Well, I like Jelena because of a combination of things. Jelena is talented, hard working, a great competitor and quite attractive. Nobody wears a tennis dress as well as Jelena! And oh, her incredible cheekbones! Fashion models would kill for Jelena's cheekbones!
P.S. - But I think the qualities that will make Jelena a big time winner on the WTA tour, are her desire to improve, killer instinct and cunning court qualities. Anyone who saw Jelena carve up Elena Dementieva in the Kremlin Cup final, knows that the real differences between Jelena and Elena, are Jelena's killer instinct and cunning court qualities. Jelena has those great qualities at age 18. On the other hand, Elena Dementieva, at age 20, doesn't have a killer instinct or cunning court qualities. And it's starting to show up in her matches with Jelena.

SO, I see you´re realy creazy for her cheekbones. Cat, how much would you love to kiss her cheek? <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> <br />I just hope Elena improves next year to get in the top 10 again.
Sergio, I just stated the obvious about Jelena. She has a beautiful face! How much would I love to kiss her cheek? I've never thought about it. I mean it's not going to happen. Right? So, why think about it?<br />Although, I did kiss supermodel Niki Taylor's right cheek, at a calendar singing in 1993. So, anything's possible!
P.S. - Sergio, thank you for hoping Elena Dementieva returns to the top ten next year. You are so kind!
