Very very sad indeed. She has been a credit to herself; her country and the sport of tennis throught the world. She and her like will be sorely missed and we wish her all the best of things in her future life. We will miss you greatly.

What a shock! Tennis is losing one of its classiest,most stylish players.She will be sorely missed on the WTA tour! But I can kind of underestand why I think she did it.She's been suffering from more and more injuries lately and probably thinks that she's got as far now as she's ever going to get before injuries force her to give up anyway.Apparently she has a steady boyfriend so no doubt she's thinking of marrying,settling down and having a couple of kids before it gets too late for her (she's 29 remember).She's given her all to the game and has graced the tennis scene for the last ten years.Now it's time to do something else with her life. Farewell and good luck Elena...no-one who loves women's tennis will forget you!

I would like to thank Elena for her excellent play over the last 12 years and her pleasant manner throughout . I have been watching tennis since 1970 and since she came on the scene she has won many hard -fought matches was always well-groomed and represented her country well.. So thanks for all the entertainment and Good Luck in the future Elena. Barbara
