the longest time she dressed as a tomboy. Wearing male tennis shirts that were too big, wearing her cap backwards....very butch...which is a sign sometimes that a lady is gay. :shrug:

But I love this a bit butch style, maybe not oversized shirts but the cap backwards is so cool. Plus she's such a gorgeous girl that she would look hot in anything :drool: Now I sound a bit gay, don't I? :lol: :lol:
