Is she definitely playing Caserta then? I guess we'll need to wait until the draw comes out to be sure which I'm guessing won't be available until Monday....

Tough first round match for Jelena but i'm sure she can win if she plays to her capabilities. As for which country she's represents, surely her fans support for her ability rather than the country she plays for??? Come on Jelena!!!

Is it new, like after she won Florence? What did she say?

Just Do It
May 11th, 2008, 05:44 PM
That is a nice interview, too bad they translated her responses in Croatian.

Jelena said she will give everything she has to reach top100 this year. She was in Florence ONLY with Borna Bikic. She works with him at the moment, they have been practising together for 8 weeks now, and the results have come. She said her goal is to play Wimbledon ( to get WC ) and play US OPEN without any wild card. She also added that she does not like too many people around her ( wtf :confused: ) Also talked about Mirjana. Said she played amazing, and that Mirjana will soon score some nice results/wins because she is playing extremelly well, Jelena said she almost lost but showed how she is coping well with tough situations. Talked how she is playing her first match on Tuesday this week, and that she did not play 7 matches in one week in ages. She came from Morocco on friday, and played first match on Saturday, she was tired but managed to win the whole thing.

Ajde :yeah:

ajmo!
May 11th, 2008, 05:45 PM
Is it new, like after she won Florence? What did she say?

She is very happy. She sad that she is planing to be top 100 until the end of year. She sad that she lost 1st set 6:0 cause she got from Maroco to Italy in friday. She is happy cause she won 7 matches in a roll. Then that the hardest job she had against Lucic and she expect Mirjana to join her on winnig track. In Tuesday she will play 1st round in Caserta. She plans to play Wimbledon cause they have offered her a WC last 2 years, but she didn't recived because she was not in a rytham of playing. She said that she is working only with Borna Bikic and that she doesn't want to have to many people around her.
P.S. She plays for Australia, check out draw on ITF website..;)

Great. :D Thanks Danilo.

I don't even care if she's with Borna Bikic, as long as she's motivated and playing good tennis, that's all that matters. So I guess Savo was never with her then? And what about her relationship with Damir now? Still some things I'm curious about...

Yeah, me too, but I believe Savo was with her in Morocco and then went back to Serbia.

Also, there was a huge article in Serbian sport magazine " Sportski Zurnal " about Jelena. She gave a small interview where story is pretty much the same, just she is wasnt talking about Borna. She is in contact with Damir.

Will try to find some articles online now.

I saw Cravero's game at the Wimbledon against Justine Henin. She plays hard, she has a strong forehand. Also she like to make the drop shots. Her groundstrokes on the line are powerful, but she does many errors in her game. I think it's winable match for Dokic!:):worship:

I'm a fan of Jorgi Cravero and I can tell you that, unfortunately, she's been playing very badly lately. I think Jelena will beat her easily. So, not a bad draw at all for JD -- but a very bad one for poor Jorgi, who could use some better luck right now.

I think it is great that Jelena will be on court at night because it gives her as much recovery time from last week as possible. She is playing the number 1 seed so she needs to be on her game. Honestly, I have no idea who this Cravero chick is and i honestly dont care, lol I just want Jelena to steam roll her and the rest of the draw this week!

I'm so happy about this win because she fought through her problems to win. This is the quality which I believe got her to #4 in the world and in the same situation a few yrs ago I think Jelena would've lost easily. Long may her fighting spirit continue :banana:.

Her next opponent will be Alexia Virgili a qualifier from Italy ranked #455. Good luck JD!

against who ??

Alexia Virgili who came from Qualies. Not really a tough opponent, she is currently ranked around 450 and does sometimes pretty well on 10k's , otherwise she doesn't have any "greater" result , except one SF 25k in 2007. Made 6 games against Karatantcheva this year. Best win for her 2008 was against Ksenia Milevskaya.

If all goes right, Jelena will win pretty easy, everything else would be pretty disappointing.

Allez! :) Auf geht's.

I'm happy, but isn't anyone worried about how much tennis she's played? Ideally, this match should have been a blowout.

She's got to get back into match shape. Realistically, she is NOT gonna be playing Roland Garros as we all hope. These are good places for her to win points. She might be tired, but fatigue is something she'll deal with if she gets back to the top, so might as well deal with it now.

WhatTheDeuce
May 14th, 2008, 01:32 AM
^Agree. Jelena had like 3 days off between this event and Florence, surely that's enough to recover at least a good chunk of energy. This is a girl who used to be known for playing week in and week out anyway. I realize she hasn't done that in a while, but I still don't believe fatigue will be a huge issue as she works her way into the event.

Uranium
May 14th, 2008, 01:36 AM
well Dokic was a lot fitter back then, and even then when she player basically every week she retired a lot. Dokic isn't that fit right now and it will be harder for her to play this much tennis in little time.

Even so, the few days off should be enough is the point I'm making. If it's not, I'd be worried about her fitness level.

Best of luck in Round 2 :bounce:

well Dokic was a lot fitter back then, and even then when she player basically every week she retired a lot. Dokic isn't that fit right now and it will be harder for her to play this much tennis in little time.

That is incorrect. When did she retire a lot? She had a few periods where she was slightly injured (early 2002) but apart from that, she rarely withdrew or retired in matches.

She needs match fitness. You can only improve your fitness to a certain extent by running and training. Match fitness is where players really separate themselves. I don't think this had much to do with her lack of fitness. The fact is that those games were LONG and if it were to be thought that she is tired or unfit, she should have imploded somewhere around the first set and a half. Instead, she finished the stronger of the two players - that is the real indicator of where her fitness is.

It seems somewhat illogical to say that a player should rest to improve their fitness. The fact is, and Jelena's results have always shown this, she thrives of continuous play and that is how she develops her match fitness and physical toughness. Her fitness isn't going to improve in any meaningful way if she takes rests every single time she has a good performance.

Performing at a high level consistently should be her ultimate aim and, unfortunately, that requires her to play as a much as possible at this stage.

jd4eva
May 14th, 2008, 07:27 AM
I should clarify what I meant. I do not mean that Jelena should keep playing week in, week out and ignore fatigue and the demands of her body. On the contrary, I think it is extremely important that she is cautious, and exercises good judgment, in looking after her physical fitness.

However, I feel that insofar as it is possible, she should try to get as many matches as she can right now in order to improve her match fitness and physical strength. I do not feel it would helpful for Jelena to adopt the approach of 'well maybe I might get tired so I won't play'. This is perhaps too cautious of an approach. If she loses matches because she is tired then so be it; I am certain that even the losses will bring with them benefits.

In any case, she has played 12 matches in the past 2 weeks. That is quite an amount by any standard. Hopefully she can keep grinding matches out and continue to build confidence and fitness.
