I saw the doubles draw. It's tough. 1st round is winable but in 2nd they might face number 1 seeds ...

Hi all,

Sorry I haven't been about - new work since september so I've been pretty busy. I seems to have lost track of all things tennis this year and I aim to get back on track as of now.

I'm just watching the scoreboard for Eleni's match...she's doing ok at the moment.

Let's go!

Eleni lost 5-7,6-0,3-6 :sad: A strange result I must say. So much of doing well in singles :sad:

Gutted - she lost in three.

She was 3-0 up in the first and lost that set, then she won the second 6-0, and in the final set she was also 3-0 up and then lost. What's going on? I have a feeling that she was playing better than her opponant for most of the match but now and again had a wobble. Unfortunately these "wobbles" cost big time. I know she has plenty of doubles to go at, so lets hope she does well there.

The grass season is upon us and we all know she loves the grass. I'm off to the DFS Classic as always so hopefully I will see her there again.

It's true she has still ladies doubles and mixed doubles left but it's only doubles and we wouldn't get to see her on TV even if she was in the finals...Grass is ahead, agree but she must be more consistant.

I never though a day would come on which a male Greece tennis player went further in main draw of any GS than Eleni did....

- Vania King (USA)[12]/Jelena Kostanic Tosic (CRO)[12] vs. Emmanuelle Gagliardi (SUI)/Francesca Schiavone (ITA)
- Nicole Pratt (AUS) vs. Lucie Safarova (CZE)[25]

Not sure how it is at GS but recently in doubles 3rd set is like a tiebreak played until 10 points (instead of 7) or two points advantage.
