Fairly good draw, untill the Quarters where Mauresmo will give her trouble.
Let's hope for another Alyona/Juju semi, and another Alyona win :D :yeah:

I hope Elena will win as well. First of all, take one match at a time. Elena seems a bit tired, so not sure if she will play well. But, we all always believe in her, right? :yeah:

The seeding is quite good for her. She will rest a day and start with new motivation to defend her title. Come on, Lena!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :kiss:

Its not too bad. Mauresmo is coming back from injury, so she may not be a top form (plus Smashnova could drive her mad), so Elena could be quite lucky and make it far. OTOH she could be tired and slip.

But I feel she will be motivated, this is her 1st title and I'm sure she wants to do well.

Good luck Elena :D

Yeah, Elena is so proud of AI title. She always says the title changes many things in her career.

I am sure now she has motivation on improving her serve and her game. She should know by now she could play with Serena equally only if she fixed that serve. I look at her bad loss in a positive way. If she had won over Serena or lost in 3 tough setters, she would have thought working on serve isn't important anymore. What she has is enough to be a champion. Now, she realizes what she needs to do. And, I am sure Olga can help her. Elena seems to respect Olga a lot. And, most importantly, she believes in her coach which is very important. I think she is on the right direction to be a better player.

Good news, Alyona isn't playing doubles this week. ;)

This will give her some more time to rest, and more time to concentrate on winning another title ;) :D

Yeah! I agree. Elena cannot play 2 matches a day. It's too much. AI is a one-week tournament. If she played both doubles and sigles, she would run out of gas in the important match like Nasdaq 100. It's a wise decision.

Mathijs
Apr 5th, 2004, 04:01 PM
that's a good decision, all focus on her titledefence :)

Elena will play Kostanic tomorrow. It's not gonna be that easy cuz Kostanic has played some matches here already. Elena needs to get used to the surface. However, I believe she can do it. This tournament is her good memory. She will do her best. Good luck, Elena. :kiss:

Must be her shoulder. I hope she will rest and not play next week. I would like her to do well at RG.

Nope wasn't her shoulder it was her right hip, she just strained it, i hope it isn't a bad injury :sad:

But let's think this way. If she had won the first set, she would have continued to play just to win the match. And, her injury must have been worse. I think this is the way it should be. She played a lot last week...8 matches including singles and doubles. She just came back from a break, so she was not supposed to play that much. I must say 'last week' cuz her first match in Miami was on Saturday, so 8 days 8 matches. Let's be positive and believe in Elena. I am sure after she has some rest and has time to practice her serve and stuff, she will come back strong like this time. Also, this is a good lesson...she said she realized if she wanna win a tournament she needed to be stronger. Next time, she will be okay! :)

Apr 7th, 2004, 10:24 PM
yeah that's what i believe well we got to have patience with her just read that she's gonna play Berlin but i'm not sure about it i could be wrong. it's maybe sad that she's not able to defend her title but i think it's even more sad that she's injured :sad:

BTW have you read my message in the AI forum at Lena's cheering thread i just wrote some things down and thanks again it was real nice today. I speak almost the whole day English, and i got an compliment for my English, that i speak English very well!! :D what are you studying at the moment it sounds like Mathematics or something like that???

Bye for now cuz i got to sleep, i have some things to do tomorrow and i am having a cold lately. So i got to have some sleep to prevent me from becoming ill. I think i have sweet dreams cuz a few of my fave players won today in different tournaments across the globe....... :D
