SPECIAL ARCHIVE OF NEWS ABOUT TENNIS AND JELENA DOKIC FOR SECOND PART OF 2001 INCLUDING SEPTEMBER AND OCTOBER.

Wednesday 07 November. 2001- Time to get some rest

By Ljubisa Bojic

Jelena Dokic of Yugoslavia will not play in  Pattaya, Thailand as she decided to take a break after every week of play since Wimbledon. Reportedly she will spent her vacation in Serbian capital city Belgrade where she has a house. Dokic said that she will not play Australian open because Australia is far away. Because lack of time I would not be able to report every day. Therefore please go to message board for latest news and updates as I shall try to post some there. E-mail me if message board does not work. Tank's to Ibrahim Acikgoz who is new video creator of DokicJelena.com. Videos will be posted in a week.

INTERVIEW FROM HER LATEST BELGRADE VISIT WHERE SHE IS NOW:

Q: Where do you think you’ll be this time next year at WTA rankings?
Jelena: I had very good year. I haven’t even planned to enter top ten this season. It is going to be very hard to stay there, but for now my plan is to stay there and to play good tennis.
Q: It is very clear even now that you are one of the hottest favorites for the best sportsman/woman of the year in Yugoslavia. Would you like to win that title?
Jelena:  Of course. I have Yugoslavian passport just one year and there is already chance for me to be best sportsperson of the year. I’d be very happy.
Q: Who is the best tennis player for you at the moment?
Jelena: I think that there are lot of good tennis players. Williams and Davenport have played fewer tournaments this year but they have best results. Than there are Davenport and Capriati who are taking over each other for the top spot. In my opinion the most powerful are Davenport and Williams. They have very different style but for me they are the best.

Q: Has media attitude changed towards you since you turned 18 and got Yu passport?
Jelena: Since I took Yu passport last season, all my titles I won as a Yugoslav. My attitude towards media has changed, I had lot of problems while I lived in Australia, but I’ve learnt something. The media attitude hasn’t changed since I turned 18.
Q: Why does Jelena won’t play Australian Open?

Jelena: I’ve played a lot of tournaments this year and I really want good rest. Australia is very far and travelling there would be a strain for me. Even though I’ll miss first Grand Slam I plan to start playing earlier than last season. This year I started In April and next one I’ll start February.

Q: Have you got the chance to see Yugoslavia?

Jelena: Not yet, but I plan to stay her for long time and I’ll have plenty  time for things like that.
 

Jelena's November Belgrade vacation

Here is interview in Serbian sent to me by Madonna. I did not have time to translate it and if someone of you has send me on my e-mail.

Uvek su postojale teniserke koje ne odgovaraju drugim
teniserkama i to je slucaj sa Lindzi Devenport i
Jelenom Dokic.Nasa Jelena je imala dosta problema sa
igrom protiv Devenportove,sto se najbolje videlo u
poslednja dva meca.Lindzi ima snazan servis,kao i
retern,a to ne odgovara Dokicevoj.Primetio sam i da je
Amerikanka za nijansu brza nego ranije,tako da
kombinacijom tih elemenata dobijate pravu tenisku
masinu-smatra Radmilo Armenulic,savezni selektor
jugoslovenskih reprezentacija.
Devenportova vodi sa 5:0 u pobedama protiv Jelene
Dokic.Da li to moze negativno da utice na nasu
teniserku?


-Kao sto sam rekao,igra Lindzi ne odgovara Dokicevoj,i
to je osnovni problem.Takodje,ona je daleko iskusnija
i snaznija od Jelene,ali to ne treba da je opterecuje
i siguran sam da ce uskoro srusiti nepobedivost
Devenportove.Mozda ne u Minhenu,ali vrlo
brzo,verovatno na betonu ili sljaci.Odranije znam da u
Minhenu forsiraju najbrzu mogucu podlogu,bar je tako
bilo ranije zbog Borisa Bekera,a to odgovara
Devenportovoj,i recimo Sereni Vilijams.Ne treba
zaboraviti ni da Jelena u prvom kolu igra protiv Megan
Sonesi,teniserke koja se takodje odlicno snalazi na
brzim podlogama.


Sta bi ste savetovali Jeleni da promeni u igri protiv
Devenportove?
-Dogovorio sam se sa Damirom Dokicem,Jeleninim ocem,da
je pratim po turnirima i savetujem.U ovom slucaju za
nju je najvaznije da razbije sablon igre Lindzi
Devenport.To znaci da mora cesce da koristi skracene
lopte,kako bi amerikanka izlazila na mrezu.Vazno je i
da je ''lomi'' ritmom,a ne da se drzi samo jednog
udarca.Ne sme da gubi strpljenje,vec da protivnicu
''seta'' po terenu.Pred Jelenom je sjajna buducnost i
nema razloga za brigu.


Jelena Dokic je ove godine igrala u sest finala i
osvojila je tri turnira-Rim,Tokio i Moskvu.
-Samo u jednoj sezoni Jelena je pokazala sav svoj
talenat i budite sigurni da je glavni kandidat za
najbolju sportiskinju Jugoslavije 2001.godini-dodao je
Radmilo Armenulic.

