I don't know what to expect, either, but it'll be fun to see her go up against a better level of competition. Good for the Bronx TDs for giving her this chance; she really deserves it. Time to bust out of 10K-world!
Hi Guys! Jelena sounds like a really exciting prospect and thanks for the videos - love that backhand!!! Here's her draw in Albuquerque Too bad she is the #1 seeds draw, but I think she can get through! She's already won her first round match rather handily over the # 5 seed in qualies! Her 2nd round shouldn't be too much trouble either. Looks like she's got a great chance to qualify here.

she got very unlucky that she is in johansson's section because i think that johansson is the only girl who can keep her from qualifying...
very solid first round win though
Well hopefully you are right because Johansson lost today to Krivencheva, and Jelena won again, so she's in the final around!!! Krivencheva is rather notorious for her slicy dicey game and nasty attitude, so hopefully Jelena will come prepared and blow her off the court. Could be tricky though. GL Jelena!!! Keep going!!!
