She is 7th seed, as Farina-Elia has come onboard. She is in Dementieva's quarter! If they both get that far, should be interesting!

Elena starts tonight, against Nejedly. The crowd will be for the Canadian -- but WE will be for YOU, Elena! Chop her down! :D
Sep 19th, 2002, 12:54 AM
And she's off!
Elena Bovina(7) d. Jana Nejedly 6:1 6:4 :)
Hey! The copycat "MGM 2nd title" cheering thread has more posts than Elena's! This cannot be! Come on, Elena fans! :D
Sep 19th, 2002, 10:12 PM
Despite her injury, Elena has advanced. :)
I don't think I will be creating any of these cheering threads for her in future, though. It is too dispiriting to be all alone here! :(
Good luck in the next round, Elena!

Sep 20th, 2002, 02:36 AM

BEST OF LUCK Elena!!
I was very impressed with her USO, but it'll tough with the injury. All the same, she's the best in the field, imo....So I hope she takes the title. :D
(Feeling better Janie?) ;)
Sep 20th, 2002, 08:42 AM
Good luck Elena!!! I'm here!! :)
Sep 20th, 2002, 04:31 PM
Now, THAT'S lots better! :D:D:D

Elena into semis with a 6-2 6-0 demolition of Roesch
Elena D should take some hints and beat these no bodies by this scoreline too.
Elena Bovina vs Anastassia Rodionova in the semis
Giant Elena vs Tiny Nastya

I really hope she can win this title and get that ranking up, and try and finish top 25, the top 10 is waiting
Sep 21st, 2002, 07:35 AM
:D Keep it up, Elena. Yours for the taking.
Sep 21st, 2002, 07:54 AM
:) Good luck Elena!

Good luck Elena!

Elena should not have trouble (I hope!) getting to the final, her 3rd WTA final. good luck Elena! The Rodio rodeo should end today! :D

Elena is ON A RAMPAGE! She is cutting down the competition ruthlessly now. But the final will be a dfifferent story -- GO ELENA! WIN IT!
Sep 21st, 2002, 07:31 PM
Her ranking will move up to at least #34 (she gains 101 points by reaching the final, which brings her point total up to 970)
Good luck in the final Elena!:)
Sep 21st, 2002, 11:33 PM
Verve, thanks for the info! That is a fantastic ranking for Elena. If she wins, she won't need to deal with too many WCs or qualies afterward. :)
Sep 22nd, 2002, 09:56 AM
Yeah, great news for Elena!! :)
Good luck against MGM!
Sep 22nd, 2002, 11:19 AM
All the best Elena!
Sep 22nd, 2002, 11:50 AM
good luck Elena :)
take the title please :)
Elena is upto #34 and ahead of Anna by 0.5 of a point :eek:
come on Elena, stretch that gap by winning final
Sep 22nd, 2002, 12:23 PM
This opponent is in a different class from the ones Elena has faced so far. MGM has slimmed down a lot & is playing fantastic tennis, and the opponents she beat on her way to the final were of a far higher caliber then Elena's opponents.
Elena is going to have to be aggressive, the way she played against Dokic at the US Open, to win. Getting into one of these baseline bashing contests is not going to work for her.
GOOD LUCK, ELENA! Listen to Joe! :D

Very exciting for Elena fans who watched her rise, and then slide last year! Redemption-time! :)
