she is number 8 seed in china next week - but the number of matches she has won this year can be counted on one hand
does the ranking-system go several years back?or is it soemthink else which is keeping her in top 100
Damir taught her magic :lick: :lol: :eek:
Go Jelena, maybe you can a part in next Harry Potter :lol:

Zurich is carrying her ranking. Once that drops off, she'll be ranked around 90.

Dokic har lige som Tina begge en masse points fra Zurich sidste år, kan de ikke forsvare disse points, kan de begge ryge ud af TOP 100.
EJ er det rigtigt, det håber jeg iverfaldt ikke.. Lad os håbe at hendes mentalitet er iorden, og kæmper for de points.. Pigebarnte skal altså snart tjene penge på kontoen:rolleyes:

ok....so there is some logic after all.....well she should beat tanusugarn next week so maybe she'll just manage to stay in the top 100

She desperately needs to find her form soon.
I seriously doubt she will come close to defending her ~400 pts earnt at Zurich in the remainder of the year, but if she can just get some wins, maybe earn about 150 pts then she shouldn't fall too far.
Maybe falling will be good as it will force her to enter more lower tiered events?

OMG I never realised thing were so bad. I thought she was still top 40.
Sep 19th, 2004, 11:46 AM
karen, she currently is in the top 40 (just!)
But she has 370 pts coming off from zurich soon, and also a QF from Linz....once those pts come off she will be ranked about 90. So, unless she starts playing well, Jelena will soon be struggling to stay in the top 100!!! :eek:
Sep 19th, 2004, 12:32 PM
If she don't start winning, she will after Linz have lost about 480 points, and will be outsite TOP 100 with about 300 points...

Dont worry, Dokic knows how the ranking works better than any of us;)
I'm pretty sure she is going to get some kind of injury before those Zurich points come off.

oh she really needs to do well, i was really scared this would be happening to Daniela too. thank goodness she picked up her form, but lets hope Jelena goes far and makes a good Comeback to the Finals like Daniela!

Jelena's fave season is during the fall... she always do well on carpets/indoors...
she did well against Dechy at the US Open...
i m sure she will do well during the fall ;)
