thanks for your honesty, fresh2flash... I thought we should blame you for that :lol:fresh2flash said:That`s a very good question, tenn_ace. I don`t know why everybody else calls her that way, but I remember when I started doing it myself. It was two years ago at my 1st interview with her. I started the interview calling her "Lena", but then noticed that she called Elena Likhovtzeva and Elena Bovina - Alyona Likhovtzeva and Alyona Bovina respectively. After that I switched to addressing her "Alyona" as well, and as far as I could see she liked that name better. Maybe I was mistaken then, but I still call her only that way.