Saturday 27 October. 2001- Straight to semi-finales

By Ljubisa Bojic

Dokic of Yugoslavia had a tough time yesterday but she managed to overcome Alexandra Stevenson in straight sets, 6-3, 7-5. Stevenson's main resistance was shown in precious serves. She even got to the lead of 4-2 but Jelena returned to the match and crush her Alexandra like a ton of bricks. Aggressive comeback of powerful Jelena stopped Stevenson and totally interrupted her rhythm. Therefore there is a hope that Dokic of Yugoslavia is mature now and ready to make camback from every problem-situation.  

However if Jelena goes all the way to finales she would play against Lindsay Davenport. Fans will certainly wait another collision with hope that Jelena has enough both experience and hard-work to prevail.   

Contrary today's job should be easy. Jelena Dokic will play against Iroda Tulyaganova of Uzbekistan. She defeated Tatiana Panova 6-2, 6-4 at yesterday'a center court match.

Saturday 20 October. 2001- Booked ticket for semi-finales

 By Ljubisa Bojic

After yesterday's great victory over Silvia Farina Elia of Italy Dokic made her path to the semi-finales of Zurich's Swisscom challenge. It was not easy task and Dokic lost focus on the game as she was down 3:1 in the first set but Jelena managed to take a first set 6:4. In second set Jelena was loosing 4:1 but managed to pull back and achieve second set score 7:6. Finally result of the match 6:4, 7:6 shows how things can go wrong way. But it is important that Jelena destroyed all problems and booked ticket for semi-finales where she will play against  Nathalie Tauziat of France. That should be easy task for hottest player on the WTA tour and 1oth player in the world.

 

Courtesy of Neil Paton you will be able to see interview from New Idea magazine. Jelena gave this interview after her arrival to Florida.

Friday 19 October. 2001- Chanda Rubin defeated at Swisscom challange

 By Ljubisa Bojic

Hottest player in woman tennis circuit  JelenaDokic won match against Chanda Rubin of America in second round of Swisscom challenge tournament. Despite result 6-4, 6-4 it was not so easy as Dokic committed 11 double faults and 34 unforced errors. It will be Farina Ellia from Italy who will try to challenge our queen. After winning two important tournaments last month Dokic is expected to become player of the month. Jelena gained lot of self-confidence that will be required in next matches of her. Apparently Jelena had spare time that she used to see some turistic attractions and beaustiful countryside of Switcherland. For latest reports and updates on developing story log on our message board because we expect live reports from Zurich. Now see latest interviews from Zurich:   

"I haven't played since Moscow and that's tough," said the 10th ranked Dokic. "But it's something I had to deal with and now that it's done I'm happy.

 

"The surface here is a little slower than what we have been playing on but I've got use to it and I think it suits my game."

Interview with Jelena Dokic (18 October 2001)

Was it a tough match?

Yea but I played her six months ago so that was also tough, and I’ve been here for a few days, and not to play till the last day that’s possible is tough, but you know, it’s something you have to deal with, and now that it’s over and done with, I’m happy.

(Inaudible question)

I think when she started complaining a little bit, I think that was just concentration. I don’t think it was my serve really, I had two or three points for 4-1, and then I was two breaks down, 4-3 and a break down again like I was in the first, so it’s just I think mental more than anything.

Are you happy with your year?

Yea I am pretty happy with the way it has gone. My goal wasn’t to be in the top ten this year, but that’s where I am right now, and you know, to win as many tournaments as I have also wasn’t my goal, but the year has been really good for me and I have had really good results on all sorts of surfaces.

How did you find the surface here?

A little slow I think. The other indoor tournaments that we’ve been playing at I think were a lot quicker than this one was, but you know, it’s something I’ve gotten used to and I think it suits my game.

Thursday 18 October. 2001- Exclusive interview before match in Zurich

 By Ljubisa Bojic

Dokic will play against Chanda Rubin in second round of Swiccsom challenge on center court later today. Match is scheduled to start after 2:00 PM. Rubin defeated Angels Montolio of Spain 6-1, 6-3 in opening round of Zurich tournament. Jelena and Chanda played at beginning of the year at exhibition tournament in Hong Kong and Jelena won that match due Chanda's injury. However we don't have realistic reason for concern considering Dokic's last moth successes. Rubin is great volley player and it has some very good matches in recent period. Therefore there is hope that Dokic will not take Rubin lightly and enter match without concentration.

 

Jelena Dokic strikes toward top of the world (from Vecernje Novosti daily newspaper)

Tennis racquet goes along beauty

10th world tennis player went modeling and she makes advertisements for everything, from clothes to perfumes. She does not travel only two months in year. She does not have time for love. Next moth she will come to Yugoslavia again.


