RE: Elena Baltacha


WTA remember Bally in their year end round up.
I debated whether to post it, it's not much; it still broke me though.

In the end, any reason to remember Bally seemed like a good reason, so I hope no-one minds.

Just heard Harry Skinner is planning to run the London Marathon in her memory - sponsorship to the children's liver disease charity of which she was patron.

Amen to that.

WTA run another brief piece on EBAT today.

Her star will never go out.

Nice to see the Beeb (news channel) remembering her death a year ago today, reporting on EBAT & featuring a brief interview with Nino.  I sincerely hope EBAT manages to find a permanent home soon.

A really nice gesture from the LTA and the new Nottingham WTA event.

Having just watched the pre-Wimbledon party coverage (I'm shallow, see) there was a very pleasant surprise.
At least three girls from the Elena Baltacha Academy given full Red Carpet access (well, it was a purple carpet, but you get the idea), and WTA CEO STacey Allaster personally manhandling Serena, Maria and many others to ensure they each spent a few minutes talking directly with the girls.
Well done.

Time to smile (and probably cry)
Good to see Nino strong again.

Two years gone.
Always thinking of Bally.
Always missing her.
Remembered forever.

Love to EBAT & Nino.
Bally

It is shocking.....I always thought she was so young and vibrant....so sad for a professional athlete to pass at such a young age.....just so shocking what she was able to achieve while being so hurt, injured and sick through much of her career....and then to die so young is just so heartbreaking....
