All of things the organizers had to do without their "cart horse" of the "Biberach Open". Former world's #4 Jelena Dokic withdrawn very late by the 25k-event. There was also a change in the seedings: Renata Voracova is topseeded.
Less noise is there without Jelena Dokic in the WTB-Halle on the "Biberacher Hühnerfeld", because the Serb with current residence in Australia has a loud groaning in her shots - similar like world's #1 Maria Sharapova. The organizers would accept this side noise - the name of the former world's #4, who retired after privat problems and started a short time ago again, had done well for the tournament. Also because it is a worser field like in Praha or Stockholm in the same weeks like Biberach and worser than in 2006.
That's also a reason why the organizers bewail Dokic's withdrawn. "I called with her and she said sorry for her withdrawn. She wanted to play here" , said Schmid (origanizer). She practised a lot in the last time, but had problems with her wirst "Her doctor said she shouldn't play a tournament"
With her current-ranking, Jelena Dokic wouldn't be the top-player in Biberach. It was Renata Voracova from Czech Republic, who is world's #115. In 2006 it was Sabine Klaschka with #144, but after Voracova? Not so much...Only two players, Yvonne Meusburger and Voracova, are top-200, in 2006 there were 8 ones.
etc. - but nothing else about Jelena..
I made the translation withour a dictionary, so sorry for mistakes
