Dokic is playing too much
I was very surprised to see that Jelena Dokic is playing this week in Strasbourg. Why? Because this will be her 31st tournament on the computer.
I think this is way too much tennis. I've seen some posts on here about how Jelena is starting to burn out. I can see why...her schedule has been so crazy over the past year.
Between May 28 and October 7 of last year, Jelena played in events for 19 straight tour weeks, including three two-week Grand Slam events. After a one-week break, she played the final three weeks of the season.
For the first 10 weeks of the season, she only played for three weeks during the indoor season. But since then, starting with Indian Wells, she has played every week, save the week of April 22...and there was no WTA tournament that week.
What is her motivation for doing so? I can't really see any...does anyone have any thoughts on this? Also, what does everyone think about her playing so much? She obviously has the right to do so, but it can't be good for either her health, or her tennis.
