Jelena's name is on the Alternates list for a 50.000 $ event in the United States which starts February 20th.

According to the "Tennis Reporters" Jelena will return to ITF tours.

She is going to play in Las Vegas from 27th February at "Tennis Channel Open", 75.000 $!

i.e. ITF St. Paul.

I'm not sure that dropping back down to the ITF Women's Circuit is the way to go. It did little to help Jelena last year. I think she has improved her attitude a lot since then, but she's always tended to play to the level of her opponents.

It's the only way. Unless she quits of course. WTA tournies just do not give her WC's any more.

At least if she drops back to ITF's, when it comes time for MD wc's into the Aus tournaments next January - she can still imply that it's been ages since she's played. Just like this January, if u didn't know better, you'd think she hadn't played at all in 2005 except in Pattaya. So next January she can still say "it's been a long time away from the court, blah blah blah".

Jelena in the ITFs last year wasn't that bad. She did ok, usually losing to decent players (except one bad loss where she was apparently injured).
With her new fitness and form, she shouldn't have much trouble in ITF events. Easily winning or at least making it far in both she has committed to. Thus her ranking SHOULD go up so that she can qualify for WTA tournament qualifying draws.

She is also choosing ITFs in the USA leading me to believe she wants to play Miami & Indian Wells.

Only MD WC she got(actually played) into Australian tournies this year was fully earned by beating all the rest of Oz players.

Well Ithink it will be a kind of hard for her to be in those tournaments but she will get better and I believe she can be back at her best level and I hope she will
Go Jelena go

They'd be crazy not to. With her immense talent and beauty, Jelena is always going to be a huge drawcard.

Hahaha, very funny! Jelena told she will never play for Australia, it's the lie made by herself!

That's actually incorrect. Jelena never said anything about never playing under the Australian flag. In fact, in all the interviews she's been asked about representing Australia prior to defecting back she stated that it was something she'd never rule out. In fact, I believe during the time of her rumored return back to Australia you posted a series of random articles from Serbia and Croatia which are hardly epicentres of believable journalism or truth stating that Jelena's manager Drago Diklic (who I am not even sure exists) said she would never represent Australia.

Don't confuse the claims of fictional characters with that of Jelena. Jelena never minces words. It is the multitude of ridiculous and fictitous news reports concocted by the Serbian media that causes people to be skeptical of anything that is reported out of that country.

MilanDokic
Feb 24th, 2006, 03:50 PM
Yes, she said she will never play for Australia, but You evidence haven't read Serbian newspapers!

Sanitary means "of or relating to health or the protection of health." But natural English-speakers use the word in the sense of hygiene rather than illness.

I take "bad sanitary situation" to refer to Jelena's illness, rather than Las Vegas being an unhygienic place.

On 15th February, Jelena withdrew from ITF St. Paul (week of 20th February), which we believe is due to an unspecified illness (although some believe she has lost her motivation after her fairy-tale return to Australia turned into an on-court nightmare).

Today the main draw for ITF Las Vegas came out, without Jelena's name in it. An unofficial source had already claimed that she had withdrawn:
http://www.wtaworld.com/showthread.php?t=222262 (http://www.wtaworld.com/showthread.php?t=222262)

Jelena is on the entry-lists for Indian Wells and Miami, but will need a wild card even to play in the qualifying (her current ranking is #407).

Precious and fragile gifts must be handled with care.
Get well soon Jelena!

Yes but Jelena wasn't on any entry lists during Indian Wells. She just didn't get a WC for it, whether she was offerred one and declined, I dunno but she wasn't committed to any other event.

For Miami, she actually committed to Redding & Hammond, which are to be played the weeks of Miami, but then withdrew from them days later. This is odd even for Jelena who has been waiting till a few days before the tournaments to withdraw.

What I'm hoping is that Jelen has in fact been sick and is recovering and training to get fit again after her illness. She had kept her commitments to the ITF events until the last moment making sure she couldn't play them. When she didn't get a WC to Indian Wells she decided to commit to the two 25Ks in the US. However she got offered a WC into either Q or MD and so she quickly withdrew from these tournaments. And now she is in Miami training away ready to be fit for her comeback :)

We should be happy that Jelena has started commiting to tourney's again, although I might be bad reped for this, I understand Jelena's postion I come from a family where my parents are dominate and we all rebelled and didnt talk for a while. That time in my life was crap it seemed I could not do anything right and was feeling majorly depressed and couldnt function properly. I used to know Jelena personally (when we used to play juniors) and I know that her family is a major part of her life and from what I gather her life at the moment is very alone. My opinion is that she needs to talk to her parents again and maybe visit them to get her back on track. Although that Damir might do something stupid when she does go back. I know that he loves her very much like any father loves his daughter and he wants to protect her like every father does its just sometimes his actions can be very silly and not be well thought out. Anyway thats just my opinion and what happened to me, I really hope that Jelena gets back on track beacuse the top 100 and top 50 are calling her name.

