No, nothing. It's either AO WC playoff 2014 or retirement.

Re: Jelena's 2013 comeback

She could be retiring and the 'talks' with TA are about it meaning the Aussie swing will be her last 3 events of her career, give her WCs to all of them. I'd rather she go out that way, even though fading away into oblivion is more fitting given her history.

I don't expect Jelena to make a retirement announcement... It's not her style!

I don't see the point of setting her up for three lopsided R1 losses in events she isn't prepared for when those WCs can be used for players more committed to the sport. I don't even think she could win a match at the $50K ITF level right now.

I don't think so; just people speculating about the future.

I hope Jelena's paying attention to this US Open and seeing the success of players who are *OLDER THAN SHE IS*. Of course, I know it's relentless injuries, rather than age, that has dogged her footsteps, but still, I can't help but hope she's inspired to see not just Serena but Li and Pennetta still going strong. All of them have successfully come back from injuries, too.

Yes she had injuries, but to be honest she had motivation problems primarily. She was never the same after she came back from her extended hiatus despite a few good runs (AO, WTA title and another final).

Re: Jelena's 2013 comeback

WOOOOOOOOOOOWWW!!!! If true, then amazing! And great idea to play the Aussie ITF's for hopefully some easy wins and a lot of time on court building her game back up.

Thumbs up Re: Jelena's 2013 comeback

Is not there a good team around her? Trainers, psychologists, planners..?
