Ah, well. Not the best ending, but she got what she wanted here: a chance to play a lot of matches. She played 6 matches, right? She's certainly not used to playing 6 matches in 7 days, so I think she did pretty well for herself. She just needs to keep at it.

Yep 6 matches so it was a success as far as I'm concerned. She got much needed match play in, and although she lost to a player she probably shouldn't, she didn't give up and she fought to the end. She was actually down a break in that third set and kept fighting. Though she may be a little down about the loss, her trainers at the German Academy won't let her just stop playing for 2 months like she has done before after a tough loss; They will pinpoint the areas of Jelena's game that needs work and they will train her to be ready for teh Australian season. I personally can't wait!

I don't care how many matches she had to win, losing in a 10K is not good.
That was the same excuse earlier when she played 5 matches in a Tier IV.
It was the same excuse when she played 5 matches in a 50 K.
It was the same excuse when she played 5 matches in a 25 K.
There can't be any more excuses.
There's no other level she can go down to.
This was do or die time and not being able to win this 10 K is very dissapointing.
I think she should take some time off and decide if she really wants this.

Just 10 months ago, Stosur believed that Jelena had the groundstrokes to make the comeback.
Her heart or mental toughness is not there.

If you want to know the reason why Anna Kournikova hasn't made a comeback, then just look at Jelena in the last two years.

"Everybody always said I didn't get that job because my wife is white. If you're not strong enough to look through that then you have the issue."
-Charlie Strong, assistant head coach of the Florida Gators

Black presidents of the US=1
Black head coaches in the SEC=0
Something needs to change.

Aaargh, so close. Winning all those matches in a row was good and a third set tiebreak loss must hurt.

But Jelena must push on from this - keep playing more matches, get more practice, more competitive play and carry herself on to the next level. Her aim should be to win these sort of events and step up.

Wow Astrid What a great win!!!!
It's no secret that I'm not a huge Jelena fan, but she has had a good week and will hopefully gain some confidence from this.
