We've lost our lovely Bally, too young. Rest in peace. My thought are with Nino and all of her family xx
Saddened to hear about Elena Baltacha's passing. My fondest memory w/Bally was sharing a wonderful chat when we met the Queen at @wimbledon
Absolutely heartbreaking news- to hear about Elena Baltacha . Bally, you will be sorely missed
