She didn't have a no-show in Las Vegas. She withdrew due to illness. She was never put in the draw.

Getting married, getting a baby and coming back to tennis in couple years. Methinks.

I regret to say that I don't buy that anymore from Jelena.

Whether or not she was Ill she still withdrew. She didn't have a no-show.

Well I guess I used the word no-show wrong, I was just saying for a reason or another, she didn't show up to play.

Dokic should be playing like she did in Australia. She seemed to be improving but she stopped playing. Something's happening

My Forever Fav: Jelena Dokic

Serena Williams, Ana Ivanovic

I don't see her making a comeback. As for what she will do I'm clueless probably like most of us are.

Any ideas why she is struggling? I mean if a player were top 10 at some moment and then retired you would expect her to break at least in top 50 when she come back

Jelena is no longer playing on tour, instead she's going to teach me to play tennis at the age of 26 for fun.

She had 2 VERY close matches again two top 100 players (Razzano was like 52 aswell). Both did ok around that time. Razzano making the 3rd rnd of Aus Open and Schruff beating Dementieva first round of Aus Open. So it isn't like she had disasterous loses. I hope Jelena continues with the comeback because her results were promising. Sure she isn't going to have a Hingis-esque comeback but if she tried her best she can be back to where she was definately.

The key is to play tournaments, and for some reason she isn't. I hope this is (may sound weird) because she really is Ill. because if she isn't she is making excuses for some other reason, probably mental, and that is terrible. If she is ill then she can get over it and come back strong.
