and the dementieva/dokic h2h is random and i don't care who leads it lol..
A thread about a tennis player announcing an absence from the tour, how dare someone post that in the sanctity that is GM. Quickly, someone make another Peak Graf vs Peak Seles thread and bring us all back to normalcy

Maria & Nicole & Anastasia & Petra & Donna & Caro & Jelena & Jelena

Re: Jelena Dokic Forced To Skip Australian Season

Lets face it she should have retired years ago. She never has had the consistency and tennis brain to be a champion and never will. How she has such die hard fans bewilders me.

Re: Jelena Dokic Forced To Skip Australian Season

I'm actually optimistic for her return. All through last year she was bothered by her wrist, slicing backhands in Australia and not going for big shots off that wing. Her game really relies on her powerful/precise backhand, so hopefully with that back and her new understanding of physical conditioning, she can have some decent results.

It's also a good sign that she's taking the time to prepare rather than rushing back in out of shape and rusty as she might have done in the past.

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

Exactly. There are hundreds of threads on here and yet some people find it necessary to go on a thread of a player they don't like, just to write negative stuff. Anyone who saw the state Dokic was in, when forced to retire against Dementieva at the French open in 2009, would realise how much playing tennis and getting back to the upper echelon means to this girl. If you're not a fan ? Why open the thread ?

If you don't like a player, it's easy to stay off the threads concerning them. I notice the main antagonists are usually those who own favourites are losing.

Like, totally dude. You don't need consistency/tennis brain at all to reach the top 5 of the rankings and the QFs at every slams, what a joke this pathetic girl is. In fact, any club player with some sort of brain or consistency could have done that. Let's hope Jelena logged on and had some sort of spiritual epiphany reading your post (after choking on her pizza made out of tomato and paprika) and calls it a career. [/sarcasm]

I just find it suspicious that she's skipping the Australian season but returning immediately in February. I smell something amiss with strong shades of Damir...

He looked deep into his eyes and said, "You're perfect."

"No, I'm not. But with you, I don't even care."

Yes she did. When she was a top 10-player she was a consistent hard-hitter who could both rally well and produce winners. And she won some big tournaments too, which makes her champion by definition.