I know it seems like a really bad idea but to talk and make up with your parents and talk things over I know that her decision skills and overall happiness will benefit. I know I shouldnt compare my situation to Jelena's but when I did talk to my parents again and when I saw them and spoke to them again I felt so much better and my life was back on track I think its the stability they provide. I know we all see Damir as crazy and thought less but he is her dad and she has known him all of her life and deep down probably I think misses him on some level. So even if they just talk again, Jelena and I are the same (from what I remember) we are both very head strong and know what we want and its hard to admit our mistakes, however saying this I know she will make the best decision for her. She always did that on and off the court.

it depends if it is a late withdrawel or not. Tons of ITF players have fines because alot withdraw late due to seeing if they can get into a higher tournament in the same week or something else.

I like Jelena and I always defend her when people say stupid things about her but to blame Tino is just stupid. When Jelena talked about him in Australia her face lit up she obviously adores him and if he makes her feel that way then I don't know why people dislike him.

Why anyone thinks he has anything to do with Jelena's loss of form, I have no idea. The main thing is that if Jelena wants to get back to the top she has to do it herself. There is no point in us blaming others, it is Jelena's problem and it is her doing (obviously it stems back to her awful father and what a complete dumbass he is - but we'll just focus on the now ;) )

& I don't know what Priority 1 is, it just says she is priority 2?

I was ironic ;)

However, as you said "her face lit up" - that's exactly why some might consider she's in trouble and the reason is Tino. She's in love and love is blind. We have no idea what he's doing or how he's affecting her behind that strong emotion. Yes he pushed her to return to OZ, but same time he does not to seem pushing her to play ITF events. Maybe he is pushing her not enough like Damir did?
Men in love don't like usually beside thier girlfriends other men. She still does not have coach.
For example she was also quite happy under Damir's hard hand. Years later, well you know.

Even if I drop all mentioned speculations. One can't ignore possibility that big love might not exactly be best thing while she's trying to ressurect her tennis life.

We here also want to see successful tennis player Jelena Dokic not only happy housewife somewhere in Croatia.

I don't necessarily agree. Jelena stated that Tino is the one pushing her to work hard and that he's in the gym with her at 6 am every morning pushing her and competing with her in order to push her harder. Anyone who watched him during the Razzano match when he was pumping his fist and shouting his support would be hard pressed to argue that Tino is the reason for her downfall, it's clearly obvious that he wants her to win just as badly as she wants to win.

This has little to do with Tino. It's obvious Jelena is very much in love and happy with Tino and this is great for her personal life. Her fans need to stop being so selfish and realise that tennis is not the be all and end all of life. It's in Jelena's greater interests to be happy off the court than to be a tennis champion. If she can do both, then that's great but she isn't obligated to return to her best if she chooses not to. That decision rests with Jelena and given that Tino has already done so much to help her, it would be hard to shift the burden of guilt onto him. Not to mention the fact that if Tino was trying to sabotage Jelena's career he would have convinced her to stay with his brother as coach. Jelena has shown that she makes her own decisions and should be treated accordingly.

jd4eva, you are twisting my words. I did not state that Tino is doing it on purpose - sabotagin her career. And about Borna not staying - don't forget that another love story came in (K.Sprem). That's why most likely older brother left her.

We only know that since mid 2003 when Tino got involved(excluding one flashy Zürich'03 result) nothing have worked for her in terms of tennis. Is it related or not? Well it's very temting to draw conclusions.

...and about beeing selfish fan. Well don't forget we are tennis player fans here in first place. If there is no tennis any more then how "normal" of one would be to be big fan of another mens wife/girfriend? Hm...

and to conclude topic about Tino - I just wanted to juggest that so called Tino bashers, may have some serious points to back it up.
I personally have stopped to draw any kind of 100% waterproof conclusions related to Jelena long ago. I'm just going with flow these days. :)

I personally have stopped to draw any kind of 100% waterproof conclusions related to Jelena long ago. I'm just going with flow these days. :)

Firstly: By the time Tino came into the picture Jelena was already in a sharp decline. She had a horrible end to the 2002 Season and her poor form continued into 2003. Her slump didn't begin at the time Tino came into the picture, it had already manifested itself previously. Her slump has a lot more to do with the disintegration of her familial base than it does with Tino.

