Elena is in a pretty thankless position this week -- she will have a tough time just defending her points from last year's Estoril Final, since Tier 4 points are so much reduced this year.

Elena really has to step up this week, or I hate to see what will happen to her ranking. Maybe she skipped Porto in order to get to Estoril early to prepare intensely??

WIN THIS TITLE, Elena! you can do it!!

I am brokenhearted that Elena plays another big fave of mine, the wonderful Eleni Daniilidou, today in the first round!

But I have to pull this time for our Elena , who needs this win more desperately! Go out there and do it, Elena! Remember how Estoril suits you??

Elena came from behind to take the first set, and is up a break in the 2nd -- but I don't trust these leads in these Russian girls' hands!

Elena! As the song says: "Keep on doing what you're doing -- don't stop!"

She did it!!!

It took a tiebreaker in the 2nd set to close it out, but Elena came through! I am SO happy for her!

Oh Elena! I am glad you and Zsofia won your doubles match, but 2 1/2 hours on court?? Was that good for you? Will you regret it tomorrow?

I hope not, Elena! Get back to that Estoril final where you belong!

OH ELENA!!! I am so proud!!! Winning that 3rd-set tiebreak -- surely Elena's confidence-motor has been jump-started now!

Elena's half of the draw does not look so tough -- but can she keep it going? She isn't used to playing match after match any more, unfortunately. Is she mentally and physically prepared to hang tough?

I hope so!

I don't mean to rain on your parade, Lady Jane. But I will! Elena B. is not mentally or physically prepared to hang tough, as you call it, match after match. At 6'2" tall and weighing about 160 to 170 pounds, she should be tough enough. But I don't think she is. But I'll glady root for her, anyway. Elena is gorgeous, too! But I think she needs to spend more time in the weight room. Because she really doesn't use her great size to her advantage. And she should. Udachi Elena B!

cat, I fear you are probably right; these clay court matches are pretty grueling and Elena is no doubt discovering right now exactly what condition she is in!

But nonetheless I am sure her spirits are high, after pulling out, rather than LOSING, the tough matches. So I hope, since she is so young, that her happy mind can coax her undoubtedly-sore body into a few more wins.

As if to show the cat that she means business, Elena has advanced today to the Doubles Final and the Singles Semifinal!

Sure, I am concerned that her doubles match lasted almost 2 hours. But luckily the singles match was not that competitive.

I hope Elena can take it to Serna tomorrow, and return to her spot in the Final where she belongs.
Win the Singles AND Doubles titles, Elena!
Prove the bad cat wrong!!

Janie, Elena is showing me? What are you bringing me into this for? LOL!

It's amazing how much more comfortable she is on slow red clay. Udachi Elena B! Do it for Elena D!

Elena saved her rank from falling out of top 100, 2nd Russian to do so after Anna in Tokyo.

good luck Elena in semis make the final girl

also Elena will play alot more on clay than she did this time last yr so her rank will go up

I KNEW Serna would be tough!!!

Still, Elena DID have the best week she's had in a LONG time. Thanks Eggy for the ranking news; I knew she had too many points to defend, but it could have been so much worse.

Best of luck in the Doubles final, Elena!
I look forward to following you through the clay court season.

CONGRATS ELENA AND ZSOFIA on a very authoritative win in the doubles title match! This is Elena's third Doubles title, and all three have come in the past several months, so at least in Doubles, Elena is indeed a Rising Star.
