I think the first time I saw her was that Dubai final against Simona just before the pandemic hit. She lost, but my God did she make Simona work for it. I had a feeling then that she was destined for great things.So happy for Elena. I've been rooting for her since before COVID.
Living for her absolute non-reaction.
(The non-reaction annoyed me a bit, but I felt like that was because of her achievement taking a while to sink in, rather than detachment or disinterest on Elena's part.)
This was my thinking as well.They are both awful but think I’d rather see the anti-vax moron win over the aggressive one accused of beating his ex.