In ancient mythology of Greece beautiful Jelena, daughter of Zevs and Lada, sister of Kastor and Poluks, was meaning of beauty. According to the legend Jelena was reason for Trojan war because she was kidnapped from her husband Menolajus by Paris who was son of Troja’s king Prijam.

Yugoslavia is rich with Jelena’s and her greatest flower is Jelena Dokic. She is 10th tennis player of the world who is attracting people with her game and beauty. But holding racquet in hands, making serves and hitting ball is not easy. For that achievement power is required and power is destroying feminine. Does Jelena agree with that?

I have not thought about that. Tennis is sport. I think that we are all feminine.

There are rumors that you walked fashion runway?

It is correct. That goes with tennis. I made advertisement for everything from clothes to perfumes. All tennis players so that and it is not bad for game.

You become adult 12th April current year. You are already in top ten. How do you feel fame?

I did not get to the world of tennis overnight. It was more like going from one step to another, so I did not notice the difference.

Is it hard to be Jelena Dokic?

No.

Have you ever wished to be regular girl- to go to university, go to nightclubs?

Maybe sometimes but I picked tennis and I knew what’s going to be like.    

How much has tennis taken from your youth and how much has it given?

Tennis has given me lot and taken lot from me. It depends from which angle you are watching. There is great difference between regular person and person who play tennis.

 Do you have friends and time for hanging out with them?

I don’t have a lot of friends. Sometimes we are hanging out during the tournaments. I travel from 10 to 12 moths. I am changing place very often. But that is my choice and prize of success.

You have house in Florida and you live like nomad? You travel from one town to another, from one hotel to another. How do you maintain that?

I used to that. I live that rhythm for last five years. Everyone who plays tennis must get used to it. You must be strong psychologically.

Everybody ask you about boyfriend. Do you have time for love?

No, So far. I already told you that I travel 10 months and my boyfriend must be the right one.

With you there is one of the parents always. Who is better?

Family means lot to me. I would not do anything without of their support. My father Damir has greatest authority in tennis and my mother Ljiljana is same like every other mother.

You have been in Belgrade for few days?

That time went so fast. It was fantastic. I also trained here and I have done some jobs.

You said that you would come (to Yugoslavia) again in November?

Yes because I would like to have some rest, I want to run from tennis and medias. No hard fillings but next time when I came here I shall make sure that nobody knows where I am going to have vacation. I shall meet some our writers. I adore to read poetry and prose.

(About Burek- Serbian special dish) I could not resist that specialty of our national kitchen in Belgrade.  I found one bakery and burek is much better here than in Sidney.

Her parents and brother Sava are her strongest support. But when she step out on the court she is alone. What do you think in critical moments and what do you use to make yourself feel better?

I think only about the match. I enter every match with positive thoughts and I never think that I will lose some match.

Are you superstitious?

No I am not.

Sunday 14 October. 2001- Jelena will strike again for 4th title in Zurich 

 By Ljubisa Bojic

Jelena Dokic of Yugoslavia will strike again for her next title in Zurich. Dokic is seeded 4th and got first round bye and she will play probably against Chanda Rubin of America in second round of Zurich tournament on Wednesday or Thursday. She has pretty easy draw and we can expect great display of skills. After that in third round Dokic is expected to face Anke Huber. That match should be easy but Jelena should not relax her self. If she go all the way to the semi-finales there is Martina Hingis to beat and I am almost sure Dokic will do it because of huge motive she has. 

DokicJelena.com gave efforts to get live coverage from Zurich from its members. After her trip to Germany, Dokic will go to Thailand to play not less important tournament. DokicJelena.com team is trying to establish its network in Bangkok in order to get live reports from there as well.

Friday 12 October. 2001- Jelena is safe and sound in Belgrade

By Ljubisa Bojic

Jelena Dokic of Yugoslavia arrived to Belgrade today in order to extend visa. Dokic's travel to Belgrade with her mother Ljiljana is a smart move considering war stage in USA and very dangerous threat of anthrax (biological weapon) attack in Florida where Jelena has a house. It is relief for all fans when we know that Jelena is on the safe place- Yugoslavia.

Jelena has not been in her Belgrade house for long time, about few months. It is great joy for her to see Belgrade again although she will not have time to enjoy in it.

Her next scheduled tournaments are in Zurich, Germany and Papaya, Thailand. These tournaments can help Jelena to go further in her top-ten list crusade toward 8th place.

EXCLUSIVE: Best Yugoslav tennis player arrived in Belgrade to extend visa

from Austrian  - Serbian newspaper

Dokic: I am on the right way

Belgrade- Jelena Dokic who is Yugoslav tennis queen, arrived in Belgrade. She came together with her mother Ljilja (Ljiljana) to extend visa so she can continue her furious crusade toward top of tennis world. Jelena Dokic will play in Zurich 17th October for her next title. When we spoke with her about two years ago she told us that she has a goal to enter top 15 players in the world. After she won the tournament in Moscow where she was better than home-crowd-favorite Elena Dementieva, Dokic entered top ten.

