View Full Version : Can Jelena win in Miami

Mar 19th, 2003, 07:50 AM
Jelena is not doing great at the start of this season, how do you feel she will performme in Miami over the next two weeks. She has been given a tough draw with the choice of Kuznetsova or Ruano Pascual in the second round.

she better be ready, or she will be out 2nd RD.

I hope she's playing better. I really do.

Mar 19th, 2003, 08:33 AM
I hope she'll do well too, hope she'll at least be in the semis. But as for winning the entire thing, unless Kim pulls out of the tournament ;)

Mar 19th, 2003, 08:47 AM
yeah...she'll win miami 2020.;)

Mar 19th, 2003, 08:49 AM
Yeah i think Jelena may just win (one match that is). ;)

its a tough draw but anything is a tough draw for Jelena of late. I do think she should be back by this event and hope she draws Sveta in r2 cos her game suits Jelena whereas Ruano will make Jela play way too many balls. I can see Jelena making the semis if her game is back and she'll definately give Kim a nice tussle as she has done in all their previous encounters.

I know its asking alot at this stage, but i think she should be very fresh having not played much this year and is really hungry to get a solid result. If she doesnt find her game here im sure shell get there at Sarasota (tier 4) where she is defending champ and its a smart move to play that before the BIG clay events!!!

I think the author of the thread meant "win IN Miami"so no need for the smart remarks. I don't think Jelena will win the tournament. But if she can proove to herself she can win by passing her 2nd rnd Im sure she could make the 4th rnd. Hope she goes well!! Good luck Jelena!!

even that Sarasota tier 4, she will not win.;)

you are acting like one eh.;)

I only say the truth. :wavey: :devil:

Mar 19th, 2003, 11:17 AM
She has as much chance of winning matches here as Koubek does in the men's event - in other words, she'll probably win one but then lose in the next round.

BasicTennis, sweetstuff, in what dimension do you speak the truth? :kiss:

Mar 19th, 2003, 11:24 AM
she'll go out in 2nd round

Mar 19th, 2003, 11:58 AM

never say naver! :D

Mar 19th, 2003, 12:12 PM
She'll wake up in European clay season

Mar 19th, 2003, 02:01 PM
eeeeehhhhhhh............. no

Mar 19th, 2003, 03:23 PM
hope she can win some matches at least....the whole thing? i dont think so...

Mar 19th, 2003, 03:35 PM
Sorry, she'll get humiliated once again by either Ruano Pascual or Kuznetsova.

My predictions:

Kuznetsova def. Dokic 6-4 6-1
Ruano Pascual def. Dokic 6-1 6-1

Can Jelena win in Miami


even that Sarasota tier 4, she will not win.

She'll definitely lose 1st round there, since the whole tourney is Top 50 players. Lena's there too, so it's a foregone conclusion.

I've heard it said that this loss of form coincides with her split from Damir. Maybe. Maybe not. At any event, I don't think she'll regain her form for no reason. Something has change. New coach. Clay court season. More lesbian sex. SOMETHING.

And she's played so poorly, she can't cut down her number of tournaments. if she wants to stay in the top ten. whihc menas not enough rest, no time to work on improving her game.

I think she's on the Burn-out Express, somebody (as Ian Anderson would say) "....stole the handle, and the train, it won't stop going no way to slow down."
