Dokic won 1 WTA match in year and a half and she's still in TOP100?

Jelena's rank: #85
She won one WTA match this year, in Hobart vs. Baltacha. Last win before that was against Sprem on Roland Garros 2009. Is she gonna stick forever on challengers? She is better than that. At the moment she's in Asia ready to win another few 100Ks and she has to cuz she won bunch of them by the end of last year. Why is she playing/winning ony on challengers? Do you think that player with 1 WTA win in 16 months belongs to the TOP100?

Well she was injured for the first half of the year but yes she needs to step it up or stop next year. There was really no reason why she didn't play Guangzhou + Seoul to get some easy WTA points.

We will never know why Jelena doesnt play WTA, but she needs momentumn, to get a couple of wins and keep building. Her 3 consecutive titles at itf's show that, but i hope next year she will play mote WTA :tears"

Jelena runs the ITF circuit...

She's been injured, but she clearly needs to step it up next season. I don't know why her ranking is the one the one thats under fire when there's so many over-ranked players in the game. She's clearly won enough matches to keep her there.

You do realise that there is nothing rare or shocking about getting to the top 100 with mostly challenger points?

she has a lot of points to defend over the next few weeks, she could easily drop out of the top 100 if she doesn't do well

If she has enough ranking points to be in the top 100, than she belongs there.

Exactly. We can start talking when they reach the top 50, but even then some girls have gotten higher.

See: Martina Muller.

Daniela Hantuchova.

Casey Dellacqua, Jelena Jankovic, Anna-Lena Groenefeld,
Jelena Dokic, Mirjana Lucic, Sara Tomic, Sloane Stephens
Melanie Oudin, Kiki Bertens, Kaia Kanepi, Alison Riske

You totally missed my point. I did asked that as well but also what do you think about Dokic having only one win on tour in such a long period. Cause she's too good to have only one win and on challengers she can defeat players that won few matches on Tour.
I mean she's done nothing on big tournaments, no matter who she plays.
And again this is DOKIC, not some other player. That's why I posted it.

She's only played like 6 matches all year at tour level anyway. If she'd played 25 matches and won one i'd understand the interest, and its not like she hasn't won any matches, she won 3 straight ITFs, and still won 22 matches in a horrendous season. I've gotta give her credit for still plugging away - especially as she clearly has an aversion to both playing WTA tournaments and winning the first set.

Jelena is better sticking with ITF at the moment. There's nothing wrong with being in the top 100 playing mostly ITF - that's why they award points!!!

So long...

Because she's an ITF Queen. I'd rather see her win 3 big ITF tournaments in a row than losing in R1/R2 every week @ WTA events.

She ate lots of cheesecake for a while and lost focus but now she's tearing up the ITF circuit and will hopefully make a full schedule assault on the tour next year.

A full schedule of WTA events would be pretty good.
