Is Jelena Dokic the best serbian ever?

Is she better than Ivanovic, and Jankovic?

I actually think she is better in many ways.

Well she isn't Serbian now, but she has beaten Hingis, Venus, Clijsters and other top players, so I would say yes

Re: Is Jelena Dokic the best serbian ever?

^^

And did Jankovic/Ivanovic have the chance to actualy verse those players?

The active player there on your list would Be Venus.. Both have been defeated by the Serbian Duo

so the answer to your question is a simple: No

No, not at all really.

Ana has a GS, and Jelena is world number one!

Re: Is Jelena Dokic the best serbian ever?

Even though she is one of my faves, I have to say no
Brain counts, and she doesn't have much in this department

Best of luck to my favourites:
Lina Krasnoroutskaya, Vera Zvonareva, Masha Sharapova
Vénus Williams, Seréna Williams, Lindsay Dávenport
Jelena Dokic, Daniela Hántuchova, Ana Ivanovic
Masha Kirilenko, Nastya Rodionova, Alina Jidkova

To all players on tour: stay healthy and play your best

Re: Is Jelena Dokic the best serbian ever?

Seles is now counted amongst the Serbian players, so I'm assuming she trumps all of them?

FUCK YOU, SEWTA.

Re: Is Jelena Dokic the best serbian ever?

Even as a Dokic fan I'd have to say no as Ana has won a GS and been #1 and JJ is #1 and been to a GS final.

She's definitely in 3rd place though!

Re: Is Jelena Dokic the best serbian ever?

I would rate Dokic before Ana. Dokic just had a better game and would have been better if she didn't have these personal issues to bother her.

Re: Is Jelena Dokic the best serbian ever?

No. Jankovic and Ivanovic are clearly very substantially ahead of Dokic. If one wants to count Seles as a Serb then obviously she is substantially ahead of Jankovic and Ivanovic.

To be honest, I am surprised anyone is taking this question seriously.
