Jelena Jankovic and Althea Gibson - Contemporaries?

Quote:
Q. On opening night Monday Althea Gibson will be honored. Do you know anything about her and the role she played in tennis?
JELENA JANKOVIC: I don't know much about her. I was young when she was playing, so I don't really know much about her.
OMG Jelena

This isn't a Jelena-bashing thread.

So now speaking the truth is considered bashing? She has said numerous idiotic things in the past. I think that's indicative to her intellect. Now hush your mouth because you're about just as stupid as Jelena, and I don't have time to waste on people like you.

Unless Jelena was born in the late 1950s/early 1960s, I don't think anyone would find this funny. It's just pure ignorance. Fine, I won't say ignorant as it's a bit harsh. But if she doesn't know anything about a particular subject, she should just keep her mouth shut. But I understand that's hard for people like her (she has ADD).

Althea Gibson just isn't a big deal for people outside the US. We only see the person and not the skin color. So it's not surprising people like Roger and Jelena have no idea who she is or when she played.

Re: Jelena Jankovic and Althea Gibson - Contemporaries?

english is not her 1st language. Maybe she wanted to say something else and this fell out. But by writing all this stuf down, and seeing how many haters she achieved on this board in last couple of months, means she really became a true force. So keep your panties, cause she'll be bumping your faves in years to come!

NO


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

The maybe Jelena should have kept her crap to herself and just say she didn't know who Althea was. Don't you agree? Instead of pretending like she had some sort of knowledge as to who the legend was. The only thing that irritates me more than ignorance is lies. Jankovic is a liar and she's ignorant.
