good luck Lena ;) :D

Oct 31st, 2004, 09:30 PM
Finding her form in the later stages of the season. Still in with a slim chance to make the AUS-Open. Think she'll make a GS-Qual next year. Best chances are the US-Open. Elena deserves some credit to do it the hard way. :D :)

good luck in maindraw now :)

Nov 1st, 2004, 07:04 PM
Well done. Lena keeps her slim chance going for reaching the Aus-Open. For the rest year nothing to defend. Has hardly points to defend till the month of September. Needs a 25 K win and a 25 K final to make it to the Aus-Open.

Nov 1st, 2004, 08:58 PM

Thanks! :D

Nov 2nd, 2004, 04:32 PM
A couple more wins in Quebec could be just enough..That'll put Lena in a fav. position the make the AUS-Open Qual. Considering the form she's in, she's not likely to have first round after first round def. for the rest of the season. Plus a few higher ranked players than Lena are probably going to retire.

Nov 2nd, 2004, 05:30 PM
Lena lost lack of experience at a higher level.

Nov 2nd, 2004, 05:44 PM
Lena :sad: :( 36 26 loss :(

Nov 2nd, 2004, 09:15 PM
thought elena might be able to make it a tough match maybe even have a shot at winning it, lack of exprience i guess. but it was great for her to qualify.

Nov 2nd, 2004, 10:03 PM

Nov 2nd, 2004, 10:57 PM
thanx for the pic elena is :hearts:

Nov 5th, 2004, 10:54 PM
yeah thanx heaps!! man elena is hot!

Nov 22nd, 2004, 04:51 PM
Elena V. keeps her slim chance alive to make the AUS-Open Qual. Needs to play Pruhonice next week. She made the Main Draw of the 25 K of Opole.
Pretty sure she'll make it to the GS-Qual next year. US-Open most likely.

Nov 22nd, 2004, 05:44 PM
KV....... Pruhonice was moved to 15 Nov

go Lena ;) :D
good luck in maindraw in Opole :)

Nov 24th, 2004, 02:21 PM
Lena won her 1st rd 63 62 vs Topalova :yeah: :D :)
well done Lena :)

Lena plays Sromova next
good luck Lena :) :hug:

Nov 24th, 2004, 04:01 PM
Good win. Don't think she'll be playing next week. She's on the list the week after. Lena now in a fav. position to reach the RG-Qual. A few good indoor results are needed. GO Lena.

Nov 25th, 2004, 05:42 PM
Best results this year were indoors, hopefully, she'll be playing a large number of indoor tournaments in the future. GO Lena, she's getting closer and closer to the RG-Qual.

Dec 14th, 2004, 08:05 PM
Lena added five more points on the ranking by reaching the 2nd round of the Bergamo 50 K. A few points away from her best ever ranking and closing the gap on he GS-Qual Cut-off.

Dec 16th, 2004, 02:12 AM
Lena bt Nemeckova 76 64 :yeah: :D
another good win :)

she's upto #258
good ending to 2004, another win would see her in top 250

Dec 16th, 2004, 05:45 AM
nice work elena!!!

Dec 16th, 2004, 08:07 AM
well done Elena :)

Dec 16th, 2004, 05:35 PM
Lena took the first step, def. a top 150 ranked player. Getting closer to the top 250 and in fav.postion for RG-Qual. :D Next step should be def. C. Castano, on any surface apart from Red Clay.

Dec 16th, 2004, 10:59 PM
well done elena!

Dec 18th, 2004, 01:32 AM
elena lost to i think ani in 3. was hoping for a win but she got to the quarters so it wasnt too bad.

Feb 21st, 2005, 04:05 PM
Lena won her 1st match of 2005 :D :) in her 2nd event

50k qualies St Paul
bt Jewel Peterson quite easily

next she plays Tatsiana Uvarova
good luck Lena :) time to build up pts before you have to defend.

Feb 21st, 2005, 06:46 PM
Main thing done :)

Lena i was waiting for too long when yopu will be in top 200 at least

but i can wait a little more if you wil not throw tennis away as Syssoeva or others

Go Lena

Apr 15th, 2005, 08:26 PM
Well done Lena, didn't expect her to go that far. Top 250 calling.

Wants to good rep you and TBE but i need to spread some arnd before..... ugy rules...sorry

Apr 16th, 2005, 02:51 PM
Keep it up Elena! Take this title!

Apr 18th, 2005, 08:48 PM
KV, Lena is a very good player, but sometimes she doesn't trust to herself

Wants to good rep you and TBE but i need to spread some arnd before..... ugy rules...sorryI know Lena is a way better all courter than C. Castano. Did well in Italy on Red Clay, happily not many typical clay courters were there. Still rather she plays the 25 K. of Prague or the northern part of Europe on Red Clay.than the Southern part of Europe.

