Have just returned from Aus! Fantastic news to see that Eleni has made the fourth round of the singles and
the second round of the doubles with Todd!
Eleni & Good Luck against Serena!!
Will have a few photos to post shortly of Eleni's match at the Sydney International (
) and also first round singles match against Marissa at the Aus Open!
What great fun it was to be there, particularly at the Aus Open, there was such a great atmosphere with so many singing and cheering Greek fans! After the match I went down to the front whilst Eleni was signing autographs; I wasn't planning to ask her for an autograph, just thought it would be a good chance for some photos! I thought the queue of people would move towards Eleni but actually Eleni moved along the side of the court and suddenly there she was right in front of me signing for everyone! So, a spur of the moment thing, I grabbed my ticket from my bag and hoped Eleni would sign it for me, which she did!
Normally I wouldn't have been able to think of anything to say, but I didn't really have time to do much thinking(!), so was able to thank her and say 'Well played and good luck for the rest of the tournament!' and 'See you at Wimbledon!' (
) and she smiled back at me
. She spent about half an hour signing autographs and having photo's taken, and still on her way back to the locker room people were stopping her to say hello and ask for an autograph!
Also, there's a long article about Eleni in this month's Aussie 'Tennis' magazine, I don't know if anyone has seen it but I'll try and post a bit of it in the next few days! Forgive me if it takes a while but having just returned from a month in Aus I have lots to catch up on!
