So, what's the story? Is Jankovic injured or not?

And if she is, why is she in the Sidney draw? Wouldn't be wise to skip the tournament held a week before the GS?

She might be waiting to see how much better it gets in a day or two since she has a bye. I have a feeling she still might end up withdrawing before her match, but I hope it gets better because I was hoping she might even get that first grand slam win.

At AO? No way and I'm the biggest fan...
About the injury we'll know soon enough I guess. We already know that at HC she received many painful treatments and that the tournament doctor said she wasn't well enough to play singles in the finals.

Hopefully she knows what she is doing, but, based on her interview and the fact that she withdrew from 3 singles matches, I have doubts. An injury like that doesn't heal in 2 or 3 days.

Shouldn't you be busy, getting prepared for the big wedding - sorting out dresses etc.

If it's a tweaked hamstring, she should be pulling out of Sydney and even Melbourne as well. Take care JJ.

If she wasn't injured, then yeah at the AO. It's not like she's a shitty player. I didn't say I thought she was the favorite but it's not like she had NO chance.

Yeah I agree...but she didn't really have that great off-season preparation either but you never know with JJ.

she cant play sydney - she could barely move in the hopman cup, there is no reason to play it, apart from the points to defend but she could make up from them at the aussie open because she didnt go far in it last season
