Me too. When I just remember how optimistic she was in Australia, all those interviews .... damn ! She is one big cheater. She came back to Australia and said things like : I love playing tennis, I will play full schedule and similar shit just to get Wild Cards and take some money
Damn, Was that worth it ? Coming back to Australia, training hard for 5 fucking months, just to earn 5k $ and go back to Zagreb ?
I really dont get it, that does not have sense at all !!! I hope Jelena will prove me wrong and play some events ASAP !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I guess she is thinking not to waste her WC oppurtunities with smaller events. Of caurse It is not the same with the year of 2006. As she said, Jelena loves tennis and she has to be stupid if she made all these hard works for only Aussie season. She lost 16 kgs for nothing??? She has some goals. She just tried her chance in this event. But failed. Next up Minsk. If she can get in, then she will automatically be in the tournaments. Because she will get a ranking at least.
She can still sign in and probably make it into the qualifying draw. 25K qualies generally have unranked players in them. We should basically know by Friday whether or not she's playing. Because if someone's name is in a qualifying draw, it means they signed in to get there, so she'd definitely be in Italy. I think we should wait and see if she plays before we start berating her for not playing. She might surprise us.
Come on people, stop dreaming! We've been too optimistis for the last few years. European 25k's are too strong, she won't get in without a ranking. Unless she plays 10k's or gets WC's, her career is pretty much over.
They still haven't announced the 4th WC for qualifying in Capriolo on the ITF website yet so Jelena could still get it, who knows. She'll play somewhere I'm sure, it won't be long and she'll be ranked again, and as soon as she's ranked she'll be able to get entry into any 25K she wants. Hope you're working hard Jelena
