Great to hear you got the chance to speak to Lena V again Chris, she's a real sweetheart for being so great with her fans, did she recognise you BTW after your fanatical support at the RG doubles matches with Vika?
I was quite happy with her performance of a 3rd round considering she's never got that far at the USO before and there's no shame in losing to Vera as she's still learning in these big matches how to beat the top players. When her serve becomes more consistent she'l be a regular top 25 player i've no doubt. At the moment she has 1 good match serving then she can be average the next but hopefully it'l all come together eventually. She was even leading the WTA ace's table after 2 rounds with 16 to her name lol. Her coach Chesnekov has done a great job, he seems like such a character too from the stuff Lena's said about him in her website blog before and what she said after the NH final about him shaving his head for her
As for you getting her number, no chance mate as she's already taken by Myskina's ex who she had her baby with
She really is a real sweetheart Rayfinkle, such a lovely girl
I'm not sure if she recognised me after RG, after a couple of minutes she kind of looked at me as if she was thinking 'Have I seen him somewhere before' so maybe she did after the support at RG
As you say pretty decent showing in the Singles from Elena, she still is very much learning in these big matches and Zvonareva is a very good and tough player. I so agree that once the serve improves she'll consistently be top 25, top 20 too I'd say. Some days she serves fantastic, other days it can really let her down but with the vast improvements in her game this year that'll soon improve too. Her coach was such a fun guy too, and very cool at that. He was very talkative and seemed like a good guy and was coming out with a lot of funny comments on the practice court.
Ahh well, maybe Myskina's ex can soon become Elena's ex too
Elena should look elsewhere for somebody that doesn't already have a kid from an other relationship, that can always make things difficult
