Re: The Eirini Paniyiri (Eirini Georgatou Cheering Thread)

You forgot one tournament
25K Clemont-Ferrand:
R1: Eirini Georgatou GRE d. Ana Vrljic CRO 6-1 6-3
R2: (4) Elitsa Kostova BUL d. Eirini Georgatou GRE 3-6 6-4 7-6

Hopefully she can gain some easy points next week at 25K Istanbul
She should play weaker tournaments and gain points and confidence, and she will be 4th seeded in Istanbul so that's a start

Re: The Eirini Paniyiri (Eirini Georgatou Cheering Thread)

Eirini has an official website now
I didn't know
It's still new and kind of un-organized, but it has some cool info there

http://www.eirinigeorgatou.com/index.php

So strange how it says you can follow her on facebook, twitter, and tumblr but it doesn't give links to her pages for those, just the homepages of those sites

It's also really cool how her sister was a diver for Greece in the Olympics

Re: The Eirini Paniyiri (Eirini Georgatou Cheering Thread)

Eirini gave an interview to tennisnews.gr on Monday
http://tennisnews.gr/net-stories/pre...rini-georgatou

"Αχτίδα φωτός για την ελληνική αντισφαίριση"


Συνέντευξη της Ειρήνης Γεωργάτου στον Νικο Γαβαλα

Κι όμως,υπάρχει ελπίδα. Σε ορισμένες πτυχές του, ο ελληνικός αθλητισμός μάς δείχνει έναν διαφορετικό δρόμο, δίνοντας σε όλους μας τη δυνατότητα να ελπίζουμε σε καλύτερες ημέρες. Ειδικά, όταν βλέπουμε νεαρούς αθλητές να πηγαίνουν κόντρα στις αντιξοότητες της εποχής, προκειμένου να κάνουν το όνειρό τους πραγματικότητα και τη χώρα τους υπερήφανη. Μία τέτοια περίπτωση είναι η 21χρονη τενίστρια Ειρήνη Γεωργάτου, η οποία με μία βαλίτσα γυρίζει τον κόσμο ώστε να είναι παρούσα σε μεγάλα επαγγελματικά τουρνουά και να βελτιώνει τη θέση της στην παγκόσμια κατάταξη.

Το 2008 ήταν νούμερο 618, το 2009 βρέθηκε στο 274, πέρυσι στο 228, ενώ φέτος κατάφερε να «σπάσει το φράγμα» των 200 πρώτων θέσεων και ν’ αναρριχηθεί έως την 175η! Και η κούρσα της προς την πρώτη κατοστάδα συνεχίζεται. «Ο στόχος μου είναι να παίξω όσο καλύτερα μπορώ και να πέσω κάτω απ’ το νούμερο 100. Το μεγάλο μου όνειρο είναι να εκπροσωπήσει την Ελλάδα στους Ολυμπιακούς Αγώνες. Είναι τιμή μου να εκπροσωπώ την Ελλάδα σε αυτούς τους δύσκολες καιρούς. Πρέπει να βάλουμε τα παιδιά στο τένις και γενικότερα στον αθλητισμό. Ετσι θα τα κρατήσουμε μακριά απ’ τους κινδύνους της εποχής», λέει η Γεωργάτου.

Μάλιστα, δεν χάνει τον προσανατολισμό της παρά το γεγονός πως η πατρίδα μάς «πληγώνει» όλους καθημερινά, αλλά και εξαιτίας των μεγάλων αδυναμιών του τένις στην Ελλάδα: «Αν και διαθέτουμε πολλές εγκαταστάσεις, δεν τις εκμεταλλευόμαστε. Δεν έχουμε εθνικό κέντρο αντισφαίρισης και σύστημα για να βοηθηθούν οι αθλητές. Παράλληλα, πρέπει να γίνουν περισσότερα τουρνουά». Επιμένει δε να δίνει τη μάχη της, συνήθως μονάχη της με μεγάλο χορηγό, την οικογένειά της: «Η καθημερινότητά μας έχει το ίδιο πρόγραμμα: ξενοδοχείο, γήπεδο, ξενοδοχείο. Οταν δεν έχω αγώνες, κάνω προπόνηση για έξι ώρες. Ομως, είναι δική μας επιλογή».


