After Warsaw Jankovic could be leading the race!!

my god, if someone had sed this time a year ago, in a years time Jelena Jankovic would have been leading the race to the championships they would have been sent away to the Tracy Austin asylum for bad tennis predictions.

Yet, with a decent performance in Warsaw, she will probably overtake Serena.

However, it will be her 11th tournament, only giving her 6 more tournaments from which to pick up points, including the 3 mandatory Grandslams, so after that she really has very few regular tournaments which will count.

well done though

She'll probably finish within the top 8 players, because there have been a couple of events where she hasn't performed all that well, so if she does do well from now on, the smaller amounts of points gained at tournaments where she hasn't performed that well will drop off.

Re: After Warsaw Jankovic could be leading the race!!

well when you play more tournaments than anyone else in the top 30...what do you expect

It doesn't mean that she's better than the eventual players she will pass (Ree and Justine)

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Serena.

People still aren't giving JJ respect...this would be a big accomplishment no matter how many tournaments she plays, considering the way last year started for her.

Totally agree with you. Personally, I would be pleased if Jelena is among the BIG 8 in terms of the race at the end of the season. That would be a great achievement. But we have to wait and see.

GO JJ.

It's always a pleasure to see you too. Otherwise it would be really boring for us, right?

100% agreed.

People have to give her credit for being #1 of the year after 4-5 months playing.

Btw, I thought all tournaments counted in the Race, not only the best 17(?)

Btw, calculating the average pts won per tournament by each player, Jelena is definitely not that bad, ahead of Kuznetsova, Petrova, Hingis, Vaidisova, Venus). So it's not just the amount of tournaments, it's the quality too.

You are right.

She could play 50 tournaments and they would ALL count towards the RACE.
