Why are you asking how she plays when you've seen her play already?

She is still involved in Aussie tennis - recently she was part of a 3 person panel who decided on the new Fed Cup captain for Australia.

Can't say I agree with her/their decision though ...

john alexander is a prick but he does know what he is doing. he has a lot of power and maybe women's tennis need someone like that.

ellwood was good for a while then played poorly then retired. it was weird.

i served her pasta once when i was working at a pasta shop after school

Annabel Ellwood plays very badly. It was always a laugh watching her spindly arms try not to bend backwards after hitting a backhand or forehand return from someone like a Mary Pierce.

she had a lot of potential...probablyt the most talented of the list of aussies in the 90s that werent successful making a good transition from junior elites to pro elite players.....

eg...Lisa McShea, Joanne Limmer, Annabel Ellwood, Siobham Drake Brockman, Trudi Musgrave.....etc.........

She's still quite young....just 26. She was pretty decent technically, but her lack of power and aggression made it tough for her against the higher ranked girls.

She still managed to get some pretty respectable results in her career

I agree with Fantastic. Ellwood really buckled under the power of the top 50 girls. I thought Ellwood was a reasonable player but she was of a thin build and never bulked up or became really fit..... she really lacked any sting in any of her shots thus she was a very mediocre player...
i have seen much more talented girls out there. I can imagine she was consistent/calm enough to become a good junior, but when push came to shove and she played the pro-girls she would never do any damage.

There's an article about Annabel in today's Canberra Times (Fri 7 Jan 05).

She's apparently working for Tennis Australia in a 'mothering' role - it's like being a surrogate coach and she's guiding the Australian players through the tourament. Her role is to provide support and fine tuning and to communicate with absent coaches.

I think that it's an EXCELLENT idea. Being on the tour must be an incredibly lonely and isolating experience. And Annabel has always seemed to be a lovely person.
