Jelena can win a slam

If Myskina can do it why cant Jelena

Jelena works harder then Myskina, Jelena has consistent results her best bet to win one if the French or the Open.

To be honest, 2004 was a really weird year on the tour- WS playing like crap, the Belgians injured.

Re: Jelena can win a slam

Ofcourse she can win a slam. She still has room to improve, and with a good draw, she's the one to do it.

Re: Jelena can win a slam

I think Jelena can. I just don't think Myskina is a valid comparison. With Justine out, the FO is wide open and Justine was knocked out early that year.

She's 23- at some point soon, her learning curve is going to flatten out.

She's 22. About the right moment to take her game to a next level. She's already done so since last year, and there's still room to improve. Many players also continued improving late in their career.

Re: Jelena can win a slam

Actually why not compare Myskina to Jelena.

Myskina wasnt a favorite for the FO she was a contender Jelena will be a contender for each slam.

French Open for Jankovic...but she'd need help from Tonya Harding to injure Justine...

Re: Jelena can win a slam

No idea if she will win a slam, but I think she can obviously. The age thing is a factor but she started playing later than most girls so that's why it's that way. It definitely shortens her window.

I figure if she was somewhat close to beating Justine and making the final last year, that may indicate good things for the future, but there's still things she needs to put work into imo before she wins one. That's the big question.

Re: Jelena can win a slam

Myskina was lucky........very lucky.

Re: Jelena can win a slam

she has the game but she can't keep it up mentally against henin.
i would imagine an in form serena would thrash janko as well.
but she can fight against venus, ivanovic, kuznetsova, and sharapova.

ROCK ON:
elena dementieva, serena williams, caroline wozniacki, ana ivanovic
david nalbandian, rafael nadal, andy murray, gael monfils, jo-wilfried tsonga
