The last time she has been in shape was around ten years ago or so. There is no point coming back when you cannot hit the treadmill for shit. If she does so, I can see her do well in bigger events. Because in lower tier events she usually doesn't give a fuck. I guess Kuala Lumpur was an exception, but I can see her beating TOP50 players in straight sets if she has a good day. Not weighing 170 pounds helps her to have more frequent "good days."
I watched her play Isabella Holland at Sydney this year. The Australian commentators were trying so hard to not make Holland seem like the biggest scrub in the world when Dokic double bagelled her clean and dry.
Terrible news. I'd love to see Jelena make one last push at a serious career at the top, but time isn't going any slower and motivation has always been such an issue for her. Really just sad how things have gone for her in her career.
