Quote from a recent article by Jelena:

Dokic safe and hopeful of playing top tennis again

Fri Nov 24, 2006 2:44 PM GMT

"My only option is to stay with his academy. I am now in Zagreb looking for sponsors to finance my comeback attempt," Dokic said, dispelling reports she had decided to quit.

"I will do everything in my power to go back to the top and I think there is a chance. I don't know if I can be the world number four again but I am still young and this is the best time to go for a comeback.

"I feel I can still play top-level tennis and getting back into the top 30 would satisfy my ambitions. If (France's) Mary Pierce was able to come back at the age of 30, there is no reason for me not to try at 23."

:worship: :worship: :worship: :worship:

Dokic said the same thing at the end of last year. Monica also said she was inspired by Mary. :bounce:

maybe its just me but I dont like the way Jelena said it. "If Mary Pierce was able to comeback at the age of 30" almost implies that she is better than Mary, like if a lesser player like her cud do it at 30 so cud I.

The quote of Dokic is not very nice !

I just wanna say to jelena that everyone is not Mary, and Jelena, it will be much harder for u to be back cause you have never been as talented as Mary was and is.

So be conscious it wont be easy, even if Mary made it !

Although I always wished she could have a chance.

Not that I'm being biased because I'm a Dokic fan (but I'm also a Mary fan as you can see in my signature and avatar), but the way I interpreted it was that Jelena was saying that she is still young at 23 years of age and is capable of making a comeback.

maybe its just me but I dont like the way Jelena said it. "If Mary Pierce was able to comeback at the age of 30" almost implies that she is better than Mary, like if a lesser player like her cud do it at 30 so cud I.
