It was only a mere few days ago when Jelena Dokic retired from a match down 0-5. She was crying on tv saying how painful it was and about how she would have played out Hobart if she could. She also said her retirement from the match had nothing to do with getting into the quali draw of the Australian Open.

Now, as some of you may forget I am a big fan of Jelena Dokic. I was very happy when she recieved a Maindraw wildcard into the Auckland tournament a few years back. I love to see her play.

I would completely respect her if she had have admitted to tanking her Hobart match. She probably would have faced alittle bit of heat from the press, and could well have gotten a small punishment from the Wta as it breaks the Wta's rules.....but she wasn't honest she lied to everyone including but not limited too: the match referee, her coach, the press, her fans.

I am not a fan of Jelena Dokic anymore

It's not that big of a deal imo. TA put her in a scheduling mess.

Exactly. Her retiring and n ot even trying vs Pennetta was all the fault of TA. Had they awarded her a main draw WC she would have given it her all at Hobart.

No offence, but do you think you could try to be a bit more rational? Her real fans knew that she would tank that match because of the mess Tennis Australia left her in. Her real fans have accepted that and can see that the Australian Open is more important than a small Tier III event.

Admitting that she "tanked" the match would result in a fine from WTA Officials, a media backlash and people would call her dishonest for admitting to tanking the match anyway. So as you can see, lose-lose situation, the only difference being, she did not face unnecessary consequences, and why should she put herself in that position?

The worst part is that he thinks people care, though. Like, his newfound hate for Dokic must be made into an announcement!

Whatev! Indeed lame. TA knew all along that Jelena's return focused on the Australian Open, and therefore her receiving a wildcard for Hobart and then not receiving one for the AO slap in her face. Nobody admits to tanking a match. She did what she had to do.

While kittyking's intentions are all too obvious, the real losers in this thread are the Dokictards, as usual.

Putting ANY kind of blame on TA regarding Dokic is so incredibly pathetic and stupid, it's not even funny. She does NOT deserve a maindraw WC at all. She doesn't "deserve" anything. She should be happy about whatever support she's getting from them, and I guess she is. But no, her retarded and delusional fans for some reason believe she should be given anything she wants, without having delivered notable results yet. LMAO.

There were MDWCs handed to players who also haven't delivered "notable results" though. I would agree with your logic if we were talking about a nation which had lots of up and coming talent, but this is Australia. There is most certainly an argument for Dokic getting an MDWC over the likes of a player like Ferguson, even if it was just based on her Hobart wins (and her past success/recent hard work).

Personally I'm over the fact that she has to play qualifying, in fact I don't blame TA anymore, this is probably the best thing for Jelena. But the argument for her getting an MD WC isn't as inconceivable as you're making it out to be. :shrug:

You are viewing it from a different angle. Sure, if you compare Dokic to all those other losers who will be getting WC's, then she does pretty well.
I have a big issue with Grand Slams giving out WC's to local randoms. Just remember the Olivia Lukasomething fiasco. So to me, this comparison doesn't mean much.
The facts are that Dokic did not win the playoff, that she hasn't played properly in years, that after getting a WC 2 years agop she completely fell off the radar. Giving her another WC would be sending out a very wrong message, and I'm glad they didn't do it.
About the Hobart situation, it was unfortunate but Dokic is not the first one facing this issue, and frankly I can't remember anyone handling it as poorly as she did. At the very least she could have finished the match against Pennetta. And that interview afterwards was more than laughable in hindsight.
Let's just say this certainly doesn't make me respect her more. Not that anyone cares about that. But to me it's an indication that's she not approaching this comeback the right way. Time will tell.

Fair enough.

At the very least she could have finished the match against Pennetta. And that interview afterwards was more than laughable in hindsight.
Have you even considered the fact that maybe there was a slight issue with her ankle though? I mean, I'm the first one to concede that whatever she felt probably wasn't painful enough for her to stop playing the match, but I also don't believe that it was a complete non-issue. That's to say, I think the slight pain she was feeling, coupled with the fact that she wanted to give AO qualies a go, propelled her to make that decision. The latter reason was probably the main reason, but I do think her ankle had something to do with it. Playing on against Pennetta would probably have been useless seeing as she probably would have lost extremely easily anyway, and she would have wasted even more energy, as she was already fatigued.

I see where you're coming from, but I also understand Jelena's decision, and I don't think it should be held against her. Lots of players would have taken a similar course of action.

I am a big fan of Dokic and I don't like GoDom's disliking/hate of Jelena but the bolded part has been my exact feeling from the minute that Jelena getting a MDWC was a possibility.

First of all, KittyQueen is an attention-whore and no one cares what he thinks. :lol:

I dont think this was TA's fault - they can give WC's to whomever they want, with or without credible justification. So many players have the dilemna of doing well in a tourney or heading to Qualies, so Dokic wasn't in a really unforeseen circumstance. Her fans should definitely feel upset that she didn't get a MDWC because they are, obviously, her fans. I dont blame Jelena at all for tanking against Pennetta, but I would have rather seen her fight and guage her level against a top 50 opponent instead of play 5 games. I can understand why people might be upset about her apparent "recovery", but did anyone honestly think she was THAT injured? KittyKing is plain stupid for being upset that Dokic beat Erakovic after retiring the week before.

She couldn't just leave Hobart--she would not have been able to play the AO--aren't those the rules? I thought I read that somewhere. She did what she felt she had to do. She probably isn't the first.

The post is so pathetic. Dokic thrashed one of his "kitty princesses" and that is that. Australia 1-New Zealand 0. He will not pleased that Sasha Jones lost easily in the first round too!
