Jelena Dokic Has Only Won One Main Draw Match Since Aus Open

not counting ITFs/challengers. really disappointing, but I kinda expected it after that great run at Aus Open. I expect she'll get back to her winning ways during the hardcourt season this summer after Wimbly.

Well hopefully the grass can kickstart her season again. She used to be amazing on it.

It is disappointing but you've got to remember that she's had tough draws as well, Wozniacki, Craybas and Olaru are not easy opponents!!!

I think she'll pick it up, just as RG ends. She'll participate in the tournaments before Wimbledon and she'll do well.

These are two of the easier opponents you'll find in WTA main draw matches...if she can't beat the likes of them, then the pattern will continue

Re: Jelena Dokic Has Only Won One Main Draw Match Since Aus Open

I think she'll win a round or 2 in Paris, but if she keeps losing through Wimbledon, her season will have totally jumped the shark.

It's rather odd she's been brilliant playing for Australia and nearly winning an ITF. Looking at her draws, the only real disappointments have been against Olaru (esp since the draw is so open) and against Craybas (even though Jill had a nice run).

Re: Jelena Dokic Has Only Won One Main Draw Match Since Aus Open

I hope she gets it together. It would be such a shame to start off so promising and then just fall flat. Hopefully she will win a round at RG and then build on that for the rest of the season. She needs to start racking up points soon though or come next January her ranking will be shot.

Re: Jelena Dokic Has Only Won One Main Draw Match Since Aus Open

She will come around eventually. She will not have crowd support like at the AO and she will need to adjust. All it takes for Dokic is one solid result and you will see many others following suit.

Re: Jelena Dokic Has Only Won One Main Draw Match Since Aus Open

I think that what's important is that she's playing again. Jelena's problem was always that she would give up after a few losses and disappear. Also, I don't really think anybody (including Jelena) expects her to have a very good clay season...it's just not her surface. I have a feeling that as long as she's playing full time again she'll have some good results this year, especially once grass and the faster hard courts roll around.
