What the hell is forcing her to play? She looks bored and like she doesn't want to be on the court? Seing her like that is :sad:

money. I think her father puts a lot of pressure on her to support the family.

But she doesn't even speak to her father. He said last week that they speak maybe for 1 -2 minutes every week.

That's the problem. Jelena has no support base in her life. She has little or no contact with any of her family and the closest thing she has to a friend is Borna and he is paid to stick around.

She's clearly undergoing depression issues off the court and unless she sorts her life off the court then I doubt we'll ever see her achieve her potential.

does she really need to have indepth conversations with him to feel pressure to support her mother and brother?

Not saying that's the reason. ;)

but really if she was serious about getting her game back she would take a break and actually work on her game as opposed to flying here for 2-3 days, losing and then flying to the next city.

She really needs to sort out her personal life, cause it seems it's a real mess :sad: Either she makes up with her family (dad) or she breaks with them permanently without looking back. Just my opinion

Jelena, take a long break and don't come back before everything's sorted cause watching you play like that is too painful :sad:

You know today her attitude sucked so much I DIDNT CARE if she won or lost I just wanted to see a diffrent match. It was either a fucking uncredible winner or a howler. I just hope she can find some encouragement, some belief and snap out of this style of play, nobody can hit winners that soon in a rally, not even the Williams sisters. She can at least try for herself, and her fans.

:shrug: What else is she going to do?Shes' played tennis most of her life,I can't imagine she has that many marketable skills for employers.

It would be nice to see her reach her tennis potential though.

Seriously, I don't understand why Jelly keeps playing while she doesn't give a shit... and it's really obvious when she feels like that.

She cares sometimes, so maybe she should just play less. I don't know.

Not traveling every week, just to play one pathetic match might help.

But, I really don't know.

Lord knows what goes on in that poor girl's head.

Well, I know she's picking up a paycheck everyweek for about an hour's worth of work, and that'd be motivation enough for me to do something, even if I didn't enjoy it!

Why does Dokic play if she doesn't care? She made $3,200 today, bringing her year-to-date total to $124,280. That's why she continues to play. Next topic, please..... ;)

Is that really a lot once you factor in family, coach, airfare, hotels, food, etc?

Let me put it to you this way, then: what else can Jelena Dokic do besides play tennis? ;)

beats me...:lol:

but I think it might be better to take that $3000 and take a week or two off. If she's not traveling will she need as much money?

And do what? Think about how messed up her life is off the court? If not for the Tour, she'd probably be in therapy. ;)

Perhaps she should be in therapy
