Re: Océane Dodin

To be honest, I don't really have an opinion one way or the other. I just respect her choice and can see why she'd wanna focus on her game right now. Of course these losses are disappointing though...

Re: Océane Dodin

Re: Océane Dodin

And another early loss on hardcourt, she lost 5-7 6-4 1-6 against Rodina


dont know what happened in this 3rd set but it must have been really ugly...

Re: Océane Dodin

Finally she's playing again in a tournament. It would be great to see her win some matchs there

she's playing rodina in R1, then the winner of king/pironkova

the draw :

(2/wc)Jankovic v Hibino
Goncalves v Ozaki
Rodina v Dodin
King v (8)Pironkova

Re: Océane Dodin

I understand what you are saying. But I am sure we will see her in Fed Cup soon
I just don't think it's necessarily that bad to focus on her game and ranking right now. She has improved over the last few months, let's see how far she can go. She has plenty of time to play Fed Cup.

Anyway, she IS in Doha qualies! Plays Rodina. Then it would be Jankovic, whom she beat at the USO a few (2?) years ago.

Re: Océane Dodin

well I deduced she thinks this "format" is useless for her career from what she said before. That's pure deduction but you r right I should add " she PROBABLY" think this group thing is useless for her career..."

she's too young imo with no experience of the top to refuse a fed cup selection. She's not Federer nor Serena Williams. She has to improve her game and tactics but she prefers to stay with dad on their side.
Not fair to her formation with the fft money. She has to pay it back. Well that's my opinion. And many french are thinking quite the same. Not a positive image to her.

Re: Océane Dodin

I don't think it's fair to put words in her mouth like that. Saying she thinks "this group thing is useless for her career" for example. As professional tennis players, they have a choice to accept or refuse a Davis/Fed Cup selection, and a LOT of players opt out of certain ties. She has her reasons, just like Caroline does, and I, for one, think we need to respect that.

That being said, it would be nice if she played Doha qualies. Anyone knows? List is STILL not out.

I dont know why she react like that, so individualistic not seing how great it can be for her to be with champions like Noah and Pierce
she must earn that single match, Noah wont pick her if she's not good and ready to that event.

She can not say "ok since they dont pick me to play I refuse fed cup selection"

she's no one for now but she's acting like she won 20 slams. Better get some modesty and be proud of being part of this national team.
She can represent her country but refuse it. How rude!

I used irony here, she's not named Federer so she can NOT act like she proved how GREAT she is.

Her dad is not doing her right. he must advise her better cause what she can learn in fed cup is much much more than she thinks.
Mary Pierce was a true Champion and can help her reach the top imo.She already reached it and know how to do it;

Her dad is nice but he doesnt know what it takes to reach the top.

Miss Océane Federer (Roger niece) not thinking fed cup team spirit is that important, we all know how many slams she already won isnt it?

she's a bad adviced as Caroline Garcia. That's just crazy refusing to work with such champions as Yannick Noah and Mary Pierce. I can not understand such a bad decision!

she disappointed me. REALLY. Hopefully she' not that "dumb" and will honor her country.