I came to Belgrade, to extend visa for future competitions. I entered top ten, but our people are great and they want only the top. I followed matches of Yugoslavian champions- water polo players, basketball players, and volleyball players. Therefore I realized that I must chase only first place so I can be on the level of most successful sport nation in the world. I am very sorry that I will not be able to enjoy in beauties  of Belgrade, but I will find time for that in the future. At a present it is most important for me to continue with good matches and victories so I can go further toward top in the list of best tennis players in the world.

You won the finale match against Elena Dementieva and her home-crowd in Moscow without any problems?

Elena Dementieva will make great success in the future. I knew that her crowd would cheer aggressively until she starts to lose. That is characteristic of crowd in Moscow and we (Serbians) are different from them. I followed matches of Janko Tipsarevic in Davis cup and I admired support of our crowd until last moment of the match. I have a dream to play in front my home crowd in Yugoslavia.

What are your future plans?

I already answered that question. People in our country push our sportsman and sportswoman to the top with their fantastic support. I need much more effort in order to get to the top, but I think that I am on the right way to do that- said Jelena Dokic.

 

Dokic is first seeded- from Vecernje novosti newspaper

Bangkok (Beta agency)- Jelena Dokic of Yugoslavia will be first seeded in Thailand tennis tournament that will be held at beginning of the next month- officials of the tournament said.

Tournament’s main sponsor is “Volvo”. Tournament will be played for reward of US$ 110.000 from 3rd to 11th November this year in city of Papaya, which is located 111 km east from Bangkok.

Beside Dokic who entered top ten of WTA tour list yesterday, other competitors will be Bulgarian Magdalena Maleva (16) who won this tournament in 1999 and defending champion Ane Kremer (32) of Luxemburg.

Other more famous participants of “Volvo” cup are Iroda Tulagajanova from Uzbekistan and Pati Snajder from Switzerland. There is also local hope Tamarin Tanasugarn (24) who will try to repeat success dating from 1996 when she got to the finales of the tournament. She has not won her first professional title until no; last week she lost in Tokyo finales from Monica Seles.

Wednesday 10 October. 2001- As victory of Jelena unfolds, reactions are numerous

By Ljubisa Bojic

Dokic announced that she was forced to withdraw from  Kiwi cup in China's town of Shangai. However there is possibility that Dokic will play in Zirih, Germany.

I'm disappointed I can't come back to Shanghai, because I had a great time there last year. But after straining my ankle early in the Moscow final I need to rest it for the upcoming tournaments. I'm really happy with the way I'm playing right now, so it's a shame I can't make it to Shanghai this year."

When Dokic won we all knew that it is beginning of new era in Yugoslavian tennis. There are lot of talented girls and boys that have great potential. Now they have who to fallow. The same revolution happened in Belgium when two players entered top ten. Jelena's splendid performance is not only a sign of her hard-work but also of her tremendous talent. However this is not end of the story and Jelena is just 18 years old and can do much to improve here game and achieve her full potential. As a conclusion I would briefly suggest that there is much more material to do when we talk about Jelena Dokic and maybe this would be the right time to hair some coach.

Monday 07 October. 2001- She is champion, conqueror and queen of tennis 

By Ljubisa Bojic

"Dementieva strikes back, she is not giving her-self, ball goes on the corner, Dokic bites her on the weakest point, yeah, YES fantastic punch and Dokic proved once again that she is champion, conqueror and queen of art of tennis game."

It is 6-3, 6-3, Dokic won it in straight sets and this goal was accomplished in one hour and eight minutes. What a lovely match and splendid game that have been displayed in front of central court in Moscow today.

I played not at all badly today and consider myself ready for the final," Dokic said before match. And she was more than ready to play against Elena Dementieva of Russia and her home crowd in Moscow.

Ice is broken and she cannot be stopped. Whit this win not only she will enter top ten but also beak well-known psychological shield and make herself consistent player who can win five matches against strong opponents at one time. Consistency is only way to win major tournaments and grand slams which should be her next goal. 

What is next? Jelena Dokic will visit for first time beautiful city of Shangai in Shout-east China. After that there is scheduled one more tournament in Germay's city of Zurich. Jelena shown that she posses incredible amount of durability. That is making question? Is she human? Someone would say: No she is a goddess. We will see when she will stop and take a rest in Yugoslavia or her Belgrade house.

Tuesday 02 October. 2001- Kremlin cup will be good move

By Ljubisa Bojic

Jelena Dokic of Yugoslavia will play first round of Kremlin cup in Moscow today against Lina Krasnoroutskaya of Russia. Dokic needs very small number of points to enter top ten and she can gain enough by wining few rounds at this highly important tournament in Russia. Although Krasnoroutskaya will have home crowd cheering for her number of Dokic  fans have been significantly increased since beginning of current year.

