artikeltje over Els Callens in De Standaard: :)

Els Callens vandaag tegen Lindsay Davenport met pensioen-ambities

,,Deze loting is erg. Héél erg'', zucht Els Callens na een lichte maaltijd in het spelersrestaurant. Gelijk heeft ze. Lindsay Davenport is een schier onmogelijke opgave, zelfs nu ze door een chronische voetblessure aan haar brugpensionering begint te denken.

Els Callens (33) treft het andermaal niet. Op de Australian Open en Wimbledon sneuvelde ze dit jaar in de tweede ronde tegen de latere kampioene en toenmalige nummer één Serena Williams. Nu treft ze Davenport, derde reekshoofd en mondiale nummer vier.

Maar misschien geen wereldtopper op volle kracht. Davenport gaf zaterdag tegen Capriati op in de finale van New Haven. Ze heeft een neurologisch probleem aan de voet en die blessure wordt maar niet beter sinds ze op Roland Garros voor het eerst moest opgeven. ,,Misschien stop ik beter met tennissen. Er is nog een leven na mijn carrière'', opperde Davenport.

Biedt die blessure jou geen kansen, Els Callens? ,,Ik denk dat ze vooral uit voorzorg opgaf, om de US Open niet in het gedrang te brengen. Ik klopte in de Fed Cup ooit Arantxa Sanchez toen die in de top-vier stond, maar dat zegt weinig. Ik ben normaal kansloos. Tenzij ik Davenport aan het lopen krijg voor zij mij laat crossen. Maar ja...'' (fdpt)

Wimanna
Sep 1st, 2003, 11:48 AM
Q. Didn't face a breakpoint in a match against a woman who usually returns very well. You must be happy?

KIM CLIJSTERS: Yeah, definitely. Definitely felt like in a lot of my previous matches that I played Meghann I really tried to go for a lot of serves. She, a lot of times, prefers the faster serves.

Today I really tried to mix it up and make sure I put some slice on there. She made a lot of mistakes today definitely with her forehand return. I created a lot of opportunities for myself to win, to have short points and to keep them short.

No, I was really happy with the way I served. Yeah, definitely.

Okay, it was a tactic, and seems to be a good one :)
