Re: The Evgenia Linetskaya Thread

Does anybody know what happened to her in the 2nd set?
I surely hope she doesn't "loose it" mentally.

Re: The Evgenia Linetskaya Thread

As I understand it, she can not play for Israel in Fed Cup until 2009.

Where did you get this information from.
But,actually, I don't think this limitation as any impact. If she will continue to play ( I hope so), she will not be in real form until this date.

If she will be able to produce what she did a few years ago, she togeteh with Shahr would make a great team.

The following is my source:
LINETSKAYA: TO HELL AND BACK
The once troubled Evgenia Linetskaya is back, competing in her first Slam since the '05 US Open. She went down 7-6(8), 6-0 to Anne Kremer in the first round and clearly is lacking in conditioning and is a bit rusty, but the one she can still rip it off the ground.

The Russian and her parents took Israeli citizenship six months ago and she now playing and training under that flag, although she can’t play Fed Cup until 2009.
Recall that Linetskaya's father, Simon, and her former coach, Joe Guiliano, were tossed off the tour at the end of 2005. Her dad was arrested in San Diego in August of '05 and accused of physically abusing Evgenia, and then in the fall, Guliano was accused by Linetskaya and some other players of abusing them and was handed a lifetime suspension. Simon was given a two-year suspension.

After upsetting Amelie Mauresmo at Indian Wells in the spring of 2005, the Linetskaya cracked the Top 40, but it all went down hill from there. Somehow, after Linetskaya separated from her dad and coach, she managed to play a few matches in the fall of 2005, but had lost her form and confidence. In 2006, she went down to Australia in January and played three matches, losing them all. Then last year, she played a few ITF events, but kept getting injured.

During many of those off periods, the 21-year-old was soul searching. But now she’s made up with her parents and said that the incident made their relationship stronger.

“There were things together –injuries, my relationship with my parents and the coach that put a lot of pressure that I didn’t want to try because there were a lot of negative things connected with the tennis," she said to a handful of reporters of her time away. “It was really hard for me and first I could not get it right and thinking it was my fault and then life went on and new things came up. I just looked around and saw that life is beautiful.” Linetskaya is writing poetry again, likes living in Israel quite a bit and seems at peace with herself and had a good deal to say about her recovery process over the past few years.

“It didn’t feel nice when you are on top and are dropping but it depends on your attitude,” she said. “Life isn’t just about tennis and there are a lot of things around and when I stopped playing it opened my eyes to a lot of things outside of tennis. It gave me more knowledge of life. Sometimes I had thoughts I would do something else, but I always thought that tennis was something I had a feeling for. Even when I was doing something else I had thoughts of tennis coming into my head. I wanted to come back and it’s something I needed to do. I missed the feeling of the game.”

Linetskaya’s parents are renting an apartment in Tel Aviv and trying to find some work. She says that her father will no longer be organizing things for her on the tour, but hopes that her parents will one day come to watch her play again. She’s only 21, but very much her own woman now, which she wasn’t before.

“I learned there are a lot of things that I can cope with myself without relying on different people because before, I was always searching for help around me. Then I found the source and power is inside of me and I can change a lot myself. I found that attitude is very important because sometimes there are things you see negatively and they snowball, but once you change your attitude and look from a different point of view and think positive about your life, things get positive.”

When asked whether she was still angry with Guiliano, she replied: “I don’t think about him. I don’t where he is and what he's doing.” Linetskaya has gone back to Russia to see her grandmother and pets and brought one cat back with her to Israeli, where she also bought a rabbit and took in a stray cat. She lit up when discussing her pets. “The cat loves the rabbit and he loves her and is always trying to make love with her,” she said.

Due to a left wrist injury, she’s only been playing for a few weeks, but came to Australia anyway because she thought that her entry exemption was about to expire. Then she found out that it won’t until July. She’s entered Pattaya City and is planning on playing a few more small events before she enters the bigger tournaments again.

“My tennis goal stay the same: I want to be No. 1 and win the Grand Slams,” she said. "The level is there; it just needs time.”

Re: The Evgenia Linetskaya Thread

Nice to finally hear something from her. When I heard about her playing in the Israeli Ch. it was a very pleasant surprise, really made my day.
Most of last year is still a blur though - the unknown (until now) type of injury, where was she, and especially announcing retirement before starting (hopefully) a full-time comeback in the space of a month (see the top of page 5).
