I'm sure she didn't just not show up knowing she was meant to be playing.
I hope there was just a communication error.

are you sure she actually no-showed as opposed to withdrawing, or are you just trying to be sensational? (nah, wait, i take that back, i know it's not your style).

as expected

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

I'm sure, smartass. She was scheduled to play today and didn't show up for her match, hence no-show.

It's a 25k not exactly a grand slam, these things can happen.
And no she didn't withdraw, she just didn't turn up.

What I want to know though, is that don't you need to register at a tournement when you arrive, at least a day before play? And if Jelena didn't show, why was she on the schedual or play and the draw?

I was just saying though, that because she has been injured and withdrawing from a few events, perhaps she asked to be withdrawn but it was, for some reason not done or something like that.

You only need to "register" for quali as far as I know.
Withdrawal deadline is one week before the tournaments starts, so if you are still on the list they will expect you to play.

But i thought you need to register as a player when you arrive, for an identity badge thing, to get you into player's lounges, letting you book courts etc.
Maybe thats just for the tour events.

i just feel sorry for all her fans who thought she is finally back - and now this
i know this feeling
