with Venus and Jelena Jankovic still alive in her bracket, i don't think she has much of a chance. She's good but not at that level....and she definitely is VERY attractive
She's yet another tall, slim, beautiful Russian tennis babe. There's no doubt about it.
Her game, apart from her serve, is as good as it gets, from my perspective. She doesn't show a lot versatility, pretty much happy to pound away from the baseline. But that's the norm, now, anyways (in other words, Chrissie won
). But she is absolutely lethal from both wings, has excellent movement and instincts, and a really fierce drive.
Her serve ... yikes. Her first serve can actually be pretty good. When she manages to get it in. But that second serve, and the amount of doubles she can rack up once she starts to lose it -- complete disaster.
I was confident, a couple years ago, that Lena would manage to squeak out a Slam title before her career ended. Now, not so much. Which I think is a really unfortunate thing, because she won't be remembered as she should be.
And she's got a great personality, wears her heart on her sleeve on the court, and has a lot of charisma. She's really easy to root for.
