5-Jelena Dokic (YUG) vs. 12-Lisa Raymond (USA) 2-1
2001-08-20 New Haven Hardcourt R16 Jelena Dokic (YUG) 6-3 6-0
2002-06-10 Birmingham Grass SF Jelena Dokic (YUG) 6-1 7-5
2003-01-27 Tokyo Indoor Carpet QF Lisa Raymond (USA) 6-4 6-2

this is in fact their 1st meeting on clay........
Dokic has already won a Tier I clay title,
but Lisa has never won anything higher than Tier II,
and her surface is not clay............
so the odd does favor Jelena, however,
playing 1st week as the NON TOP 10,
will this have a toll on her confidence?

If Jelena plays her best she will blitz her, if not well Lisa will be happy to take the win. The last result on the head 2 head should not be read too much I think it was only her second match back after her 'break'.

Jelena in 2. i dont think Lisa can hurt her much, that is if Jelena plays properly

i think jelena's drop in the rankings has given her the motivation to fight for matches and to work hard. i'm pretty sure jelena will win.

okay u shouldn't even look at that match. that was Dokic's 2nd match in the whole season after not playing for like 3 months. look at the other matches, Dokic still holds the lead, and do u really think Raymond has anything that can hurt Dokic. no, the only thing that can hurt Dokic is herself, via ue's and df's

Naldo, lisa has a good serve and volley game, which might not be as effective on clay as on other surfaces, but to say that she has nothing to hurt Jelena with is a bit silly. I say Lisa will win...

A match is still a match, you can't compensate her dissapearence for 3 months on a head to head, I geuss the wins Dokic has had have been satisfactory over Raymond, but 3 H2H isn't really a solid foundation to base an outcome of a match on, Lisa's Consistency hopefully will come though, and if Dokic plays like she did agains't Pisnik, I can only see this in favour of Lisa.

Lisa had 0 of 2 with her volleying. I dont think that her volley game is really working at the moment.

I think Jelena will pull out a win. Clay isn't Lisa's surface and if Jelena plays like she did in the 3rd set against Pisnik there should be no problem. However, with Jelena being a little up and down, Lisa has a chance. Just hope Jelena plays well. Good luck Jelena! :D
