Making a thread before MD is out is a bad luck

I'm watching you.

It will be interesting to see how Jelena will play here, after winning one of the strongest ITF tournament and now having to step it down to 50k! Her smallest tournament since the 25k's last year (And in the same time being only 3 places away from WTA MD)

Yes, it's an indoor hardcourt. I thought it was outdoors, but indoors should suit Jelena's game even more. Kerber, Arvidsson and Parmentier are her hardest opponents IMO.

Jelena Dokić ~ Kim Clijsters
Angelique Kerber ~ Simona Halep

Mona Barthel - Jelena Ostapenko
Petra Cetkovská - Denisa Allertová

Yeah, Sofia could be tough! But an in-form Jelena should double bagel all these girls indoors...

I think so, too. Let's hope she takes the tournament seriously and doesn't think too much about just missing the MD of Linz.

Angelique Kerber ~ Simona Halep

Re: ITF $50.000 Joue-les-Tours [half-scared]

NO NO NO! Danilo was supposed to make the thread, after the MD was released, and don't even get me started on the title! Jelena isn't going to win this tournament now.


She's playing this because even though she's ranked in the TOP 70, without her AO points she's outside the TOP 140. It may not make much difference to her ranking now, but it could do wonders for her situation post AO.

Good luck Jelly Ajde.

She could still play better tournaments and win matches IMO
