CALF INJURY SIDELINES DEMENTIEVA

By Luís Santos

Wimbledon 2010 will mark the first time since the Australian Open’s 1999th edition that Elena won’t be taking part of the main draw of a Grand Slam tournament. It puts an end to an impressive streak of 46 consecutive main draw appearances, the longest among active players.

Despite struggling with this injury since the second round of Roland Garros she still managed to reach the semifinals, giving Francesca Schiavone a tight first set before finally being forced to retire. Owing to that, her grass season was cut short and eventually her SW19 ticket.

Elena was a semifinalist last year, her best performance at The Championships where she lost 8-6 to Serena Williams. Here’s hoping she comes back strong for the hardcourt season and peaks in time for the US Open where she has little to defend from last year.

Get well soon Elena!

Love Is In The Air Everywhere I Turn Around

So for you Ana Ivanovic fanboys and girls; I have some bad news!  Yes I cried in the corner too when I came home late at night and turned on my computer and found that Ana Ivanovic was dating somebody new! OMG NO!!!!

There goes the love of my life wandering in NYC with SOMEBODY ELSE.  But I still got one card up my sleeve. I got dozens of Ana Ivanovic stamps. Freshly imported from Serbia.  And noone can take that away from me! Booya!

And I have one thing to say about the one thing they have in common: They both like to play with balls.

The lucky guy is Adam Scott. A promising young golfer.

And it’s not just Ana Ivanovic who’s dating somebody new, no it’s Elena Vesnina as well.  And who is the guy she is dating? Well it’s none other than Anastasia Myskina’s ex -boyfriend Konstantin Andreev. A professional icehockey player. And long live the internet for allowing us to view videos and photos of a relationship that’s supposed to be private. Long live voyeurism and long live my 90 mbps internet connection for making the stream go as fast as lightening.