Last week Dokic played in Laipzig cup, Germany, but she reportedly lost first round. She received bad critics that she is non-stabile and immature player. Her fans know how that famous "hart attack" tactic works. However prime reason of her loss in Germany is that she is very tired right now, because of remarkable busy and successful season but she (Jelena) is willing to play more and to give her last atom of strength in order to open gate toward ten best players in the World. This (Kremlin cup) is her significant chance to make her dream, desire and course of the year come true. Entering top ten will be honor but also great responsibility and Dokic will have to defend her points, make her stabile and non-shaky on that fragile place and prepare herself for final strike- Destroying Capriati, Venus and Hingis. These arrogant players standing on the top must be defeated and we (fans) all know that Dokic is capable of doing so. At the end I have to excuse myself for not being capable in gaining time for editing and making this site for few days.

Sunday 23 September. 2001- Jelena Dokic into semifinals in Tokyo

By Milan

The best Yugoslavian tennis player Jelena Dokic has qualified for semifinals match of international WTA tournament in Tokyo. The tournament is played for the money prize of 565.000 $.

Jelena was better than American Meilen Tu in the quarterfinals match played today in Tokyo. She celebrated a 6:2,6:2 win where she came up with a powerful serve with almost no mistakes. Beside this, Jelena’s game was so precise, confident and flawless that American did not stand a chance in today’s match. Meilen Tu was the only American playing singles that represented USA in Tokyo. Monica, Capriati and Serena all withdrew from Toyota Cup due to the attack on America.

“This weekend has an enormous importance for me, because if I triumph in Toyota Cup the 10th place in the world will not be far away from my sight. By winning this tournament I can count on being among the 10 best players in the world. That would be amazing, because I would finish this year above all my expectations,” said Jelena, who won her first trophy in May this year at the Italian Open in Roma.

Semifinals will be more than interesting. Jelena will play Belgian Kim Clijsters, number 1 seed, who defeated number 7 seed Tamarine Tanasugarn of Thailand with 6:3, 6:1. Judging by the result of both matches we can conclude that Jelena and Kim masterminded the same games. They both lost four games in two sets that each of them played at the Toyota Princess Cup today.  Jelena and Kim have played three times so far. Eighteen years old Jeca, the 11th player in the world, won their first meeting at last year's Fed Cup. Two other times that these two players met Jelena was not too successful. Last time that they played at the Heineken Trophy in the Netherlands Jelena lost 6:4, 6:2. Kim Clijsters, this year's French Open runner-up who lost against Jennifer Capriati, has proclaimed that she is feeling very confident and positive about everything in Toyota Cup.

This is a good opportunity for Jeca to reap benefits of this match. And these benefits are pretty much high. Getting more points to capture the place number 10 in the world, continuing her winning streak, 560,000 $ in money prize, gaining her confidence that she can beat players from the top 10 list, evening the score of wins in matches that Kim and Jeca played against each other (played 3 matches where Kim leads 2:1 in wins), and so on.


What to say in the end? This is going to be a heck of a match between two 18 years old players from the top of worlds tennis.

Here is some info on Jeca's next opponent!

Friday 19 September. 2001- Jelena powered her way into quarterfinals !!

By Milan

The best Yugoslavian tennis player and the 11th player in the world Jelena Dokic made it to the third round (quarterfinals) of international WTA tournament, which is being played in Tokyo for the prize of 565.000 $.

After receiving a first round bye Jelena defeated Russian Lina Krasnoroutskaya in the second round 6:4, 6:4. Jelena, the third seed, did not have an easy job against unseeded Russian today at Ariake Colosseum. Even though Jelena recorded one more victory today she was not satisfied with her play in this match.

“I’m not satisfied with what I showed today in my match. It’s evident that I did not play well, but it was enough to win. I’m glad that I passed through this hard match because Lina Krasnoroutskaya was playing a good game – Jelena said”. Jelena also mentioned that she still feels the jet lag caused by a long trip from America to Japan.

Jelena is finally showing some consistency in her games. She’s lost her final match against Monica Seles last week in Brazil. Except that match, Jelena’s been on a winning run since the US Open quarterfinals. That’s a very positive improvement for Jeca who is aiming to capture her second title after she won Italian Open in May. We are all pleased to see Jeca getting some consistency in the last couple of tournaments.

In the third round Jeca will meet American Tu Meilen who defeated Lizel Huber of South Africa by 6:7( 6:8 ), 6:1, 7:5. Meilen is the only American playing singles in Japan because Capriati, Seles, and Serena backed out due to the attack on America.

Monday 17 September. 2001- Dokic finished second in Brazil

By Ljubisa Bojic

It was 6-3, 6-3 and Dokic of Yugoslavia finished second in Brazil against Monica Selez who is ex-Yugoslav  tennis player. After that victory Dokic will participate  at Toyota Princes cup in Tokyo, Japan. She should play her first match in Thursday as she dropped doubles competition because she wants to focus herself on entering top 10. Stay tuned at message board and front page Breaking news as information will come hour by hour.

Jelena Dokic said: "I am a bit disappointed by the way I played today, especially since I had only lost 10 games on my way to the final," Dokic said. "Monica served very well and I was unable to dictate the points since I was not serving well." Jelena also added this: "My goal was to reach the final and I did it although it would have been nice to win the tournament."

