No thread for sweet Alyona? :( I want one! :D


She's been quite stagnating in the rankings over the last 2 years, but well... No hope lost, step by step. ;)


Wishing you the best for 2012, Alyona!

(She has a Formspring account, too! http://www.formspring.me/Ellona - but latest answers are quite old...).

Another meh year for Alyona. :sad:

Her latest results:


She's been stuck in Top 500 for 3 years now, and I feel like she can do much better than that. But (even though she looks absolutely gorgeous), it looks like there's a lot to be done on fitness for instance.

A few recent pics of her:

Alyona Sotnikova it has been eliminated in quarters of final by the Hungarian Vanda Lukacs: 7-6, 7-5. Sotnikova has fought for the victory but the defeat in the tie break of the first set has complicated very much the match. In Him Havre achieves his fourth consecutive third parties of final.
In approximately two hours I will look for a new title of doubles together with his pair Shinikova. They are the favorites before the Dutches Van de Velde and Versteeg.
