Your post from 2007 when Jelena got a wildcard into the playoff (note: The PLAYOFF)



Followed by negative posts and bashing every time she got a wildcard or in WC discussions the last 6 years.

No need to say more.
It's not hate, it's truth, she isn't ready for the main draw and it would be insulting for other players who have worked hard all year on the tour. Don't take things so personally.

GO THE AUSSIES!

Hate to say but for me all your are doing is highlighting how many free passes she has been given on the never ending comeback trail. I'm all for equal opportunity being given to all those out making the effort. TA has been happy to overlook others based on age, injury, bad results, lack of fitness, Not sure why you believe that one particular player should be given a chance after chance whilst others get overlooked.

Oh and I should add that even if she does get a WC whether it be to MD or QD, despite my beliefs she will have my support. As an Australian I want to see as many Aussies as possible making MDs and would love to see her in AO next year as a DE. Hate is not something I indulge in.

Who said she is ready? I myself think she is not fit for a GS at the moment.

My reaction was towards a user who for many years is clearly negative/critical towards the same player.
I know you can't be a fan of every player, but if you bash her every time you get a chance, you clearly have a problem.

You talk about 'freepasses' but let's look for 'facts' as you say:

For AO 2006 she won the WC herself, the same for 2009.

2008 she got a QWC.

2011 she got a MDWC (finalist in the playoff and ranked 130)

Where are the freepasses?
For sure other players like Olivia Rogowska, who got a MDWC every year the last 5 years, would fit better as a 'freepasser' in that case.

^And those thighs, and calves, no doubt.

As much as I'd love to see JD play AO MD as I'm going the first two days, she needs to play a match at Hopman Cup and win to show she is even worthy. Or qualify for Sydney if she isn't getting a MDWC there.

And if your life were gold, how long do you think you'd stay living?
