wow! it woulda been interesting and suprising to see Jelena at a challenger!!!!

But it does seem like she's not playing anywhere at all this week - I wonder why???

I think she woulda had a good chance to win some matches at either Bordeaux or Bali!

I don’t believe that bombing was the reason why she withdrew. We all know from the past that she was not afraid to travel and play after 9/11.



I’m pretty sure the reason why she withdrew was similar to US summer hard court season tournies withdrawals. She is still not ready to play. She needs more time to sort things out in her life…

She played USO only because it’s Grand Slam IMHO!

I couldn't agree more but I'm still finding it hard to let go. Jelena shouldn't have played the US Open. Now she must be thinking "I was so close to beating Dechy..." instead of resting up and getting ready for the indoor season had she skipped the US Open.

And Jelena is a fearless person. I think the things she's had to put up with in her young life so far has made her a strong person. No bombing would stop her had she really wanted to play Bali.

well, she had her summer vacation, so she is probably "mentally" adjusting for skiing season, it takes time for her

Seriously, i don't think it's good pulling out of Bali, and i heard somewhere she is pulling out of China tour. It will be too late to come back strong and defend her fortune at Zurich

NO


Jankovic suffers from severe Chinese syndrome! Only God can help her!

It turned out to be fake news. So far she is still in.
