Highlights video that I made. Jelena is such a fighter and was absolutely dominant in the match. I love the cat fight Barbara had with Leanne White near the end of the match.

Thoughts? :)

Apparently no thoughts since you didn't post link or somethin...

ps. Jelena WAS a fighter, no longer IS.

I liked Schett's game better than Jelena's and I seem to remember her being slightly more aggressive than this reel makes her out to be. So slow. :tape:

Dokic just isn't that mobile anymore. She can't make that BHDTL way off the court or be in position when moving as well anymore.

I think this was in 2000. :confused:

Leanne & Babsi :hearts:

BTW, is this the match when organisers played the wrong Austrian anthem and Babsi got offended? :o

Thanks for the upload. Jelena's defense was impressive in parts and I also noticed that her forehand looks different these days on certain balls.

Well she hasn't come close to being in optimal shape since 2003. Even at AO 2009 she could have been fitter still.

Jelena was 16 back then. Can you find a 16 yo play like that these days ?
No.

Today we have Wozniacki as our young talent. :sad:

Schett had a lovely service motion, and power flowed from it quite easily. Very erratic though, often compromising placement for outlandish serving.

Shame her footwork was so unresponsive too.

Unfortunately its just not the same Jelena on court now:sad:

Schett was a better tennis player than an undercover detective that's for sure.

I FORGOT HOW GOOD SHE WAS :O and at 16.........shame she didnt have issues and all that time away from the court, she couldve really developed her serve in to a weapon rather than liability, and the rest was already there at 16

I think I'm the original uploader of this match. :angel: Not positive, though. :scratch:

Anyway, Jelena really can't move at all anymore. Once you make her run a few steps for a ball, she's totally useless and just dumps the ball into the net with terrible footwork. For some reason she recaptured the mobility and ability to actually sustain a rally at AO 2009, but it's been gone since. With the way she plays, you need to be at optimum fitness and confidence to be effective. She never seems to be in the right place, mentally or physically. :sad:

I miss when Jelena could play this kind of tennis with that footspeed. I remember Virtua Tennis 2 (Sega 2K2) had her as a foot speed strength...*sigh*...if only they could see into the future.

Dokic has great striking ability but how some of those shots are winners baffle me.

Do you have Dokic vs Clijsters?:eek: and I agree with you she was looking very beautiful in that match against Bovina. I think it was on Arthur Ashe Stadium.

OMG I loved Babsi Schett - her and her game. There was just something really aesthetically pleasing about the way she played tennis IMO - kind of why I like Vera and JJ now.

Thanks for the link!

Nostalgia. :bigcry: I remember when I had such high hopes for Jelena.

Schett had a lovely service motion, and power flowed from it quite easily. Very erratic though, often compromising placement for outlandish serving.

Yeah I adored her service motion too.

And she was definitely much more aggressive than this. I remember her coming to the net quite a bit.

I tried to include as many Schett winners as Dokic's but she just didn't have any :sad:. I loved babsi also :hearts:

It's still a shame that the wta with all their aging rules and trying to protect younger players didn't do anything about Dokic schedule in fall 2000. It was totally insane and definitely not weird that she burned out at some point even without her personal problems

This was 2001, yet Jelena was only 16? So she was 14/15 when she beat Martina in the Wimbledon 1st round?! :eek: :confused:

Dokic looks like a different player to the one we've seen recently, even including the AO last year. :sad:

Jelena was such an amazing talent. I hope she can recapture her footspeed and accuracy & possibly win slams.
