Jelena Jankovic will never ever ever get tired?

How many tournaments has she played so far this year? If she keeps on playing at the pace she has, how many tournaments will she have played at the end of the year. 40? She's one of those people who never get fatigued. I'm not questioning her ranking or saying she doesn't deserve her current ranking. I have no doubt that she has earn it and has every right to be complemented on that. I'm just wondering if there's been any girl who played as much as she does in a year. I remember Amanda Coezter played quite many but not as many as Jankobich does. Well, she's probably the toughest ever on the tour.

She already has gotten tired. Refer to Wimbledon this year. And she weeks she had off after.

I think she plays too much. I'm afraid she may get bored of the sport if she continues to play at this pace. I think it wouldn't hurt her a bit with a couple weeks' off.

Re: Jelena Jankovic will never ever ever get tired?

Jelena has talked about having played too much and being burnt out since S'Hertogenbosch. She's going to have a lighter schedule in the fall and hopefully next year, that is, if she doesn't act like a kid in a candy store with tournament sign-ups.

How come no one asks if Marion's tired or played too much? She's played more tournies than JJ and is in the top 10 now.

Oh, and JJ's already had "a couple weeks off"...she likely needs a couple more tho.

I hope that was a spelling mistake!

One of the reasons she plays so much is because she doesn't like training, so she prefers to play matches, which is good for getting match tough (but I hope she takes some time off to improve her serve).

2 semifinals aren't high enough? Her draws aren't as easy as Maria's have been lately.

Re: Jelena Jankovic will never ever ever get tired?

She played RG SF, won in Birmingham and Runner up in s'Hertogenbosch and Wimbledon no wonder she is tired! She won't play Stuttgart like in 2006 that's for sure

Good luck to: Pironkova, Karatantcheva, Peng, Krajicek, Dushevina, Vesnina, Cetkovska, K&A Bondarenko, Oudin, Cornet, Tatishvili, Cibulkova, Olaru, Niculescu, Cirstea, Kleybanova, Larcher de Brito, Robson, Zahlavova Strycova, Rogowska, Marino... Would be even more...

Jelena mentioned that she felt worn out in the second set against Justine last week. Both girls gave tremendous effort in that match.

I don't expect Jankovic to have a long career. Maybe only 2-3 more years and then burnout.

She hasn't been playing that much these days really... I thought she would win the US Open series because she usually plays so much...

I ♥ Hingis

I think Jelena will enter 2 tournaments on a week in the next year.

NO ONE BUT DEMENTIEVA

I mean she's 22 , she must think more of winning grand slam than ranking , and this's nothing related to Masha.
