Good luck to Heydi!!

Vamos Jelena! :armed: :D :yeah:

didnt' Angelika Roesch beat elena Dementieva a couple of times? what's she doing in 25K qualies?

Great to see from Dokic-- she actually look com. to making it back, good for her!

Poor Jelena - she really deserves to be at least back in the Top 100 and back on the WTA Tour. I feel so sorry for her. She seems so lost out there. As for Alexandra - staring out her opponents, beating Jelena and then saying 'that's the first of her ten wins at Wimbledon this year' - blimey! For sure strut your stuff when you are in the Top 20, but it's a bit diva like in the first round of qualifying at a Slam :lol: Bless her!!!

:yeah: to Jelena for not getting discouraged. All this match practice can only help. Hopefully she's been practicing on the clay ever since she lost @ Wimby. Good luck Jelena!

Edit: Good to see Babs in the draw too.

Glad to see that she is not giving up... :yeah: Keep winning matches and getting your game back together in these ITF events . Hopefully she will be back on track by the Aussie Summer Hardcourts come January :D :bounce:

I really hope Jelena can find the winning way again.

Good luck to Jelena! :worship: :worship:

(And also to Angelika Roesch, because I see her name there;) )

Yeah, but now Angelika Roesch is on #339 in the Ranking :sad: :sad: - at the end of '05 she was on 399 :sad: (End of 2004 on 235 and 2003 on 210)

Nice to see Jelena keeps plugging away despite the disappointment of Wimbledon qualies. Good luck! :)

When start the qualies?

Jun 23rd, 2006, 10:44 PM
Allez Dokic!

Jun 23rd, 2006, 10:48 PM
She really is making an effort, isn't she? Well I really, really hope it comes together for her. Tough to see so much disappointment.

Jun 23rd, 2006, 10:49 PM

Good for Jelena, wasting NO time to get back in action. I'm so glad to see further proof that she's taking this latest comeback attempt seriously. :hug:

And there's poor old Babsi Schwartz in that draw, also a WC! :eek: Best of luck to both of them. :)

Wow I wasn't expecting Jelena to be in a tournament so soon but i'm pleasantly surprised

I have never been a fan of Dokic's. For one thing I was put off by her arrogance. But the way she is approaching her latest comback and the humility and realism she has shown in interviews has gained new admiration from me. She really does seem to be going the right way with this comeback. And even though she lost to Stevenson at Roehampton the dignity she handled the defeat with contrasted alot with the way Stevenson carried herself.

I hope she is sucessful getting her career back on track and that she is able to get herself back on the main tour in time.
