Well, I am having fun with the Philippine Fashion Week the past few days but this news certainly made me sad in a way. Russia's Elena Dementieva, one of my favorite tennis stars have called it quits. That is one sad news. Regarded as one of the greatest tennis stars never to have won a Grand Slam, she sure will be missed. Despite not having won any Slam, she rose to fame winning the Gold Medal in Beijing 2008 Olympics Games. She came close to winning slams as well but just really came short. (2004 French and 2004 US)

Elena is a well loved sportswoman. She is regarded as one of the good players out there who has the games to slug it out against the best and has the good attitude to couple up with her talents. She will leave the sport with a lot of memories and titles (16 WTA). To show that she's really great, she's gonna finish in the Top 20 for the 11th straight year and on those years, she has finished inside the Top 10 on 7 of the last 8 years.

We'll miss you Elena. Hope you'll enjoy the next chapters in your life. A comeback would be wondeful for your fans in the future. Thanks for the great memories.
