Re: Ajmo Kostanic! 2009

Nice jump in the rankings for Jelena after the AO. She went up from #112 to #101. Wish she could have jumped up just one more spot!

She's only 5 points behind #100, though, and she's not defending many points until April so she should be able to get back into the top 100.

Jelena moved up 1 spot this week to #100. Finally, a Croatian woman is back in the top 100! Unfortunately, it won't last long because she has a bunch of points to defend next week and is not playing anywhere.

From Slobodna Dalamcija..
Get wel soon Jelena!

Nismo je vidjeli na teniskome terenu još od kvalifikacija Australian Opena. Pobijedila je tada u prva dva kola, a potom je izgubila od Elene Baltache.

Prošlo je od toga poraza čak tri mjeseca, a Jelena Kostanić Tošić (107. na svijetu) nije zaigrala ni na jednom turniru.

- Neću tako brzo opet na teren. Sigurno je da neću igrati još barem tri do četiri mjeseca - rekla nam je čim smo ju pitali za nastavak karijere.

Pomalo smo se prestrašili. Duga je to pauza.

- I dalje osjećam bolove u vratu. Ponekad ne mogu normalno ni hodati, a kako ću onda igrati tenis i podnositi sve te napore vrhunskog sporta. Mislim da je zasad najbolje da pričekam da to sve prođe i da se odmaram od tenisa neko vrijeme dok sve ne sjedne na svoje mjesto - rekla nam je Splićanka u Zagrebu te nam je potom opisala o kakvim se problemima u vratu radi.

- Imam dvije diskus hernije i to me jako muči. Nadam se da će brzo proći.

Pauza će biti duga, ali Jelena još ne razmišlja ozbiljno o definitivnome prekidu karijere.

- Ne. Mislim da ću još igrati tenis ako mi vrat to bude dopustio. Još se nisam predala - rekla nam je optimistično tenisačica koja je krenula u ozbiljne borbe i na nekim drugim poljima.

- Studiram u Zagrebu Poslovnu ekonomiju i zasad mi dobro ide. Zadovoljna sam programom, no tek sam u ranoj fazi studija i nadam se da ću sve uspjeti završiti u roku.

Prošle je godine Kostanić Tošić pokušavala ostati negdje oko 100. mjesta na svijetu, a godinu je uspjela završiti kao najbolja hrvatska tenisačica. Tijekom ovosezonskog odsustva sasvim se probudila Varaždinka Karolina Šprem koja je odličnim rezultatima uspjela Jelenu svrgnuti s trona najbolje hrvatske tenisačice.

Ukoliko pauza za Splićanku doista potraje još nekoliko mjeseci, u slučaju povratka tenisu imat će pravo koristiti zaštićeni renking i opet će biti u prilici na velikim se turnirima vratiti u formu te povratiti veliki dio izgubljenih bodova.

Bad news that she's injured (and could be out for another 3-4 months) but great news that she's not thinking or retiring anytime soon!
