You'd have to question for committment to coming back if she didn't come down to Australia for the 25K's in Nov, if she's fit enough.

Cheap points, weaker draws and she'd have it mentally over most of the Aussie gals (like she did at the w/c playoff)

God I really hope that she plays. Where did you hear that she is injured anyway?

Here is a small article about Jelena from DokicLIVE


Where's Jelena?
06.09.2006. (The Courier-Mail)

FOUR years ago, Jelena Dokic was the US Open's fourth seed.

Today, she is ranked No.625 in the world and has just made her latest mystifying withdrawal, from a $10,000 Challenger event in Austria.

But the 23-year-old is set for an invitation to the Australian Open wildcard playoffs, provided she can improve her standing as Australia's 17th-ranked player on the WTA tour.

Dokic, understood to be based in Zagreb, Croatia, has played just seven WTA and International Tennis Federation events this year, winning nine matches.

Australian veteran Nicole Pratt says the former Wimbledon semi-finalist is like a ghost: "She appears in entry lists and then disappears."

But TA could make her welcome at its December wildcard series, an Australian Open playoff event she won last year at the expense of Australian players.

"The last month or so, we've been expecting her to come play," TA director of player development Craig Tiley said.

"Our assumption from the last communcation through her agent a month ago is that she is injured, as she was when she missed quite a few weeks after the Australian Open . . . (But)

she is a better player than her ranking shows and we'll assess where she is in November."

The Serbian-born baseliner's last event was in mid-July, when she made the quarters of an ITF tournament in Germany and lost to Czech Andrea Hlackova, ranked No.219.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It's so sad the way she has fallen apart these last few years.

How can she be injured so much? During her peak she was hardly injured.

Pat Cunningham isn't Jelena's agent anymore :eek:

I'm not 100% sure that is true. It is a possibility that Pat just said that to plasticomo (on the www.jelena-dokic.com messageboard) that he wasn't Jelena's agent anymore so that plasticomo would stop sending him e-mails. But it is a possibility that it is true, that Pat Cunningham isn't Jelena's agent anymore.

It doesn't really bother me if Pat isn't Jelena's agent any more. After all, an agent doesn't help somebody play better tennis.

Pat Cunningham isn't Jelena's agent anymore :eek:

Sa Pilićem u reinkarnaciju!
25.10.2006. (Jelena Dokić LiVE)

Svetski priznata Teniska Akademija Nikija Pilića u Minhenu pobila je sve tvrdnje i pisanja dotičnog srpskog dnev
nog lista, u čijem je prošlonedeljanom izdanju osvanula priča o tome kako je naša najbolja teniserka svih vremena pustila reket da rđa i posvetila se zanimanju domaćice, koja je u potpunosti zapostavila svoj profesionalni pravac i fizički izgled.

Početkom oktobra, Jelena Dokić se obrela u Teniskoj Akademiji čoveka koji je od mnogih mladih nada načinio vrhunske igrače, među kojima je i naš Novak Đoković. Cilj koji je naveo Jelenu na ovaj radikalan korak je samo jedan - povratak u vrh svetskog ženskog tenisa.

"Istina je da je Jelena u Pilićevom kampu. Ovde je skoro tri nedelje, vredno trenira i što je najbitnije trudi se. Vidi se da ima jaku želju da se vrati na staru poziciju," tvrde u Akademiji.

Da je Jelena postala ozbiljan "student" Pilićeve Akademije svedoči i stranica zvaničnog sajta na kojoj je spisak igrača koji se trenutno nalaze tamo. Klikni ovde.

Pozitivno su iznenađeni kontaktom sa Dokićevom.

"Ona je sjajna osoba i veoma komunikativna. U potpunosti je opuštena, prija nam razgovor sa njom."

Meseci neaktivnog teniskog života ostavili su posledice po fizički izgled Dokićeve.

"Jelena se veoma ugojila, a napredak od kada je došla ovde je očigledan."

Pravila koja je Pilić uveo na Akademiju su jasna - nema kontakta sa spoljnim svetom sem sa članovima Akademije.

"Dokićeva je sama ovde, ali ne zato što je ona tako želela, već su pravila koja je Pilić uveo na Akademiju da osoba koja ovde dođe da trenira ne sme da ima pored sebe nikog od bližnjih. Kada neko odluči da dođe ovde, znači da je rešio da se posveti treningu, treningu i samo treningu i tako će biti do isteka roka na koji je ugovor zakljčen."

Koliko dugo iznosi vremenski period na koji je Jelena odlučila da boravi u Minhenu nismo uspeli da saznamo, ali pretpostavlja se da će na "čeličnom" režimu biti sve do kraja tekuće godine, kada će se konačno vratiti takmičarskim vodama i pokazati rezultate minulog rada i želju za povratkom u svetsku tenisku elitu, gde joj je i mesto.

Great to hear she's in full training. One thought is that she should be down in Oz, but its probably better financially for her to train in Europe where her base is. Wonder if she'll sign up for any tournies. :confused: A couple before the end of the year may give her ranking a bit of a pulse maybe :confused:
