When Jelena played at aus open the commentators were saying she still hits the ball technically the same. So why should she if her game is still in tact from a technical perspective?
Sure, she needs to get fitter mentally and physically...which she will if she plays more and is commited...but time to retire? why dont we leave that up to her. if she still really loves tennis and is ready to start at the bottom and not be handed WC after WC , then sure she can come back. by come back i dont expect to see her at no.4 but top 100 is a possibility within the near future
