not only did mirjana choke badly, but apparently her and dokic don't like each other. the entire match was marked by both players verbally celebrating almost every point they won

It sounds like it was an entertaining match. I wish I could have seen it.

And what's your point? That Jelena is the better player? Yeah, that's right! :D

Wouldn't Dokic and Lucic not like each other due to nationalistic Serbia-Croatia situations already? And these two were also considered the future of tennis when they broke out respectively, and now they're trying to come back, so I can see why...

Well I never saw them getting along, both washed up former Wimbledon semi-finalists. But Dokic won and thats all that matters, and if it was from 2 MP down, then fantastic.

Wonder what went down at the post match handshake though. :lol:

Dokic is dating that stupid Tino who happens to be a Croat.

:haha:

Really happy Jelena won, though I had no idea they hated eachother. Probably made the win even sweeter for Dokic, and tougher for Lucic. I wonder if there was a handshake. Really wish I could've seen this one.

Both Dokic and Lucic are supposed to play Caserta next week. :haha:

Rematch anyone? :bigcry:

I don't think Serb-Croat tensions are that bad between pro tennis players. Djokovic-Ljubicic had one of the friendliest meetings at the net I have ever seen during Monte Carlo. :shrug:

Don't know if they don't like each other and, frankly, don't care, but I am happy for both girls. They both have something in this match that they can take away and build on. Sneezy, obviously, builds on the win, but Lucic can be happy with the fact that the second set was hers for the taking and so must know that she can get to that point again.

Lucic and Dokic don't like each other because the thread starter said so? Please people get some facts before assuming that.

The saddest thing about that match though is the fact it happened in a 25k challenger instead of a Tier 2 event where I think both of them belong........

because they were pumped up about winning every point and used self talk to motivate themselves, therefore they hate each other???

all it indicates to me is that they both wanted the win very bad, and i think theyre both determined to get back to the upper echelons of the game..

They are not friend at all. Period.

I'm not friends with lots of people, does not mean I hate them. :lol:

Anyway, why should they like each other? I don't ever remember them having any sort of contact in the past. To each other they're just another tennis player. :shrug:

This makes me happy for a bunch of reasons. Dokic won, first off. It also tickles me that they were both trying so hard and acting like divas! :hearts:

Wish I could have seen it. Handshake?

I'm delighted that Dokic won from 2 MPs down cos it shows she really wanted to win and I think thats what she's been missing the last few years. Keep it going Jelena:D.

Dokic never had any friends on the tour thanks to a) her dad and b) her lack of respect for anybody (inherited no doubt). She plays to win, not to make friends

I know she was friendly with Petrova, Myskina, Martinez, Capriati, Clijsters, among a few others I can't think of off the top of my head. Not everyone is friends with eachother on the Tour, that's nothing new. Dokic is no exception.