Marcelo RuschelThis is one more statement of Jelena from Brazil. It is in Serbian language and from "Blic" newspapers.

More than all I want to win this tournament. It's been a long time from my first title and I think that I'm on a good way to triumph. I feel great in Brazil and I play in a good form, which was seen from two previous matches, said Jelena Dokic, who defeated Croatian Iva Majoli with 6:1, 6:2 before she defeated Samanta Rivs.


We know that Jelena's wishes did not come true but there is lots of time for it.

Monika Selez quoted: "It was a very close match despite the scores. Jelena was playing aggressively and not missing many balls. She was going for the lines. I tried to raise the level of my game and to play better tennis."

Sanex WTA Tour A Letter From Sanex WTA Tour CEO Bart McGuire and COO Josh Ripple Friday, September 14, 2001 

As we end this very difficult week, we would like to provide an update on Tour actions related to the tragic events in the United States. The Sanex WTA Tour staff has spent a large amount of time over the past few days in consultation with our security advisors to make operational decisions involving our Tournaments and Players in Hawaii and Brazil. We have focused equal attention on next week's events in Quebec City, Canada and Tokyo, Japan. In addition, we are assessing plans for the balance of the season in light of events that might occur outside the tennis world. The Sanex WTA Tour decided this week to continue play in Hawaii and Brazil after communication with our staff, Tournament officials and security advisors. In Hawaii, we did cancel matches on Tuesday out of respect for the horrific human devastation in the United States and in the interest of security for our Players, fans and staff. In addition, in observance of today's National Day of Mourning in the United States, there will be no match play in Hawaii between 12:00 noon and 1:00 p.m. local time and a moment of silence will be observed prior to start of play. There have been questions about whether we should cancel or postpone future Tournaments, mainly because of security or logistical issues. We have concluded, after consultation with our security advisors, that it is appropriate to continue with the Tour as scheduled, but with some adjustments. Due to immediate logistical concerns, we have postponed the start of our qualifying in Quebec City and Tokyo by one day, and we will continue to monitor the situation in case further adjustments might be needed. We have also informed our Players and Tournaments that the Tour will not enforce its rules regarding Player withdrawals next week in order to respect the Players' personal needs and concerns relating to this catastrophe. Finally, we have requested that all Sanex WTA Tour Players and Tournaments pay tribute to the thousands of people, not only Americans, who have lost their lives or are missing. We are also considering how the Tour can contribute to the relief efforts currently underway. On behalf of the Sanex WTA Tour Players and staff, we extend our deepest sympathies to the families of the victims of these disasters. 

Most sincerely,

 Bart McGuire Josh Ripple Chief Exectuvie Officer Chief Operating Officer Sanex WTA Tour Sanex WTA Tour

Sunday 16 September. 2001- In Brazil semi-finales should be stepped with caution 

By Milan

Jelena into finales    She has just beaten Rossana De Los Rios 6:0,6:2 and will most feasibly play against Monica Seles for the title. Judging by the result the match was a smooth sailing for Jelena and it is certainly encouraging before the finales match. If Jeca wins against Monica it will be the first win vs. her childhood idol. From the past we all know that matches between these two players were always tight and it is reasonable to expect the same kind of match this time. Experience against the youth and power. By playing this tournament in Brazil Jelena has already collected enough points to move to #11 spot in WTA rankings.  Jelena longs to win this match because it will be a tremendous boon for her striving to capture the #10 in WTA rankings. Not only will she be closer to #10 in the world but also she will earn a reasonable amount of money.  The winner of the tournament will capture 100 000$.  I for one expect Jelena to make the cut against Monica and prove that she is the one to count on in the future.

You can do it Jelena, for you and for us the second title in your bright carrier.

Friday 14 September. 2001- Iva Majoli was overcome in Brazil 

By Ljubisa Bojic

Jelena won her first match in Brazil against Iva Majoli of Croatia. Result was 6-1, 6-2. Second round was very good and Jelena have great chances to win current tournament but only if she get enough will determination and concentration to prevail Monika Selez. Dokic of Yugoslavia will probably face Samantha Reevers of USA who is apparently no. 193 in the world. .

Thank god that recent tragic attacks on New York have not been made during US open. In the next weekend DokicJelena.com team will try to cover Brazil open in details.

Thursday 13 September. 2001- In-Depth Analysis

By Andrew 


Before Jelena can become the top player that her talent deserves - up there with
 Monica, Hingis, the Williams sisters, Davenport and Capriati - she must look
 into why she won the first three games and then lost 12 of the next 13. My
 ideas:

 1. Intensity is one of Jelena's virtues, but it may be that she can be TOO
 intense at times, and the storm can blow itself out. There was an article in
 Tennis World about players who play with maximum intensity all the time,
 particularly juniors, who tend to have scores like 0-6 6-0 6-0. I think Jelena
 needs to learn to vary her intensity according to the momentum of the match.

