Thanks for getting the score again ;)

JELENA :D :hearts: Great way to follow up the win against Lucic. That's what I love to see. This is her first final since 2003 Zurich, I believe. It's been a while. It also means she'll get a special exempt entry into the 25K Caserta main draw next week should she choose to play, which saves a WC.

WIN THE TITLE BABY!!! :rocker2:

I'm beginning to think that JD is really serious about tennis again. Grounding out results from match points down and then recording a straight sets victory today. It looks like she means business!!!

In a final once again! It's unbelievable how well she has come back, again.

+ When points are added after next week, should be ranked around Top 350.
+ Is now Australia's 9th highest ranked woman, after only 4 tournaments!
+ SHOULD get SE in $25K Caserta next week!

This is really unbelievably great news! I was really worried that Jelena wasn't going to return to the tour at all after her long absence after the Australian events. This is a great comeback! If she wins the final, doesn't she go to close to #325 or so in the rankings?
I am a little ambivalent about her playing Caserta. That's a lot of tennis for someone who isn't used the grind. The last thing she needs is an injury. I want to see her play there, but only if she is rested and ready to go. Otherwise, it might be wise to postpone to the next week and make sure she's fully recovered. Either way though, GL in the final tomorrow!

Don't worry, next year when Jelena is a Top 20 player and Strasbourg director wants her there she can reject him ;) It's probably a good thing though, I'd like her to save her final 2 wildcards for the grass :hearts:

i am happy it got rejected, if she accepted than she would have to play 4 weeks in a row, which could lead to fatigue and tanking in matches, i think she needs rest after Caserta

Well done Jelena, this comeback is going pretty smoothly so far. I'm worried about her playing Caserta though in all honesty. She hasn't played so many matches in a week possibly since her breakthrough fortnight at Wimbledon.

If she's scheduled to play on Monday, it could simply be too much. That Strasbourg wildcard would have helped a great deal, but I'm sure they'll give it to some no hoper instead. :)

What an odd fellow :o

To refuse Dokic, Date and Groenefeld, he has balls.

Can somebody translate this for me please?

Je suis tout cela de très près. Le début de semaine à Rome, jusqu’au mercredi nous vaudra encore quelques surprises que je pourrais mettre à profit. Juste un petit mot pour vous dire que les demandes de wild cards affluent, je viens d’en refuser un certain nombre: Kimiko Date, Jelena Dokic, Anna-Lena Grönefeld…? Sans prétention j’attends mieux (en espérant avoir raison ?)

Don't worry I used the online translator and got the jist of it..

I am all that of very near. The beginning of week in Rome, until Wednesday will still be worth us some surprises which I could make profitable. Just a small word to say to you that the requests for wild cards affluent, I have just refused a certain number of it: Does Kimiko Date, Jelena Dokic, Anna-lena Grönefeld...? Without pretention do claim I wait better (while hoping to be right?)

:lol: He'll end up giving WC's to some 16 year old french girls ranked in the 800's or something..

Why to waste two wilde cards at two ex-TOP5 players? I understund his disappiontment b/c at such big tournament he expected that atleast one of ex #1 will ask for WC and try with comeback in Strasbourg (Kim, Seles or Capriati).

You really think he was expecting a former #1 to ask for a wildcard as the beginning of their comeback? :spit: :cuckoo: That is just stupid. Kim has a baby and won't come back soon, Seles is officially retired from only a few months ago, and I doubt that Capriati would choose the grand city of Strasbourg as her comeback :sad:

I think he's waiting for some top 10 players to decide they want to play, which I doubt. Can he still give them to Dokic or Date if he gets no one 'better' to give WC's too?

a) I meant that after coming back well in January, she has comeback well again in April/May.

b) I'm well aware that it's a 25K, but do you know how long it has been since she has stringed 6 wins together in a row? About 5 years! That's playing anything from Tier 1 tournaments to $10K ITF's. It's a pretty big deal for Dokic, and Dokic fans who've been waiting years for this kind off success from Jelena.

Please don't burst our bubble.
