could be. but we don't know how much time she does spend with him so we shouldn't assume anything. the more likely reason is that what she is working on will take awhile to reap the results.

Go the aussies! stosur!!!
and good luck russians: dementieva, safina, kirilenko, sharapova, kuznetsova, bovina, zvonareva, dushevina.

also good luck to: azarenka, lucic, sprem, vakulenko, vaidisova, safarova, ivanovic, groenefeld, mirza, krajicek, kvitkova, larcher de brito, lisicki.

bingo Gowza. finally someone who know's what they're talking about. it takes time to see really good results immediately after hiring a new coach. and how could a bf hold you down???? i mean look @ Kim. well she's not a really good example coz her boyfriend his a tennis star. ok take Andy Roddick for example. he's going out with Mandy Moore who's more known than he is and that isn't hindering his results. just give her some time man

Possibly, but more likely he is keeping her sane at the moment. She has a lot of crap to deal with

(1/20/17) Just discovered this gem in my private messages from 2006:
Who is Rtael?
This guy Rtael ,brainless and ignorant, is one of the most obnoxious, arrogant and coward guys whos has been a pest in this forum for years now.Given the new anti-bully policy he'll probably be expelled soon. Observe how he tries to rally and gang others against you. Mean people like him shouldn't be allowed here. And all because he "doesn't like your attitude"!!
**Everyone should consider themselves warned!**

I think he is ugly... He has a face like a smacked arse if you ask me....

Of even more significance, there's this little gap in Graf's resume the size of the hole in the ozone layer: It's called Monica Seles. Was Graf the best female player of all time? She wasn't even the best in the heart of her career.

There is no reason but one for this (I wouldnt even call it a "slump". that is she is merely not good enough to compete at the top. How many top ten players has she beaten in her carrer? has she done anything big at all? She won all her titles without beating a great. whatever new thing she tried, I dont think that would make much of a difference in her game. I would be surprised if she stayed in the top 10 thruout the season.

That guy isn't really cute... Jelena should be doing better than that.

And I don't know what that hole in her sweater is...

"My coach and I have been working very hard on changing and improving my game but that is not evident at the moment. It will talk at least 3 - 6 months for the effect to be noticed"

jelena has beaten pierce 3 times (6-4 6-3, 6-2 6-0 and one other time), hingis twice (6-2 6-0, 6-4 6-3), clijsters twice, capriati, coeter about 3 times, venus 6-1 6-2 in 2000, mauresmo 7-6 6-1 in the rome final, rubin, testud, tauziet, henin and maleeva.

and you say she hasn't beaten any greats?

Go the aussies! stosur!!!

her wins over Mary came post-French 2000, didn't they?

And I mean, Coetzer? a big win? Seriously?

But don't worry. I don't agree with Gogomaggie. jelena has a fine record, and deserves her slot in the top ten. however, what is all this slump talk about? She's 2-2. had a couple QF losses to Raymond and Daniilidou. jelena has always had mediocre results like these peppered with the good stuff. Also, it took her until April to get untracked last year (aside from the paris final). I think people need to quit pushing the panic button.
