Yes, that will be tough as it seems, but playing a qualifier next looks like good enough of a motivation. Would be really nice if she'd open the season with a win like this - over a solid, in-form opponent.
^ They're only done with R2 and already all the seeds in Jelena's half are out: Larcher de Brito (1), Capra (3), Klaffner (5) and Mayr (6). This is an excellent chance for an unseeded player to make the final.
In the QF Jelena plays Camila Giorgi (#324; CH 197). Camila beat Jelena pretty easily (63 62) last Oct. in Rock Hill. Get the revenge, Jelena!
Oh shit, lost 1 & 3 to Giorgi. It was the second time that she's lost in straights to this girl (last year in Rock Hill 25k semis it was 3 & 2). Too bad really, but the season has only just begun so I expect Jele to get much better in the months to come.
