She's 15-8 this year with a title and has more than halved her ranking since the end of 2010 to #63 . I'd say that's pretty good.

She's not used to playing more than two matches in a week. I buy it.

Take more time to prepare for the red clay.

Well she certainly will be exhausted if she flies half way across the world to play in Melbourne, and then all the way back a couple of days later.

Stosur and Jelena made the right decision considering their respective situations (aka, Sam trying to find form and Jelena trying to consolidate it)

LOL It's just an excuse, she can't be bothered to fly all over to Australia and then fly back to Morocco in 24 hours.

Some of you acting like your faves would fly across the world to play Fed Cup :lol:

The whole competition is a joke. She cbf and I don't blame her.

They should play it in a neutral European site like they do now with football friendlies. Flying that far, especially if you have an injury, is ridiculous. Another thing, why is the ticket price so high, same as Aus Open price, as if they are going to get a huge crowd.

She is exhausted. I understand her. Maybe her body is not exhausted, but body is not everything.

OK, I think it may be smart not to play, but exhaustion :spit:. If it's a hoax, kind of annoying but fine, but if she's actually excited, I am EXTREMELY worried about her fitness level :help:.

If I were the Fed Cup Responsibles in Australia I would offer Ukraine to held the tie with a financial support, I mean Australia will win anyway and it would be better for all players.

she needs to lose the muffin top. then she won't be "exhausted" from playing 23 matches in 4 months...

As a fan, I'm glad she's not playing FED Cup. Instead she needs to focus on WTA tournaments & keep climbing the rankings.

I know her fans say this a lot, and I know my user name is a tad dramatic and my favorite player ever not exactly Miss Stable, but Dokic is Victim Vera/Greta Garbo/Bette Davis on medication! But maybe thats her appeal!

I do feel very sorry for Jelena as damaged childhoods are EXTREMELY difficult to overcome, if ever. As is depression. But sometimes people can fall into the trap of enjoying drama and I fear Jelena has. I just wish she could get a decent Team behind her who have only her best interests at heart, but decent people are hard to find.

I'd rather her take a week off so she can be fresh for the claycourt season instead of overstretching herself and playing Fed Cup. I usually say the same thing when Venus and Serena don't commit for Fed Cup for Team USA.

Why do people assume it's necessarily a physical exhaustion? She might be exhausted mentally, that happens to a lot of players. She's been playing well all season, but her last 2 tournaments have been disappointing, but it's understandable, because as someone said, she hadn't been used to playing more than 1-2 matches per tournament till this year.
Rest up, Jelena! :)

Well, if she finds that winning matches is so mentally draining, perhaps it's time to consider another career, one that is not all about, erm, winning matches.

meh

i wouldn't fly back to aus for fed cup when the clay seasons about to start in europe either

also i think we're taking her excuse a little to seriously, its pretty obvious she's only making something up so she doesn't have to go to aus, i'm sure she's fine
