Erm, well i have to pick Nadia to have the better career over Jelena for sure.

I mean Nadia has won all her 6 career titles at Tier II or above level while Jelena has only won 3 career titles at Tier II or above. Plus Nadia has the better career high ranking than Jelena (not that much of a difference, better career W/L record & has done overall better at the slams than Jelena has (2 RG SF's, 2 USO QF's, 1 AO QF & 1 Wimby QF for Nadia, 1 Wimby SF & QF & 1 RG QF for Jelena).

So that's my clear decision & it's obvious.

I am sure that Nadia has a better career than Jelena, but here is my real question... why is Jelena more famous that Nadia???:confused:

What a stupid question :haha:

Well, take this as an answer -

They are about same age, Nadia is 3. in the world, Jelena is 583.

I really wonder who is better :rolleyes: :ras:

Because she has big jugs...:p

Because her rise and subsequent fall from the game makes an interesting story.

Well that is completly different question. But stupid again :D
JD is attractive persone. She is hot! She is a dream of majority of people...while Nadia on the other hand is everything but hot, or cute, or prettie... Understand now why is JD more famous?
And by the way, Nadia didn't sink to 583., didn't left her's family, she appears on tournaments, so she isn't a mystery, while JD is...

Jelena is now more famous for her fall in the rankings. And she had the looks so obviously she was more famous :p ;)

Petrova, just slightly. Dokic was the far more talented and better player of the two, though, but with such a fucked up life her tennis career was over far too quickly.

Nadia has plenty of talent.

Well I think Capriati and the Williams sisters feared playing Jelena more than the current top players do Petrova.

Nadia beat Jennifer a long time ago at RG, in 2003. Beat Seles that same tournament.

Look at the H2H between Nadia and Capriati + Williams, and to the same with Dokić...

You have another thing comming :p :wavey:

Too bad Petrova didn't really exist when the WS and Capriati were playing good tennis.

If you can't see my point then that's your problem.

Dokic in 2001/2002= more feared by Capriati/WS than Petrova is feared by Mauresmo and JHH now.

What a hell???

You have said now that Dokić feard more of Capriati and W, then Petrova is of JHH and MoMo???

Well if that is what are you saying, than sorry... That's right :hug:

But you said this first time
"Well I think Capriati and the Williams sisters feared playing Jelena more than the current top players do Petrova." - and that means that C and W were more affraid of JD, than MoMo and JuJu are of Petrova... and that's just rubish! :)

The only reality is that up to this point, Nadia has already achieved more than Dokic. Nadia is ranked in the top ten, and she will more than likely continue to do so. Meanwhile, Jelena is being racially harassed or whatever the story is this week.

:lol: precisely ;)

Nadia still has much more potential, she should continue to achieve a lot more in the remainder of her career. To me it looks like Dokic is done. I'll be shocked if she gets back into the top 100, let alone the top 10.

jelena is my favourite player ever then it is nadia and to be fair you would have to choose nadias career over jelenas. but jelena is for sure as talented as nadia and if things hadnt fallen apart would be where nadia is today

Well for me it's clear: Nadia has the best career, not only because she already accomplished so much but she's still in the game.

Petrova of course.

If you ask who has the better career at the moment i say Petrova, but you can do other questions about their careers ,where Jelena will have my vote...

Dec 30th, 2006, 07:51 PM
I must say Dokic just because I'm the biggest Dokic fan here ;)

By the way Jelena is more famous and popular than Nadia...i guess its because of her miserable career (life) in the past 3 years !!! And of course JD is hot awwww :inlove:

Did Dokic really scare the Williams sisters?
That's hard to believe. Anyway, I hope she makes it back, but right now, she's far away.
