Re: Jelena's Schedule?

People comparing this year to Dokic's comeback in 2008 need to look at the differences.

2006:

AO WC Playoff - Won
MD WC into Hobart - Lost in 1st Round
MD WC into Aus Open - Lost in 1st Round

2008:

AO WC Playoff - Reached Qtrs but retired to Rogowska.
Q WC into Hobart - Qualified, reached 2nd Round (defeated 3 top 100 players)
Q WC into Aus Open - Lost in 2nd Round of qualifying to Tanasugarn (former top 30), but defeated Erakovic in 1st Round(who the week before reached semi's in Auckland)

The success has been much more promising this year than in 2006. Although she won the AO WC Playoff in 06, that was when she had been playing somewhat regularly. I believe she only lost this year in WC Playoff because she had barely played in 2 years. She's shown too much progress and promise to give up now.

Re: Jelena's Schedule?

I hope that she does well here. She needs to come to these tournaments with the desire to get back to the top, because anyone can see that if she managed to have the results that she did at Hobart then she should be having good results at these 25k tournaments.

I agree with jumpingjoe. The next big season coming up is clay (there are Miami and Indian Wells and some other random tournaments), and if Jelena can get some good results on the clay then she might be able to request some qualifying WC's into some WTA level clay tournaments later on in the year.

Just do well, Jelena.

Re: Jelena's Schedule?

I think it's actually worse for Jelena to play 25k's than nothing at all in a sense. If she loses early here, her confidence will evaporate instanly. I think it's also harder for Jelena to play at her level against girls like this.

Daniela Hantuchova.

Casey Dellacqua, Jelena Jankovic, Anna-Lena Groenefeld,
Jelena Dokic, Mirjana Lucic, Sara Tomic, Sloane Stephens
Melanie Oudin, Kiki Bertens, Kaia Kanepi, Alison Riske

Re: Jelena's Schedule?

if she is really serious about this comeback then a few losses are not going to kill her confidence. If anything, she should expect them. No matter what her ranking is, she is going to lose matches, every player does, it is part of being a tennis player. I still stand by what I said earlier. For the moment...everyone needs to stop criticizing Jelena and just to wish her well. Also, lets hope she actually gets into the draw because she is 259 on the alt list.

If she pulls out, which I dont think she will, then we can all freak out.

Re: Jelena's Schedule?

Just to clear something up... Capriolo is played on carpet, not clay.

Re: Jelena's Schedule?

Thanks Dave. I guess an Italian looking name for a tournament makes everyone, including myself, assume that it is on clay.

I just want Jelena to play. She's obviously still got the talent to be in the top 100. I just want her to play because if she is playing regularly than it's only a matter of time really. Someone with her talent should not stay around the 400-500 ranking mark for too long because she's better than that.

Re: Jelena's Schedule?

What a shame she did not show up in Pattaya. Very waek qualifying draw and she could have done some real damage in the main draw as well.
