Re: Jelena's 2007 Schedule?
Looking at the rankings a bit more closely, Anna C. is only 67 points behind JJ at this point. And I believe Anna is going to play one of the first 2 events of the season. That gives her opportunity to get the #12 seed and push Jelena down to #13. So the difference is that instead of playing one of Kim, Nadia, Martina or Elena in the round of 16, Jelena would be looking at playing Justine, Amelie, Maria or Sveta. Although I think that Jelena could beat any of these players on a given day, I like her chances of gettting to the quarters and beyond a lot better if she's facing one of the players ranked 5-8 instead of the players ranked 1-4..... Just my 2 cents, but that's why holding onto the #12 ranking could be so important for her to start the year on the right foot.
