Dokic out of top 20

23 (YUG) 1315 30 Jelena Dokic

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

this isn't surprising at all.

"When I was four years old, we moved from England to USA, when my mother found out that I won't be KING!" -- Bob Hope--

Madame Oracene Williams could certainly teach the French & Belgian crowds on how to upgrade their respective primitive behaviours during a tennis match.

Good her ranking has been a bit inflated for quite some time now.

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw

"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

I can't wait to see Dani out of the top ten!!! her ranking is also way too inflated. I want her to eat more and probably she needs to fall way down to realize that she has a problem!

I don't think falling down the ranking would make someone realize they have a problem, losing constantly should be enough.

She does play well at the end of the year so maybe she can start building up points from now on if she has nothing to defend.
