Jelena Jankovic needs to play a lot of tournaments to be in the top 3

She´s the player with the most tournaments (28) played in the top 5 (whopping diference with Ivanovic, who played 20), in the top 10, she´s the second player with most tournaments (but Bartoli doesn´t even count, who played 31 tournaments). Look at Henin, who played only 15, even Maria, with an injured plagued year, is number 5 with 13 tournaments. So if JJ wants to reach number 2, she´ll have to play A LOT more!

Re: Jelena Jankovic needs to play a lot of tournaments to be in the top 3

From Rome 2006 to YEC 2007...

2006:
F - Los Angeles
SF - Strasbourg, US Open, Beijing, Guangzhou
QF - Rome, Rosmalen, Cincinnati, Stuttgart, Linz, Quebec City
4R - Wimbledon

2007:
W - Auckland, Charleston, Rome, Birmingham
F - Sydney, Rosmalen, Toronto, Beijing
SF - Dubai, Doha, Warsaw, Strasbourg, French Open, Los Angeles, Stuttgart
QF - Tokyo, Amelia Island, Berlin, US Open, Bali
4R - Australian Open, Indian Wells, Wimbledon

Tournament # lost prior to 4R: 11 (6 in 2006, 5 in '07).

By all means, she's maximized her talent and ability. She's done extremely well and I wouldn't have predicted a year and a half that strong for her ever. But this is a troll thread anyway, I was just bored.

That said, I think she's the real deal. I expect her to stay top 5 for quite some time. The tennis finally caught up to her in her final three tournaments of the year.

JJ definitely needs to endorse the quality over quantity philosophy

Re: Jelena Jankovic needs to play a lot of tournaments to be in the top 3

well, it would be enough if she did ok in the certain amount of tournaments that count for the rankings

but I bet she can't resist to play at least 10-12 tournaments above that limit

Yeah.

Re: Jelena Jankovic needs to play a lot of tournaments to be in the top 3

if she was mentally stronger she wouldn't have to play nearly as many. hopefully she'll be able to close out matches better

Venus Serena JJ Bethanie Vania Naomi
Petra S. Peng S. Zhang Su-Wei Vera Cici
Vesnina Sveta Crawford McHale Franny Zarina Sloane
Lepchenko Min Garbiñe

Kokkinakis Pospisil Coric Nishikori Berdych Huey Shapovalov

Thank you for this post.

She says she will be cutting it down - and as you say - this year it all caught up with her at the end and she was a shadow of the player she was earlier.

So to answer the OP - she should forget about playing loads of tournaments for her ranking. Loads of points she earned don't count anyway she played so many.

I think the main things Jelena should concentrate on are a sensible schedule, and improving her game - particularly the serve. And not worry about rankings at all. If she can improve - and there is definitely scope for her to improve on that service for a start - then the rankings will take care of themselves.

You know I really do feel for Jelena when she has to close out matches. All players find it difficult to close out matches. But with Jelena - it's much much harder because of that serve. Other players get nervous - but then get some free points on their serve which alleviates the pressure. JJ has to fight on every single point.

IMO The best way for her to get mentally stronger is to improve her serve so that she can get some more free points like the other top players get.

WRONG.... A lot fo Her tournies dont even count....i think it was said that one of her Title wins wasnt even gonna count towards her total score.... What Jelena needs to do is rest...so she cant be rested for the Grand slams do better in them. and she wont have a problem being #2... and depending on the year Venus and Henin have being #1
