  1. Hi Marija!


    I’m researching for my introduction AND FOR MY review of related literature………

    I’m actually watching right now, the dinara and elena match……..

    Elena really do give her opponents a bad day with her inside out forehaNDS AND inside out backhands, it’s just so hard tp track it, myabe jelena and venus can only track it……

    And i’ve noticed, dinara now relies more on her serve than usual, love the rhythm and the sound of it………she had her strokes flatten at the hard courts, and it make her a goor player on this surface……

    love it……..

    love to be back here, at times!!!!!!!!!!!

    Good day Marija!!!!!

    Good day all!!!!!!!!

  2. Glad to have you here, Pat. Good for Elena, she won her 2nd title this year. Wow! Haha, and Safina is funny, she said she was stupid: “My coach told me to be much more aggressive. He told me the way I have to play, I did this in the second set and then I ran away from my game. That’s means I’m stupid.” Hihi. Always-emotional Safina.
