Does anyone know why she hasn't played since April last year?

Jan 3rd, 2008, 11:01 AM
Hmm. That is very tough for Jelena. Linetskaya has been out for a while with a difficult father too so it is possible that Jelena could get through that one but Yvonne Meusberger will be extremely difficult.

News on Linetskaya from her forum:

http://www.ynet.co.il/PicServer2/20122005/986428/IMG_0787_wa.jpg

She celebrated 21st birthday 2 weeks ago and has no plans to retire from tennis. Her coach now is Oded Jacob who is also coaching Tzipi Obziler and was Shahar Peer's coach as well.

Linetskaya received her Israeli citizenship and passport recently and will appear next year under the Israeli flag.

winnable match:)

Ben.
Jan 3rd, 2008, 11:19 AM
yeah it should be a winnable match for jelena, but it wll be tough & i reckon she could even beat meusburger. shvedova or rodina (who pushed molik to three sets in moscow) will be even more tougher for jelena if she has to face them in final round of qualifying.

so all the best jelena:)

IceHock
Jan 3rd, 2008, 02:36 PM
If she gets past Linetskaya, Meusburger shouldn't be too much of trouble, her first serves are 70 mph and she doesn't hit hard, Jelena should be pounding shots.

I actually think Meusburger would be tough for Jelena given the way Meusburger plays. Jelena's never been a huge fan of pushers.

I think Linetskaya is injured because there was a long gap before the last game which she hit 4 doubles in. And we all know shes had many injuries the poor girl. Hope shes ok but more importantly i hope Jelena gets a win and a crack at top 100 Meusburger.

Dokic through early qualifying


January 04, 2008

FORMER world No.4 Jelena Dokic claimed a hard-fought victory in her opening qualifying match at the WTA Tour Moorilla Hobart International.

Dokic, aiming to win a wildcard into the Australian Open, fought back after dropping the first set to defeat Evgenia Linetskaya, from Russia, 3-6 6-4 6-1.

The 24-year-old Australian, who must win two more qualifying matches to gain a berth in the main draw in Hobart, appeared untroubled by the thigh soreness that troubled her recently.

The problem forced her to retire from the Australian Open wildcard play-off semi-finals last month.

AAP

Happy for Jelena but sad for Zhenya. But great that both girls are still trying after all they have suffered.

What time did Jelena's match start yesterday ( I have to know when to get up ) and what about live score ?
Jelena's match should start around 10PM New York time (2PM Hobart time). The live scores for her Q1 only started working after the first set, but they should be working perfectly from this point on, so I think we'll be able to follow the match. :hearts:

It's been a whiiiiile since Jelena's played someone who's been ranked as high as Meusburger, this is gonna be really interesting.

Jelena Dokic has one more round to go before entering the main draw of the Moorilla Hobart International.

Jelena Dokic is one win away from qualifying for the main draw of the Moorilla Hobart International.

Dokic continued her comeback to elite tennis today with a 6-3 6-2 victory over top seed Yvonne Meusburger of Austria in the qualifying event at the Domain Tennis Centre.

She plays Yaroslava Shvedova of Russia, who defeated Australian Karolina Wlodarczak 6-7 6-1 3-0 ret.

"I'm getting more confidence in myself and my ability to play against top players," Dokic, 24, said.

Australian wildcard Jessica Moore faces a tough first round battle in the main draw, after being drawn against top seed Alona Bondarenko.

The Ukraine world No.21 heads a field including Indian Hopman Cup star Sania Mirza, who is ranked sixth.

Russian Vera Zvonereva is the second seed.

Of the other Australian entries in the tournament starting tomorrow, fellow wildcards Casey Dellaqua takes on eighth-seeded Spaniard Anabel Media Garrigues while Monique Adamczak is up against a yet-to-be-decided qualifier.

I watched Shvedova play against Zheng in the qualies on the GC & she hits the ball hard with some consistency & she completely outplayed zheng in the first set & her serve is a bit weird (the action of it).

but jelena hits a much heavier ball than her & if jelena is on her game & stays consistent she will win. but its not gonna be easy.

Just not Kirilenko ( and Mirza ) :scared:

well if she does play kirilenko or mirza it will be good to see where game stands against top 50 players as she has yet to play one. so even if she does loses she can take some positives out of it :)

i want Adamczak, repeat of 2006 AO WCplayoff final, with Dokic winning again.

I dunno, Adamczak is playing kind of well (beating Vesnina (I think?) last week and everything) meanwhile, Muller lost to Pin. Although, I don't think it's totally unreasonable to think that Jelena could beat Muller or Adamczak, so maybe Adamczak as I'd rather Jelena play Mirza in the second round than Radwanska.

After all that, she'll probably get Kirilenko :o (And my predictions lately have come true :lol: )

GeeTee
Jan 5th, 2008, 10:59 PM
I'd still rather see her get huge points for playing AO qualifying, but she is giving the selectors something to chew over in Hobart..

good on her!

Goodjob breaking Jelena, now hold serve...wow, I can honestly say I didn't expect her to get past the first round, especially while watching the scoreboard for that match. But wow, its great that she has proven me wrong, let me take a moment to dream here

Australians in the top 100:
Sam Stosur, Alicia Molik, Nicole Pratt, Casey Dellecqua, Jelena Dokic, Gadjasova and possibly Monique and Sophie if they staty healthy and do weell all year!....Christina Wheeler into the top 200, great year for 2008.

but that was a dream and most of it wont happen :p
