Jelena Withdrew today (09/01/07). :sad:

I guess the only hope now is that maybe she went to Australia...?
I only hope she starts to play again soon.... :sad:

Okay! This is it! The start of the magnificant return to the top for Jelena! :D

She is currently 2nd on the Alternates list... but surely to move up to the top of the Qualifying list I think.. maybe main draw?

But anyway, lets give lots of positivism and support to Jelena!

Vamos! :D

Good luck Jelena !!!!!!!

Good that she is going to play in Germany.

In the new German-Tennisjournal was a article about Dokic (Dont know when this article was made):


Die Ex-Top Ten-Spielerin Jelena Dokic macht sich bei Niki Pilic in Oberschleißheim fit für die Rückkehr - bisher mit wenig Erfolg.

Ihr Name zieht noch immer:Jelena Dokic, im August 2002 die Nummer vier der Welt, brachte dem Future-Turnier in Ismaning viel Aufmerksamkeit. Mit einer Wildcard für die Qualifikation vom Veranstalter beschenkt, konnte Dokic als Nummer 615 der Welt einige Siege sammeln. Allerdings scheiterte sie im Halbfinale des Hauptfeldes n der späteren Siegerin Astrid Bester aus Italien."Jelena will wieder nach oben", versichert Martin Rutner, der an der Niki Pilic Academy in Oberschleißheim fünf Wochen mit Dokic trainiert hat. "Sie kam im Oktober zu uns, wohnte hier wie jeder andere Spieler und trainierte einige Stunden täglich", beschreibt Rutner den Alltag von Dokic in Deutschland. Nach vielen Verletzungen, Motivationsproblemen und weiteren Eskapaden ihres exzentrischen Vaters Damir, mit dem Jelena nichts mehr zu tun haben will, versucht sie in der Pilic-Academy, sich in Ruhe für ihr Comeback vorzubereiten."Wir mussten fast bei null anfangen. Es wird ein harter Weg für sie", vermutet Rutner, der früher mit Stefan Koubek arbeitete. Tennistechnisch sei sie im "Top 100-Bereich". Aber körperlich ist sie weit von ihrer Bestform entfernt. Dokic will auch im nächsten Jahr regelmäßig in Oberschleißheim trainieren- falls sie wieder auftauchen sollte. Kroatische Zeitungen hatten kurz nach dem Turnier in Ismaning gemeldet, dass Dokic entführt worden sei. Vater Damir setzte dieses Gerücht in die Wlet und vermutete, dass Tino Bikic, Jelenas Ex-Coach, hinter der Aktion stecken würde."Stimmt alles nicht", beteuerte Coach Rutner." Sie wird nächstes Jahr wieder bei uns sein."

--> She will be there again in 2007!:eek: Tomorrow I can translate the rest....

Here is a brief translation of the article (from German to English) It's a bit jumbled up and some words didn't translate ...

The ex-Top Ten Spielerin Jelena Dokic makes itself with Niki Pilic in Oberschleissheim fit for the return - so far with little success. Their name pulls still: Jelena Dokic, in August 2002 the number four of the world, brought in Ismaning much attention to the Future tournament. Presented with a Wildcard for the qualification by the organizer, Dokic could collect some victories as number 615 of the world. However it failed in the semi-final of the main field n of the later Siegerin Astrid of best ones from Italy. “Jelena wants again upward”, insures Martin Rutner, which trained five weeks with Dokic to the Niki Pilic Academy in Oberschleissheim. “You Rutner the everyday life of Dokic came in Germany in October to us, lived here like every other player and trained some hours daily”, describes. After many injuries, motivation problems and further Eskapaden of its eccentric father Damir, with which Jelena wants to have to do nothing more, she tries in the Pilic Academy to prepare in peace for her comeback. “We had to begin nearly with zero. It a hard way for it”, assumes Rutner, which worked in former times with Stefan Koubek. It is tennis technical in the “Top 100-Bereich”. But physically it is far from their Bestform. Dokic wants also in the next year regularly in Oberschleissheim training if it to again emerge should. Croatian newspapers had announced briefly after the tournament in Ismaning that Dokic had been kidnapped. Father Damir set this rumor into the Wlet and assumed that Tino Bikic, would put Jelenas ex-Coach, behind the action. “Everything is correct not”, protested Coach Rutner.” It will be next year again with us."

