Actually I think you struck a nail on the head, she acted just like Y-man today, but she seemed to happy to win, smiling, and pumping her chest!

I think Jelena plays tennis for the money. I know everyone does, but she more so. The Y-man is actually a good comparison

The thing is pappa Damir claims she doesn't exist, which is always nice for her dauther, and that may have troubled her mind and game the last 6months. But she IS a fighter! Her attitude on court sometimes comes through as desinterested, but that's not true.

Her attitude today was awful when she served at 1-4 down in the seond set she just hit 4 clean unforced errors due to not having any patience she just gave another break away she didn't even care and then just gave up the set, and was slumping around the court.

This has actually concerned me for a while. I remember when I first saw her play, the thing that impressed me most was her determination and drive, both of which seem to have escaped her at the moment! Fight girl or even the top twenty won't include you soon!

The commentators mentioned that she used to look as though she was having fun on the court and less fun off it, but now that seems to have been reversed!

i think after getting through that she will be fine for the rest of the tournament...atleast win a few more matches as per usual for her at wimby! very proud of the fact she bounced back up and dug deep at the end

ur right...at 1-4 down in set2 her attitude was SH!T...but i hope shes overcome that and believe she has.

Well, sometimes she doesn't really care! that's true too. She has had matches when she starts well(6-1) loses a break in the second and gives up that set(1-6) and then comes back to win 6-0. Classics include the Conchita and Dementieva vs Dokic 3setters

Dokic vs Dementieva (AmIsland2002) 6-0 6-7 6-1 (on/off/on)

Dokic vs Conchita (Stanford2002) 1-6 6-0 6-1 (off/on)

Dokic vs Kournikova (San Diego02) 6-7 7-6 6-0 (off/on)

Dokic vs Serena x2 6-7 0-6 (gives up) (on/off)

Dokic vs Hingis (1st round 99Wimbledon) 6-2 6-0 (she was motivated)

Dokic vs Venus (Rome2000) 6-1 6-2 (on)

I don't think Hingis was ever thrashed so bad

Thanks.
No signs of new elements in her game? Just poor ball bashing?
