Dokic, obviously. Mel didn't have a hard time, in fact she beat Jelena at Wimbledon just a few months earlier Who knows how deeply Jelena's past still troubles her

Also, no matter who you compare it to, Dokic always wins these polls

Dokic beat her opponents. Ugly Oudin's opponents beat themselves.

How can you compare these two players?

Sure it is the same result, but we are talking of two different classes of players altogether. By Melanies age Jelena already had tier 1 titles, multiple second week runs in slams, top ten, etc :P...it comes as much less of a surprise to see Jelena win 4 matches at a slam as she has done it before and Melanie has not.

Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!

...and no I did not forget that Jelena disappeared for a while, but like Kim's absence, the talent does not just go away when you stop playing tennis...

Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!
