Because I'm bored and because this forum is normally so buzzing and active for a players forum and I don't want to lose that.
As we all know, she has received the qualifying WC, and although there was some talk of what ranking Jela used to enter Memphis and what not, I'm pretty sure she's going to be in the qualies draw when it (hopefully) comes out later on today.
Good luck in Memphis, Jela! Hope you can qualify!
(1)Jelena Dokic (AUS) v Yuliana Fedak (UKR)
Katie OŽBrien (GBR) v (5)Evgeniya Rodina (RUS)

So apparently the draw was already put out earlier. First post is updated.
I think Rodina could definitely be a tough opponent. I saw her in Brisbane, and she's no pushover. Jela can beat all 3 in her section though. Just a matter of whether she will.
Well...no pressure i guess she can afford to have a bad tournament here and there, after what she did in Australia ....as long as she keeps it going at the big tournaments like Indian Wells and the slams
I expect Jela to have too much for Fedak, but I was just thinking before, that this is her first tournament outside of Australia in a fair amount of time. I hope she can adjust to the conditions so that they aren't the reason for any losses, but you never know.
