JELENA DOKIC said that she wants tennis fans to start loving the sport's sex symbols for their skill with a racquet as much as their looks. "People should stop looking for a babe," Dokic said. "They should look at tennis players first. There are plenty of good looking girls out here besides Anna. " "Anna hasn't played for a long time. Tennis is definitely looking for someone else and has a lot of better players, some of them good-looking girls. Everyone has definitely found some good looking girls out here other than her." "It's not just tennis anymore. It's much more than that," Dokic said. "It has gone more into shorter skirts, who looks good, who doesn't. I think we all expect that. "The tour has grown. They have used that a little bit and it has helped. There's much more attention on women's tennis because of that. "You shouldn't overexpose this. You should also look at the athleticism and power we have on the tour, not just the looks. All of us just try to compete and beat each other on the court. If you can look good at the same time, it's a bonus" -said Dokic. :bounce:

Btw. Just for the record those words are not in text transcript on USO site. Video clip is just little bit longer.

It seems she was little bit ironic when she talked about other good looking girls same time wearing that breath taking dress. :drool:

At least she was nice about it. The woman asked her if she got sick of being asked these Questions, and she said that she doesnt get sick of them because she expects them or something like that, especially since the women's game is becoming more "sexy" etc. I think the original Q was indicated about her being the new Kournikova at this years open, being classified a "babe" but she sorta turned it around into an important subject: The Media and Tennis, and she did really well expressing her points of view. Word is that her mum was in the stands at todays match so I hope she can go well :)

The video of Jelena's press conference is up on the usopen site. Actually I thought she was handling all the questions very well and she seemed to be at ease with herself and very down to earth.

Many players don't want to have to answer this sort of question (and I don't blame them!). But Jelena handled it beautifully. She is very mature and articulate. It's nice to see. :)