Apr 19th, 2005, 08:58 PM
Lena won her 1st rd match today in 25k Bari
beat and unranked Italian WC easily

go Lena ;) good luck in r2 :)

Apr 21st, 2005, 07:35 PM
Good result, main thing done. Onto GS-Qual, a few good results are still needed on Clay not on grass to make Wimbly. US-Open Qual looks most likely to make.

Apr 22nd, 2005, 04:57 PM
lost in final set TB to Abramovic :( :(

next Lena is in Warsaw
she plays qualies vs Adriana Barna
good luck Lena :)

Apr 22nd, 2005, 06:56 PM
Unlucky to play the in form I. Abramovic. Ranking wise I. Abramovic was expected to win. Now on to Warsaw, convinced the clay of Warsaw suits her game more than Italy.

Apr 23rd, 2005, 11:02 AM
Lena won her 1st match 63 76 vs Ad Barna

well done Lena ;)
now she plays Anna Chakvetadze

best of luck Lena :)

Apr 23rd, 2005, 02:15 PM
great win Lena :yeah: :woohoo: :woohoo: but too bad she has to play against Anna C, i can't cheer for her now :( :( :( :( good luck all the same Lenka :kiss: :bigclap:

Apr 23rd, 2005, 03:14 PM
Again main thing done. She's done it the hard way, just like this Polish tournaments on red clay. It's way different from the southern part of Europe. Attacking tennis is more rewarded. :D

Apr 23rd, 2005, 03:25 PM
Maria K. broke Anna C. 5 times in Miami.
Go after Anna's serve.

Apr 24th, 2005, 12:17 PM
Lena did it the hard way, playing a Tier 2. Played well at Warsaw, afterall Anna's expected to win. Progress made on Red Clay, plus she deserves to play Wimbly.

Well done Lena, could make it to the Wimbly Qual. ATM, for her sake some players withdraw who struggle on grass. Let's hope it happens, like it's in the past. :)

May 17th, 2005, 01:08 PM

At least she reached the 25 K. final. Not too good vs. Haidner. Nevertheless Lena deserves to play the GS-Qual.

She faces Ludmila Skavronskaia in the 1st round

Shame Lena didn't play Torun. Have a feeling she'd have done better at Torun than Cuneo and Fano.

Jul 6th, 2005, 06:49 PM
Another players who stands a very good chance to make her GS-Qual debut. Make sure of making more than 1.5 point before the US-Open Qual cut-off. :D

Jul 8th, 2005, 07:58 PM
Quali Draw In Here!!

Lena playing Modena. Good luck then! At least only first round exits and an injury can prevent her from the US-Open Qual. Don't have a good feeling about Lena at Modena.

Lena's previous two tournaments in Italy have been disappointing, so let's hope that she can turn that around here.

She's not in the nicest section of the draw, but I think she is going to be okay.

Jul 10th, 2005, 11:26 AM

go Lena :kiss: ;)

Aug 14th, 2005, 02:47 PM
Some observations posted by Fingon in the GM forum: I guess by Lena you mean Vesnina, she played well, she hits the ball very flat and deep, it worked against Gagliardi because Gagliardi couldn't match the power and needed to come to the net to win points, but I don't know how that high-risk strategy will work against other players.

Aug 14th, 2005, 02:50 PM
One of her best ever perf. :D :bounce:

Aug 15th, 2005, 11:46 AM
Here's a report from Lena's 2nd round match that was posted in the GM forum by 416_Man: Fujiwara, on the other hand, is probably one of the best hard court players in the qualifying. I remembered seeing her qualify for so many of the California events and wanted to be sure to watch a glimpse of her again. The crowd which was packed for a court with only lawn chairs as stands, was pro Vesnina. SHe's a great Russian player, but is atleast a step down from someone of Safarova, but she too likes to pretend the ball is her ex boyfriend and whack it for all it's got. It worked for a while and crowd was loving her, and she's a very vocal person. Swearing over line calls, questioning calls, and that pissed Fujiwara to the edge. She pulled it out, by being aggressive, but not ridiculous aggression like Vesnina whacking the ball as hard as she can after the first 2 hits. Merely a case of experience. 10 minutes after, Vesnina was still there signing autographs for all of her loyal cheerers, everyone begging her for a picture, even though her face was not nearly as glowing with energy from on court. As her cart drove down into the distance her face was suddenly red with her tears rolling down. Poor, girl.

Aug 15th, 2005, 11:58 AM
Fair reports to read. Afterall Fujiwara's the fav. to win. Match could've gone either way. Lena's definately progressing from last year.

Aug 15th, 2005, 08:11 PM
I watched a match with Vesnina in stockholm, she qualifinal....she is good and have some wepons but just to inconsistent. When she get a consistent level she will be dangerous.

Aug 16th, 2005, 05:41 PM
