She isn't having a great year as far as tennis is concerned!
I really hope that this talented player with her great personally and her beautiful smile, can get her game back on track, gain some more confidence in herself and get a few wins in the last part of this season!!!
Good Luck in Leipzig and for the rest of the year, Lena! :smooch:
Hmm....well, thanks for your encouraging and positive words, Leon!!!
Just because she is dropping down the rankings at the moment, doesn't mean to say that she is washed up! Yeah, every player goes through times of doubt in their career, and poor Eleni is just going through one of those times at the moment. All she needs is to improve her serve, get a couple of wins which will boast her confidence again, and she'll start climbing the rankings once more! She never has done very well in this part of the year anyway - but I'm expecting great results from her at the Aus Open 2004!!! (and Athens 2004 too, of course )
We've all got to remember, she's still only 20 years old (21 on 19th Sept ), her highest ranking was #14 (from May this year), she has 2 singles titles (one of which she won in 2003) and she got to the final of the mixed doubles at the Aus Open - so though she's not playing well at the moment, there is still many positive things for her to take from this year!
Even if she is ranked #14 or #40, I still think she is a fantastic player, who is exciting to watch and has a great oncourt attitude!!! I'm proud to be a fan of her's and I really believe that she will be a top ten player eventually!
Hi to all my fellow Eleni Fans :wavey: Let's stay positive and believe in our girl!!!
