Nice draw. 2nd around against Wozniak who is 4th seed.

Stay away.

Re: Jelena in Warsaw: R1 v Q

MAINDRAW

(1) Wozniacki Caroline (DEN) vs QUALIFIER
Garbin Tathiana (ITA) vs (WC) Sharapova Maria (RUS)
Domachowska Marta (POL) vs Amanmuradova Akgul (UZB)
(WC)Piter Katarzyna (POL) vs (8) Bondarenko Alona (UKR)

(4) Wozniak Aleksandra (CAN) vs Goerges Julia (GER)
Dokic Jelena (AUS) vs QUALIFIER
Gallovits Edina (ROU) vs Craybas Jill (USA)
(7) Mattek-Sands Bethanie (USA) vs Keothavong Anne (GBR)

(5) Sara Errani vs Bondarenko Kateryna (UKR)
Mayr Patricia (AUT) vs Voskoboeva Galina (KAZ)
QUALIFIER vs Pironkova Tsvetana (BUL)
(3) Zheng Jie (CHN) vs QUALIFIER

(6) Hantuchova Daniela (SVK) vs Llagostera Vives Nuria (ESP)
Radwanska Urszula vs Koryttseva Mariya (UKR)
Zakopalova Klara (CZE) vs Czink Melinda (HUN)
(2) Radwanska Agnieszka vs Govortsova Olga (BLR)



Nice draw. Would have preferred Gallovits or Domachowska earlier No one extraordinarily scary in quallies either, might want to avoid Arn (), Dulgeru, Lapushchenkova and Raluca though. Don't want to get to excited, but semifinals doesn't look too difficult here.




Go Jelena! SHOOO!

Re: Jelena in Warsaw: R1 v Q

That's a good draw, a little worried about Wozniak, but if she passes Aleks she might go far.

Re: Jelena in Warsaw: R1 v Q

I saw her today.
At first I was looking from the long distance as it's very hard to see what's going on on the court where Jelena was practicing. She seemed to be playing great. She was playing a practice match with Goerges and I think I saw her hitting like 3 or 4 winners in a row, easily overpowering Julia. But then I came closer, just behing the entrance to her court. At first she looked at me a few times, maybe she remembered me from Katowice
But then
She started to make maaaany easy UE's and got furious. At first she was talking loudly to herself but then she got really mad and was shouting to (or maybe even at) Borna even though he was standing like 3-4 metres from her. I think she also shouted that she lost 1:6 but I'm not sure.
Basically she's taking things way to seriously, I was close to saying "calm down, Jelena!" to her
Maybe she was acting this way because of Damir's case...
And one more thing - both times, today and in Katowice, she was playing quite bad when it was really cold. In Katowice, before the weather went bad, she was playing very well so maybe she just sucks when it's cold outside.. It should be much warmer since Monday so I hope she'll be playing much better.
I made some pics but the quality is poor and I don't have time to upload them..

Re: Jelena in Warsaw: R1 v Q

Finally a nice looking draw. Playing a qualie first up can pose some slight problems but I doubt anything major. She has a really good shot vs Wozniak in the 2r as well so she can go far and get some easy points. If only she was smarter and played Fes, Estoril, skipped Bucharest and played Warsaw she would probably be top 50 by now.

Re: Jelena in Warsaw: R1 v Q

Wozniak is a danger, people constantly downplay how well she can play. She took out Bartoli in straights, and she's capable of beating Jela.

That said, the quarter she is in is the one I would place her in if I could choose, so she'll have her chances in Warsaw. Go Jela!

Re: Jelena in Warsaw: R1 v Q

Yes Jelena is definitely in the easier quarter. I think she can make it to the semis for sure. It's all about Jelena's unforced errors most of the time at the end of the day.

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