Sep 30th, 2006, 11:55 AM
Playing every week isn't doing her good. I don't think it is too serious.

Sep 30th, 2006, 11:55 AM
Jelena :sad:

Just Do It
Sep 30th, 2006, 11:56 AM

Sep 30th, 2006, 11:56 AM

Sep 30th, 2006, 11:57 AM

Sep 30th, 2006, 12:17 PM
Did Jelena injure herself or was she just plain tired?

Nice gift for Anna.

Just Do It
Sep 30th, 2006, 12:21 PM
Back pain !

Sep 30th, 2006, 12:21 PM
Jelena. :hug: What happened?

She had back problems from around 5-4 in the first set. The trainer came on about 3 times after that but I think it was a bit too much for her to carry on in the end.

She certainly looked in pain when the trainer was working on her back as she laid on the floor.

Sep 30th, 2006, 12:24 PM
Jelena :sad: Please rest and skip Stuttgart next week and rest up! :) Well done, Anna. Win the title! :worship:

Sep 30th, 2006, 12:25 PM
:sad: Get some rest Jelena. I wanted a Li-Jankovic final! :sobbing:

Sep 30th, 2006, 12:30 PM
Back pain !

Thanks for the info!

I remember that she hurt her back while training at the USOpen, the day before her match against Justine. The gruesome schedule she's been following the last weeks might have brought it back. I don't particularly like the girl but injuries are always bad news. I hope she'll get better soon. She's on a roll and it would be terrible that what happened to Nadia this year would happen to her too.

Get well soon, Jelena!

Sep 30th, 2006, 12:59 PM
:sad: Get some rest Jelena.

Sep 30th, 2006, 01:01 PM

Way to go anna:)

Sep 30th, 2006, 01:08 PM
Iron girl got broken?

Get a rest, please! And prepare yourself to the new season.
You have a great chance to break into Top 10 next spring. I hope you'll be OK.

Just Do It

i like them both equally, so it's sad to see jelena STILL retiring from matches pretty frequently.

Sep 30th, 2006, 02:01 PM
Anna :woohoo:

Sep 30th, 2006, 02:02 PM
Jelena :sad: she was paying a lot of tennis this past month so take some few days off before Stuggart :eek:

Since Jelena lost, Anna is my fave to win her first title!!!!! Cmon Anna :D

Sep 30th, 2006, 02:05 PM
It says she retired from HEAL ILLNESS. :sad:

Sep 30th, 2006, 02:13 PM
Jelena:( I think that you should skip a week or two.

Sep 30th, 2006, 02:23 PM
Well done Anna! :D

Shame for Jelena though, I hope she gets back to full healthy soon :yeah:

Sep 30th, 2006, 02:35 PM

Jelena :sad: :hug:

Anna, go on to win the title :hearts:

Sep 30th, 2006, 04:23 PM
If Anna beats AMG, she will be in the top 20 in 2006 points

Sep 30th, 2006, 04:24 PM
Jelena is one of my favorites - but she plays way too much and retires way too much - glnt Jelena - and take a few weeks off damn it!

Sep 30th, 2006, 04:30 PM
Yay for Anna! I hope she can win her first title.

I wish Jelena didn't have to retire. I hope a little rest will do her well.

Sep 30th, 2006, 04:37 PM
Anna has almost nothing to defend until IW next March, way less than 100 points total.
She could easily be top 15 by then.
She drew poorly in Beijing, and got lucky here

Sep 30th, 2006, 05:33 PM
Poor Jeca, she deserved to win this tournament, she had such an amazing summer :(

Sep 30th, 2006, 06:29 PM
Get well soon Jeca. I hope she choose her tournaments better next year.
Good luck for the final, Chucky.

Sep 30th, 2006, 06:32 PM
Go Anna ..!!!!!! 1 title...

Sep 30th, 2006, 07:04 PM
:woohoo: anna!! :D

this title is yours to take!!

Sep 30th, 2006, 10:57 PM
From what I can gather from one of the Chinese articles I've read, Jelena retired due to heat illness. She lost too much water and then began to cramp, firstly in her back (it says something about her old back injury too but I can't quite decipher it - perhaps it flared up because of it?) and then all over her body.

After the match, Jelena had treatment for half an hour and understandably feels disappointed that she had to retire as she enjoys putting up a fight.