Secondly: Borna continued coaching Jelena well after he started dating Karolina. So I don't think there's a conflict of interest there. Not to mention that Borna and Karolina are allegedly over so it would not rule out the possibility of him coaching Jelena again if that was the catalyst for their split.

Thirdly: Just because we are tennis fans does not legitimise our selfishness. Yes, it would be great if Jelena came back to the level she was once at but a lot of fans need to look beyond the tennis court and really examine what is in the best interests of Jelena. A true fan will personally want what's best for the welfare for Jelena in lieu of superificial tennis results that might be antagonistic to her happiness.

I agree with Rosh on most points.

As for what I think would be best for Jelena, I think it would be BEST FOR HER if she focused her life back on tennis and trying to become a great player again like she can be, making a living and money of course. Outside from that as long as her dad's out of her life and she's in some type of touch with her other family (which I don't know she is) and she's happy with Tino (which she seems to be), then I'm happy for Jelena the person... not Jelena the tennis player, whom I love more than anything. :p

I'm not gonna totally go in depth here, but all in all, Rosh is right. I remember disliking Bikic, quite possibly only because he is Borna's brother, but when I had read that he pushed Jelena to return to Australia, I realized that it's not really his fault that his brother is a terrible coach.

Her slump didn't begin at the time Tino came into the picture, it had already manifested itself previously. Her slump has a lot more to do with the disintegration of her familial base than it does with Tino.

Desintegration with her family started already in mid US hardcourt season 2002. Remember calls before Rubin match when she was in tears. Despite that she had miltiple SF results. Also real family row started in Fielderstadt when only few tournies where left. Plus she had very nice doubles results in late 2002. So that's not valid point. She also had quite OK first part of the 2003 with multiple Tier I QF-s when she worked with Heinz. Yes, she had few 1st roud losses also, but she was sick in January so she lacked good preparation.


Secondly: Borna continued coaching Jelena well after he started dating Karolina. So I don't think there's a conflict of interest there. Not to mention that Borna and Karolina are allegedly over so it would not rule out the possibility of him coaching Jelena again if that was the catalyst for their split.

Well few weeks ago where Borna and Karolina still togheter. Go check her forum if you don't belive me.

Yes, it would be great if Jelena came back to the level she was once at but a lot of fans need to look beyond the tennis court and really examine what is in the best interests of Jelena.

I'm glad that you as a true fan are happy with current situation then.
And I guess I'm not the true fan obviously according to this logic.

ITF players regularly enter more than one event a week, this is because of the many ITFs each week and not knowing which they will make. By having priorities they can stay committed to an event as Priority 2 and not play it (playing their top priority event) and not get fined.

Jelena was entered into 2 events both the weeks of the 10th and 17th of April. She withdrew from the ITF event in Jackson, MS in the USA on the 27th March. So before she was sched to both Biarritz and Jackson on the 10th, but now only Biarritz.

Similarily she was schedualed to play both Bari & Dotham (a 75K in USA) on the 17th. Dotham was listed as her top priority event. She withdrew from that leaving Bari as her sole event for that week.

It seems like she first wanted to take the trip to the US, but now has changed her mind and want to practice on the european clay courts instead...courts who are very similar to the ones being used at Roland Garros... :D :cool: Dont knock me, im just hoping ;)

That is what it seems like to me too ;)

It is either that or she didn't realise she was also schedualed in events in europe and only withdrew from the US ones :lol: .... :scared:

Jelena need a wildcard if she wants to compete in Cagnes-Sur-Mer. I dont see 140 players withdrawing in 3 weeks.The same goes for Bari. 26 players has to withdraw in 2 weeks, if Jelena is to enter the qualifying draw...But right now, we shouldn't worry, Jelena is in the quali draw of Biarritz, which starts in under a week :eek: Please Jelena play, play, play!! :p

Yeh obviously with her ranking I can see that ;)

I think though if that Jelena wants a WC and asks for it, she would get one, especially in Bari.

I suspect those no-shows were as a result of Jelena not knowing she had been entered into those events and in those draws. Jelena should be fully aware now as she withdrew from events but left these ones on her commitments.
