Re: $100K Biella ~ CAN JELENA WIN THE PAPRIKA CUP?

Great draw. If she can beat the qualifier, and then beat Martic or Kustova, she should have played herself into enough form to beat the Pironkova. Definately expecting atleast a QF.

Okey, this is an ITF tournament but the draw is still hard I think. Qualifiers are always tough, then Martic in second round.
Jelena if you get to the QF you are back I think

Re: $100K Biella ~ CAN JELENA WIN THE PAPRIKA CUP?

We'll have so see I'm certainly not going to predict anything just yet after all she essential started again from scratch about four weeks ago.
Its a small victories situation for Jelena at the moment one point at a time and one match at a time. I have to say I am wary because one week is not a long time to improve on the US Open we all know that she can beat great players but can also lose to pretty much anyone.

Anyways really hoping for the best she certainly deserves it.

Re: $100K Biella ~ CAN JELENA WIN THE PAPRIKA CUP?

go jelena she just has to get used to competing again, finishing off points and moving into her shots. Against flipkens she wasnt able to finish points off from a dominant position in the rally and when she got a short ball she'd hit it and then retreat. I think match practice will fix all that....

I dont like this draw. Playing qualifier is never good and then Martic

Bring it on

Re: $100K Biella ~ CAN JELENA WIN THE PAPRIKA CUP?

Can she win? Well, I always think she can win any tournament but mostly I get it wrong.. I don´t know the other players except Sprem. Like RoyBatty said she can win from everyone, but also lose from some unknown qualifier.
Anyway, good luck Jelena!

Re: $100K Biella ~ CAN JELENA WIN THE PAPRIKA CUP?

i hope she plays well ,one thing for sure after these 3 tournies she should be in better shape and hitting the ball better seeing as it's clay. i think it's smart to play on it, longer rallies should help her get a feel for the ball.

Petkovic Li Clijsters Jankovic Lisicki
Kvitova Wawrinka Gasquet Nalbandian
