Jelena backs to ITF tournaments again?

Jelena's name is on the Alternates list for a 50.000 $ event in the United States which starts February 20th.

According to the "Tennis Reporters" Jelena will return to ITF tours.

She is going to play in Las Vegas from 27th February at "Tennis Channel Open", 75.000 $!

i.e. ITF St. Paul.

I'm not sure that dropping back down to the ITF Women's Circuit is the way to go. It did little to help Jelena last year. I think she has improved her attitude a lot since then, but she's always tended to play to the level of her opponents.

It's the only way. Unless she quits of course. WTA tournies just do not give her WC's any more.

At least if she drops back to ITF's, when it comes time for MD wc's into the Aus tournaments next January - she can still imply that it's been ages since she's played. Just like this January, if u didn't know better, you'd think she hadn't played at all in 2005 except in Pattaya. So next January she can still say "it's been a long time away from the court, blah blah blah".

Jelena in the ITFs last year wasn't that bad. She did ok, usually losing to decent players (except one bad loss where she was apparently injured).
With her new fitness and form, she shouldn't have much trouble in ITF events. Easily winning or at least making it far in both she has committed to. Thus her ranking SHOULD go up so that she can qualify for WTA tournament qualifying draws.

She is also choosing ITFs in the USA leading me to believe she wants to play Miami & Indian Wells.

Only MD WC she got(actually played) into Australian tournies this year was fully earned by beating all the rest of Oz players.

They'd be crazy not to. With her immense talent and beauty, Jelena is always going to be a huge drawcard.
