Re: Dokic or Petrova?

Erm, well i have to pick Nadia to have the better career over Jelena for sure.

I mean Nadia has won all her 6 career titles at Tier II or above level while Jelena has only won 3 career titles at Tier II or above. Plus Nadia has the better career high ranking than Jelena (not that much of a difference, better career W/L record & has done overall better at the slams than Jelena has (2 RG SF's, 2 USO QF's, 1 AO QF & 1 Wimby QF for Nadia, 1 Wimby SF & QF & 1 RG QF for Jelena).

So that's my clear decision & it's obvious.

I can't even believe you're asking this question.

with Vera in the draw?"

What a stupid question

Well, take this as an answer -

They are about same age, Nadia is 3. in the world, Jelena is 583.

I really wonder who is better

Because she has big jugs...

Because her rise and subsequent fall from the game makes an interesting story.

Well that is completly different question. But stupid again
JD is attractive persone. She is hot! She is a dream of majority of people...while Nadia on the other hand is everything but hot, or cute, or prettie... Understand now why is JD more famous?
And by the way, Nadia didn't sink to 583., didn't left her's family, she appears on tournaments, so she isn't a mystery, while JD is...

Jelena is now more famous for her fall in the rankings. And she had the looks so obviously she was more famous
