Dokic. Have never heard of a player named Dominque Van Roost so he/she can't be very good.

Re: Dominque Van Roost or Jelena Dokic? - who was/is better

Van Roost seemed to be better in terms of always around singles or doubles. Dokic has gone off the raydar but maybe she can turn it around!
Right now i believe it has to be van roost with all the big bottles of drinks or the flask thing she carried around!

Re: Dominque Van Roost or Jelena Dokic? - who was/is better

Maybe people know her better as Dominique Monami
But why compare the 2?
Dominique retired ages ago...
Is there a link between them that i'm missing?

I'm also confused about this comparison. It seems so random. I mean, why not also make a poll comparing Van Roost and Hantuchova... or Dokic and Spirlea?

Can someone post Van Roost's greatest career achievements? I only saw a little of her at the end of her career. I don't know much about her.

But something she did accomplish that Dokic never did is beating Davenport, and she did it twice in a row on different surfaces: Roland Garros 2000, Eastbourne 2000! Dokic is like 0-7 vs. Davenport.

In Eastbourne? wow, now i'm impressed, i didn't know she did that
I also don't know that much about her though
Just that she reached top 10 in the world
And her best slam performance was QF at the Australian Open (if i'm not mistaken)

Re: Dominque Van Roost or Jelena Dokic? - who was/is better

I loved watching Dominique
But Jelena was the better player

STUPID, CLASSLESS, CHEATING, ATTENTION SEEKING, LOOKS LIKE A 45 YEAR OLD, EMBARRASSMENT TO THE NO.1 RANKING, NOT TO LEAVE HER GROSS MOM OUT, GREEN GREMLIN
