I have to say that yesterday I saw one of the biggest matches in Olympics at Tennis! Lena Daniilidou lost the first set by Magdalena from Boulgary but with her work won the 2 set. But in 3 set(the last one) after 3 - 0 Lena had an awful pain at her leg! I thought that she couldn't continue to the game but Lena continued. And not only that but after a great try, with almost one leg, Lena won the game!!!!
I am very proud,as a Greek person, that Lena did that!!! Whatever happen to today match Lena is in our hearts!!!
Lena go, go go!!! We are with you!!!

Yes! I'm from Greece and we have 10 channels(3 free and the others which is paid) and we can watch almost all the Olympic Games. But here Lena is one of the most popular players in all the Greek Team so everyone watching her, so Do I!
She is from my city too(Thessaloniki if you know)!
I hope the best for her today!

Hello everybody,
I just returned from the Olympics.
I watched the first round match of Lena and her doubles against Amelie/Mary http://www.tennnis.com/phpbb/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif
The support of the Greek public was great and I contributed to this by raising banner, shouting all the time.. http://www.tennnis.com/phpbb/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif
My friends told me that the Greek TV showed me cheering..:cool:
Of course, the highlight was her second round match against Maleeva. Lena started feeling pain in her leg, she fall down more than 2 times, crying,grining from the pain...
The crowd was holding its breath, feeling that she was going to withdraw.
Her expressions were full of pain but she didn't want to give it up.When she won she fall down sending a kiss to the sky (god maybe)
As she said in the interview afterwards, she risked and continue playing because she didn't want to disapoint the thousants of her compatriots who came to see her.
How great personality she is! http://www.tennnis.com/phpbb/images/smiles/sloppy.gif
Her efforts were shown again and again by the greek TV and I think she earned a place in the heart of the greeks for her determination and devotion to her country.
In her second round against Myskina, she played with risk again because doctors advised her not to play.All the greek medical team was treating her all night and day before the match..
And yes, she was the one who played better in the first set and had the break to close the set, but some mistakes didn't let her.
In an interview today, she said she was pleased becaused she made greeks feeling so proud of her and her father said that after the loss of the first set he was praying Lena to lose the second set, because a third set would damage more her leg (he is a doctor).

Yo acercaba a ella y charlamos un poco.Era muy adorable http://www.tennnis.com/phpbb/images/smiles/icon_lol.gif
I also saw (and took pictures) many other players including Martina, Dechy ,Testud and my favorite male Roger Federer http://www.tennnis.com/phpbb/images/smiles/vb_icon46.gif

Whouuuuu Odysseus,

You have luchy to be in Greece, I would have liked to live that.
In Roland Garros Eleni it was pain, it was not serious, but it had cried, I was the only one to encourage it (with 1 or 2 people with whom I had asked to encourage it with me).
Several times during the match it looked at me, it wanted to give up but it continued for the 3 or 4 people who encouraged it, Eleni is fantastic...
What it did yesterday and today shows that it is large a champion... a friend with me which is fan of Mary Pierce said to me that now he would look at Eleni differently because it deserves a very large respect.

I hope that it will be able to play has the US Open one and that it will make a good result, it has the talent for...

Odysseus yo se que Eleni es muy adorable :lol: :drool: :hearts: :hearts: :hearts: :hearts: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :tape:

Y para mi porque no hablas frances, mientras que hablas espanol para Gabrielle y otros, soy celosa... :lol: :lol: :lol: ;) :kiss: and :kiss: Gabs, Ula and Eleniiiiiiiiiii ( :kiss: :kiss: :kiss: :kiss: :kiss: :kiss: for Eleni :lol: )

Odysseus, what a great story. I hope to see yor photos of Lena and Roger (my number one player since Rafter retired). It's funny 'cause I read that most people call Eleni Lena. I may be one of a few who always call her Eleni, maybe that's why she remembers me ;)
