:sobbing: :hug: Jelena

That first set was very close, Dokic had 5 BP chances in Jill's second service game and she just couldn't convert. Only 2/9 BP's :help: Her serve seemed better today though, if only in the first set. 6 Aces, 4 DF's and 61% First serves in the first set, compared to 2 Aces, 3 DF's and 41% First serves.

Still, Jill is like #60 or something, and Jelena was able to keep the score nice and tight. She should be proud, Tier II quallies is a big step forward and she managed to not embarrass herself.

:yeah: See you in Bratislava next week, Jelena. :) :unsure:

Keep working at it Jelena. A WTA main draw can't be far off.

Jelena took Craybas much closer than Anne "I'm heading for the top 50" Keothavong managed recently, so this must mean Jelena is heading for the top 30.

Expected result in the end, but nice to see that Jelena at least made a match of it and kept it close.

Jill is the consummate profession and a great example for the rest of the tour. She was always a very likely winner in this match.

But Dokic didn't embarress herself. I don't ever see her returning to former glories but if she keeps at it, top 100 remains a realistic goal.

Its still good to see her back playing again though:).

Hopefully she'll play the 100K in Bratislava next week and get back inside the top 150 before the end of the year:D!

Well I didn't even expect Jelena to get this far considering she has only been playing in crappy 25K clay-court events and just came off a month hiatus from playing any matches. It was a close match, which is a good sign. I hope she plays some more higher ITF events before she puts an end to the 2008 season so she can climb up the rankings and help her make a real push in 09.:D

Jelena :sobbing: Respectable result nonetheless, she did well to even win a match.

Now PLEASE just keep playing. For the love of God.

Couldn't have said it better myself. :yeah:

If you were able to win a match this week and push a top 60 player, you should be fine for the $100k. If you played at least another event or two this season, i'd be happy. :D

i think i recall reading in an interview that Keothavong was actually aiming for the top-10 :eek:

Jelena. :( Craybas was always going to be a tougher opponent than Martic, but it's good to see that Jelena went out there and gave it a shot. A win under the belt in a WTA tournament, albeit in qualies, will hopefully spur her on to playing more and more. :D

Well she was holding her own which was good to see. Hopefully she can keep on improving going into the Aussie season.

its still dissapointing, Jelena has much more game than Jill ...as their previous match in Zurich shows when Jelena won 1 and 2....but she will get confidence from playing two matches :)

once shes confident again she will be trashing players like Jill again, for sure

dokic's time is over!!!!
Whooooaaaaa why you being a jackass?

Her time will be over if she isn't successful in her comeback. Yeah it's been a long road back but she has been working her ass off this year and her results are only going to improve her cause.

I just don't understand why people have to come into threads and leave nasty comments about players:mad:

This really isn't a bad loss. :lol: What has Jill been doing for the past few months? I haven't been following with dedication but I'm pretty sure she's been playing for most if not all of it. What has Jelena been doing? We can only assume training and maybe playing a practice set here and there. She got 8 games against the no.63 in the world. She's not even in the top 150 at the moment. It's really not that bad. :shrug:
