An interview with Lena http://tennis.sport-express.ru/reviews/32175/

Last question is heartbreaking for those of us hoping to see her play more legends doubles

- Will participate regularly in the legends doubles tournaments?
- No. Only once (laughs). Although they call me for the US Open, Wimbledon sent an invitation. It's a big honour to be in Paris right now and play together with Martina Navratilova. But this is an exception for my most favorite tournament...

(thx to IVA)

I mean she could have won at least two Grand Slams before leaving pro tennis


She left tennis for a family life but she has no baby... strange..


She should be a tennis coach..

Dementieva sees future in coaching tennis girls...

Two-time Grand Slam finalist Elena Dementieva sees coaching youngsters as a likely career path.

The 31-year-old Russian, who hung up her racket in 2010, revealed that coaching the less impressionable tour pros didn`t appeal as much as cultivating them.

"To take a grown-up, a fully-blown player, has no interest for me," Dementieva said on the website of the Moscow Legends event where she`s competing this week.

"My own experience tells me that everything is laid down in childhood. A coach`s work is a tough daily grind and a big responsibility but I think maybe I`ll go into it in the future," she said.

Dementieva, a former world No.3, was beaten by compatriot Anastasia Myskina in the 2004 French Open final, and by another Russian, Svetlana Kuznetsova, in the following US Open final.

She won Olympic gold at the 2008 Beijing Games, downing Dinara Safina in three sets.

PARIS, France - Sandwiched between the two semifinals at Roland Garros on Thursday afternoon, the WTA marked its 40th anniversary by welcoming back a host of former players to the center stage.

Grand Slam champions Martina Navratilova, Martina Hingis, Arantxa Sánchez-Vicario and Conchita Martínez were among those returning to Philippe Chatrier for the celebrations, each of whom received a bouquet and a guard of honor from the ball kids to mark the occasion.

Also in attendance, albeit not at court level, were Chris Evert, Amélie Mauresmo, Justine Henin and Mary Joe Fernandez, who all took a moment away from their commentary commitments to give the appreciative crowd a wave from the television gantry.

The ceremony was the latest event in the WTA's 40 LOVE campaign, marking the 40th anniversary since Billie Jean King and her fellow revolutionaries transformed the sporting landscape by launching the Women's Tennis Association in 1973.

Before Navratilova and company made their way onto the terre battue, two current greats, Maria Sharapova and Victoria Azarenka wrote the latest chapter in their burgeoning rivalry, and after the match both players touched on the WTA's history and also its modern day role.

"It's an incredible thing what happened 40 years ago," Azarenka said. "They started something from scratch and look where we are here today - we are the biggest women's sport in the world.

"So it's definitely something that I'm so proud of, being a part of this community. We can't thank enough the co-founders and people who made it happen. It's been an incredible ride, and I feel like it's our job to just keep moving forward and keep growing the sport and just really help promote women's tennis and women's sports overall."

Sharapova was equally effusive in her praise of the sport and its global reach. "I have been on the tour for many years now, and I have seen it grow and change and go through a few different CEOs," she said. "It's gone through a lot, and I think all in a positive direction.

"I think tennis as a whole is an incredibly huge worldwide sport. To see where the women are today in terms of just global recognition and what we do and the amounts of different markets that like to watch us, that show us on TV, that host events and tournaments, I'm really proud to be part of it."
