View Full Version : 7 Russians in top 20, never achieved by any country other than USA.

Elena Bovina clinches top 20 ranking as Elena Dementieva defeated Amy Frazier.
I believe this is a record as I think even France didnt have this many top 20 at one time.
US is the only country that did so. And now it's Russia. Maybe the Americans are going out soon.:).

Lena plays the winner of Lisa Raymond (USA) vs. Eleni Daniilidou (GRE).

Jul 26th, 2004, 09:27 PM
A very good win for Lena. :D

Jul 26th, 2004, 10:23 PM
Yes, Bovina! Very good win. Schiavone has had a solid year, and she's a tough player... gets everything back and can move the ball around with a lot of topsin. I hope Elena can stay healthy for the rest of the year. If she gets some matches under her belt and works on her mental strength (today's three set win is a good start!), she can make a big impact on the tour.

Keep it up, Elena! :kiss:

Good Job Elena!!!!!! :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

Jul 26th, 2004, 10:46 PM

:sad: Francesca

Jul 27th, 2004, 01:22 AM
Ouch :( :sad:

Francesca had lots of points to defend and she and Elena have no lost love for each other so this one has to smart. Wonder if Fran let go right away on the handshake? ;)

Go get em in Montreal, Franny :hug:

Jul 27th, 2004, 02:52 AM
Udachi Lena :)

Well done Elena B!

Pity it wasn't in straight sets...but a win's a win, and I'm very glad you won this match :bounce:

Jul 28th, 2004, 09:35 PM
Well done, after scoring a top 20 win agianst Francesca, she now bumps another Italian out of top 20.

Jul 28th, 2004, 09:50 PM
Wow, Elena! :hearts:

Keep it up. Get back to the top 20 and stay there, please. You have so much game... Just need to keep the head on tight, and get some consistent wins over quality opponents. :D Take it to Serena in the next round!

Eleni :crying2: I know hardcourts don't seem to be your surface, but I was hoping you could make this a tight three setter at least. Maybe you could hire Pat Etcheberry to help with your fitness. I think if Eleni were in better shape and more consistent with her serve, she would be less prone to the patches of bad results she seems to have. I don't quite understand why she doesn't do as well on 'modern surfaces,' as I've heard some tennis analysts say of her. But it's ridiculous to me that Eleni isn't at least top 25, if not higher, with her talent. :bigcry:

Chanda and Amy will have to upset Nastya and Amelie first to catchup.
Amelie is gone, and Chanda will take care of Myskina.
