Looks like I'm the only 'yes' so far. :lol:

She better so I can see her.

Jul 17th, 2008, 04:26 AM
She should, but I highly doubt she'll make the trek.:(

Jul 17th, 2008, 04:51 AM
nup she won;t

Jul 17th, 2008, 06:28 AM
If she's going to win, I think she must make this her last ITF in Europe, and must head to North America, or atleast get off the clay.

Two things I don't see her doing in the near future. :o

So Disrespectful

What is the cut off for qualification anyway?

Either way, she won't go to the US. :fiery:

Jul 17th, 2008, 06:44 AM
shes an idiot... so no:(


Jul 17th, 2008, 08:17 AM
Unfortunately, I don't think so.

Just Do It

Unfortunately I don't think she will :sad:.

I would be ecstatic if she proved me wrong though:)!

Jul 17th, 2008, 09:52 PM
No :(...she'll win it next year though so it's all good :banana::)

Jul 18th, 2008, 12:35 PM
I really hope so but I just can't see it happen when she keeps playing these 25K events on clay. But I'm sure she has goals and a plan to rise up the ranks. I better see her at Melbourne Park in January though!

TBE didnt list Jelena as an absentee from US Open list...
Just have to get it confirmed :)

Jul 18th, 2008, 01:56 PM
That would be so cool :D

Jul 18th, 2008, 03:31 PM
That would be great but on the other hand - she hasn't seen a hard court since January - can't expect good results from her without any preparation :(

Just Do It

CONFIRMED: Jelena is in qualies for USO :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

Jul 18th, 2008, 09:52 PM
:eek: :yeah: :woohoo: :bolt:
Now all she has to do is play :lol:

There is a 50k Challenger in the Bronx before US Open quallies, she should (and I think she will) play there

So exciting :)

Jul 18th, 2008, 11:40 PM
It depends whether there's a 25K in Italia during the qualies or not. :p Seriously I think she'll go, she will have to stop playing events on clay and practice on hard before though.

Who knows about the US Open but Jelena is taking this comeback the right way.
Basically like a marathon runner getting miles into their legs as preparation - Jelena is getting as many matches into herself as possible to build up for a 2009 tour assault. Being on clay too, she gets to hit a stack of balls as well as gain conditioning gradually without risking injury. You'll probably find she'll enter more 50 to 75K's later on to test herself - but I would say this is the reason for playing so many 25K's.
Hopefully she enters US Open though - just as guide to see where she's at.
