Match play: the key,
Quite obviously i think all Jelena needs is some good solid match play! Like last year she entered Tokyo and any subsequent tournaments underprepared relative to the other players who had many matches under their belt......and practice just doesnt compare.
Jelena is a confidence player. To get her confidence back she needs to swallow some pride and enter a tier 3-4 to get some CONSECUTIVE wins and maybe title #6. You can come up with various or a combo. of factors but i think once she has some good wins that per se is enough.
Ofcourse, this is all provided that she doesn't have a great tournament at NASDAQ.
Good luck Jelly!
Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!
