its a tough draw but anything is a tough draw for Jelena of late. I do think she should be back by this event and hope she draws Sveta in r2 cos her game suits Jelena whereas Ruano will make Jela play way too many balls. I can see Jelena making the semis if her game is back and she'll definately give Kim a nice tussle as she has done in all their previous encounters.
I know its asking alot at this stage, but i think she should be very fresh having not played much this year and is really hungry to get a solid result. If she doesnt find her game here im sure shell get there at Sarasota (tier 4) where she is defending champ and its a smart move to play that before the BIG clay events!!!
Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!
