Did Lindsay's spat/argument with Jelena Jankovic make Corina Morariu biased?

I am wondering because Corina, whom I usually like, was downright catty and snotty today towards Jankovic insinuating that she fakes her injuries, said she might be "dumb" and constantly made snide comments about her challenging line calls. I am wondering if Lindsay ragged on Jankovic so much to corina that that has made her biased. I mean Lindsay really went off on Jelena back in the fall and now all of a sudden Corina, Lindsay's good friend, is ragging on her left and right. At one point she even said that up until 64 44 that Vaidisova had been "the better player by far"

By the way, not hating on Vaidisova at all. Congratz to her! And, also, no Lindsay is not responsible for Corina's cattiness!

now Corina just said "i don't have a ton of sympathy for her" when Jelena is in pain. Get over yourself, Corina! She is not faking it! Everyone knows that Jelena was injured during Hopman cup!

She's obviously not much of a commentator...even if she believes those statements to be valid, that's just low.

Goodbye WTA and Jelena. It was nice being your fan once.

Pretty no-class comments coming from a commentator.

Corina sounds like a women plagued with insecurity and lacking in confidence.

What kind of low-rent TV station is this anyway?

Re: Did Lindsay's spat/argument with Jelena Jankovic make Corina Morariu biased?

I like Jelena but last week she was wrapped to the point she couldn't move her right leg and now she's losing to Nicole this close with that ailment?

With the comments about being dumb, obviously she wouldn't get to number three in the world if that's the case.

But we have to remember what Jankovic has said in the last few years.
In Dubai after losing to Lindsay in 2005, she made a comment about not putting the physical work in to be a top player because she didn't want to look all muscle bound.

That's a dumb comment and if you do it right after a match, some people might think you're also talking exclusively about a certain player.

Then there's the comments about her and black people.

Martina was pretty negative about her last week, not quite understanding how Jelena was so good in mixed doubles when she backs up when she hits volleys at the net.
Corina could even be talking from that viewpoint.

It might not have anything to do with Lindsay and it could have everything to do with Lindsay.
It's not the first time someone has gone out of their way to say something negative about Jelena though.

"Everybody always said I didn't get that job because my wife is white. If you're not strong enough to look through that then you have the issue."
-Charlie Strong, assistant head coach of the Florida Gators

Black head coaches in the SEC=0

if JJ doesn't take some kind of break from tennis she will end up permanently injured and burnt out then Corina will have to bitch at someone else

If Corina keeps it up she won't have a job by the time JJ gets burnt out. She's a neophyte...Martina N. can get away with this kind of thing because of her reputation and stature.

most commentators (ex players) are very biased. e.g. Virgin(ia) Wade is always putting down anyone playing Mauresmo

Well that's surprising since they two played few times doubles together...
Anyhow very low from Corina, no matter what, you shouldn't speak like that.

You know that's BS. She said nothing bad, and the source was the worst tabloid in Serbia. That's crap

Re: Did Lindsay's spat/argument with Jelena Jankovic make Corina Morariu biased?

I don't have sympathy for her either. She's forced herself to play after her nose surgery when she said herself she shouldn't play some silly Belgrade exhibition, she knew she shouldn't play Hopman Cup half crippled, retiring in TWO singles matches, and then she plays amazing tennis in Sydney after being basically in tatters since Beijing, arguably earlier. She probably was not faking her injuries, but come on, it's hard not to be critical. People have been criticizing her schedule since January '07, a lot of us thought it was crazy she played so much in Australia, then she just kept on playing anyway.

So when she comes to Sydney and asks for a trainer during a match, I'd like to think it's more of a preventative measure than anything else. But she deserves no sympathy, just like very few players do. Jankovic's line challenging can be irritating as well, but that's REALLY subjective though. Some people think it's cute. I personally hate how often she does it, but if she really thinks every line judge is out to get her...of course, these things are all issues on WTAW we speak of, but is this the forum for a commentator to voice their opinion? Probably not, especially from Corina. So I do know she shouldn't have said anything, before you cram this post down my throat. I merely agree with her on those things.

Calling Jankovic dumb is way unnecessary though, that's downright cruel. Aside from that, well, this just brings up the important question of how much we really want our commentators to say. You're going to get the opinions of most, unfortunately, so what do you do to stop it?

Corina, for all she's been through, is a bit of a bitch. She's needlessly haughty.

At the US Open, she was walking the grounds after a practice session, and two children asked her for autographs, and she really couldn't have been colder if she had tried.

No, I was not one of those children, I merely witnessed. I wouldn't really care to have her autograph on toilet paper, to be honest.
