report about the last match by Paule22 :
I thought it was over for today but then I saw Bovina playing Daniilidou. It was getting already dark but the played until 8:30. Bovinas style reminds me a bit of Clijsters. She is getting all the balls as well, but plays them back so slowly and easy that after a while Daniilidou was able to make the point or the error. That's why Daniilidou won the second set. If Bovina is able to create a weapon, she will be Top 10. Daniilidou was claiming in the beginning of set three that she is not able to see the ball anymore and she wants to stop the match. But Bovina said she can see the ball and wants to go on, so they played and Elena was getting that match quite easily in set 3.
Well, I checked all the websites for upcoming USA tournies and so far nothing. Soon-to-be events like Cincinatti in the USA don't have Eleni on their entry list...and other events that follow cinci either have yet to be updated from last year, or are a teir 1 and 2 which Eleni may have to qualify for if there is a great interest in the main draw from top 20/30 players.
I will keep checking and update anything here....hopefully the lack of news is nothing to do with the shin problem she had at wimbledon in the first round
Any fans in Greece got any news from their local press???? That would be helpful
No news from the greek press either but they usually write about it a few days before the tournaments. But I do have an interview of Eleni a while after her thump surgery with some great pictures that you would love. Anyone interested in the pictures just let me know and I will e-mail them to you.
hey guizzy - I would be interested in reading that interview and seeing the pictures. The trouble with being a fan in the UK is that there is next to zero info about Eleni....infact, I got my regular tennis mag today and it has news and info about Wimbledon and yet little mention about Eleni. There was a bit of info about her beating #7 & RG champ, Justine Henin-Hardenne....but really not much, just a big picture of Justine and a mere mention of Eleni as if it were nothing It dissapoints me, but it also lacked any info about my fave player Lindsay Davenport - and she was a finalist...LOL
Probably best emailing me the article & pics to firstname.lastname@example.org (I persume the article is in english?)