Απ’ την αρχή της χρονιάς, αγωνίστηκε στις τέσσερις γωνιές του κόσμου: Κίνα, Αυστραλία, Ηνωμένες Πολιτείες της Αμερικής, Ισπανία, Νότιο Αφρική, Τσεχία, Γαλλία, Μεγάλη Βρετανία, Δανία, Αζερμπαϊτζάν, Ουζμπεκιστάν. Πρόγραμμα που φαντάζει με Γολγοθά. Μάλιστα, έπαιξε και στα τέσσερα γκραν σλαμ (Οπεν Αυστραλίας, Ρολάν Γκαρός, Γουίμπλεντον, Αμερικάνικο όπεν), πετυχαίνοντας νίκες στον πρώτο προκριματικό γύρο του γαλλικού και του αμερικάνικου όπεν. «Η νίκη επί της Κούτσοβα στο Παρίσι, μία τενίστρια που βρίσκεται στο νούμερο 100, είναι ίσως η σημαντικότερη που έχω πετύχει έως τώρα», προσθέτει η Γεωργάτου, η οποία φαντάζει ως η διάδοχος της Λένας Δανιηλίδου.

Στο «φινάλε», θέλει να κάνει ειδική αναφορά στους «συμμάχους» της: «Πλέον ανήκω στον όμιλο Αντισφαίρισης Αθηνών, που είναι ο καλύτερος στην Ελλάδα. Εκεί, με βοηθούν οι παλιοί πρωταθλητές, Σόλων Πέππας και Νίκος Ροβάς, ενώ τους τελευταίους μήνες έχω μαζί μου στο εξωτερικό και τον προπονητή μου, τον Αλέξανδρο Λεβεντέρη. Να ευχαριστήσω και τον γυμναστή μου, Ανδρέα Παρμπαρή και τον εκπρόσωπό μου απ’ την εταιρεία A.D.global managment, Τάσο Δανιά. Μα πάνω απ’ όλους την οικογένειά μου που με στηρίζει διαρκώς».

I don't have time to translate it so here is the link to the translated article and if any of you need help understanding something (google translator isn't always correct), then just ask me what part(s) you don't understand

Re: The Eirini Paniyiri (Eirini Georgatou Cheering Thread)

I love how it mangles names...'Georgatou Peace'

(Yes, I know Ειρήνη means peace...)

Sounds good otherwise I can imagine it's been a hard couple of years to be Greek...

Re: The Eirini Paniyiri (Eirini Georgatou Cheering Thread)

^Yes
I think maybe she is injured again?

Really a bad year for her outside of the slams

She barely played also, I think like ~20 tournaments total

She missed so many opportunities for points and she won't play in Australia so we won't see her until Fed Cup at least . I miss her

And her ranking is now 236

I've been checking the entry lists for ITF tournaments and haven't seen her name come up. In fact I haven't seen any Greek girls names except Sakkari.

Please stay on tour Eirini

Re: The Eirini Paniyiri (Eirini Georgatou Cheering Thread)

Eirini may have retired

Source:
http://tennis24.gr/content/view/10005/70/lang,el/

It's an article about the Greek Fed Cup team, and it has a paragraph saying why Greece's top 2 players didn't participate. *It says about Eirini that she didn't participate because she has chosen to quit tennis because she had no support from the Greek Federation

But I've also heard from a very reliable source that this information is not true

Re: The Eirini Paniyiri (Eirini Georgatou Cheering Thread)

Well I don't know
She's been studying at TEFAA in Athens for a few years which is where a lot of Greek sportspeople study and I see that she is still studying there so I don't know...
Her Facebook profile picture is still her with her ex-coach from Mouratoglou's (not the Greek one she had at the USO)...

And she suddenly withdrew from 25K Istanbul after the draw came out and then she was never seen ever again in any tournament . But shortly after she gave that interview and spoke about her goals to reach the top 100 and play in the Olympics so she seemed motivated but I don't know . It says in that article that she stopped playing because the federation couldn't support her so that's sad and it happens a lot with Greek players but I don't think money was a problem for Eirini. She travelled all over and paid to train at Mouratoglou's and all those trips to tournaments in remote places like Uzbekistan and when she had like 15 relatives cheering her on at the USO two years ago, etc...

I just wish we had more information . Her official website is inactive and Ive emailed her agent before and he's responded but now he won't respond when I ask if she's retired
