Re: (WC) Jelena Dokic in Strasbourg!

Great news for Jelena, her hard work over the last few weeks seems to be paying off. I just hope she can win a few matches here.

There's a suggestion in GM that JD might tank her SF in Caserta, what do you guys think? Personally I don't think (hope) that she will.

Re: (WC) Jelena Dokic in Strasbourg!

She shouldn't tank, she's simply playing too well. I hope she learned her lesson from the whole Hobart fiasco.

If worse comes to worse she'll have 2 full days off. It's not the end of the world, even if she won't be fully recovered. I want 2 titles in a row!

Re: (WC) Jelena Dokic in Strasbourg!

It is nice to see her in the MD of another WTA tournament. Hopefully she can get a nice draw.

I personally don't see any reason why Jelena would want to tank in Caserta.

Some interesting players in Strasbourg. I'd love to see Jelena play any of the following players: Bondarenko (just for the sexy factor ), Razzano (rematch ), Dellacqua (Australia's best against Australia's most improved?), and either Harkleroad, Gallovits, Koryttseva, Bacsinszky, Peng, and Santangelo because I think Jelena can beat them.

Re: (WC) Jelena Dokic in Strasbourg!

There is a little article on the official web site of the tournament :

Jelena Dokic, de retour en forme a été la 1ère a bénéficier d’une wild card pour le tableau final de Strasbourg. C’est une récompense pour la stimuler dans sa progression au sortir d’un certain nombre de tournois ITF. Elle a été très heureuse au téléphone de cette nomination et sera certainement à prendre très au sérieux la semaine prochaine. Pour ce qui est des autres invitaions, nous prendrons une décision demain en milieu de journée; et nous optons actuellement vers un support aux françaises afin que 2008 puisse enfin voir une française gagner ce tournoi. Il faut constater que les Top 10 ne sont pas très en forme, Hantouchova vient de décliner Istanboul où les défections se multiplient; dire que la dernière dans le tableau principal à Istanboul est N° 111 ( en comparaison de la N° 66 pour Strasbourg).
Pierre Staller, directeur du tournoi

-------------

It says that the reason why they gave her the WC was a reward to stimulate her progession on the ITF circuit and that she was very happy on the phone when they annonced her that she got the WC.

Re: (WC) Jelena Dokic in Strasbourg!

Jelena , great decision There is a small hope I will go there & see her However why is that next week and not this week This week would have been much better for me.

Like in former times, it looks like Jelena loves to play many tournaments again

Re: (WC) Jelena Dokic in Strasbourg!

I'm really happy she got a MD WC, but at the same time, going from 25k to a Tier III seems like a big jump. She hasn't played any 50k-100ks or a Tier IV. I really hope she gets a good draw and wins one match at least.

And if your life were gold, how long do you think you'd stay living?

Re: (WC) Jelena Dokic in Strasbourg!

I just looked at the entry list. There is potential for her to do well...

Would be great for her to run into Dellacqua or Peng in the first round. A re-match with Razzano would be funny.

And if your life were gold, how long do you think you'd stay living?