 2. Jelena likes to go for her shots all the time, which is one of the main
 reasons I'm a Jelena fan, but her criticisers say that she lacks variety and
 tactical awareness, and she needs to address this. She needs to have a Plan B,
 to try different things when her `A' game isn't working. She needs to focus on
 moving her opponent round the court, rather than just focusing on going for her
 shots one at a time. I know she can play spreading rallies, hit dropshots, short
 angles, lobs, sliced backhands and volleys, but it's her shot selection (rather
 than execution) and her point construction, that I have doubts about. She could
 do a lot worse than to study Hingis's game, which teaches a lot about tactics.

 3. Psychological factors probably come into it as well. It's mentally difficult
 when you're playing well, but the bubble bursts and you're suddenly struggling
 to win any more games. Jelena needs to forget what led up to the current
 scoreline, and stay in the now. Jelena plays her best when she feels she has
 nothing to lose, which is how she went into this match, but at 3-0 up she was
 probably thinking she should win, knowing that Hingis is vulnerable, which puts
 a lot of pressure on her.

 4. I think Jelena's tournament schedule has been way too heavy. She's barely had
 a week off since the Ericsson Open in March, so she must be jaded, and her
 results haven't been terribly impressive since winning the Italian Open. She
 needs to stop aiming for ranking points directly, and instead optimise her
 schedule so that she's fresh and raring to go at every tournament she plays.
 Forget the Tier III/IV tournaments - with her talent and ability, she should
 just play Tier I/II tournaments (in moderation) and the Grand Slams.

 At least from what I've heard Hingis played superbly, despite having looked very
 vulnerable in recent months. We have to blame Hingis for the defeat as well as
 Jelena!

Monday 10 September. 2001- Dokic EMPORIUM

By Ljubisa Bojic

There are many rumors that famous and most prestigious fashion designer Giorgo Armani plans to open new store called Sporting Armani and therefore to complete his life-style fashion stores collection which include Giorgo Armani, Armani Colleztioni,  Armani Jeans, Armani exchange, Armani parfums, Armani cosmetics etc. New chain of Armani sporting stores will show up after his brand new Armani casa furniture collection shops open around the globe in New York, Hong Kong etc. According to rumors in press circles Jelena Dokic would be one player model who will represent new sporting fashion collection of Giorgo Armani. Two weeks ago Armani gave an exclusive interview to the Newsweek where he said that he will take the business in his hands and expand it around the world by promoting Giorgo Armani complete life style. Casa Armani will be hi first step in expanding his Emporium. Few tennis players will be his models to promote new sporting collection which should conquer world of sport.  If it is true that is certainly the good news which could improve Jelena's financial situation and make her enter in a list of tennis players who have highest earnings. 

Well Jelena Dokic will not take a break after all. She will play at Brazil open starting tomorrow as second seed. Dokic received bye in first round. In the second round she will face Iva majoli or qualifier. In doubles competition Dokic is 1st seed and will pair up with  Virginia Ruano-Pascal against qualifier in the first round of Brazil open. On her side of the draw are Silvia Farina-Elia, Cristina Torrens Valero, Patty Schnyder. Monica Selez could play aginst Dokic at the finales.

The second rumor that goes all around us these days is that Jelena is dating with tennis player Tommy Roberto of Spain. This picture have been on DokicJelena.com since Poland Idea Prokom open which is the time Jelena and Roberto apparently started dating each other. Is it truth or not???

Wednesday 05 September. 2001- Thinking about the next to come 

By Ljubisa Bojic

Jelena’s next tournament will be in Japan or Europe. If Dokic decides that she need a break in her Florida house it would be great chance to take off that psychological stress, relax, practice and get back to action fresh.

She was non-concentrated and Yugoslav  lost 4th round New York US open match in Monday from world number one Martina Hingis herself. She was 3-0 lead when everything went downhill. Now we have chance present Dokic's interview from press conference held just after the match. Depressed Jelena Dokic of Yugoslavia did not want to speak a lot because her un-expectable performance in Monday.   


Martina Hingis said: "She (Dokic) came out hitting the ball hard and flat," said Hingis. "I tried to just play my game, putting more topspin on it and getting everything back I could. In the second set, her game fell apart a little.''

Take a look at the new interview from our updated interview section:


US OPEN 2001
NEW YORK CITY
September 2, 2001

M. HINGIS/J. Dokic  6-4, 6-0

An interview with: JELENA DOKIC


MODERATOR: Questions for Jelena. 

Q. At Love-3, could you explain what you think sort of happened? 

JELENA DOKIC: I don't know. I just lost my concentration a little bit. I just 
started to miss a little bit more. I was going for a little bit too much. You 
know, I didn't expect her to play as well as she did. She actually, you know, 
played well. I didn't break her there at 3-2, and I had a couple breakpoints. 
Mentally, I went down and lost my serve. That's where everything went down the 
hill after that. 

