Australians are all Smiles as they make the Semis
http://www.tennis.com.au/pages/image.aspx?assetid=RDM39850.5722599306&blobType=landscape
The Jelena Dokic blog from Singapore...

Hey everyone. It is great to announce that we have made the SemiFinals of the Fed Cup. Samantha, Alicia and I are all very happy to have done a great job representing Australia here so far. Our initial team was the 3 of us and Jarmila, our 2nd best player, but in the beginning of the week she had to pull out because of severe sickness. It definitely sucks that this happened because she is a great girl and she would have loved to have been out there playing with us. We didn't have time to replace her, but we were joined with our hitting partner Casey Dellacqua and coach Rennae Stubbs.
We arrived in Singapore and were just amazed at its beauty. It is just wonderful here and the people are super nice. Not to mention that the food was yum, so that's always a plus. These fans are also amazing, they just love the tennis and really showed us love.

http://images.smh.com.au/ftsmh/ffximage/2009/02/04/dokic_wideweb__470x316,0.jpg


In the 1st round, we had to take on Tunisia. I opened up play for the tie on the first day against Selima Sfar. She is a great player and gave me a hard time, but I was able to barely edge her out in both sets. I felt that I played well, it was fairly nice weather today, good conditions, so both of us played well. Selima led 5-3 in the first, before I turned it around as I started finding my range with my forehand. I then was able to take it 7-6(3) and then in the second all I needed was one break and I picked up the win.

On day 2, Samantha Stosur had to play the youngster Ons Jabeur. Samantha started off amazingly as she eased to the first set 6-1, but then Ons started chasing more balls down and really forced Sam into errors to get the upset 1-6 6-2 6-3.

http://www.tennis.com.au/pages/image.aspx?assetid=RDM39849.5560533218&blobType=portait

This would lead to Alicia and I teaming up in the doubles against Selima and Ons to decide the tie. This was the first time that Alicia and I played together and we did well I think. We started off slowly and took time to adjust to each other, but were able to handle the pressure points well in the first to take it 7-6(1). The second was really close, but they upped their games to edge us 6-4. That made us that more determined though as we knew our dreams were one set away from being ended. So this urged us on to win it, and we just cruised to the win 6-2 in the third.
It just felt amazing to pick up this win for Australia. After the win, Alicia, Sammy and I all ran around the court jumping around and hoisting the flag. Oh, it was just a phenomenal feeling.
We then got a few days rest, to which led to some bad weather kicking in here. But in the mean time, we all just bonded, played charades, went shopping and ate some great Singaporean food. But I find the need to say that I won charades! Go Me! But besides all this fun, we also worked hard out on the practice courts to prepare for Great Britain.

In the first day, I took on Elena Baltacha and the conditions were horrible. It was windy and cold, but it seemed to affect her more than me. My forehand and serve really helped me pull out that tight second set though, as she had break points but my serve would bail me out. And then it was one break that would decide it as she lifted her level and made a great match of it in the second.

On day 2, Sammy took on Laura Robson. It was still cold and windy, but this really hurt Sammy's chances as her topspin forehand kept being mistimed and led to all kinds of errors from her. But Laura played great as well and deserved the 6-0 6-0 win. Once again it came down to the doubles with me and Alicia against Robson and Baltacha. Alicia and I really were untouchable in the first as we poached on every short loopy ball, smacked every return hard and low. Our aggressive play in the doubles helped us take the win 6-0 7-6(5).

We made the Semifinals with this win and we are ecstatic. Sammy is of course a bit disappointed about going 0-2, but she was cheered up when she heard that the SF will be played in AUSTRALIA. Sydney to be exact. When we told this we just on cloud nine. This will definitely come in handy for us against Serbia. To have everyone pretty much behind us giving us support will hopefully help us to make the final.
That's it from me for now. Until next time.

-Jelena.

Off Court - Tour Into Quarter Finals

http://d.imagehost.org/0545/who.jpg

The Who? What? Where? Tour has made it into the quarter finals of the 'Best Game in 2010' tournament. In the first round we comfortably defeated LPT 63 60, setting up a tricky match against WRTT (who had previously upset seeded PYW in the opening round).

In our second round match we again were off to a good start, taking the first set 61, we then found ourselves 51 down in the second set. After a string of votes we made our way back to 65, eventually winning the match on a tie break. We will face FPTT or Suicide Tennis in the quarter finals. Voting is still in progress for round 2, but keep an eye on the thread for the quarter finals. Thankyou.

Hey guys!!
It was a dream come true for me and Lindsay to win FED CUP!
I must have say that when we were 2 all I was very upset, cuz it was me losing those 2 very close matches, so you can imagine how I wanted to win in doubles :)
From the start me and Lindsay did get along very well, which I believe helped us to get this title. We had alot of laughs and great time playing!
You probably heard that Mary-Joe Fernandez said That USA will not pass round 1 if they will have players like myself with no experience in early 30's and Lindsay, closer to retiring then winning Fed Cup? Well Mary-Joe we just drinking champagne thinking of you!!
Well guys we just arrived with Lindsay in Los Angeles and you know, city won't wait ;)
Thanks for all your support!! Keep up the good work!!
oh and I would forgot!! MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR!! :)
