Damn! Dokic ousted from a Tier IV event

First Schnyder now Dokic ousted from a Tier IV event in straight sets by Suarez. Maybe Sarisota is just cursed because this is the kind of bouncing around that one would expect to see in a Tier I or II event.

Maybe Jelena will do better in Charleston.

Oh dear... This hasn't been a great start to the season for her, but hopefuly she'll pick things up. Saurez is a good player though, and especially at doubles (her doubles partner Ruano Pascual beat Hingis in the first round of Wimbledon 01.)

Jelena, what is happening???

I think her new coach is trying too much new things!!! But Jelena has to use her own old style...

well lets put it this way, at least she didn't lose to a nobody, and she didn't really get killed. at least she put up some sort of fight coz it was 6-3, 6-3 and no bagels or breadsticks. bur Suarez is extremely good on clay and it is her best surface so........

So... Suarez, nemesis of the French, strikes against another top player on clay. That woman is dangerous, though having beaten three Frenchwomen in a row at RG last year you'd have thought she'd have the decency to put up a fight against her compatriot Fernandez in the quarters.

Maybe the tennis gods are bumping off the top players to make it seem more like a traditional tier 4?

Poor Jelena. But Suarez is a good clay courter.

Oh, I do feel for Jelena. This must be a tough loss for her. I still believe though that she is going through "teething" issues with her new coach and goals/objectives. And sometimes you have to tone it down before you bring it back on, so we need to be patient with her. She's young! She'll come back strong.

I am, however, happy for Paola. She is such a nice girl and watching her play makes me want to play because she looks like she enjoys the court so much! So congrats Paola! Take it all the way!!!

It's alright

When did Jelena Dokic turn into Elena Dementieva?

What happened to Jelena's heart, fight and killer instinct?
