In singles she beat Tsay 60 62. In R2 she plays an unranked qualifier, Jessica Pegula, who beat the #4 seed, Ahsha Rolle, in a tough three-setter. This is an excellent opportunity for Jelena to reach the QF.
In doubles, she and Nguyen beat Jones/Scholl 63 62. In the QF they play the #1 seeds, Rolle/Siegemund.
Wow, some nice news and some confusing news all at once. She's obviously in good form and it's hard to imagine she's having health issues, based on results. So why on Earth would she withdraw... I doubt she'll play some WTA's already, especially because there are none nearby coming up, so she'd have to travel quite far to get into any. And considering her earnings so far (remember her dad's delight with the fact that she got like 30+ thousand dollars at '08 RG), not to mention her earnings this season (like $10k), traveling expenses are probably a big issue. But I guess we'll see... It's great to see her doing this well, even more so cause she's the favorite to win the quarters against a 16 y.o. Gavrilova, ranked in 600's. Not to mention that trashing the top seeds in doubles that way puts her and Nguyen in the role of favorites, eventhough they're just wild-cards.
Well done Jele! I have to admit that I was expecting singles to go easier, but a win is a win. Besides, that extra energy that she put into a singles match was made up for (so to speak) in doubles. This will get her to ~355, finals would get her somewhere around 345, and a title to about 325. Not bad at all, but it would be great if she could somehow finish the year close to 250, so that she sneaks into AO qualies.
