What the HELL is Jankovic doing in Bangkok?!?

This has been her post-US Open schedule:
1 week off
Sep. 10 Bali
Sep. 17 Beijing
Week off
Oct. 1 Stuttgart
Oct. 8 Bangkok

She's played 4 out of 6 weeks, going from New York to Asia to Europe and now back to Asia to return to Europe in time for the championships and perhaps play other events in Europe before.

If she wins in Bangkok, she will win 140 points. However, she has played so many tournaments that her 17th tournament is 115 points, so the most her ranking can even go up is 35 points--a little low considering that she's #3 in the world with a shot to finish at #2 and make inroads to #1 next year!

As it stands, Jelena has 710 unused ranking points approximately (close to Eleni Daniilidou's ranking at #39 with 711 points) and if she wins Bangkok her unused ranking points will climb to 825, which would be good enough for #35.

Does anyone agree that she is setting herself up for a major burnout next year?

Every player gets injured. When it happens to Jelena, everyone will say "I told u so".
But injury happens to every player. She's healthy and enjoys long plane rides.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: What the HELL is Jankovic doing in Bangkok?!?

lets hope she doesnt get injured, thats the most important thing.

As for playing too much: well, its annoying but she enjoys playing that much and burnout is quite possible

It wasn't really a "week off" after US Open.. she lost on Wednesday I think. Her first Bali match was also on Wednesday?

I hope she is getting large appearance fees! If not, she is being very foolish with her scheduling.