Well I agree completely with Philip, a positive attitude is what Jelena fans need to have. This is encouraging to see that Jelena has entered this tournament, and also that she might be back at the academy ?? I'm never 100% sure what is going on with Jelena. But hopefully she can just work things out before the new year, and this would be a good step for her. Starting right at the bottom is risky, she can either win the tournament and then start taking bigger steps entering higher tournaments, or she could lose early and suffer a massive confidence blow and experience alot of self doubt.

Dementieva Serve
Dec 20th, 2006, 11:12 AM
I agree. She lost so much confidence after the AO 2006 loss - can you imagine what it would be like if she lost in the first round of a $10K ITF tournament :o

She was lucky to survive her first round qualifying match at $10K ITF Ismaning in October because her opponent retired early in the third set :o

With the new ranking system, Jelena will have to reach the 2nd round of the main draw to earn any points at all. Let's hope she can do that easily ...

The article seems to be saying that Jelena will return to Pilic's academy next year. Maybe they have reached some kind of agreement that they can both live with, after all. I really hope that turns out to be the case, because training with Borna Bikic is going to get Jelena nowhere. Especially if she has to worry about being attacked by ignorant punks every time she tries to practice. :(

I have barely been following Jelena during the offseason, because I can't stand all the BS threads being posted in GM.

She probably entered Stuttgart while she was still at Pilic's, so there's no guarantee she'll actually turn up.

That's just my pessimistic opinion.

if she's happy then she will enjoy playing tennis a lot more than she has in ages & put in solid results. go jelena :yeah:

ITF do have limits but it counts seperate to the WTA WCs she can get. SHe can have 6 ITF WCs, and 3 of them can be Main Draw.

Probably that "Borna going to jail for 10 months" stuff.
However if that's true then I'm surprised that Aussie tabloids have not picked up that story. I mean they love drama and they should have tennis related news high season right now. Hm..

I guess Jelena's surprise could be she is getting an AO QWC but that is very unlikely seeing as she already said she won't be playing in AO qualies and she is entered in Stuttgart anyway ...

She has been known for changing her mind :tape:

Like how she went from wanting to get back to top 30 to wanting to get back to top 100 :tape:

There are still 6 QWCs left I think, and I think there might be 1 more MDWC left :eek:

There's no way she's in Australia. She couldn't afford to make such a trip, and I never thought she would play this event anyways. Just keep telling us about how much you want to be back at the top again Jelena, we take it to heart. :hearts: :rolleyes:

That's my biggest issue. She encourages her fans by saying how badly she wants to get back to the top and how much she believes she can... and then when it comes to actually committing to playing a schedule and working for it... NEVER.

What I don't understand is how someone like Jelena, who appears to be intelligent, simply doesn't enlist the help of someone, especially from Australia to get her back to the top.

I doubt she is on the povertly line, she is probably asset rich but cash poor. Sell the house and take a gamble, if you believe in yourself then you have to do it otherwise she will die wondering...

Surely she can see that she needs a coach, and she needs to play, no matter how far, how much money, how fat she might be, blah blah blah.

I don't understand why she can't see this? She has quoted Mary Pierce as an inspiration for her at times but she isn't acting like a Mary Pierce. When Mary came back after her lay off in 2001/2 she was mega fat, at the AO she was huge, but she still played, still battled away and then look what happened in 2005, two grand slam finals.

I just don't get it from Jelena. When she speaks, she seems so intelligent and on top of things, but it must be a front or she mustn't really want to come back?

Why all these withdrawals?

She needs:

1. A coach (NOT someone in her comfort zone like the Bikic brothers)
2. To commit and play!

It's as simple as that. Using the brain with the coach then testing the fitness with match play. Keep slogging away at 10K, then 15K then 25K, 50K and before you know it, summer 07 will come on and she can get wild cards into all aussie tourney's to set her up for AO 2008.

It seems a perect plan to me no? :sad:

I'm afraid that's true. She said recently in one of her interviews that during Damir time she did not go even to movies to often. That made me think that with her kind of personality this is the only way. If she is not ready to give up most of her outside tennis life then she will not return into top 100 tennis.
