Good news everyone, Jelena is in the qualy draw for the 25K event in Florence next week.

She will play Camila Giorgi (ranked #576) in the first round:bounce::bounce:. Good Luck Jelena, I know you can do well here.

One puzzling thing though, Jelena has a WC beside her name but I thought she got in without needing a WC, anyway i'm just glad she's turned up here.

She's playing in a qualies of a 25K :D Not getting my hopes up too quickly, but I think this comeback may be the real one...

Philip
May 2nd, 2008, 09:01 PM
Maybe she didnt sign in on time for the qualie draw and so had to take a wc to get in? :shrug: :)

happy she is there though!! :)

Giorgi is only 16 years old and her record this year is 1-5, with her only win over an unranked Belgian girl. Jelena should definitely win this match.

May 3rd, 2008, 07:45 PM
I think it's pretty obvious she was really nervous with Damir there, and she obviosuly played evry shitty in the first set to get bagelled by a no-namer, so I think she will be settled down now after this match is out of the way and she will make the main draw, i'm not nervous about that at all.

Gabba's ranking has dropped about 55 spots since the beginning of the year, and she's had results from beating Castano on clay to losing to Balsamo (ranked 459 at the time).

Keep it going Jelena, and string together some MD wins to get ready for Rome!

Just before everyone goes completely apeshit when Jelena's ranking points don't change after this week: 25Ks get added the week after they are played. The 1 point (and anymore she may get) will be added on the rankings at the end of next week, not this week.

Very true. So IF she plays Rome next week, the points she earns in Florence (this week) and the points she earns in Rome (next week) will both be added to her ranking at the same time?

Great! So she'll get at least 5 matches this week. Smart choice to play here. :hatoff:

I'm just sorry to learn that Tin's there with her; I was hoping they broke up. That relationship has not exactly been helpful to Jelena's career in the past. :p But maybe even that has changed now; as always with Jelena, we'll just have to wait and see.

Great win from Jelena! I was shocked when I learned Gabba had beaten the likes of Cornet and Domachowska last year, and a little frightened but she pulled through. It was great to see her fight back from a double break, and 0-3 in the first set to end up taking the set 7-5. In all honesty I expected her to tank the set, because that's been they way she appears to have been playing lately, like if she gets off to a bad start there's not much hope for te rest of that set, but this time she fought and won :)

Her R2 opponent is Elisa Balsamo of Italy, ranked 442, and with a career high ranking of 339 - reached in 2006. She has a 14-6 win-loss record so far this year, and also won the $10K Sabadell title in March this year. She hasn't really beaten any players of note this year, the only names I recognize are Shona Lee (0&1), Giulia Gatto-Monticone and Giulia Gabba :lol: But I see she has beaten Olga Govortsova before, in 2005, granted Olga was then ranked 977 :)

I don't think this match should worry Jelena too much, she just needs a good start :yeah:

I am absolutely dumbfounded that Jelena didn't get a WC into Rome next week, not even a QWC? What the hell is wrong with the tournament organisers, she's won the tournament before, and is obviously playing well enough to be competitive - so why not give her a go? :(

Another brick wall put up for Jelena :sad: And one she'll bulldoze over.. hopefully :D

Jelena should beat Mirjana and a SF would be GREAT. I'm not THAT disappointed that Jelena didn't get a Rome WC, she's playing well and improving her ranking very quickly now. Plus, she's gonna stay in Italy anyway presumably and play Caserta next week as well. Beating Mirjana might get Jelena a special exempt into next week's main draw, although it might take getting to the final. I just hope she keeps on the road she's on, and I'd love to see her on the summer hardcourt circuit in the US :hearts:

Have we though about getting an olympic big nod? I mean outside of Dellaqua, there ahsn't been someone doing good for Australia, Stosur is just coming back, and Molik hasn't had good results, who knows, if Jelena keeps its up, I know it's a long shot but if she picks up her game, there's a chance.

I think we're only worried a bit about Lucic purely based on a name basis. Look at the results this year -

+ 6-8 Win Loss Record
+ Hasn't beaten a Top 200 player, best win in '08 was over Schultz-McCarthy (211) 6-1 6-4
+ Has lost to 8 players - once to a player outside the Top 300, twice to an outside Top 400 player, and once to a Top 500 player
+ In 7 tournaments this year, all of which she was in Qualifying, she has only qualified once, and got through once as a Lucky Loser.

Not too impressive if you ask me..

WhatTheDeuce
May 8th, 2008, 04:52 AM
Lucic is one of those players that can hit big and play some great tennis though. She's better than a lot of the players she loses to, just like you can say the same about Dokic.

If Jelena is sloppy, it can be interesting. I think she'll win, but I'm very nervous.
