Eleni is rankt ithink 23 this week, but she's going down if she continue to lose matches like this. How can she lose the second set 6-0, after winning in TB? :sad:

:eek: Poor Eleni! What's happening? Maybe it has something to do with her changing her coach......

Well, I saw her in Leipzig against Rittner, and she is overweight. She didn't move well at all and ran out of steam at the end, wasting a 4-0-lead in the 3rd set.

If you can't move properly indoors you have no chance.

I don't personally see an overweight person, but you say she struggles for fitness... :) I just think you have to be careful before saying things like "X is too fat" because weight can be such an issue when we have eating disorders and self-image problems in our society...

I also saw Eleni in Leipzig, SHE IS NOT TOO FAT!!! :)

Fat?? hardly. But oh well, thats your opinion GoDominique, you're entitled to it.

Poor Eleni has been shafted by having to play qualifying two weeks in a row. Its a high pressure situation, especially being top seed and knowing you can still make L.A, and obviously Eleni isnt used to this kind of pressure....I believe had she been in the main draws she could have done some damage as the 'underdog' so to speak, which is why Im annoyed she has been in qualies 2 weeks in a row. And yes I know she lost first round in Leipzig and Moscow, but those were way tight matches, who knows what could have happened had she won just one of those.

But GoDominique makes a fair point about playing indoors I guess. Yes, we all know she isnt the fittest of players, and to play long matches indoors you need to be quite fit. Eleni's record indoors is abysmal (losing to Camille Pin this year rings a bell), and the players she has lost to the last couple weeks (with the exception of Dechy) are players she should be beating. But, its happened, and we'll just move on to next week :)

Fiona, nice words :) very true.

OK, sorry to Eleni-fans, 'fat' is a bit exaggerated, but losing some points certainly wouldn't do her any harm.
It was the first time I saw her in Leipzig, so I don't know if she always looks like that. Frankly, I wasn't that impressed with her, considering her ranking, I expected more.

lol, dont you mean losing some 'weight' ;)

GoDominique
Oct 13th, 2002, 02:53 PM
LOL, no, I wanted to say 'some pounds'. :o

Thank you, Terry! :)

It's okay, GoDominique... I think I can be a bit too sensitive when it comes to weight issues anyway. :o Better luck to Eleni next tournament! :D
