That's really interesting. But if that's true I don't think that she can achieve something anymore.

no offence but she probably sucks now...

At least story about Jelena retiring is not true, she still has a will to play !


Play Jelena :armed:

Sanda Mamic is also back, playing Innsbruck 10,000$ in September

Well, at least she's playing.

Highlandman

I hope she gets a WildCard for this event, otherwise she probably can't play.

I wonder: She played 3 events in last 12 months, but she is still unranked? So they don't accept 10k-Quali-Losses for ranking, or?

Nice news with Sanda as well.

Well hopefully Jelena can give Jelena Jankovic some advice to tone down her schedule...

Highlandman, you dont get ranking points for 10k qualifying events.

Anyway I wish her luck - hopefully she can get some form and then work up towards bigger challengers and then lower key WTA events.

She's been at the top before and hopefully will again.

Jelena Dokic had in former even more tournaments than Jankovic :lol:

How old is she now? 25 ish? If she ever wants to mount a serious comeback, she's running out of time.

Lee-Waters
Aug 25th, 2007, 04:30 PM
She is 24 so i think she has time :D

10k Casale-ITA alternates


and I thought she had already her rock bottom before I saw this...

If she actually bothers to turn up.

Njay16
Aug 25th, 2007, 05:43 PM
She is 85th on the alternates list to play that tournament. So unless she gets a wildcard into qualifying the chances of her playing are slim. At least she is still trying though. :)

:o As a Dokic fan, these GM threads are embarrassing. At least wait til she actually PLAYS before making this announcement (which is getting old already anyway).

alexia1huff
Aug 25th, 2007, 06:17 PM
OMG!!! I've been there...

And she plays for Australia now :(

Well, 17 of 18 in MD have it as 2-6 priority.
23 of 26 in qualies have it as 2-6 priority.
and if i counted correctly 55 of the 80 girls before her have it as 2-6 priority. Meaning she has a chance to get in, but from what i've seen there it's not a great place...

Dokic will never make it back to the top of the game. If she was seriously commited to the sport she would have made different decisions in the last 2-3 years.

True, unfortunately.

Even if she cant get direct entry into this event, you know she'll get a WC if she asks for one.

:yawn: The 1.437th comeback of Jelena Dokic.
Does anyone really believe, that she take her comeback serious this time?

basically, i was trying to say that i don't think she'll have the motivation to keep trying for much longer unless she does something somewhat significant soon (as in, at least SF of a 10K) in my opinion......

i just wonder why she's trying to come back at the end of the year? Maybe she still has some health issues and wants to try it out? Is she signed for other tournaments later???

Just waiting for her withdrawal...

I don't know what others she signed up for...the entry lists are not out for tournaments after Casale yet :)

Well good luck to her. I hope it goes well. I don't want to hear about her bouncing out of a 10k event.

Talking about comebacks, where's Lucic after her tenth comeback last Spring? :confused:

I saw on youtube the match played againts Razzano in 2006 at Australian Open:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JMaRDDPxTNQ

She played very well and I don't understand how is possible that after that beautiful match she lost at 25K in Biarritz agains Eleonara Punzo (who ????)

I think she needs to play big tournament to find motivations and big tournament should give her WC

Seems that Virag Nemeth might also be trying to come back, she comitted to 10k in Romania but has withdrawn, hopefully we'll see her again soon :)
Great news about Mamic :woohoo:
Good Luck Jelenka :kiss:

Unfortunately, Mirjana's hyped "comeback" has turned out to be all big talk and no tennis action. :p

Good luck to Jelena. That is, if she actually plays, and then continues to play -- always the big question with her.

Didn't notice Nemeth there.. Hopefully they'll both get into qualies. You better go there and give us some nice reports:p

I'll believe it when I see it. The list of entries for that tournament has been available for months. I suspect she just hasn't officially withdrawn yet

King Aaron
Aug 26th, 2007, 03:11 PM
I wonder if she still has a proper agent? Seeing as she's always MIA and doesn't really commit, she probably doesn't anymore.

Anyhow, go get 'em Jelena! :unsure:

I don't know why she enters, when she withdraws so much earlier :p

She is still ALT-49 for 25k-Lecce which starts on 17th Sep.

why not focus on a player like mamic who has struggled with legitamite injuries and is trying to work her way back up the rankings instead of the joke of a "tennis player" that dokic thinks she is? :)

*JR*
Sep 4th, 2007, 07:22 PM

I wish Jeca (and K-lina) would dump the Bikic Bastards, though. They're like Hoffy minus the Criminal Conviction. :o

Cause Mamic was never Top 5 and isn't as hot? :shrug:

I do think that this thread is completely useless and unnecessary though.

Sep 6th, 2007, 10:59 PM
I have a 'simple' question. What happened to Dokic??

I remember her control freak dad. Then there was these two brothers and she fell out with her dad.

But can someone explain to me how a top ten player can dissapear into oblivion? I understand she kept playing over the past few years. So how can a top pro not even qualify for challenger events?

Sorry if it's a dumb question. I'm no expert. I just dont understand. Cant get my head round that one. I spent a while googling about her lastnight. But it's just an information blackhole.

Drugs? Psychological issues? Personal trauma? Balkan mafia blackmail??? What?!

I'm saddened by the incredulous demise of a top pro.
