Re: Astrid Besser def. Jelena Dokic 3-6 6-3 7-6(5)
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.
