I guess the first round's not too bad for the singles...though there are players I would prefer her to play so early on. Having said that, it's better than being drawn against a seed like pretty much every slam last year!?

It would be nice for me if she can last until 3rd round because then I might be able to see her play again ;)

Go Eleni!

Best of luck,Eleni!!!! :kiss: It would be cool if she beat Safarova in round 2,but let's not get ahead,first is Dulko.Pame!!!!!

Time to improve GS statistics and Wimby is the best opportunity especially when she's not facing number 1 seed in 1st round :)

I would be more confident if she was facing No 1 seeded player. She usually is playing much better against seeded players. It looks like she can reach 3rd round, let's hope for the best. Good luck Eleni!!!

I thought everything is lost at the beginning of set no. 3, but Eleni started an unbelievable comeback. Anyhow, these kind of matches can be continued it reminds us also of the way greek dramas are constructed. :) :worship:

Play suspended only at this court!
God knows why lol
I know it's a bit late to fill you in now, but I was there and half the court was in the light and half was in the shade. Gisela was playing on the shaded end at the time, slipped on the grass and then complained the grass was to wet to play. After the ref inspecting the court and a short discussion (during which Eleni offered to play on the "wet" end because she in the zone :cool: & wanted to finish :lol: ) they decided to suspend play. :awww:

I can't stand that Safarova either- seems like nobody can :lol: she is playin a brilliant game against Jankovic now though, I hope Jelena gets her in the third set!
