Madrid and Amsterdam are both 8:27 PM Tuesday

In Russian press appeared a big interview of Morozova.
You can see it whole here http://www.sport-express.ru/art.shtml?171796
A summary what she told: answering the question why Sveta lost so many finals Olga said that Sveta has everything to win any final and it is the main thing. They must forget all this finals, wherever Sveta lost it and she (Olga) must help Sveta to show her best. The next season will be tough for Sveta becouse she changed many things in her life and WTA have done many changes in the next season. Olga also said that it is very interesting for her to work with Sveta, cause she is very talented girl and has a great sense of humor. They both want to Sveta would play more agressive, come to the net more.
They will be training in Moscow until the New Year, and after holidays they will go to the Australia. Sveta likes to be in Moscow, she enjoys Russian language everywhere, she takes apartments near the court, where they training. Their team includes Sveta, Olga, fitness coach called Oleg Vovk (so her main helpers names are Olga and Oleg :) and Sveta's hitting partner. Also Olga wants that Sveta's parents help her. Olga has a contract with Sveta for one year.

Hi, all :wavey:

I've heard from Laurie, and Sveta would enjoy our greetings :) If we PM Laurie, then he will get them to Lawrence (Sveta's agent).

I thought we could write one message from all of us, or else each of us write one and send it separately. Let me know what you think :).

hey I would like to send a message from us all or just the 2 of us I dont mind I already send one from myself alone but didnt hear from that person if she has send it to her so to write one again from me alone I think will look strange but how are you planning to that how can we write something together maybe on pm??? but yeah like the idea. let me know

Анна
Dec 28th, 2008, 07:01 PM
Well, I wasn't sure how to do it, actually. Maybe I could write something and send it to you and Vero by PM, then if it's OK by both of you, I could send it to Laurie. It would be "signed" by all of us, of course.

Yeah, on second thought, it might be just easier if all of us write to her ourselves and PM it to Laurie. I'm just thinking of the time differences between us, and the fact that I'm going into year-end, which is ultra busy. I'm trying not to take anything else on until after this week. Mel, I don't think she'd mind getting a second message :). You could just explain that you didn't know whether the first one went through or not.

but again I dont mind I wait for your answer or else I will write one on my own again

Tennis is easy compared to (American) football. The offseason starts after the Super Bowl in three weeks, and goes until late August-almost seven months! But I suppose one has to be a huge fan like me to miss it :p. I never noticed the tennis offseason before this year, and it's the longest two months of my life :help:.

OK,I've had longer times than a tennis offseason :p, as everybody has. A lot of things unrelated to tennis, some family things, all conspire to make one long two months.

Tennis is easy compared to (American) football. The offseason starts after the Super Bowl in three weeks, and goes until late August-almost seven months! But I suppose one has to be a huge fan like me to miss it :p. I never noticed the tennis offseason before this year, and it's the longest two months of my life :help:.

Luckily I'm not a big fan of American Football. I tried to watch it when I moved here from Ireland but I never had the passion for it that I have for tennis. I have always felt sorry for the diehard fans though that have to wait so long between seasons. I guess we're lucky that the tennis offseason is only 2 months and that our girls have the stamina to recoup quickly :bounce::bounce:
