Thanks for the in-person report, Julia! <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">
I think she must be playing better this week, beating Alex Stevenson so handily; maybe she was just having a bad day when you saw her. I know she is not the fastest, but I keep hoping she will be the next Lindsay Davenport, who has done so well without any great speed around the court.
But it took Lindsay YEARS to develop the big serve that took her to the top. I just hope Elena has good coaching so she can improve these weaknesses over time. <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">
