Re: The Eirini Paniyiri (Eirini Georgatou Cheering Thread)

She's turning 25 on Sunday and it's been over three years since her last match
Actually on Facebook her birthday is in January but ITF site says February so I'm not sure what to believe but people were writing happy birthday to her a few weeks ago on Facebook

She also posted a pic from US Open 2010 a few days ago and Ekshibarova (who was actually commenting in Greek which was surprising) and Botto commented on it telling her to come back but she didn't say anything back
Such a shame she hasn't played since she was 21, and she was having a pretty good season being in the top 200 with only 18 tournaments played

I really hope she comes back and I still have some hope seeing that a lot of players who retire young tend to return to tour. One day...

On the previous page in this thread someone wrote that she was teaching at a tennis club near where that poster lives

I also remember seeing on Facebook that she was finishing up her studies so she probably graduated by now, but I never check Facebook anymore and Eirini never posted much either

I saw her 3 times and the last time I saw her she was 21, I definitely didn't think it would be the last time

Eirini turned 24 just a few days ago!

...

Also comment on this thread or send me a PM to let me know you read the message and then I will delete it after since this is Eirini's personal business from Facebook and I don't think she would like me posting it on here

A video of her training in slow motion at Fed Cup in Israel in 2011:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/1306246...-8NhVqX-8Nm1hJ
The caption says its Papamichail but it's actually Eirini, I'm completely sure

In August, Eirini went to the city of Sitia on the island of Crete for a week to promote the sport of tennis there








Eirini is the one in the white outfit at the beginning of this video, so nice to see her out there on the courts again


A video from the event where you can see during some parts of it that Eirini is volleying with a young boy.


Mixed doubles exhibition in Sitia. Eirini is the one in the black and gray outfit, easily the best player out there in this video

Someone commented on this video on YouTube saying Eirini's forehand that was called out was really in

Some points and interview


She basically said that in tennis you need to have a lot of support, etc. *And then she talked about the event



I'm surprised that there was so much publicity at this event, and it's really good that even through she doesn't play tournaments anymore, she is stating close to the tennis courts
