Anyone else seeing all the hype surrounding Jankovic resulting in a 1st round loss?

Not that I'm saying she's overhyped (because she's one of my favorites to watch), but I can't help but remember around the time of the French Open last year when Petrova had won a few lead-ups, beat Justine once even, and was considered a heavy favorite only to crash out early. I hesitate to get my hopes up too much on Jelena especially if she goes deep in Sydney. I don't know, what do you guys think? Do you think she'll be burnt out in Melbourne? Or will she cave under the pressure of being a favorite for the title? To all Jelena fans, keep your fingers crossed and hope that I'm full of shit

petrova crashed out cuz of an injury. i think she'll do fine at ao if she isn't tired.

she should have sex b4 her matches. it would elevate her to an ethereal mental state capable of battling fatigue.

im more worried cuz she's also always playing doubles. i hope she doesnt play doubles at ao. she could use rest between days!

Well, Jelena is one of my favourite players, but she is completely ridiculous thinking that you can train all off season, win Auckland, do well at Sydney and not crash out early at the Australian Open.

She should never have came to Sydney

any player who wins two events immediately before a Grand Slam, always loses in the first couple of rounds at the Slam.

I'm more worried about a 2nd round loss. She seems to have a developed a mental block against it after that horrendous loss to Craybas in 2004. Last year she admitted that it still kept haunting her whenever she played in Melbourne afterwards.

dont like jankovic, she's turning into one of the players i love to see lose. but she is good and i expect her to do well at the australian and all year long. she is one of the best of the newer players, but she's got a bad attitude. she has off days at the australian so, she'll be ok.

No she isn't being over-hyped....I just think she is living up to her own hype...she is on top of her game and it's great to see!

Anyway, I don't think she will get fatigued yet...but I hope she cuts down on her schedule this year

No more than 20 please!!!

She's done so well this year. Nothing to do with hype. Having said that, she must be exhausted by now.

We're talking about a women who should be called the WTA's energizer bunny.
There's no hype surrounding her yet.
If she wins Sydney, then there will be some hype.
You have to understand that Jankovic is a VERY STREAKY PLAYER.
She can easily win 10 in a row and then lose 10 in a row.

She's on a incredible run right now and she's not going to stop especially when she can get to the top 10 with a good result this week.
She will not lose in the first round of the Australian.

We're not talking about Elena Dementieva who seems frail in the Australian heat.
Jankovic is an athlete in peak fitness with exceptional movement.
She can deal with the schedule she made.

"Everybody always said I didn't get that job because my wife is white. If you're not strong enough to look through that then you have the issue."
-Charlie Strong, assistant head coach of the Florida Gators

Black presidents of the US=1
Black head coaches in the SEC=0
Something needs to change.
