Oct 25th, 2008, 08:41 PM
I don't know :sobbing: Hasn't played for a long time, and doesn't seem to any entry list lately.

I'll try to contact her brother on facebook..

My friend said that he bumped into her las weekend and said she looked amazingly good and hot :) and Salome told him that she is going to be playing again next year. My friend said that she looked really happy and fit.... :D
i'll be glad to see her back... i really enjoy seeing her play...:D I think she can still get on top...

Dec 19th, 2008, 04:27 AM
:yeah: :hearts: Very glad to hear that. ;)

Hot? :unsure: I haven't come across any new pics though, so she might have changed. :D

Dec 24th, 2008, 02:23 PM
Great news :) but doubt.. can she?

Dec 24th, 2008, 02:34 PM
She is on the entrylist of 25k Boca, first ITF of the year. :) I really hope she has a nice season, definitely wasting a lot of potential.

ლალამიზე თემა აქ უნდა გავხსნა? თუ არის უკვე ?

morokoeli roa? albat aq :shrug:

Jan 8th, 2009, 07:59 AM
Why she withdrew? :(

Jan 8th, 2009, 07:01 PM
She did? :o

Well, let's hope she's getting ready for the new season even better. :angel:

Well, you're friend was wrong unfortunately as she has retired. :sad:

Gigi. :hug:

is there a link?

Feb 13th, 2009, 02:36 AM
She's currently 71st ALT in $50,000 Clearwater, USA:scratch:

Feb 13th, 2009, 03:08 PM
Really? :spit: Her brother told me on facebook :speakles:

Feb 13th, 2009, 06:50 PM
^Maybe she will play a few more tourneys:shrug:
If so, hopefully she can do really good, so she can realize that she should stay on tour:)

Feb 14th, 2009, 04:27 AM
Yeah but what I heard is that she's really lazy and is totally wasting a big talent. :( I mean, she did reach 50k finals and was in top 260, so she has the game, but she can't find it for like 5 years in a row? :unsure:

Feb 14th, 2009, 04:33 AM
^It happens to a lot of Greeks too :sad:. Anastasia Kontratevidi was ranked 524 in October 2007, when she was 17. Now, she is 19 and unranked. According to the ITF, she is still active, but she hasn't played in 10 months:sad:. Evangelia Roussi was ranked very high (if I remember correctly, top 400) and she was 19 or so. She hasn't been ranked for years now. However, she played a few Greek nationals in the Spring and an ITF in Greece in the Fall. It looks like she will come back, but she is 28, so it's now or never for her. Hopefully, Salome can make a comeback earlier than Evangelia did.

Feb 14th, 2009, 04:36 AM
:yeah: Though imagining myself in her place, it must be so hard, losing to players you used to crush a few years ago must've broken her down a lot.

Mar 5th, 2009, 07:13 PM
Salome is on the ALT list for the 25k in Hammond, LA, USA:scratch::woohoo:

Mar 6th, 2009, 10:28 AM
I guess she commited a long time ago. She is definitely retired. ;) :awww:
