Jaslyn has a great draw, she's already beaten the 5th seed Irina Boulykina this year who she'll most likely face in the 2nd round.

Jaslyn had a reasonable junior career winning the Italian Junior Open I think and a few others. Unfortunately for her she has been plagued by injuries to her knees and stomach/abdominals since moving out of juniors to seniors.

She does have a reasonable game, her weakness is really her serve, she doesnt do nearly enough with it. She is a fighter like Lleyton, I saw her battle through a match last year at Rebecq $10k where she was in a lot of pain and to her credit she gutsed out the win.

Hasnt been easier for her to live in the shadows of her brother. At the Australian Open a few years ago, Jaslyn was playing 1st round qualies when her dad said to her mum, "Our daughter isnt much is she!" This is the same asshole father that used to make Jaslyn jog 5-10kms a day as an 8 year old, thus the reason for her knees flairing up from time to time.

Jaslyn has been ranked inside the top 310 in singles. If she could stay injury free there is no reason why she cant improve on her career high rank of 308

If Jaslyn ever breaks the top 250 I will be pleasantly surprised. Unfortunately I don't see much in her game, but who knows she might surprise me one day...

Whilst I agree that her father is a complete twat, I think some of those reports have been a little over exaggerated

Elke is 18 born in January 1985
Jaslyn is the same age as Kim, 4months older actually, born in February 1983

I think having Lleyton as her brother and Kim as her brothers girl frend must be tough, seeing all there achievements and stuff. But Kim and Jaslyn seem to get along very well, but i have only seen them at davis cup ties

Good Luck to Jaslyn in GB

Not at all, that amount of jogging in her growing years would place extreme strain and impact on the knee joints.

The serves not great and when I last saw her, her groundies looked a bit slappy and flat. The day i saw her they went in !!!!!! but Ive wondered if they'll carry her anywhere.

There's more to life than just being happy.
