PETITION TIME!! - Does Jelena Dokic deserve TA's French Open Wildcard?

I think it is time for TA to sit up and take notice of Jelena once more...

She qualified for Hobart and Fes and has beaten Muller, Meusberger, Shvedova and Erakovic already this year...

She is already scheduled to re-enter the WTA Rankings at around 429 after her results this week...

As a result, I think she should get FO WC ahead of the likes of Molik and Stosur...It would be her first Grand Slam main draw appearance since 2006 Australian Open

It is time for TennisForum.com to help influence TA here and now

SO GET VOTING

As much as I love Jelena I dont think she should be rewarded the wildcard... Especially if she is changing back to serbian anyway... I would love her to get the US Open one.

^^^^
You just want Sam to get it
Jelena has obviously put in the hard yards and seems determined to get back to the top

I don't think she will change back to Serbia, especially if she got the French Open wildcard

Re: PETITION TIME!! - Does Jelena Dokic deserve TA's French Open Wildcard?

Of course she should! Already achieved more than any Aussie this year, bar Dellacqua. This would show Jelena that TA is behind her, so if TA doesn't want to lose her than they should wisen up and use there fuckin heads!

Molik and Stosur - both in quallies. If they are good enough to be in the FO MD than they will qualify. Moore - still a bit too young in my opinion - needs to really prove herself on the ITF tour before she gets the TA handouts ala FERGUSON Ferguson, Wheeler and Adamczak - had enough chances in my opinion - and they should make FO quallies aswell I think. Dokic is the only real prospect left to consider..if Australia wants to keep her as an Aussie they need to start backing her in this comeback..

If they don't want to just waste a WC, then Dokic should get it obviously - but I doubt TA will give it to her because they are and need

Re: PETITION TIME!! - Does Jelena Dokic deserve TA's French Open Wildcard?

I agree.
Dokic worked very hard in Australia and lost a lot of weight. She has continued to work hard since the Australian Open, and realistically, she could do some serious damage at Roland Garros. Like you said, it would show her and her family that Tennis Australia is behind her.

And to be honest, Molik shouldn't get it. She has had her fair share of handouts. She should be made to qualify by TA - for once. Stosur's comeback last week in Dothan was impressive, but frankly, she just needs to play as many matches as possible, and quite frankly, quallies would help her to do that. She should be eyeing off Wimbledon, anyway

Moore isn't too young, but she hasn't had a decent preparation for Roland Garros and therefore shouldn't get the wildcard. And besides, that would be her 3rd Grand Slam main draw wildcard in a row...
Obviously Adamczak, Ferguson and Wheeler shouldn't get it, so Dokic is a logical answer

Re: PETITION TIME!! - Does Jelena Dokic deserve TA's French Open Wildcard?

My choice for the FO WC would either be between Jelena or Jess.

Although to be honest I would like to see Jelena play FO Qualies rather the MD just to get more & more matches under her belt to enable her to be prepared for the players that are highly ranked above her (unless she does really well in Fes in the MD & possibly Rome, then she'll be ready).

And I don't think Jess is too young to receive one, she also deserves it for her wonderful results that she has been displaying over the last few months

I agree re. Jess...but I would like to see her play quallies for French Open and Wimbledon rather than MD's straight up. She will most likely play main draw of all 4 next year anyway...
Jelena on the other hand, well she really should get the French Open wildcard. I think it's only fair...


Sorry there's no ''Not Sure'' option now I posted poll

Maybe her result tonight can sway your verdict, Ben and Jordan

If Jelena wins Fes (scratch that actually), does well in Fes & puts in a decent showing in Rome, then I'll definitely say she'll deserve the WC.
