Safina it seems has stepped up her fitness and her mental game, still not sure she will graduate this year.

Vera, has def turned a corner and is a few credits short of her certificate, it's still too soon to tell if she's rdy.


Amelie, a former student, has signed up for some post graduate studies....

How could you forget Elena the perennial class topper but somehow never manages to graduate?

Please. Elena is Headmistress of the MMA. The happiest days of her life were when she got to hand diplomas to her two favorite students, Nastya and Kuzzy. She was moved to tears.

Sadly, Nastya turned out to be a little tart and Kuzzy has reverted to her old ways.

Despite these errors in judgement, Headmistress Elena remains very popular with the students. (There's some talk of starting a fund to rename the gymnasium after her).

exactly why i didn't mention Elena, she seems quite content where she is. I don't think Kuzzy graduated either. Yes she won a slam, but the only thing bringing her game down is her mental approach to the game.

The gymnasium? If things continue the way they are, they're going to rename the entire academy. Elena Dementieva's Shriek & Spin School of Mental Midgetness

There will be guide books written on the Elena Dementieva philosophy in losing matches you shouldn't. I think Descartes will be coming back from the dead: "I think therefore I ain't [ever going to win a slam]"

Amelie is going for a second PhD. You would think she's learned all that she can, but she really enjoys the communal showers in the dorm rooms.

At least, Elena, Bepa, Dinara, Amelie, and Svetla are pursuing college degrees. I think Ana is enrolled also.

Btw, it's interesting that 4 top Russian players can combine college and professional tennis. Other than Amelie and Ana, who else on the tour is going to college?

Venus has a degree, can't remember what it's in.

Rumor has it Elena pissed off a major donor when she won the Olympics. But a few more epic collapses like vs. Patty at the AO and Safina at the FO and our elite team of fundraisers may be able to pry the old purse strings open.

Will she still be on scholarship list if she finally cracks the top 3?

An interesting aside: Headmistress Elena actually has an earlier curfew than many of her pupils, thanks to Mommy Vera.

She'll be on kitchen duty is what she'll be on. That is after she gets a whole week of detention, Bart Simpson style: "I will always lose a match even when I'm leading. I will always lose a match even when I'm leading. I will always lose a match even when I'm leading. I will always lose a match even when I'm leading. I will always lose a match even when I'm leading.
