I just read that with her playing for SCG this week in Fed Cup, she can participate at the Olympic games. Is this true?

If so...:bounce: :hearts:

there was a thread bout this not long ago. The tennis federation decided to give Jelena special treatment because Jelena was unable to fulfill the requirements of playing 2 yrs fed cup previous because she has only been eligable to play for S&M this fed cup tie. (Because u hav to have represented the country for certain amount of years; i think 2) Therefore because she has played in fed cup this year & it was the first time she could've represented S&M they hav allowed her entry into the olympics.

She just won her first FedCup match for Serbia & Montenegro so she is now officially eligible for Athens.

SCG 3-0 Lithuania

Jelena Janković - Edita Liachoviciute 6:1, 6:1
Jelena Dokić - Lina Stanciute 6:0, 6:4
Ana Timotić/Dragana Zarić - Liachoviciute/Stanciute 7:5, 6:3

The two Jelanas were rested for doubles. Sweden next. Qualification to World Group be
well cool. Still long way to go.
