Re: Jelena Dokic Forced To Skip Australian Season

She always seems to be injured. It may have to do with bad fitness....No matter, Jelena should probably hang it up. Almost 30 years old and not getting any better. 2009 AO was her last great run.

Dokic should have won against Dinara also

She did save that awful year though.

Re: Jelena Dokic Forced To Skip Australian Season

The last time she has been in shape was around ten years ago or so. There is no point coming back when you cannot hit the treadmill for shit. If she does so, I can see her do well in bigger events. Because in lower tier events she usually doesn't give a fuck. I guess Kuala Lumpur was an exception, but I can see her beating TOP50 players in straight sets if she has a good day. Not weighing 170 pounds helps her to have more frequent "good days."

Re: Jelena Dokic Forced To Skip Australian Season

I watched her play Isabella Holland at Sydney this year. The Australian commentators were trying so hard to not make Holland seem like the biggest scrub in the world when Dokic double bagelled her clean and dry.

Mainly because she's got the game and they'll never have it.
Wait what? Tell me you're not serious. You don't think Barty has a better shot of winning a slam in the next 8 years over Dokic in the next two?

Re: Jelena Dokic Forced To Skip Australian Season

Terrible news. I'd love to see Jelena make one last push at a serious career at the top, but time isn't going any slower and motivation has always been such an issue for her. Really just sad how things have gone for her in her career.

Serena Williams ~ Maria Sharapova ~ Venus Williams ~ Jelena Dokic ~ Melanie Oudin ~ Christina McHale

Vandeweghe ~ Mattek-Sands ~ King ~ Hampton ~ Riske ~ Glatch ~ Capra ~ Albanese ~ Brengle ~ Craybas ~ Rogers ~ Stephens ~ Boserup ~ Davis ~ Keys ~ Hardebeck ~ Brodsky ~ Gibbs ~ Pegula ~ Min ~ Townsend ~ Duval ~ Vickery ~Kiick
