Resolved Question: Is there any tennis
I have been keeping a close eye on the WTA tour since like forever, yet it seems that no tennis player, not one, is worthy enough to replace Elena Dementieva,
Her grace, sportsmanshp and passion in which she brought to the tennis court and off it was one of a kind. It doesn't seem like there is anyone who i could whole heartedly cheer for like i did when Dementieva was still playing. Does anyone out there think that any WTA player is somewhat like Elena, and is worthy to have her personal traits and qualities??

BQ: If she gets pregnant in next year do you think it will be a girl or a boy?