Q. How frustrated were you by that first set result? 

JELENA DOKIC: I mean it was mentally very -- I mean, especially having 3-Love, a 
break up. You know, even though I lost my serve at 3-1, I still had chances at 
3-2. I was unlucky to lose that game. That's where I went down. You know, even 
though I lost the first set, though, I sort of tried to regroup. I just, again, 
went for too much, and she didn't miss. 

Q. To lose a love set there in the second set, is this going to be a loss which 
is going to be difficult for you to get over or won't it be a setback for you?

JELENA DOKIC: It won't be a setback. I'll be thinking about it. It's never good 
to lose. But, you know, I lost to the No. 1 player in the world. You know, I had 
a close first set. But, you know, it's just something I have to learn from and 
have to try and improve on next time. You know, it won't be a huge setback, but 
I'm definitely disappointed. 

Q. What is your schedule for the rest of the year? How many tournaments are you 
going to play?

JELENA DOKIC: I'm playing some in Europe. I'm not sure yet what I'm going to do. 
Maybe take some time off because I've been playing quite a few tournaments. I'll 
see. 

Q. Are you a little jaded? Have you played too much?

JELENA DOKIC: No. I think it's my first year full-time. I'm not really 
(inaudible) yet. I like playing a lot of matches, so it's not a problem for me. 
I think sometimes you just need a break. Physically and mentally I'm a little 
bit, you know, feeling it right now. So maybe a week or two won't hurt.

Q. There's a feeling about Martina that the game has gotten a little too big for 
her, that to win a Slam again, she's going to have to get by too many big 
hitters. Do you believe that or do you think she can win again, a Slam?

JELENA DOKIC: You know, it's very difficult. She has the game. It's just a 
matter of, you know, she struggles with the big hitters, she struggles beating 
them, beating two or three of them in a row. That's a big task to beat maybe one 
Williams sister, then two, then maybe Lindsay and maybe Jennifer. You know, it's 
something that she's struggling with right now. You know, she's won Slams 
before. I definitely think she has a chance. You can never count her out. But 
it's getting tougher for her. You know, it's just a matter of she hasn't been 
playing that well. You know, I think, I felt like today she did play well. But I 
think she'll probably still struggle against the bigger hitters.

Monday 03 September. 2001- Headache because lack of plan B

By Ljubisa Bojic

It was 6-4, 6-0, and Dokic lost from Martina Hingis, but as a consolation we now know what is a problem with Jelena and that presents first and extremely important step in solving the problem, which we knew it was reality but we did not know exactly what it was. Last Dokic's match at 4th round of US open gave us many answers. 

At the start of the match Dokic attacked strongly, gained many good points and  made 3-0 lead. After that, her opponent Hingis made comeback as she won next 4 games though in almost every single one of them deuce was played and players were very equal. Afterwards Jelena managed to overcome Hingis and won one game to be 4-4. Then Hingis took a lead making 5-4. It was another equal game with deuce when Hingis won first set.

In second set Jelena did panic and was nervous a lot. Problem is not only lack of concentration as we taught. Jelena did not have plan B and she was depressed. Therefore Yugoslav rushed and tried to finish every point as fastest as she can. She lost her rhythm completely. But the real word is that this kind of behavior on court is unacceptable. It was childish and immature and many of her fans almost got hart attack as she did not make many returns of ball to Hingis. 

When we talk about first set,  we can say that Dokic had many unforced errors. Therefore she lost first set not because play of Martina Hingis than because Jelena's own mistakes. Very often she punched ball to hard that it got over basic line.

As a conclusion Jelena have to make huge efforts to overcome psychological problem. She has to have plan B at all times. She cannot be destroyed just because losing one set. She must be aware that she can come back to kick some ass and be concentrated at all times. When she overcome that problem, which is not so easy as you think, it will be lot easier to win anyone including Hingis, Capriati, Davenport etc. After so busy schedule it is time for Jelena to take a rest and practice hard for next challenges this time in Asia.       

Take a look on new interview from fresh updated interview section after US open match against Vicario. Photo section is updated as well, with photos from fourth round of US open against Martina Hingis.

Saturday 01 September. 2001- She is a bomb that blow away Vicario

By Ljubisa Bojic

In third round of New York US open, Jelena Dokic of Yugoslavia defeated A. Sanchez-Vicario 6-4, 7-5. Dokic will face world number one Martina Hingis in 4th round of tournament held in Flushing Meadow. Good thing is that Hingis is not fit and form so she can not gain momentum. Yesterday's match against Iva Majoli of Croatia 4-6 6-4 7-6(5) shows that clearly. Match of supreme importance for Jelena against Hingis will be played in Sunday. Dokic has great chances to win that match if she keeps concentrate and establishes her rhythm thru the match. If the spectacular victory for Yugoslav occurs, she will enter top ten very soon, which is highly important. In doubles competition, Dokic advanced to second round where she and her partner Nadia Petrova will face Tina Krizan and Katarina Srebotnik both from Slovenia. Jelena should explore doubles because that is the area in which she can be number one for sure.  

Photo section is updated with 13 photos from third round of US open and third round of Canadian open:
