Any win over any opponent would be an improvement. I hope her personal life has calmed down a bit.

I wish you all the best Jelena!!!

I think if Dokic gets that one win she is the type of player that can go on a run like she did mid-slump last year at Zurich. A few of these runs and Dokic can be back at it--it is just a manner of getting things going.

I don't think she will ever get back to the top 20 let alone top 10 again.
She was just overrated and that was it. She shouldn't have been ranked as high as she was cuz she really didn't have to do as much as you normally have to to reach there.

i think we've said this about 1000 times. it's your best 17 results, and every player on tour knows it. if someone can handle playing 25, that's a) better for their chances for their best 17 events to be stronger and b) better for the tour at large because a player like jelena showing up at a lot of events is healthy for the tour. it was a win-win situation for the wta when jelena was ranked #4 in the world. they had someone who could handle playing a lot, travelled a lot, showed up, and was exciting to watch. to say she didn't earn her spot at #4 is ridiculous.

someone in the montreal forum was saying that jelena is not playing next week....don't know where they got that info from though, but i hope it's false.

Although, if she feels like she still needs a break then please Jelena, take a rest....even if it meant taking the rest of the year off, i'd rather her do that so that she can come back strong next year in the aussie season!!!

I'm glad she's taking time off...she should have done this a LONG TIME AGO!! I think this will help her regroup and get back on track! Go Jelena!

Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!

She doesnt even play the Aussie season. Every year shes been healthy but deliberately missed it, but still travels to Tokyo to play the week after.

I also heard about that, it was in Serbian newspapers. They said she might not be back until New Haven.
